Today the Detroit Lions signed Jerry Franklin a former undrafted free agent out of Arkansas, where he was a four-year starter, in 2012. The 28-year-old had stops in Denver, Carolina, Dallas, Chicago, Kansas City and New Orleans, before landing in Detroit today.
He appeared in 13 games for the Bears from 2012-13, and another seven with the Chiefs in 2014. He was with the Saints last year, but did not appear in a game.
Franklin, at 6-foot-1 and 245 pounds, has 12 career tackles.
