Chargers HC Mike McCoy on the message to his players so Joe Bosa contract situation does not become a distraction: "We all want him here. He knows that.

San Diego's standoff with Joey Bosa looks awfully familiar. The team also took a while to come to terms with its first-round pick in 2001 (LaDainian Tomlinson), 2002 (Quentin Jammer) and 2004 (Philip Rivers, via trade). Antonio Gates also held out for a new deal in 2005.
