    There's a reason he was given away last year.
    If he wants to give us a discount (maybe a 2m/year under free agent price) then yes.
    If he wants the most money -- which my guess is he does as he decided to sign a '1 year prove it' deal, let him walk; there's a risk that good behavior won't last once you get your money (witness AHern recently reverting after getting paid; or Moss after 3 years of good behavior).

    Yes, somewhere in the range of $7-8M a year, with an escape clause for an arrest or suspension.

    I would tag him if we can't come to terms with him, he could be the best cornerback in the NFL right now.

    Pay him or Franchise him.

    Whatever you do, make sure he's on the Patriots next year.

    Talib needs to be resigned. I would talk to him right bow about his contract and pay him some big bucks.

    That's weird, before the season everybody here said he wasn't even top 10.

    Dude made a great gamble betting on himself if he keeps it up. Really hope we get something done during the bye.

    I will personally contribute to make sure this guy is back in a Pats uniform next season.


    There is no good reason NOT to resign him.

    Not me I said that he could be a top 5 CB since I saw him win the off season workout award.

    Yes, sign him long-term, otherwise BB is just going to use the 1st pick in 2014 on some suck-ass DB instead of a beast lineman...wait...he might do that even if we DO sign Talib:(

    No. Franchise tag. Too scared he re-becomes a bad ass.

    BUT. Wow. He is legit on the field. Majorly legit. Most important non-Brady on field. Wow.

    Long story short : he has been amazing. But I am still fearful of giving him long term cash.

    If we pay Talib that means we have to let McCourty walk at the end of his rookie deal :(

    Sure there is. How about he was "overrated last year" or "he wasn't the difference maker for this D, it was all McCourty moving to S".
