More on Nick Bosa’s record-setting extension with the San Francisco 49ers

At long last, Nick Bosa has been paid by the 49ers.

Reports surfaced Wednesday afternoon that the San Francisco 49ers and the defensive end have agreed to a five-year, $170 million extension. The deal makes Bosa the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history, surpassing Aaron Donald of the Los Angeles Rams. His contract also includes $122.5 million guaranteed and a $50 million signing bonus, the most for a non-quarterback in league history.

The deal was reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter Wednesday, with local outlets confirming after.
