NFL teams were required to cut their rosters down to 53 players Saturday.

Former Pleasant Valley High School and Butte College tight end Geoff Swaim survived and landed a spot on the Dallas Cowboys.

The seventh-round draft pick out of the University of Texas was primarily a blocking tight end in college, catching a total of 13 passes for 84 yards. He finished the preseason with seven catches for 83 yards and his four catches for 57 yards two weeks ago against the 49ers led the Cowboys.

Swaim joins three other tight ends on Dallas' roster, including Jason Witten, Gavin Escobar and James Hanna.

Swaim joins Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay) as former Pleasant Valley High and Butte College players who have ascended to the pinnacle of the sport.

Dallas opens the season Monday, Sept. 13th, against Houston.
