A native of Oklahoma City, Franklin won the 103rd Grey Cup in 2015 as a member of Edmonton.
Franklin never actually suited up for the Riders. He signed with the team ahead of the cancelled 2020 season and re-signed with the team in January.
A product of Mizzou, Franklin spent five seasons in the league with Edmonton and the Toronto Argonauts.
He finishes his career with 4,305 yards on 378-for-573 passing with 23 touchdowns and 16 interceptions over 79 games played (15 starts). He added another 593 yards on the ground with 17 TDs.
