NFL-Washington Redskins at Tennessee Titans

The Washington Post

The Redskins have released safety D.J. Swearinger after he was critical of his own coaching staff after their loss to the Tennesse Titans.

According to Grant Paulsen of The Athletic, Swearinger was called into coach Jay Gruden’s office this morning and was released.

Speaking to reporters after their 25-16 to the Titans, Swearinger ripped Skins Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky saying said “We should have blowed them out.  “If I’m the D-coordinator, I’m calling zone every time on third down because you got a backup quarterback. Make him beat us. “We’re playing a backup quarterback. Why would you put us in man-to-man? We are our best on defense when we look at the quarterback.”

Swearinger started in all 15 games for the Skins, registering 53 tackles 4 interceptions and 3 forced fumbles.
