The 27-year-old bounced around last season, playing with three different teams overall. He finished the season with the Bears and has now re-upped with them for one more season. The recent signing of Prince Amukamara likely negates any chance Banks had at landing a starting role in the secondary. However, he could add value as a special teamer.
Banks (ankle) was listed as a full participant in Thursday's practice.
Banks hasn't played in weeks since injuring his ankle. However, after logging a limited practice session Wednesday, Banks' complete participation Thursday suggests he'll be ready to make his debut as a member of the Chicago Bears on Saturday against the Redskins.
Banks (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Banks was a limited participant at practice throughout the week, and appears to be trending toward a true game-time decision Sunday. Deiondre' Hall and Sherrick McManis could see extra work in the secondary if Banks is unable to play and help provide depth.
