Franklin's absence at 49ers camp looms large

Posted on: July 31, 2010 10:09 pm
NT Aubrayo Franklin didn’t report with his 49ers teammates today, and it seems like a pretty good bet he won’t be around when San Francisco officially opens training camp with its first practice Sunday afternoon.

The unsigned Franklin apparently didn’t like the one-year, $7 million tender the 49ers offered, and coach Mike Singletary hasn’t talked to him all offseason. So, what happens now?

Though 49ers observers seem to think a deal will get done in the preseason, it’s hard to tell when he’ll report.

"There's no mistaking about it: Aubrayo is one of a kind," linebacker Patrick Willis told the Press Democrat . "I love playing with Aubrayo. At the same time, I know this is a business and, at the end of the day, we have to work with who we have here. I know everything is going to work itself out and that's out of my control. If I could snap my fingers, and make him be here, I would. But I can't."
