Brandon Banks Had An A’ight Morning

Posted by Brian Tinsman on July 29, 2011 – 11:54 am

Receiver/returner Brandon Banks figures to be the favorite at returner going into camp, but he got a lot of looks at wide receiver today too.

By his own casual assessment, “Eh, I did a’ight. On routes, coming in and out of routes.  I’m just out there trying to catch that ball and get my timing down with John Beck.”

Banks looked good on deep balls, but made his cuts a little gingerly during passing drills.  Banks said he felt good, but going to be careful about his routes for a while.

“Y’know, I just came out of knee surgery so I’m really trying to get my leg back strong,” he said.

In return drills, Banks tracked the ball well and showed flashes of his familiar speed.  His strategy for returns was relatively simple: “Oh yeah, as long as I catch every return I’m good.”

I guess that would be the most important part.

Banks reiterated that he was pleased with his first showing of the year.  “I feel good about it, the first day. Hopefully I’ll do better tomorrow.”

    So glad to read this. When the whole stabbing thing went down I had those horrible #21 flashbacks. Can’t wait to see Banks on the field this year. Shockingly, I can’t wait to see this whole Beck-led team.

    I, like everyone else really like Banks. I just hope he doesn’t get cut like Marko Mitchell did. Banks is a great return guy but so is Terrence Austin. There are a lot of receivers in camp this year. Hopefully Banks will show them he can be just as productive at receiver as he is as a return man.
