Joey Bosa and our Salary Cap(tin Comeback)


The trade proposals

Joey Bosa (22 M savings for Chargers in salary cap according to over the cap)

For

2023 3rd round, Ryan Kelly and Kwity Paye

Why

Chargers

They will get a top center to replace Linsley and a promising DE who's coming off of a double digit sack season. If you add Bosa, Linsey and cutting Kendricks the Chargers gain roughly 37 million in cap relief (projected to be -45M) which could be more if they extend Kelly.

Joey Bosa has been banged up most of his career so it could be time to cut bait.

Colts

This is a calculated gamble. Bosa base salary of 15M (24) and 17M (25) is very palatable compared to what top WRs are getting. Pairing him with DeForest Buckner, Dayo and Samson Ebukam maintains if not exceeds our current lineup. Bosa has injury issues but with players playing longer than before especially at his position would he be extra motivated to play through dings for another contract.

Connections
