As could almost be expected, wide receiver Gary Banks is taking the glass-half-full approach to being released Tuesday by the San Diego Chargers.

“When one door closes, others open,” Banks’ agent Bradley Hamilton told me late Tuesday night.

Hamilton said some teams have already reached out regarding Banks, but it didn’t sound like anything was imminent.

Banks’ release did not come as a surprise. Although the Chargers — particularly coach Norv Turner — loved Banks, he simply didn’t flash enough to give himself a legitimate chance. Turner told me that Banks didn’t do anything wrong, didn’t make mistakes and that his effort couldn’t be questioned.

That boils down to Banks simply not measuring up to the rest of the Chargers’ talent.
