D.J. Swearinger: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

The Texans have waived Swearinger, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Swearinger, the 57th overall pick in the 2013 draft, is a candidate to be scooped up on waivers, on the heels of a 2014 season in which he recorded 73 tackles and two picks for the Texans.
The Texans plan to part ways with Swearinger, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Texans have been trying to move Swearinger, a 2013 second-rounder who is coming off a season in which he recorded 73 tackles and two picks. While the report does not clarify whether he will be traded or released, the safety is, in any case, not in the team's 2015 plans.
The Texans are trying to trade Swearinger, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

A second-round pick out of South Carolina in 2013, Swearinger has started 22 games in his first two seasons in the league, piling up 106 tackles (68 solo), three interceptions, four forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, a sack and 10 passes defensed. While his draft pedigree and penchant for hard hits could lead to some interest around the league, Swearinger is likely available because the Texans don't have much faith in his coverage skills or tackling. According to Pro Football Focus, Swearinger's 16 missed tackles tied for 12th among all safeties last season, while his -11.1 overall grade was the ninth worst.
Swearinger is active for Thursday night's game versus the Colts.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for D.J. Swearinger.

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.
