Jordan Franks News

Comes back to Cleveland

Franks was signed to the Browns' practice squad.

Analysis: Franks spent the summer in Ohio with the Browns and moved up the depth chart when Cleveland lost Stephen Carlson to a season-ending knee injury. Ultimately, Cleveland opted to keep three tights, which means Franks would be first in line if an injury crops up.

Dropped by Browns

Franks was cut by the Browns on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Franks has spent his first three seasons with the Browns. However, he has not suited up for a regular season game since his rookie year in 2018. It is unclear if he will again spend the season on their practice squad or ultimatley look for a new opportunity.

Staying in Cleveland

Franks signed a reserve/future deal with Cleveland on Monday.

Analysis: Franks is expected to be healthy as he will remain in Cleveland for the upcoming year. It will likely take a few injuries before the tight end becomes utilized in the Browns' offensive plans.

Dealing with injury

Franks (undisclosed) was placed on the practice squad injured list by the Browns on Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Analysis: The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but he'll start the path to recovery before trying to make an attempt at a 53-man roster spot around the league.

Inks deal with practice squad

The Browns signed Franks to the practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Franks was cut by the Eagle's practice squad a couple of weeks ago, and he'll get a fresh start in Cleveland. The Browns have four healthy tight ends on the active roster, so Franks will operate on the scout team and likely won't be activated unless an injury surfaces.

Cut from Philly's practice squad

Franks was released from the Eagles' practice squad Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: The Eagles have opted to replace Franks with a slightly more experienced tight end option in Jason Croom, whom they added to the practice squad in a corresponding move. This decision comes on the heels of an ankle injury to tight end Dallas Goedert, so it says something about the current stage of Franks' development that the team opted to replace him rather than give him a chance to seize the opening created by Goedert's injury.

Secures practice squad role

Franks signed with the Eagles' practice squad Tuesday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Franks spent training camp with the Bengals but couldn't make the cut. The Eagles are carrying three tight ends on the active roster, so Franks likely won't receive a promotion barring an injury to Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert or Richard Rodgers.

Let go by Bengals

Franks was waived by Cincinnati on Saturday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Franks was elevated to the 53-man roster from the practice squad for the final game of the regular season in 2019, but he failed to see the field. He'll likely look for a depth role or practice squad spot elsewhere around the league, as the Bengals will roll with C.J. Uzomah, Drew Sample and Cethan Carter at tight end to start 2020.

Rejoins 53-man roster

Franks was promoted to the Bengals' 53-man roster Friday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Franks spent the preseason with the Bengals but suffered a concussion and was let go before ending up on the practice squad. The 23-year-old should fill a depth role at tight end for Cincinnati.

Retakes field

Franks (concussion) notched one catch for one yard during Thursday's preseason loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Franks suffered a concussion during last Saturday's preseason tilt against the Chiefs, and has managed to clear the league-mandated protocol. He'll now resume competing for a depth role.

Managing concussion

Franks did not practice Monday due to a concussion, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Franks reportedly suffered the head injury during Saturday's preseason tilt against the Chiefs. The second-year pro is competing for a depth role with the Bengals, and will look to get healthy and return to practice as soon as possible.
