What's the highest price you would pay for Bosa before letting him walk?

All that said, Bosa is a different kind of dude. I'd be willing to lose out on Greenlaw and Huf to sign Bosa. So in this scenario i could go as high as Darnold Money.

That's probably going to happen anyway.

There is no market. He's not a UFA. The Niners are his market. Without the Niners the best he can do is his $17m this year and two years of tags.

The Niners aren't in a bidding war with a UFA.
Just mooch some welfare money like Favre lol
Pay hi TODAY!!!

The cap will keep going up.

This is where I am. Have some sort of rule, like the max a contract can be equals: Current Highest Salary at the Given position x 1.05 (a five percent increase). I am just tossing numbers around, but yeah, just make someone the highest paid player at their position and call it a day. I mean, truly, even if you make Bosa the highest paid, someone shortly is going to be paid a higher amount anyway. It's like buying a new GPU for your computer every time one comes out. Have fun with that endless chase.
Easily the highest paid non QB in the league. He's the most important player on this team. He knows it too.

I'm giving him whatever he wants if it ends this holdout. He knows what he means to us, so saying he has no leverage is way off. He knows this team will suffer without him on the field and the screams from the fans and negative press will make Lynch fold because sabotaging your season by not signing one of the best players in football might be something he could never recover from. He's already taking heat for Lance and now this? John Lynch isn't dumb, or at least I hope that he isn't. Make sacrifices elsewhere, not with our best player. It will suck to potentially lose guys like Dre, but I'm siding with Nick every single time no matter the cost. He's a young generational talent. You don't let guys like that go.

It is stupid to give him whatever he wants if it is outrageous. Based on your response you'd give him 50+ million a year if he wanted it. If there was no salary cap then pay whatever. He and his brother have some injury issues, and the Chargers are likely wishing they didn't sign Joey to that crazy contract. Joey has a blister and he doesn't play now that he got paid.
