Saints Signing S D.J. Swearinger, Waiving DB T.J. Green


Sean Fazende is reporting that the Saints are signing veteran S D.J. Swearinger to a contract on Wednesday and waiving DB T.J. Green.

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 Swearinger loose during the 2015 season and he eventually caught on with the Cardinals. The Redskins signed him to a three-year, $13.5 million contract back in 2017 but elected to waive him at the end of last season.

Swearinger was later claimed by the Cardinals before being released a few months ago. He later signed on with the Raiders, but was waived a few weeks ago. 

In 2019, Swearinger has appeared in eight games for the Cardinals and Raiders and recorded 48 tackles and two passes defended.

We had him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
