Niners' Boone ends holdout

Sept. 1, 2014 at 8:31 PM   |   Comments

San Francisco 49ers guard Alex Boone finally reported to the team on Monday after staging a prolonged holdout over dissatisfaction over his contract.

NFL.com reported that the Niners have agreed to increase Boone's base salary over the final two years of his contract. The fifth-year lineman will now earn $6 million with an additional $2 million in incentives over the life of the deal.

Boone had been slated to make $3.7 million between 2014 and 2015 on the four- year extension he signed near the end of the 2011 season.

The 49ers later announced that Boone passed a physical. The team will request a roster exemption with him unlikely to be ready for San Francisco's regular- season opener at Dallas this Sunday.

Boone has started all 32 games at right guard for San Francisco over the past two seasons and emerged as a key part of an offensive line that has helped the 49ers to back-to-back NFC Championship games as well as a Super Bowl appearance.
