Daxton Swanson (born March 21, 1991) is an American Football cornerback who is currently a free agent. He also played college football for Sam Houston State.

College History

Swanson spent his first year in Toledo University, before transferring to Sam Houston State the next year, immediately earning a starting position.[1] He was an honourable mention All-Southland Conference selection in his sophomore year, a second-team All-Southland Conference player in his junior year, and a first-team All-Southland Conference player in his senior year, getting 46 tackles, 14 pass breakups, and 4 interceptions.[2] He ended his college career as the all-time leader in interceptions at Sam Houston State, with 14.[3]

Professional career

Swanson declared for the 2013 NFL Draft, but went undrafted. One factor of him being undrafted was that he tore his hamstring two weeks before the combine. He signed with the Indianapolis Colts in time for the 2013 season, but was placed on the injured reserve and was released in October. He was then signed with the San Francisco 49ers on the practice squad before being released in May 2014.[4] Swanson then signed for the New England Patriots and played in the pre-season, recovering a fumble against the New York Giants in the fourth quarter of the final pre-season game. Swanson was released and later re-signed to the practice squad on September 17.[5] Swanson was a member of the Super Bowl XLIX winning squad as a member of the Patriots.
