    Remember this move later in the summer. Welsh is someone we had mocked a few times and he could make the roster. Franklin being released is not a surprise.

    Welsh has a very good chance. He is listed at the team site as a center. Yes, he would be the backup center. He also has experience as a guard, but being listed as a center is very interesting. All part of a plan it seems.

    He's getting a lot of attention for an UDFA for sure. Sounds like some draft guys expected him to go as high as the 4th, so definitely a steal as an UDFA. Guess the knock on him is that he's a little undersized? Has played guard, tackle, and center - probably best fit to be a backup center and OL depth guy.

    One thing to watch - he has a serious depression history that he's very open about. On medications but he did take a season off in college to deal with it. Hopefully, he's got a lot of support to help him manage the stress of the next year or so.

    Orlando Franklin hasn’t done much in the league since going to a Super Bowl with Denver in 2013.

    He was always a space filler in my mind.

    Sounds like he's good enough to be swiped off the PS by another team, as that's been happening all too often lately.
    Just once I'd like it go the other way around, and have us find a gem on another team's PS.
    Seems like the only time I recall us doing that, was not out of diligent scouting, but only out of desperation, when we ran out of RB's and pulled Byron Marshall off of Philly's PS.

    Don't worry, Shaun Lauvao is back to take that roster spot.

    Jay's love child with an showgirl has returned.
