Su'a Cravens has been reinstated by the NFL.

Cravens sat out the 2017 season after telling Washington in early September that he was pondering retirement.

At the time of his announcement, Cravens declined to provide insight into why he opted to step away but he did indicate a potential return: "Hopefully, around this time next year I'll be back on that field."

Cravens has three years left on his original deal. If Washington released or traded him, it wouldn't be a big cap hit.
