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

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

The Washington Redskins placed second-year safety Su'a Cravens on the exempt/left squad list Sunday. "That's tough. I'm not in those shoes, so I can't speak on him, so whatever he's dealing with I'm praying for him and hopefully he'll be back".

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.

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.

The organization's second-round pick in 2016 after a stellar career at Southern California, Cravens saw significant playing time as a reserve linebacker in his rookie season while missing five games with a concussion and an arm injury.

"Everybody has their own stresses in life and things like that", linebacker Will Compton said.

Everything Apple Might Announce at Its iPhone 8 Event
It is expected that the company will launch iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and the anniversary edition iPhone 8 at the event. "Let's meet at our place" is the greeting on Apple's invite to its fall event, which lands on September 12 this year.

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

The NFL insider reports that Cravens, a 22-year-old former USC star, had been telling those around him that he was going to retire. Either way my response is the same to both groups, I love yal (sic) and thank yal.

"Definitely. He's a great player, a great person", Foster said. "There's some volatile people in that defensive back room from time to time and he's a calming guy, if you can believe that". ESPN reported that Cravens informed a handful of teammates the prior day that he meant to notify the team of his retirement. You all will really get to know me.

"This game tests your wits in every form, every facet of your body, your mentals". He then had to undergo knee surgery back in August. Gruden did not address the media Sunday but will do so Tuesday. The money and lifestyle of a professional football player is clearly enticing, but credit Cravens for considering his life over a lavish living.
