San Diego Chargers Daily Links: Can Bolts and Bosa find compromise?

Your daily dose of San Diego Chargers news & notes from around the web.

Ex-Charger LB Donald Butler fighting to earn job with Cardinals - Eric Williams
Butler said he’s playing both inside linebacker positions. But if he wants to make the roster, he'll likely have to make an impact on special teams, something he did in the second half of the 2015 season for the Chargers.

Agent's Take: Making sense of the ongoing case of Joey Bosa vs. the Chargers - Joel Corry
Bosa's camp is willing to accept a contract without offsets where a portion of the signing bonus is deferred to 2017 or a deal with offsets but the entire signing bonus is paid in 2016. The Chargers want a contract which has offsets and signing bonus deferred to 2017. The two sides reportedly have been an impasse since late July where the Chargers still haven't responded to Bosa's latest offer.

Bosa plays chicken with Chargers - Ross Tucker
The other likely reason is that Bosa recognizes there is really no sense of urgency on his part and that the deal can only get better from here. That's the value of being the son of an NFL player (his dad is John Bosa, who played tackle for the Dolphins for three seasons); he gets the big picture. Bosa can sign the deal the Chargers currently have on the table anytime he wants. At this point, the only thing that can happen is that the terms of the contract can get better, not worse.

Chargers rookie Henry is fitting in - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
Though he said it’s still sinking that he’s an NFL player and that the great Gates is his mentor, Henry acknowledged that he can miss aspects of his family life, such as chicken parmesan entrees and soups his mother, Jenny, has mastered.
