Former Jacket Tre Swilling signs with Saints practice squad

Former Georgia Tech cornerback Tre Swilling has been signed to the New Orleans Saints’ practice squad, the team announced Tuesday. Swilling was originally signed by the Tennessee Titans after going undrafted in April and was cut at the end of the exhibition season.

It’s a homecoming for Swilling, who grew up in New Orleans. His father Pat was a star linebacker for the Saints and is a member of the team’s Hall of Fame.
