The Cleveland Browns elevated tight end Jordan Franks to the active roster on Saturday.

The move makes Franks eligible to be named to the game-day roster for Sunday’s home game against the Chicago Bears.

The 6-foot-4 and 246-pound Franks was an undrafted free agent out of Central Florida in 2018 who signed with the Cincinnati Bengals. He played in six games with the Bengals as a rookie, finishing with two catches for 37 yards.

He spent the 2019 season on Cincinnati’s practice squad, and then spent time in 2020 on the practice squad of the Philadelphia Eagles before the Browns signed him to their practice squad in mid-October.

Franks played in all three preseason games this summer with the Browns, finishing with nine receptions for 75 yards.

Once again this season teams are allowed to add up to two players from the practice each week to provide for a larger group to select the game-day roster. Players activated this way immediately return to the practice squad following the game.
