The Bucs decided to keep cornerback Aqib Talib on the team this year despite his latest and most serious run-in with the law.
He put together a good, but not great season. And now his season is over. The team placed Talib on injured reserve Monday with a hamstring injury, Raheem Morris revealed on his radio show via JoeBucsfan.com.
Talib is set for a trial in March of 2012 on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He’s under contract through 2012, but we wonder if Talib could be on his way out in Tampa.
Raheem Morris reportedly had to convince the front office to keep Talib last summer. Morris has taken some criticism for that move since, even from his own players.
If Morris is shown the door, perhaps Talib will be let go as well.
