I can't say I really blame him. He'll get paid anyhow as long as he shows up later. Although, if his play is affected because he didn't train well enough while away from camp then he deserves to DIE!

A little harsh aren't we. Fired from his job, fined maybe, but die. Chill bro, its only a game. Go out and smell the roses.

Honestly, I didn't mean that literally. On a serious note, I'm just glad he'll be back on board with no injuries and hopefully, he stays that way for the remainder of the season.
I wonder if Franklin saw what RJF has done so far and thought it best to get his ass to camp. Maybe it's just me, but I thought the d-line looked more explosive with RJF at nose. If that is the case, does he get the nod at starting over Franklin?

I can! Dude is in a contract year (his first and probably last/only chance at a big NFL contract) and he's showing he's not a team player IMO. Once the date passed that the team could not give him a multi-year deal he should have signed his tender and got into camp. The ONLY reason not to at that point is a selfish reason.

True that...

On the bright side, he's coming back with no injuries. I just hope he didn't lose a step... the rotation with him and RJF will wreak havoc on offenses.

If he plays better than Franklin, he'll get the nod, imo. Nonetheless, when one takes a breather and the other comes off the bench, o-lines will get tired of that sickness.

having a nice rotation with the D-Line always helps.
I'm not a GM but I play one on the PC lol. It might seem harsh but here's what I think the 9ers will or should do with AF.

Franchise him again next year, then let him walk in '12 and hand over the starting job to RJF who should be close to fully developed by then. You'll be replacing a 32 year old NT with a 25 year old one who is bigger, stronger, quicker, more mobile, and cheaper.

Or just let AF walk next year and hand it over to RJF. You can tell the 9ers don't really wanna commit to long term relationship with AF anyway, they would have re'upped him like they did other key members. Think about it, they are always calling him the key to the D but yet the didn't do a long term deal with him when his contract is up?

This is the NFL, you gotta be shrewd.......

As many have said before, why dump that much money in a 30 year old DT that has never made a pro bowl/all pro? He's a damn good player, but not great. Not deserving of the kind of money he wants, IMO.

What a waste. And I don't know who's dumber here-- His agent for suggesting he hold out, or him actually agreeing to do it. Dude, show and prove and YOU WILL GET YOUR MONEY. The Niners actually have an OUTSTANDING record when it comes to awarding and retaining their own free agents.

No reason why Franklin would be an exception here. He has to know they want to keep him (as evidenced by Patrick Willis publicly campaigning for him), they just (like any other team would) want to make sure that last year wasn't a fluke, and that he won't go all Albert Haynesworth once gets his money.

And what's the worst case scenario here? The Niners don't retain him and he signs for big bucks elsewhere. EITHER WAY, HE GETS PAID.

Franklin could learn a lot from how VD handled his contract status. He didn't make it an issue. AT ALL. He simply said "I'm sure something will get done," and then he went on his way. He still showed up to practice, and participated in all the other team activities as well. No fuss.

We need more of that in the league.

I agree with you on some levels but you have to realize the NFL definitely stands for not for long and at any moment you can get injured and ruin your career. NFL players and their agents are not stupid .. why risk training camp and end up like Heitmann in your contract year .. its all about guaranteed dollars and security. The 49ers have something to do with this also they couldve resigned the man if they wanted him that badly. Aubrayo has done no wrong in my eyes so long as he comes in top condition. $7 million is alot of money so we all knew he would eventually sign. No biggie. The plus is that RJF appears ready to ball if Franklin leaves next year.

Exactly, without his financial future secured with a long term contract he needed to minimize the risk of a training camp injury. If he suffered a season ending or even just a season shortening injury his opportunity for what will probably the last significant contract of his career would be severely damaged. I don't blame him at all. And as we all know, since he's not officially under contract he's not hold out.

I think he'll show up in good physical shape and be ready for another contract year.
