In 2003, he signed as an undrafted rookie with the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League. He was waived after training camp on August 31, 2003. The Dolphins put him on waivers and he was assigned to the practice squad on November 11. On November 24, he was released by the Dolphins. Miami re-signed him on December 31, 2003 and he played in their last two games.
He was acquired by the Ottawa Renegades in a late season trade in 2004 after spending time on the Edmonton Eskimos' practice roster. Edmonton traded their first and second picks in the 2005 CFL Draft, along with Banks, to Ottawa in exchange for Clinton Wayne and Patrick Kabongo. In 2004, he had seven tackles in three games for Ottawa.
Korey had an outstanding 2005 season with a league-leading 10 interceptions, two touchdowns, 44 tackles, 12 pass knockdowns, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He was the Renegades' nominee for Most Outstanding Defensive Player and was named a 2005 CFL All-Star.
When the Renegades were suspended after the 2005 season, Banks was drafted in the first round, 6th overall, by the BC Lions in the 2006 Ottawa Renegades Dispersal Draft. Banks recorded a touchdown and 7 interceptions in his first season with the Lions in which he helped them win the 94th Grey Cup. He has since been named a CFL All-Star in 2006, 2009, and 2011 as well as a West Division All-Star from 2006-2011.
