Franklin agrees to terms with Saints

Former 49ers DT Aubrayo Franklin has agreed to terms with the Saints, according to a league source.

It was generally assumed that Franklin would move on — he played last season in San Francisco on a franchise tag and couldn’t come to terms with the 49ers on a long-term deal. But Franklin met with new coach Jim Harbaugh and his staff this week, providing hope for the sides to work out an agreement.

Franklin has been a regular starter for the 49ers since 2007, serving as a 320-pound run-stuffer.
