Nick Bosa Drops Hint on Future Plans After 49ers Contract

Nick Bosa, the outstanding defensive tackle for the San Francisco 49ers, has a five-year plan in mind.

Bosa hinted to it recently in an interview with Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer. Bosa declared his desire to complete his career with the 49ers less than a week after signing his five-year, $170 million contract deal.

"My favorite part is that I'm still with the Niners," Bosa said, according to Breer. "And that I get to spend the majority of my career, if not the entirety of it, with this team." 

Not many people have the opportunity to work with such a wonderful institution." "There are a lot of teams in this league that don't care as much about their players as the Niners do."

It's incredible that I'll be here for a long time with this core group of players. It's almost as if you have to pinch yourself to believe in me and put so much in me. 

"At first, you feel a little bit of imposter syndrome," Bosa remarked. Bosa was forced to sit out contract talks at training camp due to a strike.

He returned in time to help the 49ers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 30-7 at Acrisure Stadium in Week 1.

"I was very confident talking to [the staff during the week]," Bosa told Breer. "And they believed in my ability to go out there and make some plays."

We wanted to keep it to 40 photos. I believe it was 35. The three-and-outs were ideal for getting me moving, so I didn't have to drive for too long."

Bosa just had two tackles, but the 49ers' overall defensive dominance kept the Steelers at bay all afternoon. Pittsburgh totaled 239 yards and converted 5 of 15 third-down opportunities.
