Memphis Showboats Sign RB Titus Swen, Release Kennedy Brooks

Memphis Showboats Sign RB Titus Swen, Release Kennedy Brooks

It’s been a busy week for the Memphis Showboats. With a full week of training camp under way, a personnel move has been made: RB Kennedy Brooks was released, and Titus Swen was added to the roster on Saturday.

Titus Swen burst onto the scene at Wyoming in 2019 making the most of his reps, totaling 337 yards and a touchdown on 67 carries (5 YPC).

After a year off in 2020, Swen came back with a vengeance in 2021. He only started in two of 13 games played, but racked up 785 rushing yards and seven scores. Titus was also utilized on special teams, returning ten kicks for 186 yards.

Swen impressed in 2022, starting in 11 of 12 games, and cracked over 1,000 rushing yards that year alongside eight touchdowns.

Coming out of college, Titus Swen signed with the Indianapolis Colts and spent a bit of time with the team during the spring and summer. Now, he’ll look to get his professional career off the ground in the UFL, with the Memphis Showboats.

Final Thoughts

With training camp fully underway, this leaves General Manager Dennis Polian and Head Coach John DeFilippo with some tough decisions to make. After picking up Kennedy Brooks in the dispersal draft, the Showboats have decided to let him walk after one week of practice.

Kennedy Brooks was a star at Oklahoma, totaling over 3,300 rushing yards and 31 touchdowns. He couldn’t quite find his footing in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles – and had signed with the Philadelphia Stars prior to the merger killing the organization. One would expect Brooks to get another look at some point.

As it stands right now, the Showboats running back room consists of:

Darius Victor
Kerrith Whyte
Trey Williams
Titus Swen

Most recently, Memphis also added OT James Tunstall to the roster.
