Chargers’ Anthony Lynn Happy Over Joey Bosa’s New Contract



Joey Bosa

Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn is excited that the team was able to lock-up pass rusher Joey Bosa on a long-term contract, one that made Bosa the highest paid defensive player in the league.

“Joey is tied down for a little while and we’re all excited about it. We have some other guys with contracts coming up but time will tell,” Lynn said, according to the Associated Press’Joe Reedy, via ProFootballTalk. “It’s one less distraction you have to deal with.”

The Chargers inked Bosa to a five-year, $135 million contract extension earlier this week.

Lynn pointed to the failed contract negotiations with former running back Melvin Gordon, and how he was pleased that things worked out fine with Bosa.

“It didn’t work out with Melvin last year but glad it worked out now,” Lynn said. “It’s my job to build these players up and make them feel like Superman. When they want to get paid like Superman I step back.”
