Alex Boone turns down contract offer from 49ers

Aug 18, 2014 at 12:55 PM--




So much for not negotiating with players who do not report. According to NFL.com's Gil Brandt, the San Francisco 49ers have offered holdout Alex Boone a contract that would make him a top 12 paid guard -- and he turned it down.

The 27-year-old Boone has two years left on his existing contract, with base salaries of $2 million in 2014 and $1.2 million in 2015. He believes that he deserves more and has refused to report to the 49ers without a new contract.

Boone has started all 16 games in each of the last two seasons with the team. He has missed all of training camp and exposed him to nearly $900,000 in fines and forfeiture.

He can be fined another $85,000 if he were to miss the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys on September 7.

The 49ers' next preseason game will be on Sunday, August 24 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara against the San Diego Chargers.

The San Francisco 49ers embark on an offseason filled with more questions than answers. However, the main focus of the media will be on the team's quarterback situation.

I caught a touchdown from each one of them, so I don't really mind who's back there,

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, the San Francisco 49ers engaged in contract discussions with left tackle Trent Williams last week.

John Lynch doesn't see a need to restructure Jimmy Garoppolo's contract right now

The San Francisco 49ers are moving forward with the assumption that this year's salary cap will be set at $175 million. It will probably be a bit higher, but general manager John Lynch would rather start with the floor. "Anything that we get (above $175 million), I think, is going to be a bonus and gravy, and will help us," John Lynch told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on The TK Show podcast. "But if it's 175, we'll make it work, and I think we can keep a lot of these players together. You can't keep everyone, but I think we can prioritize. We'll have a very good plan, and I feel really good about our team, moving forward." Of course, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's
