Joey Bosa’s Brother, Nick Bosa | Early Life

The younger son of the Bosa family, Nick, was born on October 23, 1997, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 

He was born to Cheryl Bosa and John Bosa and is the second child of the Bosa family. His older brother, Joey Bosa, is also a defensive end for the Los Angeles Chargers. 

The involvement of the Bosa family in the NFL goes back to the time of their grandfathers’ contribution. 

Some families appear to be destined for NFL glory. Joey and Nick’s grandfather Palmer Pyle is the foundation of the Bosas’ NFL success.

Between 1960 and 1966, Pyle was a member of the Baltimore Colts, Minnesota Vikings, and Oakland Raiders.

Similarly, Joey and Nick’s father, John Bosa, played professional football.

From 1987-1989, John Bosa played as a defensive end with the Miami Dolphins. We can guess that their father’s position inspired the two Bosa sons. 

John Bosa was the 16th overall choice in the 1987 NFL Draft. His kids took up the legacy and carried it even further. 

Fortunately, the family line in NFL doesn’t end there; the Bosa brothers’ uncle Eric Kumerow and their cousin Jake Kumerow have also been a part of the NFL’s legacy. 


Despite his interest in sports, Nick Bosa also prioritized his education equally. He attended St. Thomas Aquinas in his hometown, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 

There, Bosa was a starter in his school for four seasons and a first-team all-state performer on several occasions.

He was considered a five-star recruit and was ranked among his class’s best players during his academic days. 

Later, he joined the Ohio State University to continue playing college football. 

Joey Bosa’s Brother, Nick Bosa | Career

College Career

In 2016, Nick Bosa played in all 13 games for Ohio State as a true freshman, making 29 tackles, seven for a loss, and five sacks.

During his sophomore season, Nick was named the Buckeyes’ starting defensive end in seven games.

Similarly, for his 32 total stops (14.5 for a loss) and a team-leading seven sacks, Bosa was selected unanimously First-team All-Big Ten and the Smith-Brown Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year. 

He added two pass breakups, eight quarterback hurries, and a blocked kick. 

Unfortunately, on September 20, 2018, he underwent core-muscle surgery and was ruled out indefinitely. 

Thus, Nick Bosa announced his withdrawal from Ohio State for the rest of the season on October 16.

In addition, he also opted to skip his senior year and joined the 2019 NFL Draft after the season ended. 

Journey To Professional Career

Most experts and scouts predicted Bosa to be the top overall selection in the draft coming out of Ohio State.

Due to his outstanding skill, he was invited to the NFL Scouting Combine as one of the top prospects at the draft.

He accomplished all mandatory combine and positional drills except for the 10-yard and 20-yard splits. 

At the combine, Bosa got the opportunity to meet and interview with renowned 8 NFL teams.

The San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bosa’s political opinions and provocative tweets, such as labeling Colin Kaepernick a “clown,” express support for the U.S.

President Donald Trump, and “liking” a post on Instagram with racist and homophobic insults as hashtags, drew criticism a week before the selection.

Later, acknowledging his hard work and skills, the San Francisco 49ers picked him in the first round with the second overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Season 2019

After being drafted, Nick Bosa signed a 4-year contract with the 49ers worth $33.5 million.

In addition, the contract featured a $22.5 million signing bonus and a fifth-year option. 

In Week 1, the younger Bosa made his NFL debut against the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

During the 31–17 win on the road, he recorded three tackles and sacked quarterback Jameis Winston once.

Similarly, in Week 5, with the help of his contribution, the team earned a 31-3 victory over the Cleveland Browns. 

Halfway into the game, Nick Bosa sacked Baker Mayfield twice, earning the NFC Defensive Player of the Week. 

Bosa sacked Kyle Allen twice and had his professional interception in the next game, a 51-13 triumph against the Carolina Panthers. 

The Bosa brothers outshined everyone on the field; while Nick Bosa was honored with the NFC Defensive Player of the Week, his older brother, Joey Bosa, was voted for AFC Defensive Player. 

In 16 games and 14 starts, Bosa had 47 tackles, nine sacks, a forced fumble, two fumble recoveries, two pass deflections, and an interception.

During the 27–10 triumph over the Minnesota Vikings in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, Bosa sacked Kirk Cousins twice.

Bosa received the AP NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Award at the NFL Honors. However, his Father accepted the award on his behalf as he was in Miami for the Super Bowl. 

During the 31-20 loss to the Kansa City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV, he had a strip-sack on Patrick Mahomes.

Season 2020

The 2020 season for Nick Bosa was a bit unfortunate as compared to his previous season. During Week 2 of the 2020 season, he suffered a torn ACL against New York Jets. 

This led him to be ruled out for the rest of the season. Similarly, on September 23, 2020, he was placed on an injured reserve.

At the time of his recovery, he hired a private chef and took on a strict, protein-heavy diet.

Nick Bosa To Be A Full Participant

It was reported that Nick Bosa was confined to solo workouts since the start of the training camp late last month, July 2020.

The team’s strategy was gradually reintegrating the edge rusher into the lineup through position drills with the rest of the defensive line.

The San Francisco 49ers created a training plan that allowed him to take a day off between his three sessions to focus on his health and healing.

Bosa and the 49ers both hinted at a comeback in Week 1.

At the time, the 49ers anticipated that the pass rusher would fully participate in practice, increasing the possibility of that plan becoming a reality.

Season 2021 

In Week 1, he returned to the field on September 12. He once sacked Jared Goff during the game and had 4 solo tackles and 3 tackles for loss.

While playing against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11, he received his 10th sack of the season, shattering his rookie-season sack total of nine.

He ended the season with 15.5 sacks, the fourth most in the league.

Season 2022

Bosa’s four-year rookie contract was signed for an additional year by the 49ers on April 25, 2022.

He also received NFC Defensive Player of the Month for November, in December, as he recorded 5 tackles for a loss, 3 sacks, and 10 quarterback hits.
