In another move that would have to rank as a surprise, the Chiefs released WR Will Franklin. He becomes the second member of the Chiefs 2008 class of 12 draft picks to be released. Franklin was a fourth-round selection, the 105th player selected overall in the 08 Draft out of Missouri. He appeared in 13 games last year, starting against San Diego in Arrowhead Stadium when the team opened with three wide receivers.


I'm so beyond pissed about this. As the article says, he was a 4th round pick just last year, and did nothing that would put him on the chopping block. Makes no sense whatsoever.

I wanted the Cowboys to draft him last year and wouldn't complain if we picked him up.

I guess he didnt fit what Haley wants to do? He has talent. I wouldnt mind the Raiders looking into getting him.

Not too long ago, a Chiefs fan said this guy was better than Brandon Stokley when we were comparing Broncos WRs. At least Stokes has a job.

He ran poor routes, couldn't get open, and dropped some balls, and his speed wasn't all that impressive. I mean Webb was actually more impressive than Franklin last season. That is enough in my opinion to say Franklin sucks.
