Carl E. Banks (born August 29, 1962) is a former American football linebacker in the National Football League.

He played from 1984 to 1995 for the New York Giants, the Washington Redskins and the Cleveland Browns.


Carl Banks Career


Banks played high school football at Beecher High School, graduating in 1980. He made the Pro Bowl in 1987, had 39.5 career quarterback sacks, and was a member of the NFL's 1980's All-Decade Team. He played college football at Michigan State University and was the third overall pick in the 1984 NFL Draft. He was a member of the Giants teams that won Super Bowls XXI and XXV as well as a key part of the Big Blue Wrecking Crew. Banks was a standout in their Super Bowl XXI victory in which he recorded 14 total tackles, including ten solo tackles. In 1993, Banks entered a three-year contract to play for the Washington Redskins. He was released from the Redskins after the 1993 season and spent his final two years with the Cleveland Browns before retiring after the 1995 season.

Post-football career

After retiring from the NFL, Banks was a part-owner of the Arena Football League's New Jersey Red Dogs, along with ex-Giants Joe Morris and Harry Carson. He was Director of Player Development for the New York Jets in 1997. Currently, Banks can be heard as one of the voices of Sirius NFL Radio and WFAN. Starting in 2007, he became an analyst for the radio broadcasts of the New York Giants.

Breece Hall, the running back for the New York Jets, was outraged over his viral airport bust-up with a fan on Sunday night, claiming he was 'harassed' after refusing to sign an autograph. In a video obtained by TMZ Sports, the fan in question loses his cool with Hall, while Giants legend Carl Banks attempts to defuse the situation. According to reports, the Jets star, who had just touched down at Newark Airport after heading to Las Vegas for the Super Bowl, refused their request for an autograph before the row erupted.

Daniel Jones 'HAS to play better' says Giants legend Carl Banks, as two-time Super Bowl winner concedes the QB was affected by 'awful' offensive line play: 'It does impair your decision making', February 2, 2024
After being inking a four-year, $160 million contract last year, Giants legend Carl Banks has asked quarterback Daniel Jones to improve his results. Jones was praised for his contributions to the Giants in the 2022 season, but the Giants regressed the following season, throwing just two touchdowns to six interceptions before suffering a season-ending ACL tear in Week 9. Now, after a rocky 6-11 season, Banks is hopeful Big Blue will return to his best if Jones doesn't return to his best, though he did give a major warning about Jones' poor play last season.

Banks felt "completely disrespected," according to a tweet shared by long-time New York sports writer Gary Myers, who eventually resigned from office.
