Redskins safety Su'a Cravens talked out of retiring

06 September 2017

Cravens had arthroscopic surgery on his knee in early August, and though he hasn't yet returned to practice, he was expected to return to action before Week 1, and was projected as Washington's starting strong safety. He may be wondering if it's all worth it and has said multiple times football doesn't define him.

Defensive coordinator Joe Barry started Cravens as an inside linebacker his rookie year, believing that his athleticism would serve the team well in pass coverage against running backs and tight ends.

Redskins officials, when forming the 53-man roster on Saturday, went with five safeties (Cravens, Swearinger, Deshazor Everett, rookie Montae Nicholson and first-year pro Stefan McClure). Cravens had played in just one preseason game this year, Washington's opener against the Ravens. "(Cravens has) got to handle what he needs to handle, whether it's mental, whether it's family. "I'll try to talk to him later on, tell him I'm praying for him, but I'm going straight to the iPad and watching Philly". "We're here to support him", Swearinger said.

According to The Post's report, Cravens, in a group text message, informed the defensive backs of his decision to retire. Players were left to address the stunning news that Cravens had considered retirement. After the second injury, Cravens didn't report to Redskins Park for three days and didn't tell anyone why.

Gruden was originally supposed to speak with reporters after practice Sunday, but that news conference was canceled and moved until Tuesday. "If you really love it you'll stick to it".

"You never know what's in anyone's life, so you make sure that's fine first and foremost before you get back to your job", Redskins cornerback?
