NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the team informed the safety he'll no longer be a member of the Texans, according to a source informed of the situation. Several media outlets later reported in the day the team cut ties with him.
Swearinger posted his goodbye to Houston on his Instagram page:
Swearinger started 22 games over his first two seasons, struggling mightily. Pro Football Focus ranked him their No. 78 safety out of 87 eligible in 2014 and 71 out of 86 in 2013.
Swearinger was selected in the second round of the 2013 draft. His departure leaves DeAndre Hopkins as the only productive player from that class remaining in Houston.
