Report: 49ers guard Alex Boone to end holdout
The 27-year-old Boone will sign a two-year deal with San Francisco, with an increase in salary and incentives if he reaches the Pro Bowl, Schefter reports. Boone, who was set to earn up to $4 million the next two seasons under his old deal, can also not be given the franchise tag once his new deal expires, according to Schefter.
The 6-foot-7, 330-pounder amassed $1.2 million in fines during his holdout, but "sources declined to comment how those fines would be handled or whether they would be worked into Boone's new deal," Schefter reports.
Boone, an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State in 2009, has started every game for the 49ers the last two seasons.
