Franklin was waived in April of 2009 and spent parts of last season with the Detroit Lions and Oakland Raiders as a practice squad player.

The 6-foot, 210-pound Franklin played his college football at Missouri and caught 49 passes for 709 yards as a senior. Franklin scored four touchdowns while being named honourable mention All-Big 12.

Houston was a standout at Catawba College and was twice named a second-team all-star.

The 6-foot, 215-pounder spent 2007 with Berlin in NFL Europe.
