JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars' preparations for the new league year continue.
Tuesday's move toward that end: terminating the contract of tight end Geoff Swaim, who played one season with the Jaguars after joining the team last offseason.
The NFL's 2020 League Year is scheduled to begin Wednesday at 4 p.m. Teams can officially begin signing free agents and finalizing trades at that time.
Swaim, who has played five NFL seasons, signed with the Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent from the Dallas Cowboys last offseason. He played just six games with two starts before being placed on injured reserve on October 22 with an ankle injury and a concussion.
Swaim caught 13 passes for 65 yards last season.
Swaim's release leaves seven tight ends on the Jaguars' roster: Seth DeValve, Nick O'Leary, Ben Koyack, Charles Jones, James O'Shaughnessy, Matt Sokol and Josh Oliver. O'Shaughnessy missed the last 11 games of last season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and DeValve, O'Leary and Koyack are all scheduled to become unrestricted free agents at the start of the 2020 NFL League Year.
Jaguars tight ends overall last season caught 59 passes for 459 yards and three touchdowns.
