I think that would be a bad move to give him that kind of loot. PWillis would want upwards of $10-$12mill a year if you give AF that kind of contract franchised or not!
What other NT could we get for $5-$7million a year?
You must understand the process of the Franchise tag! Nearly no player is worth the Franchise tag, but teams issue it to insure that the protect their rights from losing the player for nothing. So basically they tag Franklin so nobody else gets a shot at him and the disadvantage of that is the high price tag...with the reward being of keeping him on ur squad.
Just so u know..Julius Peppers made 16 million last year. No football player is worth that money, but Carolina did it just so they didnt lose him! So its not technically about the money, its about keeping the player on ur team if u cant workout a contract extension.
