Redskins fans were already upset with how Washington's season turned out on Monday.

And many became even more upset after D.J. Swearinger told 106.7 The Fan's Grant Paulsen and Pete Medhurst he was released by head coach Jay Gruden.

One notable Redskin fan was former NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Earnhardt made reference to Washington's signing of troubled linebacker Reuben Foster, who has been accused of multiple incidents of domestic violence

He also retweeted his own tweet from January 2018, writing, "Nothing dull about being a Redskins fan." 

However, the decision to release Swearinger after his critical comments of defensive coordinator Greg Manusky makes some sense.
