Aqib Talib, the veteran cornerback for the Denver Broncos, is reportedly on the trading block. The NFL rumors started with reports that the Broncos are looking for the “right price” in exchange for Talib on Saturday.
Dianna Russini of ESPN tweeted, “The Denver Broncos are making Aqib Talib available for a trade for the right price per multiple sources,” to start the speculations that Talib is on his way out of the Broncos’ roster before the new NFL season begins.
Talib, a three-time NFL Pro Bowl team member, is a good player for the Broncos the last two seasons but is already 30 years old. He played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2008 to 2012 and the New England Patriots in 2012-2013. He’s with the Broncos since 2014 and helped the team win Super Bowl 50 last season.
Talib has been involved in a controversy this offseason. He suffered a gunshot wound to his lower right leg in an incident in Dallas but did not suffer any major injury. The incident added to the NFL rumors that the Broncos are willing to let him go this summer.
However, Broncos general manager John Elway denied the NFL rumors that they are trading away their veteran cornerback.
“False. [Aqib Talib’s] name was never brought up anywhere,” Elway stated to ABC News to dispute the speculations that they want to let go of Talib.
