Report: 49ers not looking to trade holdout guard Alex Boone
The San Francisco 49ers are receiving inquiries from multiple teams about offensive guard Alex Boone, but San Francisco is not interested in trading him unless it's for a first or second-round draft pick, reports CSN Bay Area.
Boone sat out the team's offseason program and has been holding out of the first four weeks of training camp. He's subject to fines of $30,000 daily, and does not plan to report to the team until he gets a new contract, according to CSN.
The guard has two years left on his current deal, which is scheduled to pay him $2 million this season and $1.2 million in 2015. NFL.com recently reported that the 49ers offered Boone a deal that would pay him among the top-12 of guards, but according to CSN, if that were the case, Boone would have already signed.
The 27-year-old has started every game for San Francisco over the last two seasons.
With Boone out, backup Joe Looney has been starting at right guard for the 49ers.
