Deviating from the Washington Redskins for a moment because I am really pulling for LB Brian Banks to make the Atlanta Falcons roster. I’m hoping that in the end, he makes the practice squad at least.
If he does, it’ll be the feel good story of the 2013 season.
The first round of cuts are done and Brian Banks is still on the Falcons’ roster.
You might think that Tuesday’s deadline loomed large for a player trying to resume his football career after almost 10 years away from the game after being wrongfully convicted of rape while in high school, but Banks said that he wasn’t sweating a visit from the Turk. Banks said that he knew he had worked as hard as he could to make a good impression on Falcons coaches and was prepared for any outcome.
