What the hell is going on!?

This situation is getting a lot deeper between the Bolts and Joey Bosa. In my last article, I talked about the potential outcomes if Bosa chooses not to sign in the coming week. I predicted that Bosa would sign by today and would be ready to practice for FanFest.

We still have a lot of daylight to get this done today. The Chargers have yet to continue speaking with Bosa and Company, and there will be an outcome very, very soon if they don’t pick up the pace.

This has gone on far too long. Does Bosa even want to be a Charger at this point? The Chargers have an important date marked on their calendar–and that date would be Aug. 9 (this coming Tuesday). What happens on Aug. 9? Ohhhhh, the “Drama Bomb” will explode on the ninth if we don’t sign Bosa beforehand.

Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio laid it all out for us:

Here are a couple of notes on the Chargers-Bosa situation. First, the Chargers can trade him through August 9 only.

Second, if he doesn't sign by the Tuesday after Week 10, he can't play at all in 2016.

Third, if he doesn't sign this year, the Chargers would hold his rights until the start of the 2017 draft. He would then re-enter the draft.

This is getting pretty scary. The seat is very hot at this point for both parties, and the Chargers cannot let a talent like Bosa just walk out of our city like that. We literally would be wasting a top-five pick, which would be a complete shame and would demoralize the Chargers fan base at the same time.

A message to Tom Telesco and Company: DO NOT WAIT UNTIL AUG. 9. LET’S GET IN TOUCH WITH BOSA AND GET THE KID TO SIGN HIS CONTRACT. THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS.

A message to Bosa and Company: SHOW THIS ORGANIZATION AND THIS FAN BASE THAT YOU ARE DEDICATED TO THE BLUE AND GOLD. GET IN THAT OFFICE AND SIGN THOSE PAPERS. WE NEED YOU.

Keep your fingers crossed, fans. Let’s hope that we see some good news today on our favorite sports news apps. And get ready for FanFest tomorrow at the Q! Hopefully I will see you guys there–BOLT UP!
