Alex Boone signing with the Minnesota Vikings

Mar 9, 2016 at 8:52 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers' weakest unit, their offensive line, got a little worse today. G Alex Boone will be signing with the Minnesota Vikings once free agency kicks off at 1 PM (PT) today, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.


NFL Network's Ian Rapport reports that Boone was the Vikings guard of choice after former Baltimore Raven Kelechi Osemele. Osemele will sign a lucrative deal with the Oakland Raiders.

Boone is one of four remaining 49ers unrestricted free agents. The others are WR Anquan Boldin, RB Reggie Bush, and K Phil Dawson.

Seeking a new contract, Boone held out of the 49ers' 2014 training camp. He was recently rated by Pro Football Focus as the fifth best guard available in free agency. Boone was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State in 2009. He has been selected to two Pro Bowls (2013, 2015).

NFL.com lists re-signing Richard Sherman as an offseason move 49ers should make

The 49ers are mostly set when it comes to how their 90-man roster will look when training camp gets underway in July, but there's at least one unsigned player who looms large as a possible addition the team could make before the players return to Santa Clara. That player of course is cornerback Richard Sherman, who has yet to find a team after playing with the 49ers the past three seasons. Whether the 49ers and Sherman decide to reunite for another go-round remains to be seen. But NFL.com columnist Jeffri Chadia thinks continuing the relationship would make sense for both sides as he listed the 49ers re-signing Sherman as one of five big moves NFL teams should make in the coming months. "As of right now, the best fit for Sherman remains the 49ers,"
