In what can be considered Redskins-adjacent news, former Redskins second round pick Su’a Cravens has been cut by the Denver Broncos. Cravens played just five games, registering 18 combined tackles for the Broncos in 2018 after he was traded to Denver for a fifth round pick, along with a swap of fourth and fifth round draft picks in the 2018 Draft. Washington ended up drafting Tim Settle with the pick they received from Denver in the exchange.

After his rookie year with the Redskins in 2016, his lone season in Washington, Cravens missed the 2017 season after telling the team he planned to retire, and was placed on the exempt/left squad list. After suffering a concussion and biceps injury during his rookie season, and had knee surgery. Though he was reinstated and eventually deemed medically cleared to play, Cravens left the Redskins departure from the Redskins was a public, messy one.

More recently, in a series of now-deleted Tweets Cravens has been outspoken about Trent Williams decision to not report to the Redskins this season due to the perception that the team’s medical staff did not properly handle his health situation, which Cravens also felt was a driving factor in his decision to seek a move from the team.

Though Cravens has not taken the field in burgundy and gold in over two years, his ouster from D.C. still remains a topic of conversation in fan circles. Now, with his release from his post-Washington destination, this chapter fully comes to a close for the comparative fate of the trade between the two teams.
