  • The Los Angeles Rams were the rumored team that Lions GM Brad Holmes contacted during the 2023 NFL Draft, but they declined the trade offer.
  • Swift's move to the Eagles presents him with a fresh start and an opportunity to make an impact on their offense. However, as he is entering a contract year, he needs to perform well to secure a solid contract.

Bottom Line: Fresh start for Swift

Unfortunately, things did not work out for Swift with the Lions, and he will not get a fresh start with the Eagles. Swift is going into a contract year, so you can bet he will do absolutely everything in his power to stay on the field and make an impact on the Eagles' offense. If he balls out, he could land a solid contract following the season, but if he does not, he may just fade away.
