Cant we just franchise him if no deal is struck? Doesn't seem like we are in danger of losing him.

Actually the problem isnt that Freeman stinks. He is average. He puts up good numbers just often enough to make you think he is better than he is. Bad and great are convincing. But mediocre makes you live with the delusion for too many years. He is just good enough to waste our time and not good enough to get us where we want to go.
Lastly, if he was franchised, he most likely wouldn't get that money. They would probably come to an agreement on a long term deal that paid him more appropriately.
Franchising him is not an option. The amount he would get in '13 would be about triple the salary he is probably worth.
