D.J. Swearinger waived by Redskins

In all likelihood, former Washington safety D.J. Swearinger is a high-maintenance guy.

It didn't take long for SC football alum D.J. Swearinger to find work.

Swearinger is a nice veteran safety option entering the market at a key time for teams to consider as they prepare their postseason rosters.

The Cardinals, the only three-win team in the National Football League after 16 weeks, have top priority on every waiver opportunity. He was selected as an alternate to the Pro Bowl.

Previously, Gruden had said he would discipline Swearinger for his disparaging comments. Swearinger said he asked Gruden why he was released, and the coach didn't give him an answer.

"I'm not giving excuses on my play, I've missed a few tackles, but I feel like with a lot of these playmakers we got on the team, you should try to get your players involved", Swearinger said.

Swearinger's release followed his latest postgame criticism. He was promoted a week later, appearing in four games for a team that eventually reached the NFC Championship game. The Cardinals made a decision to let both he and fellow safety Tony Jefferson go to free agency, where both got much larger deals than the Cardinals were willing to offer.

Williams posted a photo on Instagram of himself and Swearinger with the caption, "Some s-- is impossible to understand".

Then again, for a team like the Chiefs, the needs in the secondary are actually a primary concern as the team hopes that Eric Berry can stay healthy, Dan Sorensen can return to form and backup safeties can be effective.

Let's say D.J. Swearinger does somehow become available for the Chiefs.
