Cardinals Releasing S D.J. Swearinger

     

According to Ian Rapoport, the Cardinals are releasing veteran S D.J. Swearinger on Monday. 

Swearinger had been a starter for a Cardinals defense that has struggled so far this season. 

Swearinger, 28, 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 at the end of last season. He was claimed by the Cardinals.

In 2019, Swearinger has appeared in four games for the Cardinals and recorded 28 total tackles, no interceptions and one pass defense. He’s rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 73 safety out of 80 qualifying players so far this season.
