Recap: Redskins Players Celebrate Father's Day


D.J. Swearinger Sr.'s life changed forever when his son was born. While the veteran safety is active in his son's life daily, Sunday created a special time.

In a recent feature on WUSA9, Darren Haynes talked to Swearinger about what it is like being a father and the influence he has on his son.

"I've got to teach him the wrongs from the rights," Swearinger said to Haynes. "He got to live and learn. I got to prepare him to be one of the best man in world history, to be a legend in whatever he chooses. Seeing him every day, you know, puts a smile on my face."

Swearinger was not the only player to spend his Father's Day in a positive way. Tight end Vernon Davis used the time off after minicamp to take a family vacation.

Davis spent his Father's Day enjoying the beach in the Bahamas with his wife and children.
