Joey Bosa has not agreed to a contract with the Chargers. Sam Dekker is judging him for it.
The former Wisconsin basketball star tweeted, sarcastically, that Bosa’s veteran teammates are “really gonna respect him.”

The Chargers released part of their contract offer to Bosa, but his camp rejected it and the two sides are still “nowhere” in contract negotiations. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft is the only first rounder still unsigned. The two sides are far apart on bonus deferrals, mainly.
Last week, former Ohio State star and longtime NFL running back Eddie George said Bosa’s teammates wouldn’t think any less of him because they understand it’s a business.
“Teams will screw you,” George told TMZ. “So you gotta make sure the language is perfect.”
Dekker was the 18th overall pick by the Rockets in the 2015 NBA Draft. He played in just three games as a rookie before back surgery caused him to miss three months. He spent most of the year in the D-League.
