The San Francisco 49ers and superstar defensive end Nick Bosa are currently in contract talks, with the two sides struggling to see eye-to-eye right now, even though training camp is well underway with the team’s first preseason game against the Las Vegas Raiders less than a week away.
The consensus as of right now is that the 49ers are on the verge of making Bosa a very wealthy man, as he could very well reset the market for pass rushers in the NFL with his new deal.
Obviously, putting together a contract that lucrative that will impact the entire league is going to take some time, as it clearly is in the Bay Area.
Fortunately for Bosa, head coach Kyle Shanahan isn’t all that concerned about the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year missing training camp, via 49ers on NBCS.
"I don't know if Bosa's ever done a training camp, and he's done pretty good."

With Bosa being among the league’s elite pass rushers, Shanahan isn’t worried about the star defensive end coming into camp or Week 1 of the upcoming season ready to play, as he says that he doesn’t know if Bosa has ever gone through a training camp with the team yet and it hasn’t mattered.
Saying this could put Shanahan in some hot water with his players, as they might start to wonder why they’re at camp, but it’s hard to argue with his stance because Bosa is the real deal and doesn’t merit concern due to his body of work thus far in the league.
However, it will be interesting to see when things do come together for Bosa and the 49ers in terms of these contract talks and if he does reset the market with a record-breaking deal.NEXT: Kyle Shanahan Discusses Brock Purdy's Rise In 2022 Season
