The 49ers just made Nick Bosa the highest-paid defender in NFL history, meaning Twitter had something to say.

The San Francisco 49ers collectively can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that All-Pro edge Nick Bosa isn't going anywhere for an awfully long time.

And they know that Bosa, who held out from training camp and the preseason while awaiting a new contract extension, will be available for the Niners' 2023 season opener on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday.

That's because ESPN announced on Wednesday that Bosa and San Francisco reached an agreement on a five-year, $170 million extension that'll officially make the reigning Defensive Player of the Year the highest-paid defender in NFL history.

Considering Bosa's importance to the 49ers defense, it's certainly worth it.

The 49ers are already pressed up against the salary cap this year and next, although having quarterback Brock Purdy on his very-cheap rookie contract will make things easy.

Nevertheless, some of the reactions pouring in from Twitter and elsewhere on social media are pretty golden.

Let's take a look at what players, fans and analysts all had to say about Bosa's record-breaking extension.

One of Bosa's teammates, linebacker Fred Warner, was pretty happy that Bosa will be back soon.

And offensive tackle Trent Williams was happy to see the holdout come to an end, too, saying that the whole situation had an impact within the locker room:

On top of that, defensive tackle Arik Armstead shared his own reaction on Instagram, which is quite entertaining:

But this might be one of the funnier reactions you'd see:

In the other conference, Kansas City Chiefs star defensive tackle Chris Jones is watching his own holdout not generate Bosa-like results, which prompted Pro Football Focus' own Twitter reaction that's worthy of a chuckle:

Fortunately, both for Bosa and the Niners, it's not the other way around.
