Former California high school football star Brian Banks wore a prison uniform for five-plus years, serving time for a rape he did not commit.
This fall, he'll be wearing a different uniform - for the Atlanta Falcons.
Ten months after a California judge tossed out his conviction, the 27-year-old, 6'2", 250-pound linebacker signed a deal 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.
His sweatshirt featured a California license plate reading "XONR8."
