The San Diego Chargers announced Wednesday they had pulled their offer to unsigned first-round draft choice Joey Bosa after he rejected their "best offer."
The Chargers said in a statement they presented Bosa with an offer on Tuesday night that included:
- an initial signing bonus payment that is larger than any rookie has received in the last two NFL drafts,
- more money in 2016 than every rookie in this year's class except the Philadelphia Eagles' Carson Wentz,
- and the "largest payment and the highest percentage of signing bonus received in the first calendar" of any Chargers first-round pick since the adoption of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement in 2011.
The Chargers said Bosa rejected the offer on Wednesday.
