Brett Swain is a wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers and was drafted in the 7th round of the 2008 NFL Draft. As a San Diego State grad, Swain played four seasons for the San Diego Aztecs. During his senior year with the Aztecs, Brett Swain had his best season and earned second-team All—Mountain West Conference honors after starting all 12 games. That season, Swain had career highs with 58 catches, 973 yards and five touchdowns for San Diego State.
Swain signed with the Packers on July 23, 2008 before he was later cut and signed to the team’s practice squad. Brett spent the entire 2008 season on the practice squad where he made five catches for 28 yards and returned two punts for 10 yards in four preseason games as a rookie.
That first year with Green Bay, Brett Swain made several community outreach appearances and appeared at the annual City of Green Bay “Kids Day,” as well as volunteering at the NFL/United Way’s “Hometown Huddle” event that featured the opening of a new playground at a local elementary school. In the end of the season, the GB Packers decided to give Brett Swain another go, re-signing him to a future contract.
