The Denver Broncos have finally struck a deal with the Washington Redskins for versatile safety/linebacker hybrid Su'a Cravens, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The Redskins saw Cravens play 11 games as a rookie and record 34 tackles with an interception. Denver and Washington flip fourth- and fifth-round picks this season as part of the trade.

Cravens was drafted by Washington in the second round in 2016 and still has three years left on his rookie contract.

If Cravens does feature for Denver, he'll give the Broncos a talented and versatile playmaker on what is an already stout defense.

By December, his agent issued a statement that said Cravens was allowed to resume football activities after recovering from post-concussion syndrome from a hit in Week 4 of the 2016 season.


He joins a Broncos defensive backfield that includes safeties Darian Stewart, Justin Simmons, Will Parks and Jamal Carter.

Poised to become a bigger contributor in Year 2, Cravens instead contemplated retirement and was reverted to the reserve/left squad list.

The Broncos have the fifth overall pick in the upcoming draft, which they could very well use to pick up another quarterback.
