Is OL Orlando Franklin related to the WR Clifford Franklin?

The info I think is missing from that article is why the Chargers released him? Injury? Cap savings? Poor play?

Franklin has experience at right tackle and left guard, but at this point, anyone with experience can help Saints in practice.

He missed 5 games in 2015 and 1 in 2013. 29 years old so should still have something to give. Not sure how many sacks allowed.
