Brian Banks will be going to Seahawks minicamp, but he isn’t letting it get in the way of his chances of landing with another team.
Banks committed to USC as a high school linebacker before his life was derailed by a conviction on rape charges that turned out to be fabricated, but he won’t fully commit to Pete Carroll this time around. Bruce Tollner, Banks’ agent, told the Associated Press that Banks will take the Seahawks up on their offer of an extended tryout during next week’s minicamp after Banks visits another team.
Banks will work out for the Chiefs on Tuesday and then head to Seattle for the final two days of Seahawks minicamp. The Seahawks took a look at Banks last week and extended him an invitation to join the team for minicamp.
The Chargers also put Banks through his paces at their facility, but declined to offer him a contract or second visit. The Redskins, Vikings and 49ers have also been mentioned as teams interested in seeing if Banks can write the happily ever after to a fairy tale wearing their uniform.
