While the dust continues to settle following the late-night announcement of the imminent deal to swap Kendall Fuller to Kansas City in exchange for Alex Smith, one of the Redskins’ leaders wants his displeasure heard. Defensive captain D.J. Swearinger took to Twitter to unleash a string of tweets in reaction to the move.

And the deleted ones...

While the deal has yet to be formally announced and will not become official until after the new league year begins on March 14, Swearinger’s initial reactions are notable given his stature on the team.

    Twitter is the worst and Swearinger’s reaction is out of line as a team leader to use it this way.
