Farley, 23, joins the Patriots as a non-drafted rookie free agent out of Williams College. Farley was a football tri-captain as a senior, playing offense, defensive and multiple special teams positions. For the past two seasons, he led the team in scoring with 53 points in 2001 and 48 points last season. In 2002, he led the team with four interceptions and finished fourth on the team with 35 tackles as a safety. Offensively, he finished fifth on the team in receptions and all-purpose yards. He also handled the team's punt and placekicking responsibilities and led the team in punt returns.
