After serving five years in prison for a crime he did not commit, LB Brian Banks has signed a one-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons. Banks was a star middle linebacker in high school and verbally committed to playing football at USC. Banks didn't get the opportunity to play in college, due to his arrest. Since he was released from jail, Banks has refined his physical ability by working out with Jay Glazer. There is a chance Banks could make the 53 man roster, but Mike Florio believes the former USC recruit will most likely end up on the practice squad.
