Why the Broncos Deserve Su’a Cravens

first_img Brad James  Then-Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan put great trust in him, making him a starter. Then, one day, Kennison decided his heart wasn’t in the game. He retired, only to resurface with the bitter rival Kansas City Chiefs. He then played seven years in KC, amassing 5,230 receiving yards and 25 TD grabs.Yes, many Broncos fans were angry with him (I was among them) and for good reason. Thus, I can understand why Washington Redskins fans are angry with Cravens.Unlike the Kennison era, however, Cravens must absorb the Twitter vitriol he receives. Then again, NFL players are compensated handsomely for their troubles, so they might as well get a thick skin with their riches!I don’t understand why NFL players, or other athletes for that matter, give up on certain teams only to be “miraculously” galvanized when they are in a new environment.That’s just how the NFL works. I have covered sports for more than 20 years now and it’s how they go.If history is to repeat itself, you’ll have Cravens, who is a hybrid outside linebacker/strong safety ball out every week. The chip on the shoulder doesn’t have to be real, as long as it’s real to Cravens.The Broncos have the good fortune of having a player who will give them everything he has. In an offseason wherein GM John Elway has been lambasted by all, he procured a solid steal.A 5th rounder is more than worth it for Cravens if he displays what he did early in his career.The film is out there, you can see it yourselves but the Broncos got a winner and for a better price than the Dairy Queen 5 Buck Lunch.Incidentally, if I have one regret at Mid-Utah Radio, it’s that the two really good Dairy Queens, Beaver and Santaquin, require a special trip and you have to be in the area to make it worth your while.Nevertheless, like Cravens will prove to be for the Broncos, Dairy Queen is worth it! FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail*This is yet another Predominantly Orange offering, wherein I go back in Broncos history to explain why the Broncos “deserve” Su’a Cravens.I always succeed in taking a new spin on things and I’ll prove why the Broncos deserve strong safety Su’a Cravens.Almost 17 years ago to the date, April 5, 2001, the Broncos signed speedy wide receiver Eddie Kennison. The former Rams, Saints and Bears receiver/kick returner was valuable in many roles.
