Junior Aumavae headed to the Dallas Cowboys

Posted: Tuesday, April 27, 2010

PALMER, Alaska - A former Palmer football standout has agreed to a three-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys.

Junior Aumavae will fly to Texas next week to join the team.

Aumavae is a 6-foot-2, 330-pound defensive tackle who garnered first-team all-conference honors for a pair of Division II programs during a stellar college football career. He was seen as an "under the radar" prospect by NFL scouts and a potential pick during the 2010 NFL Draft.

Aumavae was not selected during the NFL's three-day, seven-round selection ceremony. But just minutes after the final player was selected on Saturday, Aumavae's phone started to ring.

Dallas signed Aumavae as a priority rookie free agent. He will report to the team's rookie minicamp starting next week.
