Johnathan Franklin's Career is Over

This isn't a hugely important player loss, but it is a sad one. While Eddie Lacy is on the precipice of stardom, the other running back Green Bay drafted last year, Johnathan Franklin, will probably never play again due to a neck injury sustained during a kickoff last year in Week 12. The Packers will be giving him a waived/injured designation, and in a tweet today Franklin indicated that he needs to move to the next phase of his life. I hope he invested his rookie salary well.

Pretty sad as far as his career. Some people projected him to be better than Lacey. He's a smart guy and played his "senior season" as a grad student. One of his life's goals is to be mayor of LA. Maybe he can bring them a football team.

At a price that makes sense?

Attractive sad as distant as his vocation. A number of populace predictable him to be better than Lacey. He's a elegant gentleman and play his "senior period" as a grad scholar. http://www.yourbestwriters.com/pay-to-write-college-paper
