At some point we’re in this together’ Jay Gruden says he’ll review D.J. Swearinger’s public criticisms

The Arizona Cardinals have claimed D.J. Swearinger off waivers.

Swearinger, who said that he may watch "more film than coaches, "via NFL.com, sounded off on the Redskins after Saturday's game - particularly defensive coordinator Greg Manusky".

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden told reporters Sunday he was disappointed in Swearinger's comments - after the two had talked previously about keeping team issues in-house - and planned to meet with the safety on Monday to discuss punishment.

December 31, 2017: Swearinger records a season-high nine solo tackles and a forced fumble in the final game of the season, an 18-10 loss to the Giants. "It's just learning, though, that I'll keep my mouth shut next time and just keep playing football and do what I do on the football field and let my talents do the talking". "I don't expect everybody to be happy about it".

Swearinger said he needs to control himself better when he gets emotional after games. But the Arizona Cardinals were awarded Swearinger over the Packers and Oakland Raiders based on waiver priority, which is determined by record.

Trade sources pegged the opening day figures at Rs 18.50 crore and the collection by Sunday evening at Rs 51.75 crore. Similarly, Swara tweeted: "Aanand, SRK, (writer) Himanshu Sharma redefine what hero and heroine are for Bollywood ".

Swearinger, 27, had three interceptions, nine passes defensed and 73 tackles in 20 games (13 starts) over parts of two seasons with the Cardinals. It is what many believe had paved the way for Swearinger's exit from Washington which shocked fans and experts alike, considering that he was among the few and most consistent performer on a team that's going nowhere this year. "It's frustrating, I don't know what to say about it".

Wilks said he will talk to Swearinger about keeping any criticism in-house. "That's where the frustration comes in at, when we don't win".

It's uncertain whether Swearinger will play in Sunday's season finale at Seattle or how much he figures in the Cardinals' plans for next season. "He would quickly understand that".

"It's been a rocky Christmas for me and my family", he said. I guess we didn't make the plays. Swearinger said he learned his lesson about criticizing coaches, which cost him his job in Washington.

Cunningham is the seventh offensive lineman the Cardinals have placed on injured reserve this season.
