Is there any chance he gets hit with the franchise tag?

I'm no expert, but I doubt it. I think he's looking for a big pay raise ALA Dashon.

Whitner may have earned a big payday, and I do think, he has, but his desire does not eliminate the use of the franchise tag.

Conversely, a desire for a big payday could result in the team using the franchise tag to keep him.

I hope Hitner and FO can come to an agreement. And we need to find his future replacement (in draft)...
Meanwhile Dixon pretty much keeps tweeting his goodbye but no one seems to care lol

Dude should get some respect from the fan base. I mean he loves playin' for us and did his best.

I don't mind having him back, he's been great to / for the 49ers.

But ultimately, finding Whitners replacement (compared to) Dixon's (maybe) departure seems more hard pressed

Donte, "I'll stay AND take a pay cut on one condition... Roman / Chrsyt leave or they get their (red zone scoring / play-calling crap) together"
Damn hopefully this doesn't mean Whitner is gone. Gonna be risky having to draft his replacement but in HarBaalke we trust

Reid looked great as a rookie. we have drafted and developed DBs very well so i dont think it would be a stretch to throw a rook in there with Reid and watch em fly around crushing people and making plays

I don't know exactly what year, but I'm pretty sure the Niners did that (rookies in backfield) and still went on to win in the SB....
