NFL Free Agency: 49ers Prepared To Lose NT Aubrayo Franklin

With the news that the Kansas City Chiefs have lost NT Ron Edwards to the Carolina Panthers in free agency we now have the biggest question mark on the roster.

What to do about nose tackle?

Every year in free agency, there's one player who Chiefs fans seem to get attached to and this year that player is San Francisco 49ers NT Aubrayo Franklin. He's 31 years old and could command a decent chunk of change on the open market after playing under the franchise tag in San Fran last year.

According to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, the 49ers are prepared to lose Franklin.

But lose him to which team?

That's the question right now. With the Edwards news, you gotta think he at least has the Chiefs attention. He also probably has the attention of a number of other teams which might make him expensive. GM Scott Pioli has said Clark Hunt has never said no to him in free agency so I'm now very curious to where Franklin stands on the wish list.

Tick-tock, tick-tock...
