Report: Broncos in talks to trade for Su’a Cravens


Safety Su'a Cravens‘ return to the NFL may come in Denver.

Cravens applied for and received reinstatement to active status earlier this month after spending last season on the reserve/left squad list. Cravens walked away from Washington during the summer and revealed later in the year that he was dealing with post-concussion syndrome.

His departure didn’t set well with some teammates and word earlier this week was that Cravens is being shopped in a trade. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Denver has engaged in those talks and are the “most interested” in making a deal for the 2016 second-round pick at this point.

Denver had Darian Stewart and Justin Simmons as their starting safeties last year and both remain under contract for 2018. Cravens has played as a hybrid linebacker/safety in the past and could factor into the team’s plans at the former spot if Todd Davis leaves as a free agent.

    There is absolutely no way any team is trading a 2nd round pick for Cravens. They might trade for him but not that amount.

    I think you misunderstood the article, it was stating the player was a 2nd round draft pick in 2016, not that they were looking at trading a 2018+ 2nd round pick

  2. As the biggest Cravens fanboy in DC, neither side should know how to react to this news yet. Cravens will either be out of the league in two years, or a pro-bowler for the next ten. Virtually no middle ground here.

    The guy is as athletic as they come, and used to lead the team in heart, but a horrifying concussion just stole his love for the game two years ago. No way to know whether 2018 Su’a will be the next Troy Polamalu or just a shook 24 year old afraid of making contact. Good luck to him and his team regardless.
