Former Houston Texans Safety D.J. Swearinger, who was cut by the team on Monday, has found himself a new home. The former 2013 second round pick was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Tuesday.
The Bucs have struggled with a void at the safety position since they chose to trade away Dashon Goldson and a seventh round pick to the Redskins in exchange for a sixth rounder in early April. The team is hoping that Swearinger can make an immediate impact for them on the defensive side of things.
Swearinger has played in 32 games in his career within the NFL, and has started 22 of those games while playing for the Houston Texans.
