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