    The story of Brian Banks' attempted return to football was one of the more fascinating subplots of the 2012 offseason. Exonerated after being wrongly imprisoned for five years, Banks wound up making a whirlwind tour that included visits with the Seattle Seahawks, San Diego Chargers and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno".

    Banks never earned a roster spot, but he continued to work out in an effort to get all the way back into "football shape."

    His journey suddenly took a huge step forward Wednesday. Fox Sports insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer reported that the Atlanta Falcons have signed Banks.

    "I started working with (Brian Banks) 2 weeks after he was exonerated, promised him we wouldn't stop until someone signed him. He worked so hard for this!!!" Glazer wrote on Twitter.

    "Jay, I'm on Cloud 10, I passed Cloud 9," Banks told Glazer.
