Undrafted Free Agent A.J. Francis Has Best Birthday Ever

A.J. Francis was a four-year starter at defensive line for the Maryland Terrapins. He was not selected during the NFL draft last weekend, but he did sign a free-agent contract with the Miami Dolphins on Saturday. His day only got better from there.

That's Francis in the video above, waiting for his friends to finish what he calls "the worst rendition of Happy Birthday ever" before telling them that he has signed with the Dolphins. After everyone is done freaking out about that, Francis turns to his girlfriend and proposes to her, and his friends lose their shit all over again. It's hard to hear Francis in the video, but his friends provide all the commentary you need.


If there's one thing this year's NFL draft has taught us, it's that watching good things happen to former college players while their friends are around is a delightful experience.
