Orlando Franklin Signs With Chargers Because of His Better Half

Orlando Franklin met with the San Diego media on Wednesday and talked about why he decided to join the Chargers, even though another team offered more money.

One was head coach Mike McCoy, Franklin's offensive coordinator for two years in Denver.

Another was the positive direction he sees the Chargers pointed in and a chance to work with quarterback Philip Rivers.

Yet another was the chance to play with Brandon Flowers, who went to the same high school as Franklin (Atlantic Community HS in Delray Beach, FL) and was lobbying for Orlando to join the Bolts.

But the most important sales pitch came from someone with no NFL experience. Watch the video to see who Chargers fans really have to thank for landing one of the biggest (literally and figuratively) fish in this year's free agent pool.
