49ers DT Aubrayo Franklin To Report To San Francisco; Sign Franchise Contract

San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Aubrayo Franklin hasn't been with the team at all this fall, but that soon will change.

Franklin is expected to fly to San Francisco on Saturday to undergo his physical and sign his $7.003 million contract according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The 29-year-old Franklin has recorded 291 tackles, four sacks, one interception and three forced fumbles in his seven-year career. Franklin entered the league as a fifth-round pick by Baltimore in 2003, but came to the Bay as a free agent before the 2007 season.

Since the 49ers tagged Franklin as a franchise player, his salary was determined as either the average of the top five salaried players at his position or at a salary at least 120% of his previous year's salary, whichever of the two is the higher amount.
