So are we at the point now where a trade is really possible??? I know we've only had one preseason game and I think a trade would be a huge mistake!
I don't think any team is willing to part ways with what the 49ers would require to have the trade make sense. IMO, there are two positions the 49ers would most likely require for a swap: Quality CB or Quality DT. Very few teams have a surplus of Quality at either position.
So, Boone sits until he financially has to come back.
Well, the trade would almost certainly be for draft pick(s). In theory, I am not opposed to trading Boone for a 2nd or 3rd round draft pick. That is pretty good value in exchange for an UDFA. My preference is still to use the Boone situation to send a message. Do give him an extension (unless he reports), impose all of the fines, and generally move on without him. When he reports, he should be slotted as a backup until he wins his job back.
If he does not play for two years, he will have almost no value as a FA.
