A month ago, Brian Banks couldn't legally walk in a park.
On Friday afternoon, the exonerated linebacker worked out on one.
Banks tried out at Chargers Park in front of the team's coaching staff, sprinting through drills in hopes of earning an extended NFL opportunity.
Banks, 26, left Murphy Canyon without an invite back, but he said that's not a concern.
"Having an opportunity to walk on that field and have that workout, that's all I can ask for," Banks said. "The biggest thing for me ever has been to obtain and secure my freedom. I've already won. Regardless of what happens, I'm already rich. I'm already here."
In 2002, he was wrongfully accused of rape and kidnapping.
A former USC football recruit at Long Beach Poly High, Banks spent more than five years in prison and, as a registered sex offender, "was not allowed to go to a park, zoo, or anywhere children could be " upon release, his attorney Justin Brooks said.
