I didn't even LIKE the guy last year. The safeties behind him are far worse, I'll give you that, but thats a reason to get better backup safeties, not to franchise a guy who doesn't deserve the designation.
My hope is that the Niners won't user the tag at all and can resign the guys they need to resign. None of the guys tho who are on one year deals are worth a franchise tag.
I'd also resign a corner over a safety any day of the week.
...and none of this even speaks to the fact that he was missing tackles all over the place last night. I'm onboard with resigning him, but franchise tag!?! No way.
