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.

49ers reportedly turned down 2nd-round pick from Patriots for Jimmy Garoppolo

Whenever Seth Wickersham reveals a tidbit from his new book, "It's Better to Be Feared," examining the New England Patriots dynasty, Tom Brady, and his departure from the team, it always seems specifically directed at 49ers fans. And no, I'm not exaggerating. Earlier today, more news from Wickersham's book was revealed via ESPN scout Matt Miller, where it was reported that the Patriots allegedly offered a second-round pick for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Day 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft, to which the 49ers said no because they desired a first-rounder in return. The Patriots remained in the first round, selecting Mac Jones with the 15th overall pick, while the 49ers took Trey Lance after trading up to the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL



Donte Whitner breaks down 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo's biggest weakness

If you ask former San Francisco 49ers safety, Donte Whitner, a question, be prepared for the answer, because he doesn't hold back. Whitner was a guest on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks Show on Tuesday, and spoke on the 49ers current quarterback situation. When asked about what he has been seeing in Jimmy Garoppolo, Whitner answered, "He's only looking for Deebo Samuel. And you better believe the defense understands that. When you lead the team significantly in targets, the defense is going to key in on that. That was what happened on that touchdown, that interception throw to Xavier Rhodes." He is speaking of the play that sealed the 49ers fourth straight loss, on which Rhodes intercepted Garoppolo and almost ran it back for a touchdown. Whitner



Alex Mack on 49ers' QB situation: 'I want the guy who's going to win games'

The San Francisco 49ers might be approaching a crossroads. Eventually, a quarterback decision will need to be made. Jimmy Garoppolo is the team's undisputed starter right now. However, his injury history made the 49ers uncomfortable to the point that the team drafted Trey Lance this offseason. Lance is the future. He will eventually succeed Garoppolo. When that happens is anybody's guess. Garoppolo sustained a calf injury during Week 4, forcing Lance to start Week 5 — when the rookie suffered a knee sprain. Things are trending toward Garoppolo starting this weekend against the Indianapolis Colts. The veteran passer was out on the practice field with his



Alex Mack says fans shouldn't be concerned about 49ers rookie Aaron Banks' lack of playing time

The San Francisco 49ers have played five games this season. Their second-round draft pick, guard Aaron Banks, has been inactive for each of them. That has led many to question the selection. That's a high draft slot for a player who has yet to contribute this season. Veteran center Alex Mack joined KNBR this morning and was asked about his rookie teammate. What does Banks need to do to get on the football field for the 49ers? "Just keep putting the work in," Mack responded on the Murph & Mac show. "You know, he's a good dude. He works hard. He just has a couple of more things to learn and put the work in. And it's a credit to the other guards that it's not easy to break the starting lineup. We have a lot of depth here. "Aaron is
