Swoopes will provide additional competition for the third tight end spot behind Philadelphia’s entrenched duo of Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert

Swoopes, 25, signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Texas back in May of 2017. He converted to play tight end in the NFL after appearing as a quarterback during his college career.

He has bounced on and off Seattle’s practice squad since joining the league with a few stints on the active roster. 

In 2019, Swoopes appeared in five games for the Seahawks and caught one pass for five yards.

During his four-year college career as a quarterback for Texas, Swoopes recorded 281 completions on 499 attempts (56.3 percent) for 3,038 passing yards, 17 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions.
