Cardinals' D.J. Swearinger: Promoted to 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals promoted D.J. 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 | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed D.J. 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 | RotoWire

D.J. 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 | CBSSports.com

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.

Texans release safety D.J. Swearinger
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Texans have reportedly cut ties with safety D.J. Swearinger after an odd exchange on Monday, according to the Houston Chronicle. The team later confirmed the report.

Swearinger took to Instagram on Monday after he apparently received the news of his termination, saying "It's time for a new chapter and the defining moment of my career."

Texans coach Bill O'Brien originally disputed the report. Swearinger totaled 74 tackles with two interceptions in 16 games in 2014.
