Aqib Talib tweets about whether he’ll be traded

Denver cornerback Aqib Talib is aware of the reports that the Broncos would like to trade him, and he’s having a little fun with those reports.

Talib saw a tweet from the NFL that the Broncos could look to move him, and he asked, Who’s coming to get me?

He then asked who within the Broncos organization thinks he’s not the same player he used to be.

Being realistic, Talib is 32 years old, and the Broncos would save $11 million by trading or releasing him, so it’s easy to see why he’s on the market. In fact, although Talib was asking about a trade, a release seems like the more likely option. He can still play, but he can’t still play up to his big salary.

  1. If the Chiefs were truthful about calling every other team in the league about Peters and only getting interest from the Rams, who is going to be interested in an older version of Peters that has had more off the field issues?

  2. With Butler gone he would be a natural fit in NE if he could agree on a contract, which could only happen if he is released.

  3. He is on the back nine. That does not mean he will not be an excellent contributor to a team. Probably going to play out his career on one year deals.

    Hopefully he can go back to NE. His old running mate, Gronk, is still there.

  4. He is still a talented player, no doubt. He is also a headcase and on the wrong side of 30. The Giants have a similar problem on their hands with DRC.

    Keep an eye on those sneaky Rams. Wade Phillips has had a successful previous relationship with Talib.

  6. The Rams only solved half of their starting CB issue with Peterson. Once Talib is cut, I’m sure they will kick the tires. Wade Phillips knows how to get the most out of Talib and he won’t be that expensive on a one or two year deal.

  7. If the Chiefs were truthful about calling every other team in the league about Peters and only getting interest from the Rams, who is going to be interested in an older version of Peters that has had more off the field issues?

    Talib is a first ballot hall of famer I guess being the difference

  8. Its astonishing how people portray Aqib Talib in such a negative light. Someone above even compared him to Marcus Peters. Wow. We have never once heard of Talib being a cancer in the locker room or having issues with any of the coaches. So because he is an aggressive character on the field and he shot himself in the off-season, he must be a bad person? Stop it! Most of you would love to have Talib on your team. I personally would take Talib over Marcus Peters any day of the week

  9. I completely understand the Peters – Talib comparisons. Wise GMs know they should *both* be avoided for the betterment of their team.

    Been there, done that. No thanks.

  11. Marcus Peters is seen on the field fighting coaches, fighting teammates, and getting stupid penalties. Talib is fighting the other teams players. The two players are not similar. Talib’s play helps to ignite his teammates. His actions played a major part in the Broncos winning a super bowl. Peters costs his team games.
