It's been a long time coming for Brian Banks, but finally he's getting his chance. Thanks to the Seattle Seahawks, he gets an opportunity to prove himself at this year's minicamp.
“I didn’t even know if I was going to have a number, a jersey…I didn’t know what to expect when I first got here,” Banks told Yahoo! Sports. “I got to my locker and saw there was a jersey in it — number 43. And I just wanted to take a picture of it just for myself. It’s just amazing to see my name on the back of it. It’s an honor to be taken serious and to be given this opportunity.”
Hopefully Banks will be able to get his shot and make the 53-man roster. If not, at least give him a chance and put him on the practice squad.
