    A guy who has just been working out tough for about a month running faster than 9 other LBs at this year's combine? I'm rooting for this guy big time. I like the young guys we've brought in, but I hope someone gives him an opportunity to really get into a camp and compete.

    I'm cheering for him, but the odds are very long here.
    He hasn't played football in years, he has no experience except at high school, etc

    His shot of making a team this year is probably zero...... I think the only way he has a shot in the league is having a team invest in him by stashing him on the Practice Squad for the season and allowing him to truly work out, get film work and meetings in, and get better with his technique. Not even Jordan was Jordan when he tried to come back and play basketball the year baseball went on strike.

    Is is a long shot? Absolutely! But it would be a great story to see him overcome what he has, and be able to make a 53 man roster in a year or so.

    You can't leave people hanging that way. At least a sample:

    Background on the rape conviction/overturn.

    http://californiainnocenceproject.org/read-their-stories/brian-banks

    *****************************

    link

    And what's going to happen to Gibson?...........NOTHING!! Turns out she’s broke and on welfare, having blown the entire monies she took in on cars, big screen TVs and the like. She has two kids with two different fathers, and was ordered to pay child support (perhaps her mother was taking care of them), but has been let off the hook. She’s a failure and in her position from very poor choices, but the state has decided not to prosecute her for either lying about the rape (and having Banks imprisoned and almost labelled forever a sex offender) or failure to pay child support.

    Where's the justice?

    I think she needs to spend 5 years in prison.
