Former Packers running back Johnathan Franklin went unclaimed on waivers on Monday, according to the NFL’s transaction wire.
The Packers waived Franklin with a “failed physical” designation Friday. Franklin suffered a neck injury in a November game vs. Minnesota, an injury that will keep him off the field in 2014 and perhaps for good, the running back indicated last week.
With the Packers waiving Franklin outright, the former UCLA star is free to sign elsewhere were he to resume his NFL career.
The 24-year-old Franklin was a fourth-round selection of Green Bay in the 2013 draft. He appeared in 11 regular season games for the Packers, rushing 19 times for 107 yards and a TD and catching four passes for 30 yards.
