Franklin debuted for the Denver Broncos in 2011, moved to the San Diego Chargers for two seasons in 2015 then finished his career at Washington in 2017.
Since quitting football, the 32-year-old has shed more than 38kg, and has promised to upload full-body before-and-after shots if he cracks the 40kg mark.

Franklin tipped the scales at 142kg during his playing days but is far more lean and mean in 2020.
Franklin’s transformation is similar to that of Joe Thomas, the former Cleveland Browns offensive tackle, who went from big bopper to svelte hunk after retiring in 2018.
