The Jacksonville Jaguars will be signing former Dallas Cowboys tight end Geoff Swaim, according to Mark Long of the Associated Press. The Jaguars now have three tight ends on the roster and will be expected to add more either through free agency or the 2019 NFL Draft.
Swaim was originally a seventh round pick out of Texas by the Cowboys in the 2015 NFL Draft and was viewed mostly as a special teams player and a blocking tight end. Swaim forced his way on to the active roster in 2015 as a rookie, though didn’t play much.
Swaim worked his way up the Cowboys depth chart and eventually was the starting tight end once Jason Witten retired prior to the 2018 season. He started nine games before hitting injured reserve with a wrist injury. He ended the season with 26 receptions, 242 yards and a touchdown, though was mostly used as a blocker.
