Free agent safety D.J. Swearinger has signed a three-year deal with Washington, NFL Network reported.

The report said Swearinger will make $6 million in 2017.

Swearinger, 25, made 12 starts and played in all 16 games for Arizona last season. He had a career-high three interceptions.

A second-round pick of the Texans in 2013, Swearinger also played seven games for the Buccaneers in 2015 before landing in Arizona. The Cardinals also lost safety Tony Jefferson in free agency to the Ravens.

Washington turned to veteran Donte Whitner for safety help last season and feels Swearinger provides an upgrade at that spot.

    Wow the Cards continue to bleed defensive starters. That loud BANG you heard was the sound of their window slamming shut.

    I love people talking about the Cardinals window closing when they’re losing a guy like Swearinger who, while capable, is no cornerstone of a defense.

    Five bucks says Redskins fans are going, ‘who?’

    Usually when Armchair GM’s like Fordmandalay up there crap on someone else’s lawn, it’s because their’s is already a sewer.

    All good by me.

    Personally, I’ll trust in Keim that maybe he knows something we don’t.

    i absolutely love this signing. ive been a swearinger fan since his days at south carolina….as a redskins fan he always reminded me a lot of sean taylor, partly because he wore 36 in college and partly because hes a HITTER. he plays with passion and although hes bounced around between a few teams hes still young and a much improved player. great signing!
