Safety D.J. Swearinger Penalized For Trash Talk To Cam Newton

Washington safety D.J. Swearinger mouthed off with Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton after his final play of the day, a fourth-down incompletion that sailed out of bounds, much to the delight of Swearinger, who helped the team to a 23-17 win.

Washington Safety Comes At Cam, Gets Penalized

After a game that saw a typical flashy showing from the QB, the Redskins secondary had enough of Newton’s boasting. Swearinger let Newton hear it once the game was essentially over.

“I just told him I got the last laugh,” Swearinger answered when asked what went down between him and Newton. “We were talking trash all game. I told him I’d get the last laugh. I’m walking off, I’m just clapping my hands, I got the last laugh.”

Swearinger was given a penalty for the exchange. He let the officiating hear his displeasure too.

“He talks to me in my ear and tells me he’s gonna beat me up,” he said. “And I get the flag, man? Y’all tripping.” After a decent history of misdemeanors, Swearinger is one who feels he is a a target of the NFL and indicated that he feels singled out.

“I ain’t with none of that,” he said. “That’s bull—, you feel me? I shouldn’t get the penalty when the man’s talking in my ear. But that’s the label 36 got. But it’s cool, I’m cool with being a bad guy.”

On the other hand, Cam wasn’t so contentious with cornerback Josh NormanThey had an exchange after the Washington win.
