Joe Cardona swears in two members of the Navy for reenlistment

Joe Cardona's two worlds collided for a moment on Monday. 

The New England Patriots long snapper and US Navy Ensign, had the opportunity to swear in two members of the Navy for reenlistment following his team's joint practice with the Jacksonville Jaguars. 

In a video produced by the team, it shows both teams huddled around and looking on as Cardona -- who was dressed in his Navy uniform -- swore them in.

Cardona was drafted by the Patriots in the fifth round out of Navy in 2015 and has played in all 32 games for the New England after being granted permission by United States Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus to play in the league for last season. 

Last year, Cardona won his first Super Bowl in the NFL after New England rallied from a 25-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.
