Instead, La Canfora says that Cravens time in Washington “could be over.”
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a source with knowledge of the situation, reports that Redskins S Su’a Cravens could still report to the team on Tuesday, despite being placed on the reserve/left squad list Monday.
According to Florio, Washington was aware that Cravens was coming back on Tuesday, but still elected to place him on the exempt list, which will ultimately cost him the remainder of the 2017 season.
The Redskins reportedly made this move without informing Cravens of their plans until after it was already made.
The Washington Redskins announced Monday that they’ve placed S Su’a Cravens on the Reserve/Left Squad list.
Here’s the statement released by the 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.”
This is a somewhat surprising move, considering that a report from this past weekend said that Cravens could return to the team at some point in the near future.
Cravens previously told some Redskins that he was planning to retire from the NFL, but the team tried to convince him to change his mind. It’s worth mentioning that Cravens is reportedly dealing with a health issue.
Cravens, 22, is a former second-round pick of the Redskins back in 2016. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $4.430 million contract that included $2.523 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $450,000 and $651,408 over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2016, Cravens appeared in 11 games for the Redskins and recorded 34 tackles, one sack, an interception and five pass defenses. Cravens was limited to playing 294 total snaps last year.
