LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Redskins couldn’t silence ‘The mouth of the South’ – so they’ve parted ways.
The move comes two days after Swearinger criticized Washington defensive coordinator Greg Manusky during his postgame interview following Saturday’s loss at Tennessee. Head coach Jay Gruden responded to the comments yesterday, saying he was ‘disappointed’ in Swearinger’s choice to take ‘their business’ outside of the walls of the team’s locker room.
Swearinger had 51 tackles and four interceptions in 15 starts for the Redskins in 2018. The 27-year-old signed a three-year contract back in 2017 that runs through the 2019 season.
