Aqib Talib: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Updating a prior report, Talib was not arrested Sunday morning in Dallas, Patrick Smyth of the Denver Broncos reports.

Following a report that Talib was arrested early Sunday morning in Dallas for public intoxication, ABC7 Denver later relayed that the Dallas Police Department issued a correction clarifying that it was the cornerback's brother, Yaqub Talib, who was involved in the reported incident.

Talib (knee) signed a six-year, $57 million deal with Denver on Tuesday night, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Talib was one of the top remaining defensive backs left in free agency, and his deal with the Broncos features $26 million in guaranteed money. Talib resurrected his career with the Patriots in 2013, accumulating 41 combined tackles, 13 passes defended and four interceptions. The Broncos also signed free agent safety T.J. Ward on Tuesday, showing that they are placing the highest priority on mending their defensive back woes. This combination should more than make up for the loss of Champ Bailey and help them improve a pass defense that was ranked 27th in the NFL in 2013 with 254 yards allowed per game.
Talib did not suffer any structural damage in his knee when he was forced out of this past Sunday's AFC championship game following a hit delivered by Denver's Wes Welker, masslive.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Talib will not participate in the Pro Bowl as a result of the injury, but fortunately it appears as though he avoided a long-term issue. Talib is slated to become an unrestricted free agent in March and re-signing the cornerback -- a key cog in the team's 2013 defensive corps -- figures to be an offseason priority for the Patriots.
Talib (knee) is among 13 Patriots slated to hit free agency on Mar. 11, ESPN.com reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Overall, Talib recorded 40 tackles and two picks in 10 games this past season, but more importantly he helped solidify a leaky Patriots' secondary with his capable play at left cornerback, where he remains the team's starter. His tackle totals aren't especially IDP-friendly, but Talib can help out those in deeper formats if he regains some of the ball-hawking prowess he displayed earlier in his career with the Bucs, a reasonable expectation while playing his first full season for New England.

2012

Talib is coming off a season in which he had 34 tackles (31 solo), two interceptions (both returned for touchdowns), and 11 passes defensed in 13 games played. It was a bit of down year for the CB, as he flashed more playmaking ability in previous years. That being said he will still start at CB in 2012 for the Bucs and he may able to return to a higher-tackle, higher-interception player.

2011

Talib has the talent to be a Pro-Bowl corner, but his constant off the field problems could cost him his career someday. For now, Talib should be back in 2011 starting at cornerback opposite Rhonde Barber. He may miss some games due to suspension in 2011, due to being charged with assault with a deadly weapon over the summer. As long as Talib is on the field he will surely get his share of interceptions, fumble recoveries, and tackles as he is a physical ball-hawk that is worthy of a pickup in IDP leagues that require a corner.

2010

Talib had a solid first season as a starting corner in 2009 as he had 64 tackles and tied for the team lead with five interceptions in 15 games played. As long as he can keep out of trouble he has the talent to be one of the better corners in the league.

2009

Talib will take over for the departed Phillip Buchanon as the starting cornerback opposite Rhonde Barber. Talib clearly has the talent to be a starting cornerback in the NFL but he needs to stay out of trouble off the field, which has been a problem for him.

2008

First-round draft pick in 2008; will compete for starting left cornerback role, could also return kicks.
