Congressional Bill Throws Army Player’s NFL Dreams in Question

Over the last three years, athletes who graduated from service academies have been allowed to defer active-duty service for two years to pursue a career in professional sports. But, for players like Army linebacker Andre Carter II, that dream may no longer be a reality in the wake of a new congressional bill that could alter that privilege.

Carter, a talented senior tabbed as a potential first-round pick in the 2023 NFL draft, and other athletes in his position could no longer be allowed to delay active-duty if President Joe Biden signs the newly introduced amendment. Congressional leaders proposed in their annual defense authorization bill that allowing athletes to delay active-duty upon graduation should be considered “a breach of agreement to serve as an officer,” according to the Military Times. The bill was approved by Congress on Thursday, and could reach Biden as soon as next week.
