ALLEN PARK, Michigan — The Detroit Lions have signed linebacker Jerry Franklin.

Franklin adds depth for Detroit and has a shot to play in an NFL game for the first time since 2014.

He played in seven games with the Kansas City Chiefs two years ago. He was in 10 games with Chicago in 2013, a year after making his NFL debut and appearing in three games with the Bears.

Franklin was among the final cuts made by the New Orleans Saints, entering last season. He has also been on practice squads with the Denver Broncos and Dallas Cowboys.

Terms were not disclosed in Thursday's announcement.
