Alex Boone planning to hold out...

Alex Boone skipped mandatory minicamp today and is planning on holding out until he receives a new deal. He currently has two years left on his original contract, and is the 38th highest paid guard in the NFL.

I am pretty disappointed to see Boone's stance. He didn't become a starter until 2012 and was an UDFA that the 49ers took a flier on after putting his drinking problems on full display leading up to the draft.

There are 64 starting guards in the NFL and after his past problems, Alex should be happy to be the 38th highest paid guard in the league. Alex needs to get to camp and prove his worth. He would have much more leverage entering a contract year after posting a 3rd straight (and maybe pro bowl) solid season as a starter.

Holding out on the team that gave you a lifeline in the league isn't a good look to me.
