The Redskins released D.J. Swearinger on Monday, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. 

The release comes two days after Swearinger voiced very critical comments of defensive coordinator Greg Manusky following a tough loss in Tennessee over the weekend. 

"I probably watch more film than the coaches," Swearinger said Saturday. 

This is not the first time Swearinger has spoken out after a loss, but they were his most pointed comments. 

Head coach Jay Gruden said previously this season that he talked with Swearinger about not voicing his concerns publicly, though clearly these comments did just that. 

Going into the Redskins Week 17 matchup against the Eagles, the Redskins will now be without Swearinger and Montae Nicholson, the two starting safeties when the 2018 season began. 

More analysis to come as this story develops.
