SANTA CLARA – Vernon Davis and Alex Boone can now officially be classified as holdouts.

Davis, the third highest-paid tight end in the NFL, and Boone, who ranks 38th on the list of offensive guards, did not show up at the beginning of a team meeting Tuesday morning for the opening of 49ers’ mandatory minicamp, sources said.

The 49ers’ first practice of minicamp is scheduled to begin Tuesday at 3 p.m.

Per the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, any player who does not attend his team’s three-day mandatory minicamp is subject to a $69,455 fine.

Davis and Boone have not taken part in the first eight weeks of the 49ers’ voluntary offseason program. In the process, Davis forfeited a $200,000 workout bonus and Boone failed to collect his $50,000 workout bonus.

Davis has two years remaining on a deal he signed in 2010 that pays him $42.55 million over six years. The final two years of his deal have his lowest payouts with base salaries of $5.3 million this season and $4.95 million in 2015.

Boone signed a contract extension while a backup offensive tackle in November 2011. His deal is scheduled to pay him $8.04 million over five seasons. He is scheduled to earn $2.25 million this season and $1.45 million next season as the team’s starting right guard.

Boone fired the agent who negotiated that deal, Adam Heller, and last year hired Jonathan Feinsod and Neil Schwartz, who have engaged in bitter contract disputes with teams while representing such clients as Vincent Jackson, Darrelle Revis and Roddy White.

Davis is still represented by agent Todd France, who negotiated his current contract.
