Throughout two days of rookie minicamp practice players sought to make an impact on the Falcons' coaching staff, and it appears former Oregon running back Tony Brooks-James did just that.
Following their final practice on Saturday, the Falcons announced that they have signed Brooks-James. One of the standouts during practice, Brooks-James broke off several big runs, slipping through the hole and showcasing his exceptional speed in the open field.
The 5-foot-9, 190-pound running back had a versatile role during his college career at Oregon. Brooks-James carried the ball 283 times for 1,863 yards and 18 touchdowns; he also caught 40 passes for 392 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
