Report: Aqib Talib Could Be Headed to Colts and Redskins Out Of Cash For Talib?


This is some very interesting news and specifically bad news for New England Patriots fans. The news about Aqib Talib has been very quiet as of late, but that is all about to change. Talib has been in contact with the Patriots about re-signing since the end of the season, but neither side has been able to work out a deal. With the market now open for business, it looks like Talib might end up with one of the Patriots’ arch-rivals: the Colts. Former Colts general manager Bill Polian was asked about some possible Colts moves and immediately jumped to Talib as a possible free-agent splash. Given that he’s about a year removed from heading that organization, it seems pretty likely that Polian has some insight about a potential deal. There is nothing being reported in terms of a contract just yet, but a cryptic tweet from Colts owner Jim Irsay, which was the basis of the question to Polian, does raise some eyebrows about the possibility. https://twitter.com/JimIrsay/status/311580781300576256
Also, Mark Maske of the Washington Post reported Tuesday night that the Redskins remain in the running for Aqib Talib, but may not have the money to get a deal done. According to Maske a person with knowledge of the Redskins’ situation said it still appears that the team will have a difficult time fitting a contract for Talib beneath the salary cap. That person said the Redskins would like to sign Talib but “do not have enough cash.”
