Jim Harbaugh Hasn’t Communicated With Alex Boone Since the Start of San Francisco 49ers Training Camp
Jim Harbaugh didn’t have much to say when asked about the ongoing holdout of Alex Boone.
“I haven’t communicated [with him] since camp began,” said Harbaugh. “I think it’s in the life cycle of we’re in camp and the focus is on the 2014 season.”
Harbaugh took a similar tact to that of his players when pressed on the topic.
“You’ve heard some of the other players talk about it when you ask them. They don’t think it’s there place to talk about another man’s contract or situation. We’re at the cycle where that’s what we choose to, that’s the stance we choose to take.”
Offensive coordinator Greg Roman deflected the issue when asked about it on Saturday, and instead focused on the veteran linemen in camp.
“Somebody goes down, it’s next man up. It’s not the first time it’s happened and that’s what training camp is for. So, really, like our mentality on our offensive line, the feel I’m getting from them this year starting in the offseason. It’s [Joe] Staley and the veteran guys, just the leadership, that kind of attitude that they bring every day to work. It’s something that I can tell that they’re going to have one of those years.”by
