NFL 2016: Naval Academy Grads Receive Opportunity

Two U.S. Naval Academy football players and 2016 graduates will receive an opportunity to pursue their NFL dreams this year.

Record-setting quarterback Keenan Reynolds and fullback Chris Swain hope to make an impact as rookies this season.

Reynolds, drafted in the sixth round by the Baltimore Ravens, is the NCAA's career leader in rushing touchdowns, scoring 88 TDs during his four-year career at Navy.

Swain was signed by the San Diego Chargers as a free agent after the 2016 NFL Draft. He rushed for 2,290 yards in his career, including 1,023 yards as a senior in 2015.

New England Patriots long snapper Joe Cardona looks to build on his rookie season. Cardona, who was drafted in 2015 by the Patriots, appeared in all 16 games last year as New England won the AFC East and advanced to the AFC Championship Game.
