Default Brian Banks

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Now that Brian Banks has been exonerated of a rape conviction that put him in prison for five years, the one-time prep football star has a message for NFL coaches: Give him a chance.

After Thursday's emotional court hearing during which Banks broke down in tears, the 26-year-old said he wants to pursue his interrupted dream of playing professional football.

Appearing Friday on NBC's "Today" show, Banks said he just wants a chance from an NFL team.

"I think that any team that gives me an opportunity will be really impressed with what I can do despite all of what I've been through these past 10 years," Banks said.


AP Photo/Nick UtBrian Banks broke into tears after hearing that his rape conviction was dismissed Thursday.


It was the plan he left outside a prison door when he pleaded no contest to a childhood friend's false accusation of rape in 2002, a claim she now has recanted.

What a horrible story. I hope some team gives him a chance.

Another great story from my city. Geeze what a horrid thing to do to a young man. Not only should they have to pay back 1.5 million, they should owe that young man 5 yrs worth of what an NFL salary would be for his position. Of course chances are I have to pay for it again. My friggin city is always getting sued. There was this church the city hall fought with, then church sued them, they took 10 million dollars from us, moved church to Los Alamitos and built this huge church. God Bless Long Beach.

The fact that family got 1.5 million bucks off of this poor kid and their daughters lie is just sick. It would be just a great story for some team to give this kid a chance to make the team.

Several NFL teams are willing to give Brian Banks a chance to fulfill his dream of playing pro football.

ESPN columnist Rick Reilly tells the story of Brian Banks, a wrongly convicted rapist who wants his long-desired shot at playing in the NFL. Story


Banks, who last week was exonerated of a rape conviction that put him in prison for five years, told ESPN columnist Rick Reilly that he'll work out with the Seattle Seahawks on June 7. The Washington Redskins, Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins also have called to talk to him about a tryout.

"I'll make 'em happy," Banks, who's been training non-stop since October, told Reilly on Tuesday. "After all I've been through these last 10 years, I can still do some things that will impress you."

Given what he went through and his attitude about it I can't see how anyone wouldn't want him here in camp.

It would be cool if the Broncos had him in for a visit. The kid has been to hell and back.

That and I would think he would have a fair chance to prove himself and make the roster

I watched him play, he was very good at Poly, everyone was after him. Reminds you of Lance Briggs.

Terrible story. Hopefully he can sue the family that collected the 1.5 million.

Honestly though a 26-year-old with no college game experience has virtually a 0 percent chance of making an NFL roster. Does he have any college eligibility left? If so, why doesn't he try to play for an FCS school for a couple of years, get an education and then see if he can get drafted. He would still be under 30.

They are saying around town they can't prosecute the girl because she was a minor. Can't prosecute as an adult because statute of limitations on false police reports and crimes in 5 yrs. Also just read in today's paper this b**** spent all the 1.5 million, is on welfare, and is delinquent on her child support payments.

The welfare state at work right here baby!

Too bad the NFLE isn't still around. It'd be perfect for this very situation.

People around Long Beach are pretty pissed off. One we are struggling to pay for our schools just like all cities in CA and the USA. This b**** takes 1.5 million from the system and gets away with it. On top of that this is how the whole thing went down.

She contacts the man on facebook and says i thought we could let bygones be bygones. I was immature then and hope we can be friends! lol. She didn't even apologize to him. At least she recanted but **** her. I hope she gets run out of Long Beach.

1.5 million? I thought the one article I read $750K. Whatever, not the point I know. I am wondering about his idiot/hack lawyer in the original case. he told him he'd get 40 years for rape? Who gets 40 years for Rape? Nobody gets 40 years for rape, unless maybe it's a pedophile type thing. in his case, there were no witnesses, no semen present, what the hell case could they have possibly built just on the word of one girl? Rape is a b**** and a half to convict on just the he said she said principle. I smell something odd and not just the his shake down. That school wanted this **** hushed up and that lawyer ought to lose his damned ability to practice law. Sheesh. that is just wow. It's hard enough to get people to believe a rape occurs. false accusations only make it harder for people who've actually been raped to ever come forward. People really suck sometimes.
