Abiola Aborishade, a former standout wide receiver at Division III UMass Dartmouth, has been standing outside Gillette Stadium for weeks hoping to convince the New England Patriots to give him a tryout.

While he has yet to land one, Aborishade's efforts haven't gone unnoticed.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown threw his support behind Aborishade on Saturday, advising the Patriots to give him a chance.

Brown was drafted in the sixth round, so he knows firsthand what it's like to be passed over by NFL teams.
