Freddie Swain Has Solid First Outing With Philadelphia

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Freddie Swain caught 6-of-8 targets and gained 33 yards during the team's 27-13 preseason loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The 25-year-old tied for the team lead in receptions Thursday night with his top competition for a roster spot, Deon Cain. Cain, however, gained nearly double the yardage and looked more explosive. With Tyrie Cleveland waived due to injury, the final wide receiver spot for the Eagles is up for grabs, and it seems to be down to Swain and Cain after their performances Thursday. Cain may have the upper hand due to being on the roster for a more extended period of time, but Swain should revert to the practice squad if he does not make the final 53-man roster after cutdowns.
