Redskins ship Su’a Cravens out to the Broncos for a draft pick

LOUDON COUNTY, Va. – Some will say it’s a marriage that ended too soon. After being drafted in the second round by the Redskins in 2016, and sitting out the entire 2017-18 season, Su’a Cravens and the ‘Skins are moving on from each other.

Cravens was traded to the Denver Broncos Wednesday for a 2018 fifth-round draft pick. The teams will also swap fourth and fifth-round picks.

“The move to trade Su’a is good for both organizations,” Redskins Senior Vice President of Player Personnel Doug Williams said. “We wish him well.”

In 2016, his rookie season, Cravens registered 23 tackles, five passes defended, a sack, and an interception in 11 games. According to Pro Football Focus, Cravens allowed zero touchdowns and a 73.1 passer rating when in coverage.

He missed games in ’16 due to concussions and lingering effects, and contemplated retirement before being placed on the Exempt/Left Squad list by Washington.
