Stays with Tennessee

Swaim is staying with the Titans on a one-year contract, John Glennon of reports.

Analysis: The new league year hasn't even started and the Titans have already lost TE Jonnu Smith and WRs Corey Davis and Adam Humphries. Retaining Swaim won't change much for the passing offense, but it does give the team a competent blocker alongside passing-down specialist Anthony Firkser. The 27-year-old Swaim has 57 catches in 53 NFL appearances, including just nine in 10 games for the Titans last season.

Finds role with Titans

Swaim recorded nine receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown across nine games with the Titans in 2020.

Analysis: Swaim signed with the Titans in mid-August, though he wasn't active on gameday until Week 6. He played a relatively large role thereafter, logging over a 50 percent snap rate in six of his nine contests. That didn't translate to much production in the box score, though he did serve as a solid run-blocker to clear the way for Derrick Henry. Swaim will hit unrestricted free agency at the conclusion of the Titans' postseason run.

Returns to full practice

Swaim (ankle) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Swaim missed last week's game with an ankle injury, but he appears to have regained health ahead of Sunday's prime time trip to Green Bay. The backup tight end turned in his best performance of the season with 34 yards and a touchdown last time he took the field, and he'll look to build on that effort in what's expected to be a high-scoring affair against the Packers.

Out for divisional tilt

Swaim (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Lions.

Analysis: Swain is coming off his best game of the year, as he posted a 3-34-1 line over 32 snaps against the Jaguars in Week 14. However, the sixth-year tight end couldn't shake the ankle injury he suffered in the process. In turn, Anthony Firkser and MyCole Pruitt should both see additional playing time behind Jonnu Smith.

Dec 20, 2020 8:56 AM EST

Listed as questionable

Swaim (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Terry McCormick of reports.

Analysis: Swaim had his best game of the season against Jacksonville last weekend, with three catches for 34 yards and a score, but he may not be available against Detroit on Sunday. With Jonnu Smith fully healthy, of course, Swaim will only be in line for No. 2 duties if active.

Doesn't practice after big game

Swaim (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Turron Davenport of reports.

Analysis: Swaim scored his first touchdown of the season and the second of his six-year career in last week's win over Jacksonville, but it's possible the tight end also picked up an ankle injury later in the contest. He'll hope to raise his practice participation level as the week unfolds ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Lions.

Hauls in touchdown

Swaim recorded three receptions on three targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Jaguars.

Analysis: Swaim was the most involved Titans' tight end in terms of targets and yardage, though he was out-snapped by both MyCole Pruitt and Jonnu Smith. His biggest contribution came on a five-yard touchdown catch early in the third quarter. This was Swaim's most productive performance of the season, making it difficult to trust him moving forward to any matchups to close the season.

Dec 14, 2020 7:46 AM EST

Records three catches

Swaim converted all three of his targets into receptions for 30 yards in Week 12.

Analysis: Swaim was the Titans most productive tight end and was on the field for a season-high 64 percent of offensive snaps. He served as a blocker for the majority of his time on the field however, as the Titans attempted only seven passes in the second half. Swaim has increasingly gained a role in the offense of late, though that has resulted in only four receptions for 39 yards across three contests.

Nov 30, 2020 2:06 PM EST

Catches lone target

Swaim caught his only target for nine yards during Sunday's win over the Ravens.

Analysis: The 27-year-old played 63 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday but was minimally involved in the passing game. Swaim has been seeing more playing time than Anthony Firkser but Firkser is garnering significantly more looks behind No. 1 tight end Jonnu Smith.

Nov 24, 2020 5:58 PM EST

Sees increase in role

Swaim recorded two receptions on three targets for 10 yards in Week 6 against the Texans.

Analysis: Swaim saw an increased role with the early exit of Jonnu Smith (ankle). He was on the field for 49 offensive snaps, good for a 65 percent rate of the team's offensive plays. With MyCole Pruitt (COVID-19) currently unable to suit up, Swaim could be the Titans second tight end if Smith's ankle prevents him from returning to action for a Week 7 matchup against the Steelers.

Oct 19, 2020 7:57 AM EST

Inactive for Week 1

Swaim (coach's decision) is not active for the team's Week 1 contest against the Broncos, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Swaim signed with Tennessee partway through training camp and made the roster as depth among their tight end corps. However, he'll be inactive for the team's opening contest of the season.

Sep 14, 2020 6:26 PM EST

Earns contract Wednesday

Swaim signed a contract with the Titans on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: The 27-year-old was let go by the Jaguars this offseason, and after numerous tryouts around the league, he settled one a contract in Tennessee. Swaim only suited up in six games last season with Jacksonville, chipping in 13 catches for 65 yards, so he'll likely add a nice depth piece to the tight end room should injuries or illness occur during the season.

Aug 19, 2020 4:12 PM EST

Will tryout with Texans

Swaim (concussion/ankle) is set to have a tryout/physical with the Texans on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Swaim is not actually getting a tryout, as they are still on hold across the league, but he will be getting a physical. He was placed in IR by the Jaguars last October due to a concussion and ankle injury. There has yet to be an update on his status, so his upcoming physical will bring more clarity to his current health.

Jul 27, 2020 6:49 PM EST

Let go by Jaguars

The Jaguars will release Swaim (concussion/ankle), Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Swaim logged 13 catches for 65 yards in six games during his lone season with Jacksonville in 2019 before being placed on IR in October. The 2015 Dallas seventh-rounder will now look to catch on elsewhere, but he'd need to land in an ideal situation in order to carve out any sort of high-volume passing role.

Mar 17, 2020 10:01 AM EST

Quiet first season in Jacksonville

Swaim (concussion/ankle) finished the season on injured reserve and had 13 catches for 65 yards in six games.

Analysis: The 26-year-old signed a two-year, $6.6 million contract with the Jaguars in the spring, but he barely played more than 50 percent of the offensive snaps before landing on IR in October, despite rookie Josh Oliver also being sidelined. Jacksonville could save over $3.7 million in cap space by released Swaim, so he's certainly not guaranteed to be back in 2020 despite currently being under contract.

Jan 22, 2020 3:43 PM EST

Ruled out Week 7

Swaim (concussion/ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Cincinnati.

Analysis: Swaim sustained the concussion and ankle injury during last Sunday's loss to the Saints and was unable to practice this week. Rookie Josh Oliver (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation and is primed to make his NFL debut against the Bengals. Seth DeValve should also see a decent share of offensive snaps this week.

Oct 18, 2019 11:29 AM EST

Can't practice, as expected

Swaim (concussion/ankle) did not practice Thursday.

Analysis: Swaim has now missed two straight practices. In addition to working his way through the league's concussion protocol, he appears to be dealing with ankle injury. Barring any major developments during Friday's practice, Swaim is on track to miss Sunday's tilt against the Bengals. On a positive note for the Jaguars, rookie tight end Josh Oliver (hamstring) could make his NFL debut Week 7.

Oct 17, 2019 1:55 PM EST

To miss practice Thursday

Swaim (concussion/ankle) is not expected to practice Thursday.

Analysis: This will be the second straight day of missed practice for Swaim, who appears to still be going through concussion protocol after the injury forced him to leave Sunday's game against the Saints. The report also states that Swaim picked up an ankle injury, so it looks like the tight end is at serious risk of missing Sunday's matchup with the Bengals. Swaim is the third tight end to pop up on the injury report for the Jaguars and has left the team rather thin at the position heading into Week 7.

Oct 17, 2019 7:54 AM EST

Dealing with concussion

Swaim (concussion) won't practice Wednesday, Michael DiRocco of reports.

Analysis: With James O'Shaughnessy (knee) out for the season, Josh Oliver still recovering from a hamstring injury and Swaim in the concussion protocol, Seth DeValve and Ben Koyack are left as the healthy tight ends in Jacksonville. There is a chance that Swaim and/or Oliver could be ready for Sunday's game in Cincinnati. Swaim and DeValve drew two targets apiece in last week's 13-6 loss to the Saints.

Oct 16, 2019 7:36 AM EST

Exits Sunday's game

Swaim was forced out of Sunday's game against the Saints with a possible concussion, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Analysis: Prior to his exit from the contest, Swaim caught one of his two targets for five yards. Next up for the Jaguars' tight end targets in his absence is Seth DeValve.
