Alex Boone appeared to be in good position to make San Francisco’s roster heading into final cuts, but can breathe a little easier now that the 49ers have finalized their 53-man roster.
Boone, a once promising college player out of Ohio State, had to battle issues with drinking just to get a shot in the league. But the former practice squad player’s commitment to sobriety and hard work on the field turned his chance with the 49ers into a roster spot.
While the offensive tackle’s future in the NFL is no guarantee, Boone has at least made the final cuts for now.
