49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo says Nick Bosa’s past social media comments won’t be an issue
There has been a heck of a lot of focus on the social media past of San Francisco 49ers incoming rookie defensive lineman Nick Bosa, but his new teammates are insisting none of it will be an issue.
49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is singing the same tune, saying that Bosa’s opinions will not be a problem whatsoever.
“Not in the locker room. Those type of things aren’t even discussed,” Garoppolo said in an interview with Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney. “Once you get into the facility, it’s all about football, it’s all about being a good teammate and putting the team first.”
Garoppolo added that he has met Bosa and that he isn’t worried at all about how things might unfold.
“Nick seems like a good guy,” said Garoppolo. “I got the chance to meet him for a quick second when he first got drafted. We’ll bring him along right.”
Garoppolo’s comments are not all that different from cornerback Richard Sherman’s, who previously said that all that matters is that Bosa is a good teammate and comes prepared to work.
“It’s not like something where guys are like, ‘Hey man, what about what you said?’ No. No. If he can play, he can play. If he can’t play, he won’t be here,” Sherman said, per Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee. “But at the end of the day, that’s all that matters in football. Is he getting sacks on Sunday? Is he helping our team? Is he being a good teammate? Those are things that matter.”
San Francisco took Bosa, who played his collegiate football at Ohio State, with the second overall pick of the draft late last month.
