Cardinals Claim S D.J. Swearinger Off Waivers From Redskins


Former Redskins S D.J. Swearinger announced on Instagram that he has been claimed off waivers by the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Swearinger, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Texans back in 2013. He lasted just over two years in Houston before he was waived at the start of the 2015 season and later claimed off of waivers by the Buccaneers.

Tampa Bay cut him loose during the 2015 season and he eventually caught on with the Cardinals.

The Redskins signed Swearinger to a three-year, $13.5 million contract back in 2017 but elected to waive him on Monday.

In 2018, Swearinger has appeared in 15 games for the Redskins and recorded 52 tackles, one sack, four interceptions, three forced fumbles, a recovery and 10 pass defenses.
