Swain was a teammate of WR Tyrie Cleveland during their college days in Florida. Swain last played with Denver Broncos in 2022, but his most productive stint came in Seattle, where he caught 38 passes for 502 yards and 6 TDs across two seasons.
The Eagles waived Cleveland with an injury designation after he suffered a concussion/neck injury last week against the Browns.
With Quez Watkins, Britain Covey, and Greg Ward all banged up, Philadelphia could be looking at extra pass-catchers to play in the preseason finale vs. Indianapolis.
The Eagles also worked out DB Bentlee Sanders, a 5-9 undrafted rookie out of Nevada. In his final college season, Sanders recorded 82 tackles (five for loss), five INTS, and four passes defended.
The Eagles have a need for nickel CB depth after losing Zech McPearson for the season to a torn Achilles. NFL rosters must be cut to 53 players by Aug. 29.
