Swope: Joining Texans would be a 'special opportunity'
Ryan Swope is a Texans fan.
The Texas A&M wide receiver is in Indianapolis this weekend for the NFL Combine and spoke to reporters on Saturday about what it would mean to him to join the Texans.
It's no secret that the Texans could use some help in their receiving corps, especially after DeVier Posey went down with and Achilles injury.
"I mean, that’d just be a special opportunity," Swope said to reporters at the Combine about possibly joining the Texans. It’s right down the street from me. I grew up a Texans fan. It’d be a great opportunity."
Swope caught 72 passes for 913 yards and eight touchdowns during his senior season at Texas A&M. In his junior season, he caught 89 passes for 1,207 yards and 11 touchdowns. During his career, he was able to catch passes from Ryan Tannehill and Johnny Manziel.
Swope actually knows the son of Texans' head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak's son, Klint Kubiak, is an offensive graduate assistant at A&M. Swope said Klint Kubiak coached the inside receivers. He also said he keeps in touch with Klint Kubiak often and text messages him weekly.
"I don’t know," Swope said when asked if Klint Kubiak put in a good word. "He never said that. I’m sure he’s probably said a few good things about me."
And what, exactly, would Swope bring to the Texans?
"Just a competitive edge," he said. "I just like to go out and compete. I like to win. I’m hungry to win. I think I can do that real well."
