Packers RB Franklin done with school, cleared to practice
MAY 10, 2013 4:11p ET
"I graduated last June (2012)," Franklin said in the locker room after reporting for rookie minicamp. "I think it was just a miscommunication."
Multiple reports earlier in the week stated that Franklin was ineligible to participate in OTAs due to the NFL's rule about final exams for rookies still enrolled in college.
"I'm done with school," Franklin said, who graduated with a degree in political science. "I had my degree already. I brought all my clothes (to Green Bay) so I better be here for good."
A source also confirmed that Franklin is eligible for OTAs and that all reports to the contrary are incorrect.
