Banks offered minicamp tryout

Brian Banks was offered a tryout at the Seahawks’ minicamp next week after completing a workout for the team this morning.

Banks said he would talk with his representatives before making a decision whether to accept the invitation because he already had told other teams – including the Chiefs and Dolphins – that he also would work out for them.

“Right now, my plan is to go back (to Southern California) and speak with my agent to just get everything squared away and just take it from there,” Banks said after his workout and at the beginning of the 20-minute Q&A session with the media that followed it.

Banks spent 62 months in prison after being wrongly accused of rape. He was exonerated last month after his accuser admitted that she had lied.

“You guys just met a remarkable young man,” coach Pete Carroll said. “He is a great illustration of why people deserve a second chance.”
