San Francisco 49ers rookie edge rusher Nick Bosa is headed to the NFL Players Association’s “rookie premiere,” which is set to take place May 16-19 in Los Angeles. Bosa wasn’t the only member of the 49ers invited to the event. Second round pick WR Deebo Samuel will be as well.
According to the NFLPA press release, the rookie premiere is the first major business and marketing event featuring NFL players since becoming professionals. The 40 rookies that are going can get a head start on their endorsement careers by getting in front of some big-name brands for marketing purposes. Of the 40 rookies, Bosa was the only player that was invited on the defensive side of the ball.
“The NFLPA Rookie Premiere is an unparalleled opportunity for partners to engage with tomorrow’s most influential athletes” said Ahmad Nassar, President, NFL Players Inc. “For the first time as professionals and following in the footsteps of Russell Wilson, Saquon Barkley and Baker Mayfield, this year’s rookies will learn about the business of football from union leadership as they start to build a plan to succeed beyond their playing careers while connecting on a personal level with partners who share their passion for the game.”
