Cheap Nike San Francisco 49ers Nick Bosa Jersey Authentic 2019

LOS ANGELES — Injured, idle and dejected, Nick Bosa headed west in the fall of 2018, leaving his dorm at Ohio State University for the warm climate of Southern California, where his older brother’s condo awaited.

The older Bosa, Joey, resided only 10 minutes away from the rehab facility where Nick planned to train. And so for the next couple of months, the Bosa brothers shared a space while they navigated divergent paths, Joey completing a playoff-bound season for the Los Angeles Chargers and Nick — as is documented on the ESPN+ series Draft Academy — preparing to be a high-round pick in the upcoming draft.

Their time together reaffirmed a thought Joey had long held — that Nick might be the better edge rusher among them.

“When it’s all set and done,” Joey said, “I think he will be.”

Joey, speaking days before what ended up being the Chargers’ final game this past season, was fully expecting Nick to be drafted No. 1 overall. Instead, the San Francisco 49ers took him No. 2, immediately after the Arizona Cardinals selected Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray.

Asked in what ways Nick was better, Joey said: “There’s a lot. He’s more flexible than me at this point in his career, and I just think he’s got a better understanding of the position right now. I mean, we’ll see. I intend to improve a lot more throughout my career, and I hope he does as well.”

Joey (6-foot-5, 269 pounds at the 2016 combine) and Nick (6-foot-4, 266 pounds at the 2019 combine) have similar frames and fancy the same number (97). Joey might be a little stronger and Nick might be a little faster, but their play has practically been indistinguishable thus far.

Joey, the third overall pick three years ago, compiled 28.5 sacks, 51 quarterback hits and 35 tackles for loss through his first 35 NFL games. Nick followed Joey from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in South Florida to Ohio State, compiling 13.5 sacks through his first two collegiate seasons. Before suffering a season-ending core muscle injury in the third week of his junior year, Nick was generating pressure on 21.2 percent of his pass-rush attempts, the second-best rate in FBS.

Nick is fully healthy now, enough so that he plans to take part in the 49ers’ rookie minicamp at the beginning of May. By that point, the Bosa brothers will no longer be roommates. The two spent many nights together on the couch over these past few months, watching TV and playing video games the way they did as kids.

Joey didn’t impart much wisdom on Nick.

He didn’t feel as if he needed to.

“People think we’re having these, like, deep life conversations about all this stuff,” Joey said with a laugh. “I mean he’ll ask for advice every once in a while, but he’s got stuff covered. He’s smart. He’s mature for his age, so he’s got a lot covered. He always just watches and listens, just kind of has his own way about things. He takes what I did, or does, and he makes it better.”

Cheap NFL San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick Jerseys Online

DAVIE, Fla. — Add Miami Dolphins safety Michael Thomas to the list of people who believe former starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s job status has been affected by his stance on social issues.

Thomas was one of several NFL players who last season knelt in protest during the national anthem to bring awareness to racial issues. The movement began with Kaepernick, who has yet to sign with another team despite throwing for 2,241 yards, 16 touchdowns, 4 interceptions and having a 90.7 passer rating with the San Francisco 49ers last season.

“Obviously there’s issues with that,” Thomas said of the consequences of Kaepernick’s activism. “Some people feel a certain type of way. You see a lot of people commenting about it. At this point it is what it is, but I wish Colin nothing but the best. He stood for something he believed in. A lot of people felt the same way, and quite frankly a lot of people were against it and how he chose to protest.

“I believe that, yes, it’s [his activism]. But at the same time I wish him nothing but the best moving forward. I hope he gets his opportunity.”

Thomas and his Dolphins teammate Kenny Stills took a knee before every game last season. Both have said they aren’t sure if they will continue to do so in 2017.

Thomas said progress is being made in regard to race relations but that there is still a long way to go. He addressed the situation this week involving former Miami Heat star LeBron James, who had a racial slur spray painted on a gate outside of his home in Los Angeles, as an example.

“He said it best yesterday: It doesn’t matter who you are,” Thomas said. “It is what it is as an African-American. That’s something you grow up dealing with. You can walk around all day with a smile on your face and do all the right things. But unfortunately you’re going to have to deal with some of these things.

“I think still a lot of people aren’t ready to accept that’s an actual fact, that’s an actual reality that some people in America still deal with. I’m not surprised and I hope it doesn’t surprise anybody when I say that I’m not surprised that happened to him. It can happen to anyone and he’s dealing with it the best way he can.”

Thomas is entering his fifth season and is competing for roles at multiple positions. He’s a special-teams captain, backup safety and nickel corner.

Thomas received Pro Bowl consideration for his play on special teams last year. This season Thomas is looking to grow in the secondary. He is competing with Bobby McCain for the nickel role and Nate Allen at safety.
