Despite several tryouts and minicamp invitations, linebacker Brian Banks has yet to receive a contract offer.
But that doesn’t mean he’s giving up on his dream of playing NFL football.
FOX’s Jay Glazer said on Wednesday’s PFT Live that Banks has been working out twice per day with Glazer’s MMA operation, in the hopes of getting in to top shape and eventually getting an NFL opportunity.
Glazer believes Banks would be a great addition to an NFL team’s practice squad, given his unique life experiences and positive outlook. Banks, who planned to play at USC before a conviction based on false rape allegations put him behind bars, was exonerated earlier this year, after the victim recanted.
At some point, Banks may have to consider the UFL. Regardless, he’s working hard to get a shot, and we hope that he will.
