Seahawks Confirm That Brian Banks Will Be Back

Based on a workout last week, the Seahawks now confirm that linebacker Brian Banks will be back for a tryout at mini camp this week.

Workouts are closed to fans this week, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of people pulling for Brian Banks when he attends the final two days of Seattle’s minicamp on Wednesday and Thursday.

Banks is the former USC football recruit from Los Angeles who spent five years in prison on rape and kidnapping charges only to be exonerated 10 years later after the alleged victim recanted.

Banks participated in a solo audition for the Seahawks coaches last Thursday, and the 6-foot-2, 239-pound linebacker was impressive enough to be invited back to continue the tryout in the Seahawks’ minicamp.

According to Banks’ Agent Bruce Tollner, the former California prep star decided to take the Seahawks up on their offer after visiting the Kansas City Chiefs.

The minicamp is mandatory for all Seahawks’ veterans, and it marks the wrap up of Seattle’s offseason program . As a tryout player, Banks would participate in the drills, and the Seahawks will have the option of offering him a contract  depending on how he performs in the camp.
