Second-year Washington Redskins safety Su'a Cravens informed team president Bruce Allen on Sunday morning that he planned to retire, however, Allen convinced the 22-year-old to hold off on the decision, according to The Washington Post.
The 22-year-old Cravens, Washington's expected starter at strong safety, has been out since August 15 following knee surgery to fix a torn meniscus, but was expected to return to practice this week to prepare for the season opener September 10 against Philadelphia.
Cravens is one of the league's youngest players, a second-round pick a year ago, and he is struggling with his transition to the NFL. Washington officials want to help him through it rather than have him walk away from the game, which would make him one of the youngest National Football League players to date to retire.

"(Cravens has) 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.
His binary distinction between positive and negative suggests that fans, friends, family and/or teammates either understand and support his side (which has not been explained) or become the enemy. "If you really love it you'll stick to it". "Hopefully he'll deal with what he has to deal with and be back out here".
