Swift was traded to the Eagles on Saturday for a 2025 fourth-round pick and additional compensation in the 2023 NFL Draft, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The writing was on the wall as soon as the Lions drafted Jahmyr Gibbs in the first-round of the 2023 NFL Draft. The third-year running back was unique dynamic as both a runner and pass catcher when healthy, but the Lions never really unleashed the 2020 second-round pick either due to concerns regarding his consistent availability or just an organizational philosophy. In Philadelphia, Swift should get ample opportunities to prove his worth even if he ends up splitting time with incumbents Kenny Gainwell and Boston Scott, and offseason addition Rashaad Penny.
