Chargers Cut Starting Guard Franklin – Two weeks after selecting guard Forrest Lamp in the second round of the draft, the Los Angeles Chargers released starting guard Orlando Franklin, according to sources. The University of Miami product signed a five-year, $36.5 million deal in free agency two years ago, including over $20 million in guaranteed money. However, Franklin’s play was uneven during his time with the Chargers and he has struggled to stay on the field. Franklin is the third starting offensive lineman cut by the Chargers this offseason. The team previously released left tackle King Dunlap and right guard D.J. Fluker.
