Swearinger appears likely to start at free safety for the Redskins this season, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. "He just looks like a safety back there," head coach Jay Gruden noted. "He has got a lot of talent. We know that he's a physical guy, but as far as coverages and breaking up things, he's got a lot of confidence and he's going to really, really emerge as a top safety not only for this team but in this league."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2015

The 2013 second-rounder recorded 73 tackles and two interceptions for the Texans last season and will provide depth at safety.

2014

Swearinger finished the 2013 season in the starting lineup, but is likely to become a backup in 2014 after the Texans signed free agents Chris Clemons and Kendrick Lewis. Still, he brought an attitude to the position the Texans liked in 2013. If he can curtail the extra-curricular stuff (i.e. limit unnecessary penalties), he could press for playing time.

2013

Swearinger, a second round draft pick in 2013, is expected to be one of the four safeties on the roster to open the season.
