Colts agreed to terms with NT Aubrayo Franklin, formerly of the Chargers.
The Colts' spending spree continues unabated. Indianapolis will be Franklin's fourth team in as many seasons. Franklin appeared in 12 games, starting nine, last year before landing on injured reserve with a knee injury. A pure run stopper, he played just 285 snaps. That will be Franklin's role for the Colts, who are looking to improve a run defense that allowed 5.1 yards per carry in 2012. Tue, Mar 19, 2013 04:43:00 PM

The Chargers are interested in re-signing free agent NT Aubrayo Franklin.

Franklin played in 12 games for the Chargers last season, starting nine and registering 20 tackles. He was placed on injured reserve in Week 16 with a minor knee injury. Franklin can likely be had on another cheap one-year deal.

Chargers placed NT Aubrayo Franklin (knee) and S Brandon Taylor on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

The Bolts could be nearing a record for IRed players. DBs Sean Cattouse and Greg Gatson were promoted from the practice squad in corresponding roster moves. Signed on the eve of training camp, Franklin appeared in 12 games, starting nine. The 32-year-old run stuffer graded out positively in Pro Football Focus' ratings. Provided he's healthy, Franklin shouldn't hurt for one-year offers this offseason.

Chargers NT Aubrayo Franklin will "probably be out for a couple weeks" with a bone bruise in his knee.

Franklin was originally believed to have a foot injury. It's a big blow for the reeling Chargers, and should significantly weaken their No. 2 run defense. Playing under a one-year, $890,000 contract, Franklin has graded out as Pro Football Focus' 16th best defensive tackle with 10 weeks in the books.

Chargers NT Aubrayo Franklin left Sunday's Week 10 game against the Bucs with a foot injury and will not return.

Franklin is the anchor of the Chargers' 3-4 and their run-stuffer. Doug Martin is in the midst of another big game.
Sun, Nov 11, 2012 02:39:00 PM

Chargers signed NT Aubrayo Franklin to a one-year contract.

Franklin, who turns 32 next month, flopped miserably in New Orleans' 4-3 scheme last year, but has always been better cut out to play nose tackle in a 3-4 like the Chargers'. San Diego fielded one of the softer front sevens in football a year ago, and the 320-pound Franklin adds another mammoth body behind Antonio Garay and Cam Thomas. If Franklin is in shape and motivated, he could push for a starting job.

The Falcons hosted free agent DT Aubrayo Franklin on Monday.

Franklin, who turns 32 before the season, is a rotational, early-down run defender at this stage of his career. He'd compete for a backup job in Atlanta.
Mon, Apr 23, 2012 02:50:00 PM

Free agent NT Aubrayo Franklin visited the Seahawks on Tuesday.

The 49ers' franchise player in 2010, Franklin's play has declined in each of the past two seasons. Signing Franklin as a situational run-stuffer could allow the Seahawks to go linebacker or defensive line early in the draft.
Tue, Apr 10, 2012 06:13:00 PM

The Chiefs have shown interest in free agent NT Aubrayo Franklin.

The Chiefs are looking to shore up the league's 26th ranked run defense, and Franklin would presumably come cheap after playing just 296 snaps for the Saints last season. Five months shy of his 32nd birthday, Franklin hasn't lined up any visits since the start of free agency.

Saints NT Aubrayo Franklin (knee) and DE Cameron Jordan (knee) are expected to play against the Packers Thursday night.

Franklin's return is bad news for the Packers' ground attack. The Saints defensive ends are in question, though, with Jordan and Turk McBride replacing Alex Brown and Will Smith (suspension).
Sun, Sep 4, 2011 08:51:00 PM

Saints NT Aubrayo Franklin suffered a sprained left MCL in Saturday's preseason loss to the Texans.

Franklin will all but certainly miss the remainder of the preseason and his status for Week 1 is in doubt. The good news is that Franklin -- Pro Football Focus' No. 2 run-stopping interior lineman in 2010 -- didn't suffer a serious injury. Still, this makes it more likely that he'll be a backup early in the year.

Saints signed NT Aubrayo Franklin to a one-year contract.

The rich get richer. Franklin's market was slow to develop for unknown reasons, but the 31-year-old adds a dominant early-down presence to a suddenly loaded New Orleans front seven. Pro Football Focus graded Franklin as the No. 2 run-stopping interior lineman in football last season, and he was the anchor for a 49ers defense that allowed the fewest yards per carry (3.46) in the NFC. We're red-flagging the Saints' defense for fantasy running back matchups.
Tue, Aug 2, 2011 04:55:00 PM

Free agent NT Aubrayo Franklin will "visit" with 49ers coaches Monday.

Franklin has played for the Niners for four years, but he may want to get a better read on the new coaching staff. The best nose tackle on the market has surprisingly received little known interest, so a reunion with San Fran is now possible.
Sun, Jul 31, 2011 03:07:00 PM

The 49ers have no plans to re-sign NT Aubrayo Franklin or OLB Manny Lawson.

Both have been greeted by seemingly soft markets, but it doesn't appear the 49ers are going to swoop in and try to re-sign either to bargain-basement deals. Franklin should still be in line for a nice payday.
Sun, Jul 31, 2011 10:10:00 AM

Free agent NT Aubrayo Franklin has reportedly "not been a focal point" of the Redskins' plans this offseason, contrary to speculation.

If the Redskins up with the Jenkins Brothers, as expected, then Kris would take over as the nose tackle on early downs. He figures to come far more cheaply than Franklin, the top nose tackle on the market. If the Redskins aren't involved in the bidding, Franklin's contract may take a big hit. The Chiefs and perhaps the Texans could be his top suitors.
