The San Diego Chargers started training camp without top draft pick Joey Bosa and no one knows when the St. Thomas Aquinas grad will begin his professional career.
On Monday morning, NBC’s Pro Football Talk reported that Bosa and the Chargers haven’t spoken since Thursday after San Diego made an offer to the third overall pick from Ohio State.
According to PFT as well as reports from the San Diego Union-Tribune, one of the sticking points is whether the Chargers will pay Bosa his entire signing bonus this season.
The Union-Tribune writes Bosa’s bonus is going to be a shade over $17 million and the Chargers would like to spread out that bonus as they have with other players.

As far as a Bosa holding out, well, the Union-Tribune points out that’s nothing new.
Back in 1987, a first-round pick of the Dolphins named John Bosa sat out most of training camp before signing a few weeks before the start of the season.
