The deadline for NFL teams to sign franchise players to long-term extensions is Thursday.
According to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora, the 49ers have “no chance” of getting a deal done with nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin, who was given the one-year, $7.003 million designation this winter.
La Canfora says the Niners would like to extend Franklin’s contract eventually. They’ll just have to wait until after the season to do it.
Franklin skipped the entire offseason program, though head coach Mike Singletary indicated last month that Franklin’s absence was not unexpected.
Franklin’s plans for training camp remain unclear.
