NT Aubrayo Franklin Officially Signs 49ers Franchise Tender

Thanks to mikeinsp for getting a FanShot up about this but I wanted to make sure we got some front page coverage as well. The 49ers announced that Aubrayo Franklin arrived in town and signed his franchise tender contract offer. The team will make him available to the media at 3:45pm today over at the Oakland Coliseum.

At this point I'd be pretty surprised if he was playing in tonight's game. If that's the case, Ricky Jean Francois will get one last game of first team snaps at nose tackle. Starting next week, I'd suspect Franklin moves back into the starting lineup and RJF goes second team at nose tackle, with some snaps at defensive end as well.
