Boone has started 73 games the past five years with the San Francisco 49ers and Vikings. He was a highly prized free agent acquisition by Minnesota last spring, signing a four-year deal worth $26.8 million.
He was very much a disappointment last year, as was Minnesota’s offensive line as a whole. The Vikings are obviously ready to simply move on from their mistake.
