Yes, you read that correctly. The New Orleans Saints are bringing back D.J. Swearinger. The 5-foot-10, 28-year-old safety played just one game with the team last season and made a couple of tackles, also notching one pass deflection.
Prior to spending 2019 with three separate teams, Swearinger was the starting safety for the Washington Redskins, starting 31 games in two seasons. He racked up eight interceptions and over 130 tackles during those two seasons with the Redskins.
That said, the news regarding Swearinger’s signing was first reported by the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson.
The Saints may be looking to brace for a potential fall out with Vonn Bell.
