Considering his production this season, Aubrayo Franklin will command high dollars at the end of this season when his current contract expires. His statistics are not jaw dropping but clearly he's a big part of defensive succes. QB pressures, that pivotal INT in the RED Zone, and his constant presence near the ball is obvious. Here's a couple of things to consider. A.) He's 29 and will probably want 4-5 yrs @ US$8.0Mil a year. B.) Finding a definitive 3-4 NT in the NFL is extremely difficult. C.) Terrance Cody/projected 3-4 NT Top 20 range. I know it's December.
