  • Franklin to LG confirmed

    According to his Twitter:
    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Left guard, excited to learn and improve this offseason. I will give it my all</p>&mdash; Orlando Franklin (@OFranklin74) <a href="https://twitter.com/OFranklin74/statuses/458339718057316352">April 21, 2014</a></blockquote>

    What are your guys' thoughts on this move? I think it's a good idea. The left side of the line will be awesome with him and Clady, and it will give Clark and a new prospect an opportunity at RT.

    Think it makes all the sense in the world. Also probably means he'll be leaving after this season to chase the money at RT. Chris Clark should do fine at RT.

      I get the feeling we will be drafting two new starters after next season.

        I agree. I think that Clark is a more natural tackle who can handle the speed guys that come off the edge in today's NFL. I was always hesitant to move Franklin inside because of the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality. But it clearly broke in the Super Bowl, and it's time to try the next.

        I think Franklin will be great inside, and with Clark and Clady on the edges, we'll have an upgraded OL. We need a Center though. I cant stand to see Manny as a starter on a real contender.
