Freddie Swain played all four years at Florida, though only saw real consistent time his junior and senior seasons.
Here is likely what Swain’s rookie contract will look like:
Because the 2020 cap hit is less than $750,000 it won’t impact 2020 cap space during the offseason.
Swain joins Colby Parkinson as the two rookies who have signed their deals thus far, leaving six rookies to finalize.
Swain also has an uphill battle ahead of him, with Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf and Phillip Dorsett as the presumed locks for three wide receiver positions. He’d have to beat out some combination of David Moore, Seahawk legend John Ursua, the rumors of Josh Gordon, and a squadron of other rookies in order to make the roster.
