After announcing the end of his career on Thursday, the Packers have officially released running back Johnathan Franklin.
Packers General Manager, Ted Thompson said on the Packers website,
"It’s never easy releasing a player but 'it's especially difficult when a young man's opportunity is taken away from him because of an injury. Johnathan is a great person, a wonderful teammate, and a man that lives by his faith. The Packers are fortunate to have had the chance to work with him and we know that he will excel in whatever the future holds for him. He will always be a member of the Packers family.”
Franklin played in 11 games during his rookie season for the Packers.
