Bears sign Jerry Franklin off practice squad

IRVING, Texas – The Cowboys lost a second player from their practice squad in as many weeks to another team when Chicago signed linebacker Jerry Franklin.

Last week Oakland added running back Jamize Olawale.

Franklin joined the Cowboys practice squad on Nov. 14. He went to training camp with Denver and was on Carolina’s practice squad before coming to Dallas.

With the death of Jerry Brown, the call up of Robert Callaway and the departures of Olawale and Franklin, the Cowboys have only four players on the practice squad: Tim Benford, Andre Holmes, Reggie Jones and Ronald Leary.
