D.J. Swearinger has been released by the Washington Redskins, the safety announced exclusively on 106.7 The Fan.
"How'd the meeting go?" Paulsen asked.
"I was released," Swearinger said.
"Yeah," Swearinger confirmed.
"You're kidding," said Paulsen.
"Nah, I'm not kidding at all about that," said Swearinger.
"Okay. Well, we've got a lot to discuss then," Paulsen noted. "What did Jay Gruden say to you when he released you?"
"Only thing he said was just I've been in his meeting room three times and he was going to release me," Swearinger said. "I asked him why, he didn't give me an explanation. So I guess it was just because of the media. Only way I know is to keep grinding and keep being myself. You know, just get ready for the next journey, man, the next chapter in my life."
