Date:

Bears released/waived CB Johnthan Banks, OL Taylor Boggs, WR Victor Cruz, DL Jaye Howard, DL John Jenkins, LB Kelvin Sheppard, LB Dan Skuta, DB B.W. Webb and DL C.J. Wilson.

Not to be confused with Breaking Bad actor Jonathan Banks. The 27-year-old recorded six tackles over 133 snaps for the Bears and Lions last season. He's appeared in 49 games for three teams since arriving as a second-round pick in 2013.

Bears re-signed CB Johnthan Banks.

The 43rd overall pick in the 2013 draft by Tampa Bay, Banks has bounced around the NFL the past two seasons. He'll compete for a roster spot in training camp.
Sat, Mar 11, 2017 04:02:00 PM

Bears claimed CB Johnthan Banks off waivers from the Lions.

This was the corresponding move when Jay Cutler (shoulder) was placed on I.R. A second-round bust in the 2013 draft, Banks has now spent time with the Bucs, Lions, and Bears this year. Banks will get a month-long look-see in Chicago. The 27-year-old's contract expires in March.

Lions released CB Johnthan Banks.

The Lions gave up a 2018 seventh-round pick for Banks at the trade deadline. He lasted just four weeks on their active roster. Banks is in danger of falling out of the league.
Sat, Dec 3, 2016 04:40:00 PM

Lions acquired CB Johnthan Banks from the Buccaneers for a seventh-round pick in 2018.

It had been reported Monday that the Buccaneers were waiving Banks but instead they were able to flip him for a seventh-round pick. Banks was a bust in Tampa Bay but maybe a change of scenery will do him some good. The Lions needed depth at corner with Darius Slay battling a hamstring injury.

Buccaneers waived CB Johnthan Banks.

A 2013 second-round bust, Banks played college ball across from Darius Slay at Mississippi State. While Slay has developed into one of the NFL's best and highest-paid corners, Banks showed a distinct lack of athleticism early in his pro career and couldn't get on the field under new DC Mike Smith. Banks' draft pedigree might warrant a waiver claim from a cornerback-desperate team, but he's an extreme long shot to pan out at this point.

Bucs declared RCB Johnthan Banks, S Major Wright, C Evan Smith, TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE Luke Stocker and WR Russell Shepard inactive for Week 4 against the Panthers.

Banks is week to week with a knee issue. Mike Jennings and Tim Jennings will be the Bucs' starting cornerbacks. The matchup couldn't possibly be juicier for Cam Newton. Brandon Myers is starting at tight end.

Bucs RCB Johnthan Banks exited Week 3 against the Texans with a knee injury.

He's being called doubtful to return. The Bucs will have to turn back to Alterraun Verner, who was benched this week, opposite Tim Jennings.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 01:29:00 PM

New Bucs coach Lovie Smith believes second-year LCB Johnthan Banks is "a great fit for our scheme."

The Bucs are bringing Cover 2 back to Tampa, and Banks fits the bill with plus size (6'2/185) and tackling skills. "We're going to need a couple of six-feet corners now, at least six-plus corners, of course that's Johnthan," said Smith. Banks will start opposite new RCB Alterraun Verner. Verner, Leonard Johnson, and Mike Jenkins are candidates to cover the slot in nickel packages.

Bucs CB Johnthan Banks exited Thursday night's Week 8 game against the Panthers with a hip injury, but later returned.

Banks was taken to the locker room before halftime with a minor hip injury. He was able to return in the second half and is back in the game opposite Darrelle Revis.
Thu, Oct 24, 2013 09:44:00 PM

Bucs CB Johnthan Banks (questionable, MRSA) has been cleared to play for Week 6 against the Eagles.

Banks is the latest Bucs player to contract an MRSA staph infection, but it's been determined that he doesn't pose any risk of transmission to other players. He'll start opposite Darrelle Revis, with Leonard Johnson covering the slot.
Sat, Oct 12, 2013 07:53:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports rookie CB Johnthan Banks is the latest Buccaneers player to contract an MRSA staph infection.

Kicker Lawrence Tynes and LG Carl Nicks were the first two Bucs to get infected, and Nicks recently experienced a recurrence of symptoms. Banks, a second-round rookie out of Mississippi State, is now obviously unlikely to play in Week 6 against Philadelphia. He has been Tampa Bay's starting corner opposite Darrelle Revis, with Leonard Johnson covering the slot. Banks recorded ten tackles and one interception over the Bucs' first four games.
Fri, Oct 11, 2013 02:00:00 PM

Second-round rookie Johnthan Banks is now penciled in as the Bucs' No. 2 corner following the trade of Eric Wright to the 49ers.

Banks may even be penned in; the Bucs have precious little depth behind both Banks and Darrelle Revis. 2010 third-rounder Myron Lewis, 2011 seventh-rounder Anthony Gaitor, and 2012 undrafted free agent Leonard Johnson will compete for nickel duties, though none of the three scare opposing offenses. The Bucs can ill afford to lose any corners to injury this preseason.
Fri, Jul 19, 2013 04:58:00 PM

Bucs agreed to terms with No. 43 overall pick CB Johnthan Banks on a four-year contract.

Banks (6-foot-2, 185) is a long, lean ballhawking corner, but he needs to get stronger. He probably would have gone higher in the draft if not for his slow (4.61) forty at the Combine. Banks will see plenty of snaps as a rookie, whether it be as the starting right corner or as the nickel back.
