The story of linebacker Brian Banks have been one of the more intriguing stories of the NFL offseason since everyone seems to love a redemption story. Banks has had several workouts with NFL clubs over the past few weeks, but hasn't really worked out in front of many head coaches and/or general managers. Banks most recently worked out for the San Francisco 49ers, but left without a contract offer according to Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee.
Banks is working his way back in football shape and will resume training in Orange County. He's now had workouts with the 49ers, Seahawks, Chargers and Chiefs. Other teams have shown interest, but with most coaches and general managers on vacation, Banks does not have any workouts lined up in the near future. Neither Jim Harbaugh nor Trent Baalke, for example, were on hand this week for Banks' 49ers tryout.
Banks may not make an NFL roster this season, but there has certainly been plenty of interest in the exonerated linebacker and some coaches have noted he's looked pretty good in his workouts.
