This is an incredible story and I hope he gets a chance to play in the NFL. I feel horrible for him.



The Seattle Seahawks have confirmed they will hold a tryout for former high school football star Brian Banks, who was exonerated in a California rape case in which he was falsely accused.

Hopefully he gets a fair shot but not many people make it to the nfl with no college experience. Plus he has to knock off 10 years of rust. I doubt he has a chance but it would be a good story. Hell Miami should sign him just so they have a good story line for Hard Knocks.

I think he'll get signed to a team's practice squad and maybe he'll be able to knock off that rust and make it to the NFL.

Best of luck to him. Last I heard, a few other teams were bringing him in as well.

For anyone interested, Rick Reilly had a good article about him this week.
