ESPN: Teams Attempting to Trade for 49ers Guard Alex Boone

National Football League (NEW YORK) — Several NFL teams have approached the San Francisco 49ers to see if the team is interested in trading holdout guard Alex Boone, according to ESPN.

Boone has been holding out since the beginning of the offseason. Sources say the two sides are far apart on a new deal and that Boone is willing to stay away from the 49ers until he receives a new contract.

The 27-year-old Boone has two seasons remaining on his current deal that will pay him about a total of $4 million.

Trading Boone will likely be a last resort for the 49ers. He has developed into one of the better guards in the NFL and the team would like to work out a contract extension with him.

Veteran Safety Steve Gregory Retires from the NFL

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — After eight seasons, veteran safety Steve Gregory is retiring from the NFL.

The Kansas City Chiefs signed Gregory last month to add depth to their secondary, but he announced his retirement in a statement over the weekend which was released via his agent David Canter.

“It is with tremendous respect, appreciation, and admiration for the game of football that I’ve decided to announce my retirement effective immediately,” Gregory said. “After entering the game as an undrafted free agent, I was fortunate to play twice as long as the average player.”

“I’m tremendously happy with my decision and being able to walk away from this great game both healthy and on my own terms,” he added. “I would be remiss in announcing my retirement without thanking my great family, coaches, teammates, scouts, trainers, agent, and all of the fans that have supported me along the way.”

Gregory, 31, spent the first six seasons of his NFL career with the San Diego Chargers, who signed him as an undrafted free agent back in 2006. He also played two seasons with the New England Patriots. He retires with seven interceptions, three sacks, and two touchdowns over 111 career games.
