Cardinals claim D.J. Swearinger off waivers

The All-22 D.J. Swearinger could be a major difference-maker in the playoffs

The Washington Redskins released safety D.J. Swearinger on Monday.

The Redskins released Swearinger after he was highly critical of defensive coordinator Greg Manusky following a loss to the Tennessee Titans last Saturday.

In fact, no other team in the National Football League besides the Arizona Cardinals had the chance to claim the Pro Bowl alternate. That's on me. I've got to control that and get better at that, but like I said, live and learn and keep moving forward. He signed a three-year deal with Washington worth $13.5 million with $9 million in guaranteed money in 2017 and was named a Pro Bowl alternate this year.

"When you've got a guy who's been here a year and a half, two years, there's going to be friendships that are going happen, and, obviously, there's a natural reaction to when you lose a good friend of yours and a pretty good player", he said.

A day after being cut by the Washington Redskins, he announced Tuesday he'd been picked up by the Arizona Cardinals.

D.J. Swearinger says he's been released by the Redskins after criticizing team's coaching

Swearinger, 27, produced 53 tackles, four interceptions, three forced fumbles and a sack over 15 games in 2018. That's probably documented. I try to give my insight, but you know, it doesn't work. Swearinger over the weekend and now Kansas City Chiefs fans are hoping their team can land them the flawless Christmas gift.

"I can only control what I can control", he said.

Hopefully, the Redskins will continue to purge players, coaches, and executives that continue to underperform or become distractions. If I play on Sunday, I'll be more than ready to play. He also said that "the coaches think I'm too smart or I'm a weapon with my smarts".

"I express my frustrations every single time I come off the field", he said when asked if he confronted Manusky. The hard-hitting safety reportedly was claimed off waivers by the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. But Wilks, who had yet to sit down wtih Swearinger, added that the reason the safety was released from Washington wouldn't be tolerated.

Cunningham is the seventh offensive lineman the Cardinals have placed on injured reserve this season.
