So what happened with DJ?

What was the deal with DJ Swearinger? Was it just a personality clash with the coach? Did he have some heat with teammates?

I haven't been listening to talk radio very much lately.

Apart from the fact that he basically sucks, I've read he was not willing to play special teams and they were not thrilled with his "attitude" and influence on Clowney. Not sure how credible that is or if it was just the fact they weren't pleased with his on-field performance. Probably a bit of both.

Oh well, I won't really miss him. He hits hard and occasionally makes a big play, but otherwise he is pretty bad.

Ouch! Yeah, that doesn't sound like it's going to fly on a BOB team.

I know he was not popular in the locker room either. Read: he thought he was better than Watt.

Ha! Confidence is great but that's just delusional.

Yeah...that's pretty absurd.
