Yay? Nay?

He was just cut by the Texans and although he's a bit of a hot head, he'd be helpful depth at one of our thinnest positions. A humbling cut followed by a second chance in a new city could be just the kick in the rear he needs. His contract situation is 100% doable.

personally I love the talent. A hard hitting SS that is excellent in run support. I love the intensity he plays with.

BUT... he is definitely a liability in coverage. We already have two guys that are ideal SS fits (Moore, Ishmael). We need someone that can be trusted to cover the deep third. Imo Swearinger could not make the transition to a ballhawking FS, and for that reason I'm out. (Mark Cuban Voice)

Seems like he's got some personality problems and definitely doesn't get along with our WR corps but Willy Mo appears to think he'd be a good addition to the team. Although yea we have two good strong safeties in Willy Mo and Kemal, need a better coverage option at FS (which is why we are trying to move ricardo allen there)

Just curious, but where did you get that Willy Mo thinks he would be a good addition?

And like you said, we already have two SS's, need that coverage guy at FS...

Usually I'm down to take risks on players but Swearinger seems like an idiot. I'd pass. Plus SS isn't a need.

SS isn't a 'need' but Safeties should be able to play both positions IMO; just like corners should be able to play on the left and right side, so should DEs, etc. if he's not capable of playing in both positions why would any team want to play him. He's playing in the NFL, he has the talent to play either, but is he willing to play either?

Well he was claimed by the Bucs so at this point it doesn't matter if he would fit in the Defense.

I saw the Bucs picked him up via wavers, so that's over. I like him as a player, but he's a SS only, and we've got WillyMo there. We need a FS opposed to another SS.
