Redskins release D.J. Swearinger after critical comments on defensive coordinator

Redskins release D.J. Swearinger after critical comments on defensive coordinator

Swearinger, who said that he may watch "more film than coaches, "via NFL.com, sounded off on the Redskins after Saturday's game - particularly defensive coordinator Greg Manusky". "I'm a very smart football player".

Former teammate Trent Williams took to Instagram and posted his support for Swearinger in wake of the news of his release.

But Redskins coach Jay Gruden said this week that Swearinger had been asked multiple times to temper his criticisms of the team and coaches prior to Monday's move.

"I can't tell you what needs to be changed".




Washington lost 25-16 at Tennessee on Saturday night. "At the end of the day, when you work for a company or a team, it's best that you try to be positive with your remarks". So I can only put my heart in this s--, dog. and give them what I can give them. "I think it was a terrible call, but I feel like you don't put Fabian in that situation with a backup quarterback". Sometimes it only takes a player or two to turn things around and the Chiefs could really use someone like Swearinger in their secondary. That opened the door for the Cardinals to give themselves a Christmas present by bringing back Swearinger, claiming him on waivers Tuesday. "Make him beat us". When I look at film of other teams, I always see nickels blitzing, I always see safeties blitzing.

"We ain't executing. We ain't getting the job done".

Per Pro Football Focus, Swearinger has allowed 28 catches on 45 targets for 382 yards (207 after the catch), two touchdowns and four interceptions. With Giants Pro Bowl safety Landon Collins injured, Swearinger could wind up being named to the Pro Bowl as a replacement.

The play Swearinger was complaining about came with 6:53 left in the game, and Washington up, 16-12.
