Talib Draws A Crowd, Long-Term OfferMay 23rd, 2012
It’s still baffles Joe that Bill Belicheat had so much love for helmet-wielding, cabbie-slugging, Adderrall-popping, coach-cussing, referee-charging, pistol-friendly, granny-hassling, injury-prone Aqib Talib.
Jimminy Christmas! This new Boston Herald story even claims Talib turned down a long-term deal from the Patriots in favor of the one-year, $5.5 million contract he’s got now.
Talib drew a gaggle of reporters this week at Patriots practice and the video is below. Talib can’t remember what month it is and talks about conditioning and contracts like only he can. Yes, Joe’s salivating at the thought of Talib covering Vincent Jackson when the Bucs head to New England in September.
