SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A person with direct knowledge of the contract says holdout right guard Alex Boone has agreed to terms on a new $6 million, two-year contract that replaces the two years remaining on his previous deal.
Boone, represented by the agency of Schwartz & Feinsod, is expected to join the 49ers as soon as Monday as they prepare for their Week 1 game at Dallas on Sunday.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday because the team had yet to announce Boone's return. He missed the Niners' offseason program and was subject to fines for his absences from the mandatory minicamp and training camp. Those fines will be waived, the source said.
Boone's presence will be felt for an offensive line that has struggled to protect quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the preseason.
