Watch UDFA D.J. Foster Tell His Grandma He Signed with the Patriots

New, comments

You'll be rooting for him after you watch this video.

The New England Patriots are busy signing undrafted free agents (follow along with our tracker list here) and they're adding athletes to the offense.

Arizona State's D.J. Foster finished his college career with 2,355 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns, and 2,458 receiving yards and 14 receiving touchdowns. He was a 1,000+ yard rusher and picked up 1,769 yards from scrimmage in 2014 and posted over 500 receiving yards in each season. He gained over 1,000 yards from scrimmage in each of his first three years in college.

He's also been caught on camera in a heart-warming video telling his grandmother that he's signed with the Patriots.

Foster stands at 5'10, 193 lbs with a 4.46 40 yard dash, 6.75 second three cone, and 36 inch vertical. He's a total athlete who saw his production drop in his senior year after the coaching staff moved him away from the running back position. Some believe he can function as a Danny Woodhead-type of third down back.

I know that I'll be rooting for him.
