Su’a Cravens may not be going anywhere, contrary to reports that the Washington Redskins are shopping the talented safety. Coach Jay Gruden said Thursday he was surprised by the rumors and doesn’t expect the former second-round pick to be moved. The NFL Network reported Wednesday that the Redskins were in talks with the Denver Broncos about a potential trade. “We’re not trading him,” Gruden said. “I just saw that on the ticker. He’s still a member of this football team and we have every intention of seeing where he’s at. I’ll have to talk to him and see where he’s at mentally. Physically, I know he’s going to be in great shape. “The big thing is, is this something that he wants to do? He has to commit to it full time. He’s a good football player, there’s no doubt about it. He’s a great kid. I’m sure it will work out for him.” Cravens surprisingly announced his retirement in September due to personal and health-related reasons and was placed on the reserve/left squad list by the team. He hasn’t played a game since his rookie year in 2016. The 22-year-old has been cleared medically to return to the team and his agent said in December that Cravens had undergone “targeted treatment and rehabilitation” for “post-concussion syndrome.” Doug Williams, the Redskins senior vice president of player personnel, said Wednesday that the team hasn’t talked to Cravens.
