Football hopeful going all out to try out for the team

- A job in the NFL would be a dream come true for many and one man is actually standing by to make it happen.

Former University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth wide receiver Abiola Aborishade has been standing outside Gillette Stadium in Foxboro for a month, holding a sign as his resume, hoping for a tryout with the New England Patriots.

FOX Sports reports Aborishade took up his post on April 21 and since then, has stood there nearly every day since for hours before and after shifts at his day job, working for Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
