 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Former Hawaii football player Rojesterman Farris II is mindful that the story does not end with the invitation to the Big Dance. "The dream didn't come true yet," said Farris, who signed with the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent. "I have to make the team. And I have to see the field. Then I can say my dream came true. Anything can happen. I'm staying optimistic. I'm staying ready. I'm making sure my body is ready to go." The past four UH seasons, Farris was reliable (playing in 53 of 55 games) and skilled (as a cover defender and in-box cornerback). After being bypassed in last week's NFL Draft, Farris was one of 20 undrafted free agents, including three cornerbacks, to commit to the Falcons.

Farris, who was born and reared in Florida, said he recently finalized the deal. "They e-mailed the papers, and then I scanned (the contract), and sent it back to them," said Farris, who experienced a deja vu moment. "Don't you have to sign the letter of intent (with UH). It kind of felt like that. This time, it was speaking about money." The standard contract for undrafted free agents is three years, with only the signing bonus guaranteed. According to the collective bargaining agreement, the 2020 base salary for a first-year player is $610,000. Farris did not disclose the amount of his signing bonus. - Honolulu Advertiser
