Cardinals' D.J. Swearinger: Cardinals debut put on hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swearinger won't play in Sunday's season finale versus the Seahawks, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports.

Swearinger has been with the Cardinals for less than a week, which wasn't enough time to learn the playbook and get into the lineup. He'll look to start fresh in his second stint with Arizona next season. Swearinger could battle for a hefty role since he had 53 tackles, 10 pass breakups and four interceptions this season, although current starters Budda Baker and Antonie Bethea are both signed for three more years.

Cardinals' D.J. Swearinger: Lands with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swearinger posted on his personal Instagram account Tuesday that he was claimed off waivers by the Cardinals.

The Redskins informed the veteran safety of his release from the team Monday, two days after he criticized defensive coordinator Greg Manusky's playcalling in the Week 16 loss to the Titans. Though many teams were believed to be interested in scooping up Swearinger off waivers, he'll ultimately land back in Arizona, where he played for portions of the 2015 and 2016 seasons. He'll likely check in as the No. 3 safety on the depth chart behind starters Antoine Bethea and Budda Baker.

D.J. Swearinger: Released by Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swearinger was released by the Redskins on Monday, Grant Paulsen of The Athletic reports.

Swearinger comes shortly after he criticized his coaches. Coach Jay Gruden talked about Swearinger's comments after Sunday's loss to the Titans, saying, "what he's doing is not helpful one bit," and, "it is a distraction," JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. Swearinger had been a starting safety for the Redskins and he'll likely have suitors this offseason.

Redskins' D.J. Swearinger: Notches sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swearinger recorded three tackles (all solo), including a sack, and a forced fumble in Sunday's loss to Houston.

Swearinger hasn't recorded many tackles this year, but he's been a quality player for the Redskins. His performance Sunday gives him 37 tackles, including two sacks, nine passes defensed, four interceptions and three forced fumbles on the season. Looking ahead, Swearinger and the Redskins will take on the Cowboys in Week 12.

Redskins' D.J. Swearinger: Makes preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After missing the preseason opener, Swearinger (hamstring) retook the field during Thursday's Week 2 preseason game.

Swearinger recorded just one tackle on the night, but it's at least a good sign that his hamstring issue appears to be behind him. The seventh-year safety is slated to start at safety for the Redskins again in 2018 after posting career-high marks in defensive snaps (1,095), tackles (61) and interceptions (four) in 2017.
