Cravens, 22, had reportedly been mulling retirement following knee surgery in August.
“We sincerely hope that Su’a uses this time way from the club to reflect upon whether or not he’d like to resume his career in the National Football League in 2018,” the team said in a statement.
The 2016 second-round pick played in 11 games last year, racking up 34 combined tackles and one interception.
