Logic: The practice squad is where you put players who will be good in a year. When they are in better shape. And more prepared. Pete didn't do that.
yes. Players that have also been playing football for the past several years.
Not sitting in a prison cell.
Yeah, well how much time, effort and money are you going to invest in a 27 year old guy who never even played a down of college football? The odds are stacked against him becoming anything more than training camp fodder. Feel good story though it may be, I'd rather our FO and coaching staff make the investment in young guys with potential and a future. Banks' potential should have been realized 2 years ago and by the time he actually gets
enough experience to take advantage of whatever potential he has left, he'll be 30+ y/o. No, unfortunately for him, I believe the absolute pinacle of what he can aspire to be in the NFL at this point is training camp fodder.
Sorry Mr. Banks, but life served you a really, really, reeealy
shitty hand. My heart bleeds for you, it really does, but the NFL is not a charity. If you are serious about wanting to play professional football sometime before your physically unable to do so, you'd best head north and try to play in the CFL.
