D.J. Swearinger working out for Raiders

The Raiders are taking a look at a veteran safety on Monday.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team is working out D.J. Swearinger.

Swearinger started and played every snap in the Arizona’s first four games this season, but got released before September came to an end. He had 28 tackles before getting dropped from the roster.

If Raiders coach Jon Gruden is looking for some insight into what it’s like to coach Swearinger, he can give his brother Jay a call because Swearinger was in Washington for most of the last two seasons.

That report may not be all that positive. Swearinger started 31 games over two seasons in Washington, but was released last December after making critical remarks about defensive coordinator Greg Manusky.

  1. It would be to get him because him last name is swearinger and mine is Swearingen. I like a jersey with his last name would be awesome

  2. There are clearly major issues with DJ behind the scenes, because when he’s on his game he is arguably one of the best playmakers in the league. The Redskins defense went from #8 in the league to absolutely abysmal without him in the backfield, and to be cut by the Cardinals after four games is just plain strange.

  3. Maybe Jon wants to can Guenther and needs to bring a player in that will tell Pauly he is doing a terrible job. 🙂

    The Raiders would be a playoff team with a better defense. They currently will keep any team in the league in the game with terrible play and coaching.

  4. Texans cut him after he refused to play on special teams and walked out of a meeting, his off field lack of maturity issues didn’t help either.
    Musta been pretty bad to cut a second rounder that can play after two seasons.
