The Arizona Cardinals released veteran safety D.J. Swearinger, according to multiple reports on Monday. Swearinger started all four games for Arizona this season, and he made eight tackles and recorded one QB hit in the Cardinals' 27-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Fifth-round pick Deionte Thompson will likely take over the starting role.

Swearinger, 28, was a second-round pick by the Texans in the 2013 draft and played for Houston for two seasons (2013-14). He played for Arizona during the 2015 and 2016 seasons and also had stints with Tampa Bay (2015) and Washington (2016-17). He was claimed off of waivers by the Cardinals last December after being cut by the Redskins. In 94 games (70 starts) over his seven-year career, Swearinger has recorded 386 tackles (297 solo) and 14 interceptions. He has 28 combined tackles and one pass defensed in four starts this season.

The Cardinals are 0-3-1 on the season and next face the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
