The deal is estimated to be worth around $3.3 million per year, which is what Franson made last season.
In 23 games with Nashville, Franson had just four points, a contrast to his 32 points in 55 games with the Maple Leafs before the trade. He has had 35 goals, 134 assists and 169 points over the course of his career.
Franson, 28, played on one-year deals for the past three seasons. He was one of the top unrestricted free agents this off-season.
