Banks, 26, is the former blue-chip prospect now attempting to pursue an NFL career after a judge threw out his conviction on rape and kidnapping charges once his accuser admitted she lied.
The Seahawks were forced to give up two scheduled OTAs (Wednesday and Thursday) and an additional offseason workout day (Friday) after the NFL found they engaged in live contact during a recent practice session, which violates the collective bargaining agreement between the league and players.
The Contra Costa Times reported that Banks is scheduled to appear on the "Tonight Show" before he flies to Seattle for his tryout. Banks had turned down other media requests to focus on football but apparently couldn't resist the charms of Jay Leno's chin.
UPDATE: Carroll told Seahawks.com on Wednesday that Banks is "a young man that has an opportunity to get a second chance at his dream." He said the team also would give Banks a legitimate evaluation: "I just think he deserves it, and we're going to give him a really good look and a serious look, and if he does well and we like him, we're going to try to get him to come to minicamp (next week)."
