Franklin1

 

As minicamps and OTA’s begin, with it will come news of cuts of recognizable names. The Los Angeles Chargers continued their purge of veterans as they released guard Orlando Franklin on Monday. He becomes the third veteran cut from the team this offseason as starters D.J. Fluker and King Dunlap also received their pinkslips this offseason.

One of the lowest rated guards in the league according to Pro Football Focus, Franklin placed 66 out of 72 offensive guards for his performance least season. Lower body injuries and concussions plagued his stint with the Chargers. Franklin has only played two out of the five seasons on his contract.

The drafting of blue-chip OG’s Forrest Lamp and Dan Feeney made Franklin expendable and worth the cap hit for cutting Franklin so soon. The Chargers look to be all-in on revamping and solidifying their offensive line now.

Here’s hoping the shuffling finally turns up a full house.

 

Bolt Up!!
