Brian Banks Signs With Atlanta Falcons

Exonerated Brian Banks signs with Atlanta Falcons

Brian Banks wore the uniform of a prison inmate for more than five years, serving time for a rape he didn't commit.

This week, he learned he'll be wearing an Atlanta Falcons jersey.

Ten months after a California judge tossed out his conviction, the 27-year-old former high school football standout signed a deal Wednesday to play for the NFL team.

"Aside from getting my life back and my freedom back, this is the biggest accomplishment of my life," he told reporters during a conference call.

As he signed the contract, he wore a sweatshirt that showed a California license plate that said "XONR8."
