Of course, every player is a risk, whether character, injury or just not progressing. BB will judge. My impression so far is Talib is taking the opportunity to be with and act like a winner. It happens. As far as the contract goes I'll say it again and again. We rarely bid up players that only want to break the bank. However, If the Pats want him and he wants to play here, they will find a way. They have signed a lot of players to big contracts that posters here thought couldn't be signed. If Talib continues, he's worth a large contract as a top corner with size and they will negotiate something in that neighborhood if that's what both sides want. They'll need to save money somewhere else and they're good at budget management.
