"It's very possible."
A great day for Banks. The young man who heard a judge in Long Beach, Calif., throw out his kidnapping and rape conviction last week after looking at a videotape of his accuser admitting she lied.
After 10 years, he was suddenly a free and innocent man.
In his introductory Seahawks press conference Banks went on to say he needs to speak to his agent before accepting a tryout offer due to visits scheduled with other teams to determine best plan.
