Swope was drafted in the 6th round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals.


On July 25, 2013, the Cardinals announced that Swope was placed on the reserve/retired list due to the ongoing concussion issues.[5] Even though he is retired, he is on the Reserve/Retired List and the Cardinals have rights to him if he comes out of retirement. They will lose his draft rights when his rookie contracts eventually ends.
