I heard today that the Chiefs are going to go after the NT from SF. Franklin I think is his name? He is a FA that will command top $ from what I heard but we have money to spare.

Could this be why the late pick for a NT?

Any of you insiders know anything about this?

Where did you hear this?

I'd be very leery of him. He produced when he was playing for a payday.

My Dad was telling me about it. He gets a lot of his info from his west coast friends and I guess he said that was the chatter he was hearing.

No official source. Just a family member on the left side of the country.

this guy had a couple good years for the 49ers but then again playing with Patrick Willis can make anyone look good.

His age and wear and tear caught up to him last season, I don't think there's a difference between him and Ron Edwards at this point.

Think this would be a terrific pick-up. Give him a short-term contract, take your time developing Powe. Regardless of whether he's a contract player or not, he was terrific in 2009 and can't be any worse than what we have.

Didn't the 49ers put the franchise tag on him? Not sure how that'll play out with the ongoing labor dispute.

Is the family member a real estate agent or a flight traffic controller?

I'd rather trade for Sammie Lee Hill.

The origin of this "rumor" is an article suggesting the idea from Arrowheadpride.com

It's just a guess from a guy with no real source or evidence.
