Banks was invited to Seahawks minicamp on a tryout basis next week and now the San Francisco 49ers are also in the mix, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, but it's unclear if he'll be there considering how he keeps working out for other teams including the Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs were were also reported to be interested.
Then we listen to Banks talk and we are no longer cynical. He said the tryout for Seattle was the best day of his life other than when his innocence was declared. And it's not like he can't play any football.
The Seattle Times notes that the prospective linebacker ran under a 4.7-second 40-yard dash in Seattle. That's not blazing, but it's not bad at all.
Maybe, just maybe, this crazy story will continue into training camp.
