Five Saints who could be cut before they take a snap in 2020
Number One: DJ Swearinger
DJ Swearinger is a safety that has bounced around the NFL quite a bit since he was drafted in the second round in 2013.
Swearinger has spent time with the Texans, Buccaneers, Cardinals, Redskins, Raiders, and the Saints throughout his career and has carried a reputation of being a hard-hitting safety who makes receivers pay for coming across the middle of the field.
Although he is a talented safety, it will be hard for him to make the Saints’ final roster considering the significant talent the team already has at the position.
The Saints currently have seven other safeties on the roster including guys like Marcus Williams, Malcolm Jenkins, CJ Gardner-Johnson, and Saquan Hampton who the Saints would likely favor over the 28-year-old Swearinger.
Although Swearinger is talented, he isn’t necessarily a star in the New Orleans secondary that is already loaded with talent.
The only time Swearinger would see significant playing time would be when he plays on special teams, but the Saints already have plenty of guys who can do that. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Swearinger get cut before the start of the 2020 regular season.
