Broncos LCB Aqib Talib has lost his appeal of his one-game suspension.
He will miss Sunday's game against the Chiefs. It weakens the Broncos' league-best defense, but will be far from a deathblow against Alex Smith and company. If the Broncos had to lose one of their starting corners, this is the week. Smith simply doesn't throw touchdowns. Tue, Nov 10, 2015 05:19:00 PM

Broncos CB Aqib Talib is appealing his one-game suspension for poking Colts TE Dwayne Allen in the eye.

Talib said on Monday he deserves discipline but hopes he can get the penalty reduced to a fine. Ndamukong Suh had his suspension reversed in a similar situation last season. Even if Talib sits out this week against the Chiefs, the Broncos offense should have little trouble stopping Alex Smith and company.

NFL suspended Broncos LCB Aqib Talib one game for violating the league's personal-conduct policy.

Talib committed arguably the dirtiest action of the season when he poked an unsuspecting Dwayne Allen's eye in Sunday's loss. He'll undoubtedly appeal, and if history is any indication, could get his ban thrown out. Talib is playing at an elite level, but his presence won't be strictly necessary against the Chiefs' "passing attack" in Week 10.

Broncos CB Aqib Talib suffered a sprained right ankle Week 5 against the Raiders.

Talib was able to play through the injury after receiving treatment, but he was noticeably limping in the locker room. Talib was confident he will be ready for Week 6 following the game. "I am not going anywhere. I will be back out there," Talib said. "It was just a basketball roll. I will be fine." Talib may miss some practice time, but he should be ready for Cleveland next week.

The Dallas PD has suspended its aggravated assault case against Broncos CB Aqib Talib.

Talib was being investigated for assault after an incident on April 8. After talking to witnesses, the Dallas PD said it doesn't have enough evidence to proceed at this time. This story should fade away. Talib can move on with his life.

WFAA Dallas reports Broncos CB Aqib Talib is being investigated for aggravated assault after an altercation at a Dallas-area nightclub early Wednesday morning.

Little details are available, but both Talib and his brother are under investigation by the Dallas PD. Two vehicles associated with the Talibs have been towed and are being searched for evidence. Talib was an off-field malcontent early in his career with the Bucs, but had managed to stay out of trouble in recent years.

Broncos LCB Aqib Talib was forced from Denver's Week 12 game against the Dolphins with a left hamstring injury.

Talib attempted to play through the injury for a few series, but was nowhere to be found in the second half despite not officially being ruled out. He should be considered day to day, and questionable for Week 13.

The Dallas Police Department confirms Aqib Talib's brother, Yaqub, was the one arrested for public intoxication early Sunday morning at Club Syn.

So, there's really nothing to see here. The Dallas PD appears to have jumped the gun with a "breaking" non-story. "Original information reported was incorrect," the PD tweeted. Yaqub is 31 years old. Aqib hasn't had any off-field issues in two seasons. He'll shadow opposing No. 1 receivers for the Broncos this season.

Aqib Talib's agent denies that his client was the one arrested early Sunday morning in Dallas for public intoxication, but that it was Aqib's brother, Yaqub.

The Dallas Police Department contends it was Aqib. Profootballtalk reports that "it's not [Aqib]," and that Aqib is actually at home "in bed." There aren't many details available, but it appears the Dallas PD has their Talibs mixed up.

Broncos CB Aqib Talib was arrested for public intoxication Saturday night in Dallas.

Talib was escorted out of Club Syn at about 1:45 AM after a "disturbance." He was allegedly throwing bottles in the club and "causing a danger to himself and others." It's Talib's first off-field issue since receiving a four-game ban for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs in October 2012.

USA Today reports Aqib Talib's "six-year, $57 million contract" could end up as a one-year, $12 million deal.

Only $11.5 million of the deal is truly guaranteed. Another $500,000 is available for 2014 through per-game roster bonuses. Talib's 2015 and 2016 salaries are guaranteed for "injury only," meaning that, barring a career-ending injury, the Broncos could theoretically move on next offseason. Doing so would incur a $4 million cap hit. It's unlikely to happen, but as is often the case, deals are trumped up in the early days of free agency.

Broncos signed CB Aqib Talib to a six-year, $57 million contract with $26 million guaranteed.

Denver attacked its secondary on the first day of free agency, landing Talib and top strong safety T.J. Ward. Talib, 28, has gotten his act together off the field in recent seasons and when healthy is a top-five press-man corner in the game. Look for DC Jack Del Rio to utilize him in shadow coverage of opposing No. 1 receivers. The Broncos have drafted well under GM John Elway, have a lot of salary cap space to show for it with so many players on cheap rookie deals, and Peyton Manning has 1-2 years left. We can't blame them for going all in.

ESPN's John Clayton's "early prediction" is the Redskins will sign free agent CB Aqib Talib.

It's growing clearer and clearer that the Skins are simply going to outbid the Patriots for Talib. That would allow New England to focus its efforts on re-signing Julian Edelman. Talib is likely staring at $10 million a year.

The Washington Post confirms the Redskins have "expressed interest" in free agent CB Aqib Talib.

There are many connections for Talib in D.C.; DBs coach Raheem Morris was his head coach in Tampa Bay, and GM Bruce Allen drafted Talib when Allen was the Buccaneers' GM in 2008. Per the Post, Talib is "believed to be seeking a contract that would pay him $9 million to $10 million a season." A league insider told the paper the Redskins want to "make a statement at DB" this offseason.
Sun, Mar 9, 2014 06:52:00 PM's John Keim considers the Redskins a possible landing spot for free agent Aqib Talib.

Talib has ties to secondary coach Raheem Morris, but wouldn't be a great fit with outside corners DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson both under contract. Washington may be better suited to make a run at Captain Munnerlyn for his ability to play the slot. Talib is reportedly looking to be paid as a "top-of-the-market" corner and could command $8 million annually. It's worth noting Hall is open to playing safety, which could open up a hole for Talib to fill outside.
