Denver Broncos, Aqib Talib Agree to Massive 6-Year Deal

12 Mar

The Denver Broncos continue to bolster its secondary. Hours after signing Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward away from the Cleveland Browns, the Broncos signed free agent cornerback Aqib Talib to a 6-year $57 million dollar contract, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The deal includes $26 million in guaranteed money.

Last season with the Patriots, the 28-year-old Talib played in 13 games recording 4 interceptions to go along with 13 pass deflections. One of the biggest strengths of Talib’s game is his size and his ability to match-up with big physical receivers.

The biggest knock on his game is his inability to stay on the field. Talib has never played in all 16 regular season games, and had to leave the Patriots past 2 AFC Championship games early due to injury.

Now the New England Patriots are left with a hole at cornerback and may also turn to the services of Darrelle Revis.
