Franklin was released by the Redskins on Thursday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.
Franklin had a brief stint with the Redskins in 2017, appearing in one game, and was signed by the team after the season. The veteran lineman will be looking to catch on with another team in 2018, likely as a backup option.
Franklin was released by the Redskins on Friday, Brian McNally of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.
Franklin was signed by Washington less than a week ago as they dealt with numerous injuries on their offensive line, but they found themselves with 12 healthy linemen prior to cutting the veteran guard. The 29-year-old will now wait for another opportunity to latch onto an NFL roster.
Franklin spent less than a week with the Saints in training camp, but has surprisingly been a free agent since being released by the Chargers in May. The Redskins have six offensive linemen on their injury report this week, which could press the 29-year-old into a significant role early on with his new team.
