According to Green Bay Press-Gazette sports writer PeteDougherty in today's paper) Sat. April 27th) "Tight end Bubba Franks will not attend Mini Camp this week. because he is not obligated to because he is not under contract The packers have desgnated him a transition player but he has not signed the contract tender, and is looking for a long term deal either from ther Packers or another team. Other NFL teams haveuntil July 22 t o sign Franks to an offer sheet, and the Packers have the right to match the deal. They receive no compenstation if they don't. He's had no contract offers from another club thus far, so it's unlikely that an offer wiill be forthcoming for the rest of the season.. (Gene) Mato (Franks' agent) suggested that Franks might sit out rather than play for the one year transition tender of $2.095 million. "It's doubtful (he'd play for the tender) but you never Know." Mato Said." unquote------I don't don't think Franks will sit out the season. He will take the $2 mil offer, but you really never know.
