Chargers pass on Banks; Chiefs up next
By Bill Williamson
It doesn’t appear the San Diego Chargers will pursue linebacker Brian Banks. However, the Kansas City Chiefs appear set to take a look at him.
U-T San Diego reports that San Diego coach Norv Turner said the team doesn’t plan to invite Banks back after his Friday workout. The paper adds that Banks will soon work out with the Chiefs.
Banks worked out for the Seahawks on Thursday, and the team invited him back for its upcoming minicamp. Banks was recently exonerated from a sexual assault charge on which he was convicted 10 years ago. He was 16 and prized USC recruit when he went to jail; he is now 26. Seattle coach Pete Carroll is the man who recruited him at USC.
