ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Secretary of the Navy hopes to see Keenan Reynolds immediately pursue a career in the NFL.

Reynolds was a record-setting quarterback with the Midshipmen before being selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the sixth round of the NFL draft Saturday.

There is a Department of Defense rule that states Reynolds is obligated to serve in the Navy for two years after graduating. But Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus said, “I’m confident that we can work something out for Keenan to do both - to serve his country and to play professional football.”

Mabus made the comment Thursday during an appearance on the Dan Patrick Show.

Mabus says the Naval Academy is checking the rules to see if Reynolds and serve his commitment and play football, too.

Reynolds is expected to get his first taste of NFL action Friday at the Ravens rookie camp.
