Brian Banks Headed To Kansas City For Workout

Brian Banks will reportedly workout for Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel and his staff next week as the linebacker continues to visit with various NFL teams around the league. Banks reportedly has an invite from Seahawks coach Pete Carrill to take part in the team's upcoming minicamp.

Banks was reportedly in San Diego on Friday for a tryout with the Chargers but left without a contract offer. He is also rumored to have workouts set up with Washington, Minnesota and San Francisco.

Since having his rape conviction overturned after serving five years in prison, Banks has sat out on realizing his NFL dream. With that turn of events, Banks is thankful for the opportunity that has been presented before him.

"Two weeks ago, I was sitting at home, just being hopeful that I could secure my freedom. Now, I've had a flight to Seattle. I've been out here in San Diego. I had a chance to work out with coach (Norv) Turner. These opportunities are something I'll cherish for the rest of my life."
