Brian Banks getting another shot at his NFL dream


It's too soon to say if Brian Banks will achieve his dream of playing in the NFL, but he's at least getting his shot.

On the same day Banks had his workout with Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks, Banks has been invited to try out with the San Diego Chargers, according to UT-San Diego.

After his workout Thursday, Banks received an invitation to participate in the Seahawks' minicamp next week on a tryout basis.

Banks will discuss the offer with his agent before making a decision. In addition to the Seahawks and Chargers, Banks has been offered tryouts with the Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs.

Banks, 26, was a former blue-chip high school prospect who spent five years in prison after accepting a plea deal on one count of forcible rape. Following his release from prison, Banks had to register as a sex offender and wear an electronic tracking bracelet. Banks' conviction was overturned last month after his accuser admitted she lied.
