    98.5 is announcing it right now. What the Patriots gave up has not been announced.

    Now we have to deal with people screaming about his character and his current suspension for "Adderall".

    I hope we extended him with the trade because he's a free agent after this season.

    Mayoclinic gets the cred for calling this one, here's his post from last week:

    I don't know about Delmas, but the Bucs were reportedly shopping Talib in April prior to the draft, and have reportedly shown interest in trading him again:

    Report: Bucs shopping Aqib Talib for trade | ProFootballTalk

    ProFootballWeekly.com - On thin ice, Bucs grant Talib a reprieve


    BB has enough of a relationship with Greg Schiano to at least open a dialog in that direction. It looks fairly likely that the Bucs will at least part way with Talib after this year if not sooner, so the asking price may be low. Talib is very talented, so it might be worth a shot. If it doesn't work out, the Pats could still explore other options in FA.


    Good call!

    Which ends Monday. And his contract for the rest of the year is $871K. So if he screws up he can be cut easily.

    Good pick up but I still think the problem is scheme, not personnel. Perhaps Talib can overcome that.

    To be fair Deus, they are massive concerns. The kid's a walking rap-sheet and headache.

    Huge talent, which I think we'll be able to keep on the straight and narrow, but the concerns are real.

    Hopefully he can stay out of trouble. Talib/Dennard at corner with McCourty staying at safety has potential to improve the pass defense a lot.

    Does it matter that the Pats are on bye? It's a 4 game suspension, not a 4 week suspension.
