Sam Swank Signs With Philadelphia Eagles

Sam Swank from Wake Forest University signed a free agent contract with the Philadelphia Eagles as a kicker.

He is the son of Gary and Sheila Swank. He is also the grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Swank of Shamokin Township. If fully recovered from injury look for him to push David Akers in camp. Either way, Swank's strong leg got him a shot at the NFL, now consistency has to take over to let him stay in the league.

Growing up in Florida and playing at Wake Forest, his ability to kick in the cold can come into question. Good luck to Sam and congratulations to the Swank family.
