Tomlin understands the 49ers’ situation better than most. Two years ago, TJ Watt reported to training camp but did not participate in any team stints while awaiting a contract extension.

According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, there will need to be “significant progress” in negotiations for Bosa to suit up and take the field at kickoff.

Rapoport said the Niners have already agreed to make him the highest-paid defensive player in the league ahead of TJ Watt, but now it’s about trying to match Aaron Donald’s average annual value of $31 million.

Bosa is one of the best defensive players in the league like TJ Watt or Donald. An impact player on the field with the ability to rush quarterbacks and the ability to stop the running game.
