Eric Kettani receives hate mail over NFL career

Washington Redskins’ fullback Eric Kettani was highly praised by his teammates during a ceremony in early June after he was promoted to the rank of lieutenant in the U.S. Navy. But not everyone is happy with Kettani’s double-duty as NFL player and Navy Reserve officer.

In an interview with the NFL Network, Kettani says he’s received hate mail over his NFL career, ESPN reports.

“Go back to the military and what you signed up for,” Kettani says, recounting the contents of some of the letters he’s received.

Under a special agreement with the Navy, Kettani can work for seven years in public affairs while making the NFL roster.
