HOUSTON-- The Houston Texans have signed former Lions and Cowboys kick returner Reggie Swinton.
Swinton, in his fifth season out of Murray State, can boast four career touchdown returns (two kickoffs, two punts) and two receiving scores. He owns a career kickoff return average of 23.9 yards on 145 returns and a career punt return average of 10.9 on 90 attempts. He also has 23 career catches for 280 yards.
Swinton was claimed by Detroit off waivers from Green Bay on 10/10/03 after the Cowboys traded him to the Packers on 9/30/03.
