Report: 49ers & Alex Boone Reach Agreement On A Reworked Contract

 

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the 49ers and G Alex Boone have reached an agreement on a reworked contract and he is expected to report to the team in the next 24 hours.

  • Pro Football Talk reports that Boone’s new contract increases his “total payout” in the next two years from $3.7 million to $6 million during this time.
  • Mike Garafolo reports that Boone’s contract included incentives that can pay him up to $8 million per year.
    • Ian Rapoport mentions that the incentives are tied to Boone being an All-Pro selection.
  • PFT adds that the 49ers have waived all fines and bonus forfeitures for Boone that came from holding out.
  • Boone is under team control through the 2016 season.
  • Jason Cole reports that Boone’s new deal prevents him from being franchised after the final year.

Boone has been holding out for a new deal for awhile now, which led to plenty of trade rumors in recent weeks.

San Francisco obviously caved on their stance of not negotiating long-term deals with players who weren’t with the team, but the early results from their offensive line most likely forced their hand in the matter.

Boone, 27, was entering the fourth year of a five-year deal and was slated to make $2 million for the 2014 season.

Boone moved from tackle to guard two seasons ago and it paid off in a big way for the 49ers, as he graded out as the No. 3 guard in the 2012 season according to Pro Football Focus. However, he regressed some last year when he was rated as the No. 40 guard out of 81 qualifying players.
