DT Aubrayo Franklin has missed all of the 49ers training camp after being franchised by San Francisco, but will reportedly, um, report to the Niners.
That's according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, who says that Franklin will fly to San Francisco to take his physical and sign the $7.003 million tender on Saturday.
Franklin recorded 36 tackles, two sacks and a pick in 2009 -- coupled with his 46 tackle, single sack and two-forced fumble season in 2008 made him a highly-coveted free agent before the Niners franchised him.
It was pretty much assumed , by even Mike Singletary, that Franklin would end up reporting and signing his tender before the season started. Now it appears he will.
