Boone Signs Extension Through 2015

Posted by Alex Espinoza on December 8, 2011 – 6:30 PM

The San Francisco 49ers today announced they have signed T Alex Boone to a contract extension through the 2015 season.

“We are very pleased with the progress that Alex has made since joining the team in 2009,” said General Manager Trent Baalke. “He really is a great example of what hard work, dedication and focus can do to further a young player’s career. The 49ers are very happy for Alex and look forward to him capitalizing on this opportunity.”

Boone (6-8, 300) was originally signed by the 49ers as an undrafted free agent in April of 2009, and went on to spend the entire season on San Francisco’s practice squad. In 2010, he made the opening day 53-man roster and was inactive for the first 15 games before making his NFL debut vs. Arizona (1/2/11). This season, Boone has played in all 12 games, seeing action in short-yardage situations and on special teams.

A 24-year old native of Lakewood, OH, Boone starred collegiately at Ohio State, where he earned All-America honors as a senior. He played in 46 games (33 starts) and was a two-time All-Big Ten selection.

    resign goldson, carlos, bowman, and kyle williams. i know if kyle had more reps he would be like another version of desean jackson which is what we need in our receiving core. we already have tall physical WR like crabtree, edwards, morgan, but i would love to see SF start using faster WR like steelers(antonio brown,wallace,sanders) those are the playmakers for certain types of routes.

    the first football game i ever watched was when the 49ers beat t5he broncos in the superbowl is was 9 been a 9er fan ever since. This is the best team we have had in long time resign them all, lets turn those field goals in to touchdowns and we will be unstopable.
