Exonerated Man Signed By The Falcons

This story of redemption dissipated out of the public eye rather quickly last year. But I reported about Brian Banks, a man who was exonerated after being falsely accused of rape, having a Kickstarter set up to produce a documentary about his life. I believe the documentary was going to be more about the circumstances surrounding his release and his life going forward.

Brian Banks, inside linebacker, had also tried out for the Seahawks last year. This will be his 2nd audition with the Falcons

Banks was invited to several camps over the summer last year. But nothing had panned out until now. Mike Smith, the Falcons head coach, has conversed personally with the  27 year old inside linebacker. An invite was extended for a second time by Smith and Falcons GM Tom Dimitroff. Banks will have the opportunity to show his improvements at the Falcons first offseason training April 22.
