Su'a Cravens: I need to follow 'what makes me happy'

Redskins change Su'a Cravens' mind about retiring for now

Washington Redskins safety Su'a Cravens had to be talked out of retiring on Sunday during a meeting with team president Bruce Allen, and his future with the team is in doubt.

Cravens played in 11 games previous year, his rookie season, starting three of them.

Cravens, a 2016 second-round pick out of USC, totaled 34 tackles, one interception, one sack and five passes defensed in his rookie season, as the Redskins finished third in the NFC East with an 8-7-1 record. Washington officials want to help him through his issues rather than have him walk away from the game, which would make him one of the youngest National Football League players to date to retire.

According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Cravens was not in attendance at Redskins practice on Sunday morning as the team gears up for the start of the regular season in exactly one week.

Chelsea signs Torino defender Zappacosta
The £23m signing has agreed on a 4-year-deal after playing 58 games in the Serie A over 2 seasons for the Italian club. Davide Zappacosta has completed his £23 million move to Chelsea from Torino , penning a four-year contract.

Fellow Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger told ESPN the news of Cravens' possible retirement was "shocking". Compton told him, "I haven't felt it from you. If you really love it you'll stick to it". "I think I need to follow what makes me happy, get my mental right, my well-being right and my family right". We're here to support him. "Whatever he's dealing with I'm praying for him". "Hopefully he'll deal with what he has to deal with and be back out here". Washington's staff was able to meet with him and was able to talk him into continuing to play.

Football has always been a risky sport, but recent research has provided insight into how life-threatening the game can be. "Everything. If you're not ready to come back and play and give it your all, and your heart isn't in it, then you'll seriously go out there and get hurt".

Gruden was originally supposed to speak with reporters after practice Sunday, but that news conference was canceled and moved until Tuesday.

"He's kind of been a mainstay here and he kind of keeps the boat from sinking from time to time", said Redskins head coach Jay Gruden during training camp.
