Former UH linebacker Aaron Brown today signed a four-year contract with the St. Louis Rams.
The Rams selected Brown in the seventh round of April’s NFL draft.
“We finally got it done,” said Brown, who will receive an undisclosed signing bonus.
Brown will earn a minimum of $2.01 million in base salary over the life of the contract, according to the NFL pay formula — $390,000 for a rookie in 2012, $465,000 the second year, $540,000 the third year, and $615,000 the fourth year.
He said the contract gives him more “obligation to perform and show them what I’ve got.”
Brown said he will return to Hawaii this month to train before the start of the Rams’ training camp on July 24.

Yesterday was the final day of the evaluation period in which coaches could visit high schools to meet with a prospect’s coaches, counselors and teachers.
The Warriors have made contact with every high school football program in the state. Yesterday, they visited Saint Louis School for the second time.
The recruiting process is year round, but to mark the end of this period, head coach Norm Chow took his assistant coaches to eat sushi last night.
The Warriors also have been thorough in their mainland recruiting. Jon Nielsen, a friend of the program, noted the Warriors made an offer to Gahr High safety Patrick Enewally (6-1, 191) yesterday. Nielsen is Gahr’s offensive coordinator.
