Aqib Talib Traded to the Patriots, as They Gamble on Suspended Corner to Help Leaky Secondary

Aqib Talib, the former first round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has been traded to the New England Patriots, no compensation details announced. You can be sure that it is minimal, though, since Talib is currently serving part of a four game suspension, and is a free agent at year’s end.

The Patriots, for their part, show they are willing to take a chance on a character risk. . . at the right price. We saw it last year with Albert Haynesworth. The Patriots hope to hit it bigger here. The secondary has been surrendering some big pass plays in recent weeks, so it is a need if he can get on the field.
