Redskins put Su'a Cravens on exempt/left team list after safety mulls retirement

Redskins put Su'a Cravens on exempt/left team list after safety mulls retirement

It was not immediately clear how the Redskins would designate Cravens, though he was not at practice on Sunday and Deshazor Everett is expected to start against the Eagles. He may be wondering if it's all worth it and has said multiple times football doesn't define him.

The Redskins took Cravens in the second round of last year's draft. "Some people can play this game if they (don't)", said Swearinger, who would have started at free safety next to Cravens. An anonymous former teammate of Cravens' told ESPN that the safety has lost his love for the game.

Cravens informed the other defensive backs in a group chat Saturday night that he was going to retire and then exited the session by saying: "peace out", a source said.

Cravens, 22, has dealt with various injuries during his rookie campaign and was sidelined with a concussion. "(Cravens has) got to handle what he needs to handle, whether it's mental, whether it's family. "Hopefully we'll be able to get him back at a later date, but if we don't have him back when we want to, at least he'll be in the room and still have a major influence on the team and the defense". If the ultra-talented Cravens does indeed retire, it would be a major blow for the Redskins.

Department of State calls "parity" even as they admit the response is proportionally much smaller than what Russia did. State Department issued a September 2 deadline for the Russian Consulate in San Francisco to close its doors.

Fellow Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger told ESPN the news of Cravens' possible retirement was "shocking".

His binary distinction between positive and negative suggests that fans, friends, family and/or teammates either understand and support his side (which has not been explained) or become the enemy.

Gruden was originally supposed to speak with reporters after practice Sunday, but that news conference was canceled and moved until Tuesday. "But over the long run you will get exposed if you don't love the game because through the ups and downs, times get tough. So everyday I'm constantly in my book, in the notes, you know, talking to guys, just trying to [have] conversations with coaches [and] coordinators".
