The Washington Redskins have begun trimming their roster ahead of two mandatory rounds of cuts this week. The team parted ways with Eric Kettani and Donté Stallworth.
Redskins fullback and U.S. Navy Lieutenant Eric Kettani talks about serving his country in this fitting 4th of July offering.
Eric Kettani is the only Navy Reserve officer in the NFL. He’s also earned the respect of head coach Mike Shanahan who says ‘it’s quite unusual to do what (Kettani) has done.’
Head coach Mike Shanahan and running backs coach Bobby Turner were on hand for Eric Kettani’s honorary pinning ceremony at Redskins Park in which he was promoted from his former rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade.
The Washington Redskins signed former Naval Academy fullback Eric Kettani to their practice squad in one of a bevy of moves on Tuesday.
