January 31, 2018

Now that Washington Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger has had time to digest the team trading cornerback Kendall Fuller to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for quarterback Alex Smith, he is still upset.

Swearinger sounded off Wednesday on his Twitter account posting three tweets before deleting two of them.

Swearinger deleted the first two tweets, but still has this one up:

Men And Woman Lie!!! #NUMBERS Tell The Truth!!! Offense Wins Games!! Defense Wins Championships!!! DJ Swearinger (@JungleBoi_Swagg) January 31, 2018

Fuller, 22, was very close to the rest of the Redskins’ defensive backs, particularly Swearinger and cornerback Josh Norman. Fuller also took major strides in 2017, being graded as one of the league’s best slot defenders.

Swearinger was also outspoken during the season with his comments over the Redskins’ preparation.
