San Francisco Not Interested In Trading Holdout G Alex Boone

 

According to Matt Maiocco, teams have inquired about the availability of holdout G Alex Boone, but the 49ers are not interested in trading him.

  • Additionally, Jason Cole reports that the 49ers would want a first or second round pick in exchange for Boone.
  • Cole adds that the 49ers are not interested in re-negotiating Boone’s deal.

San Francisco has reportedly offered Boone an extension, which would add a few years to his current deal, rather than a new contract.

It seems that the sides have hit an impasse, though it does not appear that San Francisco is interested in moving Boone.  Their price tag is very high Рessentially a second round pick Рfor a veteran guard seeking a big extension.

Boone does have some leverage, as his replacement – G Joe Looney – has promise, but still needs work.

Both sides are likely hoping that as the season nears, positions become less entrenched.

Boone, 27, is entering the fourth year of a five-year deal and is slated to make $2 million for the 2014 season. He currently counts $2.6 million against the cap next 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.
