Lions waived/released QB James Franklin, FB Chad Abram, P Drew Butler, CB Jonte Green, CB Aaron Hester and K Giorgio Tavecchio.
A three-year starter in Missouri's explosive offense, Franklin threw for 51 touchdowns and ran for 21 in his college career. But he doesn't have an NFL arm and has been unwilling to switch positions. Tavecchio loses out to Nate Freese for the kicking gig. Aug 25 - 12:27 PM
