ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent tight end Erik Swoope.

The Raiders released quarterback Landry Jones on Wednesday to make room on the 90-man roster.

Swoope had eight catches for 87 yards and three touchdowns in seven games last season with Indianapolis. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Colts in 2014 after playing college basketball at Miami. He has 23 career catches for 384 yards and four TDs in 24 games.

Jones’ departure leaves Mike Glennon and Nathan Peterman as the backups to Derek Carr.
