After spending sixty-two months in prison after being falsely accused of sexual assault, Brian Banks was released from jail in May of 2012. The former high school stand out, spent last year with the Atlanta Falcons after working out for several teams including the Seattle Seahawks.
Today, Banks announced via Twitter that he would be taking a front office position with the NFL offices in New York City.

Banks will be taking a manager position in the football operations department and will assist in the officiating department during game days.
After spending over five years in jail and potentially wasting all of his talent, it is nice to see Banks is getting another shot at a career within the NFL, even if it is with the front office. Hopefully, Banks can find success with the league offices.
