Packers Rookie RB Johnathan Franklin Ineligible For OTAs
Rookie draft choices and free agent signees are not allowed to take part in OTAs until after their final exams are finished, and this appears to affect one Packer in particular.
That rookie is running back Johnathan Franklin, whose finals at UCLA last until June 14th. According to the rules Franklin can participate in the rookie minicamp and the Packers' mandatory three-day minicamp from June 4-6, but he may not join the team for any other activities (namely, OTAs) until his final exams are complete.
Seifert notes that the Packers' first-round pick, defensive end Datone Jones, has already graduated from UCLA and is not subject to these limitations.
