Although I mooted the possibility of Aubrayo Franklin signing with Denver in the opening Four Downs this week, it was always a slim possibility that he'd be allowed to leave San Francisco. It appears that won't be the case, as Adam Schefter reports that Franklin will receive the franchise tag from the 49ers, giving him about $7 million.
