Niners Taking a Paitent Approach with NT Aubrayo Franklin

Comcast Bay Area reports that the 49ers will take a wait and see approach with NT Aubrayo Franklin:

49ers NT Aubrayo Franklin has a franchise tender of $7.003 million awaiting his signature. The team did not enter into serious negotiations on a long-term contract with Franklin this offseason. He turns 30 in August, so the team is understandably hesitant to award him a lucrative contract but then also failed to draft a nose tackle to begin developing to replace Franklin. Instead, they moved powerful lineman Ricky Jean-Francois to that spot during the offseason program. The 49ers will undoubtedly let this season play out before deciding their next course of action with Franklin.
