Navy cornerback Cameon Kinley had planned to try his hand in the NFL, until the Navy told him to cool his jets. Now, a U.S. Senator from the state where Kinley wants to play wants the Commander-in-Chief to override the order.
Via TheHill.com, Marco Rubio has sent a letter to President Biden requesting a waiver that would allow Kinley to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“In years past, the U.S. Department of Defense has issued many waivers to allow athletes to temporarily delay their service to our nation to pursue their professional sports dreams,” Rubio wrote, via TheHill.com. “Unfortunately, Mr. Kinley seems to be the exception, and without reason.”
