Washington Redskins starter has vulgar response for Alex Smith trade


Washington Redskins defensive back D.J. Swearinger apparently isn't excited about the team's trade with the Kansas City Chiefs to acquire quarterback Alex Smith.

In a series of since-deleted tweets, Swearinger voiced his displeasure of the Redskins' decision to deal cornerback Kendall Fuller and called the move both "bulls**t."

"Never Saw Any Bulls**t Like This In My Life!! Idc who i rub wrong because you never sat in a meeting nor put in work with my dawg!!"

"People say they wanna win right but you throw away your best defender!?!? Somebody you can set a standard with?!?! #Defense will win championships!!"

"And We Took a Major Step down from the best slot corner In The Game!! No disrespect to nobody on my squad or coming to my squad but we basically took a step backwards by giving away (Fuller) who graded 90 overall which is Elite and hard too do!!! Smh."

Fuller is a promising cornerback who enjoyed a productive second season in 2017. The former third-round pick recorded 55 touchdowns and four interceptions, appearing in all 16 games for the Redskins.

On Tuesday, the Kansas City Star reported that the Chiefs reached a deal with the Redskins to trade for the quarterback. However, any trade involving the quarterback cannot be completed until March 14 at 3 p.m., which marks the first day of the new league year, though sources confirmed that a deal is in place to send the 33-year-old Pro Bowler to Washington.


According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Redskins have given Smith a new four-year contract extension, rather than risking losing him to free agency after his contract expires next offseason.

Washington has reportedly also sent a third-round pick in compensation to Kansas City, according to Schefter.

For what it's worth, Swearinger has since cooled his stance on the trade, welcoming the veteran quarterback to Washington.
