BANKS’ ROAD BACK WON’T END WITH FALCONS SPOT

0

ATLANTA, Georgia: Brian Banks’ bid to build an NFL career after serving five years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit hit a roadblock on Friday when he was cut by Atlanta. The free agent linebacker, signed on March 3 by the Falcons, was among 11 players released by the club on Friday as they trimmed their roster in advance of the 2013 season. The 28-year-old’s chances of making the team had appeared slim when he was played sparingly in the fourth quarter of the Falcons’ final pre-season game on Thursday, a 16-20 loss to Jacksonville. The Falcons could still try to sign him to their practice squad, although those places typically go to younger players the team wants to develop.
