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.
Apr 8 - 12:46 PM

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.

A source tells the Boston Herald that free agent Aqib Talib wants to be paid as a top-of-the-market corner.

As he should. Talib is entering his age-28 season and was the Patriots' most valuable defender last year, consistently dominating opposing No. 1 wideouts as a shadow corner. Brent Grimes is going on 31 and just got a four-year, $32 million deal from the Dolphins that included $16 million guaranteed. Although Talib has some off-field issues and a nagging hip concern, he's not going to hurt for leverage once he hits the open market. He was our No. 2 corner coming into free agency, behind only Grimes.

Free agent Aqib Talib wasn't franchise tagged by Monday's deadline.

Talib wasn't tagged last year before ultimately returning to the Patriots on a one-year deal just a few days into free agency. There's reportedly mutual interest in a new deal. The sides have until Saturday to exclusively negotiate. Free agency begins March 11.

The Patriots and free agent CB Aqib Talib are set to meet at the NFL Combine.

The Pats have a slew of impending free agents, but Talib seems to be their number one priority. Lacking a ton of cap room, the Patriots may struggle to match the $7 to $8 million per year Talib could command on the open market, but a four-year, incentive-laden deal could work for both sides. Talib is our No. 2 free agent corner.

Owner Robert Kraft said negotiations with free agent CB Aqib Talib are "a balance."

The Patriots didn't do themselves any favors during the season by repeatedly lauding Talib as their defensive MVP. Now Kraft is trying to steal some leverage back. "It's not like we have unlimited funding," Kraft said. "[Talib] wasn't on the field a lot of the time since he's been with us. It's a balance, of us balancing all that out and what is he worth." The Patriots got good news on this front Tuesday as the Redskins re-signed DeAngelo Hall. Washington was thought to be a potential suitor for Talib as Raheem Morris is their defensive backs coach.
