JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed fourth-year TE Geoff Swaim as an unrestricted free agent, the club announced today.
“I’m really excited to come here to Jacksonville and have the opportunity to compete, play for this organization and really see what I can make of myself,” said Swaim shortly after signing Friday morning. “Evaluating my options in free agency, being able to play with Nick Foles and the kind of style that he plays was big for me in making my decision. Anytime you have the opportunity to compete, and you have that challenge in front of you, it makes you excited. I’m just ready to meet the guys, meet my coaches and get to work.”
Swaim, 6-4, 260, was originally drafted by Dallas in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft and has appeared in 37 games with 18 starts. He has recorded 35 career receptions for 336 yards and one TD in his NFL career, including a career high in receptions (26), receiving yards (242) and TDs (one) in 2018.
A native of Chico, Calif., Swaim attended Butte College for the first two years of his collegiate career prior to transferring to the University of Texas. While at Texas, Swaim played in 26 games (22 starts) and served mostly as a blocking tight end, earning honorable mention All-Big 12 honors as a junior.
