COSTA MESA, California. – Anthony Lynas discussed many topics about Los Angeles shippers reporting on training camp on Wednesday, but one thing he didn’t have to discuss was the toil with one of his star players.
Any chance of this happening became Tuesday night when the franchise agreed to extend a five-year contract that would allow high-speed Joey Bosa to become the highest-paying NFL defensive player.
“Joey is tied up for a while and we’re all happy about that. We have other guys with whom contracts are made, but time will tell,” Lynn said. “It’s one less distraction you have to deal with.”
Rope, who is starting her fourth season as a coach, is well aware of how distraction distraction can affect everyone.
Melvin Gordon, who ran last year, missed the camp and didn’t report until the fourth week of the regular season. It ended up averaging just 3.8 yards per shipment, compared to 5.1in 2018, and was out of sync for most of the season. Gordon finished signing with Denver out of season.
“I didn’t succeed with Melvin last year, but I’m glad we did it now,” Lynn said. “It’s my job to put these players together and make them feel like Superman. When they want to get paid like Superman, I back off.”
The Bosa extension is worth $ 135 million, including a guaranteed $ 102 million. It goes beyond the five-year, $ 125 million extension signed by Cleveland’s Myles Garrett two weeks ago.
Lin said all 86 players on the list reported the camp and he didn’t know someone should be on the COVID-19 reserve list. Players can get on the list due to contact with infected individuals or due to a positive test.
He also added that no player had approached him for a chance to give up the upcoming season.
Last Saturday, newcomers were announced who were already preparing to train and walk with the coaching staff. The whole team will not be on the field until Monday.
Lino’s early message to the team reiterated that this is far from being a normal training camp due to available coronavirus protocols and canceled pre-season games. He also proclaimed self-discipline.
“Every day has been chaos. We need to rejoice in the chaos. We need to think about our players and emphasize their importance,” he said. “The goals haven’t changed, but the most disciplined teams will move forward. We have two opponents – our own schedule and COVID-19. Both game plans are equally important.”
Lynn also doesn’t have much time to prepare for a team that has a lot of changes in critical positions after being disappointed 5-11 last season. Tyrod Taylor is in the driver’s seat to start the race against Bengal, but first-round judge Justin Herbert will also receive a share of his repetitions. Austin Ekeler takes the lead back and the offensive line will have at least three new starters.
In defense, Chris Harris comes from Denver and, along with Casey Hayward Jr. and safe Derwin James, for who has the potential to be one of the league’s top rivals.
“If you’re late or slow, this camp will be a challenge,” Lynas said. “We have to be creative when we practice because we’ll have to do more, but we have some good veteran coaches.”
