On Tuesday the Kansas City Chiefs became the third team to work out Brian Banks, who has become known in the last month getting exonerated from rape and kidnapping charges after a woman confessed that she made the whole thing up.
Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel didn't sound like the Chiefs were ready to sign him but pointed all personnel questions to GM Scott Pioli.
"It went well considering he hasn't been playing football, but you can tell he has been working out. The football drills, he still remembers those things. I think the more workouts that he can have with different teams, the more it will come back to him. It was a decent workout."
"The game has changed quite a bit, and not having played, that's the biggest challenge - the level of competition, the skill of the guys that he's going against and then the change of the game itself being a more wide open game. You have terminology issues you have to deal with, conditioning you have to deal with. All of those things make it tougher for him to come back and just jump right in and make a big impact."
The best Banks can hope for is a training camp invite someplace. Between now and then that could give him some time to begin understanding a playbook and the type of defense that team plays. The odds are so stacked against Banks but I hope he overcomes them somehow.
