Former University of Hawaii cornerback Rojesterman Farris II said he has reached agreement on a free-agent contract with the Atlanta Falcons.

Farris was not selected in today’s NFL Draft. But soon after the conclusion of the seven-round event, Farris said he received a multi-year offer from the Falcons.

“I just got a deal done with Atlanta,” Farris said.

Farris had other offers, but “I felt it best suited me. I know a staffer over there, Coach Mayur (Chaudhari). I think it will be a good fit, especially scheme-wise.”

Chaudhari was the special teams coordinator for the Rainbow Warriors in 2016 and 2017 before joining the Falcons’ staff.

Farris, who grew up in Florida, played in all 14 regular-season games in 2019. He amassed 54 tackles while serving as a shut-down corner.
