Eagles Worked Out Two Players Including FB Chris Swain

According to Adam Caplan, the Eagles brought in FB Chris Swain and WR Kenny Lawler for workouts on Tuesday.

Lawler, 22, was a seventh-round pick by the Seahawks in the 2016 NFL Draft. Seattle decided to waive him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit but signed him to their practice squad after clearing waivers.

The Seahawks, unfortunately, cut Lawler from their practice squad last week. This is the first team to show interest in him since becoming a free agent.

He also worked out for the Chiefs this week but has yet to be signed to a contract.

During his three years at California, Lawler recorded 143 receptions for 1,706 yards receiving and 27 touchdowns.

Swain, 23, originally signed on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Navy. San Diego elected to make him one of their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

Since becoming a free agent, Swain has worked out for the Chiefs and Titans but was not signed to a contract.

During his four-year college career, he recorded 2,290 rushing yards on 437 attempts with 19 rushing touchdowns. He also had two receptions for 24 yards receiving and one touchdown.
