Pro-Bowl cornerback Aqib Talib helped the Denver Broncos win their third Super Bowl championship last season. However, the latest NFL rumors suggest that the Broncos are ready to trade Talib and the Washington Redskins is one of his potential destinations.
Dianna Russini of ESPN first reported that the 30-year-old CB is on the trading block and the Broncos front office is listening to offers. Talib is facing a disciplinary action from the NFL due to an incident this offseason wherein he was shot at a Dallas nightclub.
According to Josh Hill of FanSided, the Washington Redskins is the perfect trade partner for Aqib Talib if ever the Broncos decide to let him go. He noted that adding Talib will make the Redskins more respectable and possibly a contender out of the NFC East.
“Washington’s front office might not be the brightest, but they take risks. Adding Josh Norman was a giant risk that made sense because it was Washington. Trading for Talib is a total Dan Snyder move, and if there was a team to blindly way the max premium for the Broncos cornerback, it’s Washington,” Hill reported.
The NFL writer also named the Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots, and Buffalo Bills as possible destinations for the Super Bowl-winning cornerback. However, NFL rumors in Denver imply that the reports about Talib being shopped are not true.
“False. (Talib’s) name was never brought up anywhere,” Broncos GM John Elway told reporters on Saturday, via Yahoo! Sports.
According to Sean Walsh of Mile High Sports, Talib is very expandable given his behavior on and off the field, as well as the possible emergence of Bradley Roby. Expect more NFL rumors to surround Talib and the Broncos moving forward.
