Tyrone Swoopes: Run-blocking role in 2019

Swoopes finished the 2019 season with one catch for five yards over six games.

Analysis: Swoopes was brought up from the practice squad after Will Dissly went down with a season-ending Achilles injury and Luke Willson sustained a serious hamstring injury. Jacob Hollister, who will be a restricted free agent in March, served as the No. 1 tight end and will likely stick around in 2020 while Dissly gets healthy. Swoopes will be an exclusive-rights free agent, and he's not a lock to make the 53-man roster.

Tyrone Swoopes: Joins Seattle's 53-man roster

Swoopes was promoted to the Seahawks' 53-man roster Friday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Swoopes signed to the team's practice squad in mid-October and now makes his way to the active roster. The 25-year-old appeared in one game with Seattle in each of the last two seasons, catching his lone target for 23 yards. Swoopes could serve as the No. 2 tight end Sunday in Philadelphia if Luke Willson (hamstring) is unable to play.

The Seahawks waived Swoopes (lower leg) from injured reserve with an injury settlement Tuesday, per the official league transactions report.

Analysis: Swoopes was placed on IR earlier this month due to a lower leg injury of undisclosed severity, and was seen in a walking boot. The third-year pro will now be free to search for a depth role elsewhere in the league when recovered.

Analysis: It's still unclear exactly what sort of injury Swoopes suffered or how severe it is, but after being seen in a walking boot, Swoopes was waived and is now on Seattle's injured reserve. He will remain there for the season unless he and the Seahawks agree on an injury settlement.

Tyrone Swoopes: Cut by Seattle

The Seahawks waived Swoopes (lower leg) on Saturday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Tyrone Swoopes: Spotted in leg accesory

Swoopes (lower leg) was unable to practice Tuesday and was spotted in a walking boot, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: It's unclear how Swoopes picked up the injury, as the team didn't place him on the PUP or NFI list heading into training camp. Even though he's in a boot, it's still tough to tell how severe the injury is, as Swoopes could be wearing it as a precaution to a lesser injury. In any event, the Texas product will hope to get healthy soon as he faces an uphill battle to make the roster.

Analysis: Swoope was waived by the Seahawks four days ago to make room for Ed Dickson on the active roster.

Swoopes signed with the Seahawks' practice squad Tuesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Swoopes played one game for the Seahawks last season and recorded just two offensive snaps. With Will Dissly (knee) out for the season and Ed Dickson (quadriceps) remaining out until Week 7, Swoopes will be an important addition that may have an opportunity to elevate at some point.
