  • Cardinals' D.J. Swearinger: Re-ups with Cardinals
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Cardinals and Swearinger agreed to a contract Monday, the team's official site reports. Swearinger logged a brief spell on the Cardinals' practice squad last season before his services were required due to the Tyrann Mathieu's torn ACL. In six games thereafter -- including the team's two-game playoff run -- Swearinger recorded seven tackles (all solo), one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and one pass defended. If Mathieu's rehab extends into next season, Swearinger could pick up a modest role in the safety rotation, but the presence of Tyvon Branch and Tony Jefferson will likely limit him to a special-teams role.

  • The Cardinals promoted Swearinger from the practice squad to the 53-man roster Tuesday. With the Cardinals staring down a Thursday night showdown against the Vikings, the safety corps hasn't been intact at practice this week. While Rashad Johnson (ankle) was limited both Monday and Tuesday, Tony Jefferson sat out Monday due to a hamstring injury, before returning in a limited capacity one day later. Even if the duo suits up Thursday, Swearinger will provide support to the secondary and may even log a decent number of snaps.

  • D.J. Swearinger: Signs with Cardinals practice squad
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Cardinals signed Swearinger to the practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. In parts of three seasons with the Texans and Buccaneers, the 2013 second-round pick has totaled 157 tackles (115 solo), three interceptions, four forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries across 39 games. If another member of the Cardinals' secondary joins Jerraud Powers (strained calf) on the injury list, Swearinger could be called upon to serve as a backup.

  • D.J. Swearinger: Released on Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Swearinger was released by the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. A 2013 second-round draft pick, Swearinger has rightfully earned a reputation for delivering big hits. Of course, many of those hits have been illegal, and his work in pass coverage leaves much to be desired. He may have to wait until next season to get another look from an NFL team.

  • Buccaneers claim safety D.J. Swearinger
    By Brandon Wise

    The Buccaneers have claimed safety D.J. Swearinger off waivers, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Swearinger was released by the Texans on Monday after some confusion on whether he was stilll on the team or not. Swearinger totaled 74 tackles with two interceptions in 2014 for Houston. As a result, Tampa Bay cut defensive back M.D. Jennings. He recorded 74 tackles with one sack in 16 games for Tampa Bay in 2014.
