San Francisco 49ers star Nick Bosa proved himself to be one of the league’s most formidable players this past season.
For his troubles, the former No. 2 overall draft pick was selected as the NFL Defensive Player of the Year for 2022-23. The honor came three years after he was originally named the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Obviously the Niners came up short in the playoffs, but that wasn’t a byproduct of anything Bosa did. They simply didn’t have any healthy quarterbacks.
While Bosa’s professional life seems to be firing on all cylinders right now, his personal life is a bit more up in the air.
Bosa’s ex-girlfriend, Jenna Berman, seemed to send him a very public message via social media recently.

“Rule #1 never be #2,” she wrote.
Obviously people can debate whether that message was directed at Bosa or not, but it’s hard to see how it isn’t. And fans definitely picked up on the subtext.
“Bosa punching air [right now],” one fan replied.
This isn’t the first time Berman has seemingly launched a subliminal jab Bosa’s way. She sent him a pretty wild video message a little while ago, and then went a somewhat unique route when it came to showing she was over him.
Bosa, for his part, has not publicly acknowledged Berman in any capacity.
If it feels like the 49ers’ star players have nonstop girl drama following them around, it’s because they do.
Just this week, quarterback Trey Lance had to fend off some female rumors of his own. Before that the team’s other quarterback, Brock Purdy, watched as wild photos of his girlfriend and sister went mega-viral.

It will be interesting to see if Bosa ultimately responds to Berman in some capacity going forward.
So far the public messages have seemed pretty one-sided.
Will that change at some point in the foreseeable future? Time will tell.
