Redskins release D.J. Swearinger after coaching comments

December 24, 2018

The Washington Redskins released D.J. Swearinger on Monday, two days after the safety openly ripped defensive coordinator Greg Manusky’s defensive play-calling following the team’s 25-16 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Swearinger told 106.7 The Fan he was called into coach Jay Gruden’s office and was let go.

On Sunday, Gruden said he was “quite disappointed” with Swearinger.

Swearinger called the move “a slap in the face.”
