Standing firm on upfront bonus money and offset contract language, Bosa did not report with his teammates Friday, per NFL Media's Steve Wyche.
Bosa is pushing for all of his bonus money to be paid in full, per Wyche, while the team insists on paying in two installments.
The Bolts want to be consistent about how they do business. They are loath to set a precedent, not only in San Diego but also for the rest of the league.
In the meantime, both sides are entrenching.
After speaking with general manager Tom Telesco on Friday, Wyche was left with the belief that this staredown will not end until Bosa tells his agent that it's time to play football.
Here's what else we learned from Friday's action in training camps around the league:
The dotted line
- Andre Johnson's AFC South odyssey now includes Nashville. The Titanssigned the 35-year-old receiver ostensibly to set a professional example for the young players, including enigmatic wideout Dorial Green-Beckham. With DGB, Kendall Wright, Rishard Matthews and rookie Tajae Sharpe ticketed for the Week 1 roster, Johnson could be competing with Harry Douglas and Justin Hunter for the final spot at wide receiver.

Who caught it better?
It didn't take long for Beckham to respond with a brilliant off-balance, one-handed catch of his own. The incredible is now routine for the game's most athletically gifted player.
Stars or subs?
"First of all, I wasn't surprised," Peppers said, via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "We've been doing that since the spring. But there comes a time when you can't play as much, you can't play as many plays, you can't exert yourself as much, particularly at this time of the year.
"I'm perfectly fine with that."
