Joe Staley's 2014 contract breakdown: $2.7 million salary, $31,250 per game roster bonus, $200,000 workout bonus. Total: $3.4 million (AP)

Guard Alex Boone did not attend the first day of the 49ers’ voluntary organized team activities Tuesday, as he seeks a new contract this offseason, a source confirmed to CSNBayArea.com.

Boone, a four-year veteran, has two years remaining on an extension he signed toward the end of his second NFL season after the 49ers acquired him as an undrafted rookie in 2010.

Boone is part of a powerful nucleus on the 49ers’ offensive line that comes in well under the 2014 franchise number for offensive linemen of $11.654 million.

Left guard Mike Iupati enters the final year of his contract, and is expected to command a big-money contract – either from the 49ers or some other team.
