Former Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim signs with Jacksonville Jaguars

Following the most prolific season of his Dallas Cowboys career, tight end Geoff Swaim is signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Swaim was the 246th pick in the 2015 NFL draft by Dallas.

In four years with the Cowboys, he appeared in 37 games tallying 35 receptions, 336 yards and one touchdown. His best statistical season came last year when he played and started nine games. He finished with 26 receptions for 242 yards and a touchdown before fracturing a bone in his wrist in the team's 22-19 win over Atlanta on Nov. 18.

At the beginning of the offseason, SportsDay's Kate Hairopoulos identified five Cowboys free agents who were least likely to return to Dallas. Swaim was one of them.

"The Cowboys got a lot out of the former seventh-round pick from Texas," Hairopoulos said. "But he has been unable to remain healthy during his four seasons in Dallas. Plus, the Cowboys are pleased with the development of tight ends Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz, who came on after Swaim suffered the injury. They could also look to upgrade at the position in this year's coming draft, including a tight end who can become a reliable red-zone option."
