Schad points out that Boone played for current Dolphins OL coach, Chris Foerster, while they were together in San Francisco from 2009 to 2015.
The Dolphins could really use some help at guard and Boone is among the best available options, so this is at least something worth keeping an eye on in the coming days.
Boone, 30, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State back in 2009. After seven years in San Francisco, Boone signed a four-year, $26.8 million contract that includes $10 million guaranteed with the Vikings as a free agent in March of last year.
Boone was set to make base salaries of $6.6. million over the remainder of the contract when the Vikings cut him loose as they cut their roster down to 53 players.
In 2016, Boone appeared in 14 games for the Vikings and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 37 guard out of 75 qualifying players.
