49ers don't want to trade Alex Boone

The San Francisco 49ers and holdout offensive guard Alex Boone remain in a holding pattern.

There's no end in sight to the contract dispute.

And the 49ers don't want to trade him, according to Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area.

The 49ers are seeing a first-round or second-round pick for Boone, which won't happen.

So, the standoff continues involving Boone, who's due a $2 million base salary this year and could be fined about $1 million for missing a month of training camp with daily fines of $30,000.

Joe Looney is starting in place of Boone.
