    Default Skins Statement on Sua Cravens

    For Immediate Release
    September 18, 2017

    STATEMENT FROM THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS

    “Today the Redskins have officially placed Su’a Cravens on the Reserve/Left Squad list. In accordance with the NFL Constitution and Bylaws, Su’a will not be permitted to return to the club for the remainder of the 2017 NFL season, including the postseason. We sincerely hope that Su’a uses this time away from the club to reflect upon whether or not he’d like to resume his career in the National Football League in 2018.”

    Doesn't sound like it was a "major" and "personal" issue at the root of it.
    Otherwise, I'd expect the statement to be a little more sensitive.

    He's done. Period. As in forever. Thankfully it happened now before they cut a guy to make room for him, only to do this later.

    How long do we hold his rights? I just wondering if at what point he could sign with someone as a FA. I would like to see us trade him for something.

    The showed flashes of talent, but if heart and mind not into it then the talent is wasted

    It was questionable at his size and speed as a 'tweener' whether Cravens would have found a true role in the NFL as a full-time starter.

    He was too small to play linebacker and IMO not a natural fit at safety.

    At the time I was surprised that McCloughan knowing this team lacked depth at critical positions spend a high #2 pick on a player with this many question marks.

    Usually, that #2 pick is a player that projects to an NFL position and is expected to be a regular contributor at that spot his rookie season or soon thereafter.

    Oftentimes players taken in Round 2 on some boards and pre-draft predictions are picked as first rounders.

    In Cravens case it was the opposite as a lot of people had him as a 3rd round pick due to the uncertainty regarding where he would play in an NFL defense.

    I would have taken a DL, OG or LB at that spot who could have helped us in 2016 and beyond.

    I read by the designation yesterday we didn't give him 5 days notice the team was going to do this. Now the question is if says I want to come back will there be a dispute over him getting paid.

    This may prevent the team from going after a portion of his signing bonus.

    Saturday night he was present at his alma mater's game at the LA Coliseum.
    The next day, Sunday afternoon, his current team played at the exact same stadium, and he was not present for his current team.
    Speaks volumes.
