Bucs G.M. Mark Dominik has released a statement following cornerback Aqib Talib’s arrest Tuesday.
“We are deeply troubled by the serious charges filed against Aqib Talib. Due to current labor circumstances, we will withhold any further comment or action,” Dominik said.
The Bucs chose not to comment on Aqib Talib’s situation Monday, but decided to speak up after a warrant was issued for Talib’s arrest.
Many folks in Tampa were calling for Talib to be released before arrest warrants were issued for Talib and his mother. But Dominik can’t do anything about the situation for now because of the lockout.
The Bucs can’t call Talib to see how he’s doing. They can’t help him in any way.
Talib is on his own now, and will face a possible suspension from the league when the lockout ends. Considering Talib’s prior history, we suspect the the team will part ways with him when it’s allowed.
