Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is sticking around through the 2021 season after signing a three-year contract extension.

Carroll said he was first approached about an extension last week and finished the deal on Monday. The contract will take him through his 70th birthday in September 2021.

Carroll is in his ninth season as Seattle's coach and clinched his seventh playoff berth with Sunday's victory over Kansas City. He is 97-59-1 overall in his tenure and led Seattle to a pair of Super Bowl appearances, winning the franchise's only championship after the 2013 season.

 

Swearinger cut 

The Washington Redskins released safety D.J. Swearinger on Monday.

Swearinger early in the day told a radio station in Washington, D.C., he'd been cut with one game remaining in the regular season. He said on 106.7 The Fan that Redskins coach Jay Gruden did not give him an explanation for the move.

"I don't regret nothing, because I know I gave 100 percent effort from my heart," Swearinger said.

The Redskins later Monday sent out a release with the transaction.

Swearinger has been critical of the team, which has dealt with significant injuries to the offensive line and quarterback. 

 

Titans moves

The Tennessee Titans have placed four-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Jurrell Casey on injured reserve, their second defensive starter lost for the season in as many weeks.

They also signed quarterback Austin Davis with Marcus Mariota recovering from his second stinger this season affecting his throwing arm. Davis spent two weeks on the Titans' active roster earlier this season.
