Chargers announce they've signed Joey Bosa to 4-year deal

SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Chargers say they've signed rookie defensive end Joey Bosa to a four-year contract.

The announcement late Monday morning came five days after the two sides went public in their nasty spat over payment of Bosa's $17 million signing bonus and whether the contract would have offset language.

The Chargers threatened last Wednesday to reduce their offer to Bosa under the assumption he wouldn't be ready to play a full season. Bosa, the No. 3 overall pick out of Ohio State, was the last rookie to sign.

It also came a day after San Diego's defense played poorly in a 23-10 exhibition loss at Minnesota.

There was no immediate indication of what led to the deal getting done.
