Washington Redskins safety Su'a Cravens told some within the organization this weekend that he is planning to retire, but a meeting with the team's coaches and executives has changed his mind for now, according to league sources.

Defensive coordinator Joe Barry started Cravens as an inside linebacker his rookie year, believing that his athleticism would serve the team well in pass coverage against running backs and tight ends.

Should Cravens decide to walk away from football, he would not be the first to retire at a young age - but he might be the youngest NFL player to do so.

The situation involving Washington Redskins safety Su'a Cravens has taken another turn. This isn't first time he's considered retirement, I'm told. The money and lifestyle of a professional football player is clearly enticing, but credit Cravens for considering his life over a lavish living. "So every chance I get to talk to him, I talk to him". "He's got to handle what he needs to handle, whether it's mental, whether it's family".

The move occurred the day after officials trimmed the roster to 53 players, so the move - and its timing - cost another player a chance to make the team. We're here to support him.

"It's shocking, but it is what it is", Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger said. "That's tough. I'm not in those shoes, so I can't speak on him, so whatever he's dealing with I'm praying for him and hopefully he'll be back". He added that you never know if a player loves the game until he faces adversity.?

"If it's family issues, personal issues, whatever he's dealing with, I'm supportive".

Football has always been a unsafe sport, but recent research has provided insight into how life-threatening the game can be.

As Gruden mentioned, Hall remains a valuable mentor for the defensive backs group, in particular guiding seventh-round draft pick and cornerback Joshua Holsey, who made a strong impression throughout camp and preseason to make the team as the backup nickel corner.
