LS Joe Cardona May Miss Significant Time Due To Navy Obligations

Patriots long-snapper Joe Cardona may miss significant time due to his Navy commitments, something the Patriots knew could be an issue when they drafted him.

Patriots long-snapper Joe Cardona may have to miss 2016 and beyond because of his Naval duties, but the Patriots will have a plan to deal with the potential loss. Cardona is one of the best long-snappers in the NFL already, so from a talent perspective, this hurts New England. Cardona is not bitter in the slightest, in fact he seems very excited to do what he considers himself born to do.

Here is what Cardona had to say on Twitter:

The Patriots are lucky to have a person of this caliber in their organization.

Thank you Joe Cardona, not many could do what you do.
