Tim Ryan: Cut Aqib Talib, Draft Mo Claiborne

March 27th, 2012

When news broke yesterday that Bucs troubled cornerback Aqib Talib had his trial on gun assault charges pushed back to late June, thus sort of putting the Bucs in a pinch about not knowing his 2012 season status prior to the NFL draft, Joe assumed the chances Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik selects LSU cornerback Morris Clairborne with the fifth overall pick all the more likely.

Joe’s assumption is what Tim Ryan wants to see happen.

The former Bears defensive tackle and current co-host along with Pat Kirwan on one of the most intelligent football shows in the free world, “Movin’ the Chains,” heard exclusively on SiriusXM NFL Radio, touched base with eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune and suggested Dominik should do his organization a favor and just cut Talib now and wash their hands of his never-ending drama.

Speaking Monday at the start of the league’s annual spring meeting, Ryan said the Bucs can no longer count on Talib, who faces a trial [June 25] in Texas on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

“You can’t trust Talib — his behavior pattern tells you that,” said Ryan, who also co-hosts “Movin’ the Chains” on Sirius XM NFL Radio. “Even if he gets acquitted, you can’t trust him. How many opportunities has he had? It’s time to wave goodbye. He’s one of the most talented corners in this league, but you can’t control him. When it gets to crunch time, he reacts with poor judgment.”

Joe has a hunch the Bucs won’t cut Talib. Sure, if he pleads out, or worse, is found guilty, Talib also will have to stand in front of the court of NFL warden commissioner Roger Goodell to face a suspension, since Talib is a repeat offender in the eyes of the league.

How many games Talib will be suspended — unless he is found innocent — remains to be seen. Given the fact that the 2012 season is Talib’s last under his current contract, Joe’s hunch is Dominik will take as many games as he can get from Talib, and then let him walk after the season.

    I don’t see him with the Bucs past this year, especially if we draft Claiborne. Expect Talib to be wearing a Redskins jersey next year.

  2. Joe Says:

    Expect Talib to be wearing a Redskins jersey next year.

    BUH-HAHAHAHA!

  3. Jrock(mobile) Says:

    Even if he is found innocent, he will likely face a 2 game suspension for merely being in a position that casts a negative light on the NFL. Goodell has done it to other players who have been found innocent.

    Bucfan, I like the redskins prognosis, I’d put my money on them snatching aqib as well!

  4. Brown Bag Says:

    Maybe it is time to restructure his contract leading up to the draft. . .

  5. Eric Says:

    Even if he gets acquitted you can’t trust him?

    Say what?

    Must be in the former Soviet Union.

  6. Eric Says:

    “one of the most talented corners in the league”

    Nuff said.

  7. Architek Says:

    I agree with Ryan but the truth is even if Talib is not found guilty, for this season only, he provides depth for a shallow secondary. The Bucs will more than likely cut Lewis, which means we will be young again in our depth behind the starters.

    I see the Bucs letting him walk next year as this is a contract year for him. His play does not merit a contract extension but the depth element is to our advantage this year. The Bucs know they cannot trust him and the won’t. They will draft Mo’ Claiborne and let Talib, Barber, and Wright teach him how to be a professional this season.

    Low risk because of no expectation and no future = 2012 Aqib Talib situation. Basically his trouble will be leveraged for this season. I believe he will be suspended for 2 games but his value will be with the youngsters in training camp and OTA’s.

  8. Kujolw Says:

    I don’t think will cut him we’ll let his contract play out then just not resign him, But honestly alot of his stuff he’s done is just immaturity. I mean Big Ben gets accused of rape for I don’t know how many time and the Steelers won’t cut him. He’s just to good. Honestly if a guy beat my sister there would be no trail I be in jail for murder because if I fired 5 shots he’d be dead lol. Talib needs a coach not a friend and that’s what Schiano will do different than Raheem. Schiano is giving him a chance as long as the court plays out in his favor to show he’s grown up and matured. Schiano will guide him in the right direction and Ron Cooper will bring out the best in Aqib corner abilities.

  9. thibs5599 Says:

    Gotta keep him for the season, it is a shame how he has gotten into so much trouble since he has been in the league.

  10. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Excuse me for being confused, I have heard all this talk about Talib being soooo talented. What EXACTLY makes him so talented? What exactly ARE his strengths?

  11. Macabee Says:

    I locked horns with Capt. Tim last night re Talib and not going back into that arena today. That rascal is wiry, slippery, ornery, and hard to pin to the canvas! lol

    My point then and I still contend that Talib is an above average CB if you judge him by his stats alone. However, when you view the total person, it is easy to understand why people disagree about his value.

    So much so, that my appeal for him to remain a Buc is muted by the continued drama in his life. At some point, what could have been outweighs what is.

    The Texas case and prior incidents as well have moved me to emotionally detach myself from his outcome. I have no vested interest in what the Bucs decide to do with him. They can cut, trade, keep, sit or play – I’ve moved on and at some point I suspect they likely will to!

  12. Pete Dutcher Says:

    Funny thing…did Big Ben end up getting convicted of a crime? My memory is a little foggy, but am I correct that the charges against him were dropped?

    How many games was he suspended for? Was it 4? 6? Again, my memory is foggy.

    But my point is this…Ben was not a repeat offender and he ended up not being charged I think. Yet Goodell still gave him 4-6 games.

    Talib is a repeat offender who is actually going to trial. I stand on my assertion that he will get a season suspension. Goodell SHOULD suspend Talib a full season. The kid needs a reality check because he is heading down a dark road. A year suspension might smack him enough to fix him, and if he still gets into trouble, he’s yet another wasted talent in the history of the NFL.

    This whole thing reminds me of Pac Man Jones.

  13. Snook Says:

    Cut him!

    Talib belongs with Raheem and Bruce Allen anyways…

  14. Snook Says:

    “Excuse me for being confused, I have heard all this talk about Talib being soooo talented. What EXACTLY makes him so talented? What exactly ARE his strengths?”

    ——————–

    Excellent question. I’ve been wondering this for awhile now.

  15. ALSTOTTSMART! Says:

    THIS GUY GETS IT!

  16. Brown Bag Says:

    I do recall Talib getting beat or diving at the wrong route.

  17. RustyRhino Says:

    @ Eric “Even if he gets acquitted you can’t trust him?
    Say what?
    Must be in the former Soviet Union.”

    Welcome to the New American justice system, you where accused and arrested and your now guilty until you prove your innocent. Even if you are acquitted! The arrest is still on your record. Try getting a Job with this issue. It is not possible, sure you get a interview and a second interview then they want to check your background and guess what pops its ugly head back up….. Been there and living with that now…. It is BS!!!!

  18. JSmalls Says:

    Easy for people to say cut him when they haven’t invested a first round pick and over 20 million on a player. They’re going to get every ounce of blood out of him before they make a decision on him.

    Can someone send me a link that says Mo will be there at the 5th pick?

  19. Miguel Grande Says:

    I wonder how the jury reacts when a clean cut Talib and his very professional team of attorneys sits opposite a thug brought into the courtroom wearing a prison outfit wearing handcuffs and leg irons. A logical person in the jury might question just what he is in prison for. Child molestation? Oh!

    He has the audacity to shake down a professional athlete for money instead of Talib’s poor mother, who actually was armed and out to get this child molester.

    I think Talib has been in situations where he is prone to be shook down for money. Someone, a little smarter, would leave before a situation develops.

    It’s hard to believe that the charges haven’t been dropped already. Trials that have a high visibility are usually pursued for political reasons.

  20. jvato24 Says:

    You don’t cut your best CB if he is innocent. He shot at a rapist. The difference with me is I would not have missed. I am not so sure we resign him next season. Maybe even trade him this season if Redskins would bite. But you don’t cut him and we have the option to franchise tag him next year for 1 extra season if CB is not settled. At that point it will be 2 years since the incident and if he has stayed out of trouble maybe Dom can work out a contract that is thug friendly.

    The main reason I won’t be disappointed if he does end up gone is the BS* he pulled at the end of the Bears game, that was inexscusible.

  21. Joe Says:

    jvato:

    Maybe even trade him this season

    What general manager in his right mind will actually trade for Talib? Shoot, he’s not even the Bucs best corner.

  22. Jimmy Says:

    ““Excuse me for being confused, I have heard all this talk about Talib being soooo talented. What EXACTLY makes him so talented? What exactly ARE his strengths?””

    * Befriending cabbies.

    * Building relationships with fellow rookies.

    * Inexpensive, facial reconstruction surgery.

    * Sharing pleasantries with Rick Stroud.

    Talents on the footballl field? *shrugs*

  23. Have A Nice Day Says:

    It is one more year. Get what little positives we can from him in that time.

  24. Jimmy Says:

    Yeah, Aqib Talib is the second-best corner on a defense that got burned more than a log in a fireplace. Real valuable this guy is.

  25. Eric Says:

    Defense didnt start getting burned until the “next Chuck Noll” became DC.

  26. TampaToo Says:

    JSmalls -

    Exactly. I’ve been reading up on Vikings and Browns websites and it seems to me the chances of Claiborne being there at #5 are slim to none. As a barometer, I checked out a fanpoll at SBnation for the Browns yesterday, and sround 75% of 1,000 respondents strongly favored Claiborne as their pick. My sense it’s about 60% in Minnesota.

    The “shut down corner” dream is attached to risk aversion – the mantra (which is true) is that this is a passing league. The correlate (which is debatable) is that therefore the best value on D (aside from a NYGIants-type D-line) is a shut down set of CBs. The Vikings are tired of being scared of Aaron Rodgers et al. – or at least the fans and local sports reporters are – and they strongly favor Claiborne as a result.

    Cleveland, however, is a mystery to me. They have a pretty good defense (gave up 19 a game last year, I think), and their offense is an absolute abomination. They made us look like the Saints last year. I think taking Claiborne for them would be insane, quite frankly. But the point is, everyone is so afraid of the great passers and receivers that they want nothing more than to realize the “shut down corner” dream, even if it means passing up a Kalil or a Richardson (or indeed a Blackmon, who I still think would be a better pick for Cleveland than Claiborne).

    I’m not saying this because I don’t want Claiborne. I want him on the Bucs, and if we don’t have the choice, then I say trade. I’m just agreeing with your questioning the conventional wisdom that there’s a high probability Claiborne will be left to us at #5. Granted, I’m reading chicken innards, but that’s my sense of what’s going on. FO’s, fans, and commenters alike are re-defining the rank order of positional importance, to the extent that a majority of fans who visit blogs and experts who comment in Minnesota say “Claiborne is the smart pick.” And even in Cleveland, where the needs at CB are not all that great, they STILL want Claiborne, and with a lot of passion (noticeably, almost no one on the Browns blogs is passionate about TRich or Blackmon, even those who want one of them).

    It freaks me out, but I hope we’re prepared to max our value in the draft without him.

  27. ALSTOTTSMART! Says:

    Honest question…….just how many chances do you people propose the guy gets?

    1? 2? 3? 4? 5? 6? 7? 8? 9? 10? 11?

    Next question, do you realize how many chances that he already been given since he has been a legal aged adult?

    Wake up! He will never change. If he was going to change, it would be within the first few chances.

  28. raphael Says:

    SEE YA snoop dog Talib…..Draft Claiborne……..

  29. Brown Bag Says:

    “What general manager in his right mind will actually trade for Talib? Shoot, he’s not even the Bucs best corner.

    Miami will take him. Jeff Ireland is a douchebag schmuck.

    Better yet, Redskins need more animated players with raw potential. Bruce Allen will probably hold a press conference while Rah is licking his cornhole. He’ll talk about how he was just waiting for the Bucs to make a mistake like this.

  30. Fatmosh Says:

    Are some of you suggesting you’d rather have Ronde covering a WR than Talib? Or is it Eric Wright?

    Either way, you’re wrong. Talib is our best cover corner and that’s why he’s still on the team.

    He is a mess of trouble and that’s why he won’t be with the team past this year (if that). But don’t go suggesting he’s not better than any of the below average cover guys we’ve got.

  31. bucbelevr Says:

    Does seem that Talib sure has had a lot of behavioral “chances”, and with the Buccaneer Way now a thing of mantra for Schiano, what better way to instill that message without talking, by cutting Talib, after drafting Claiborne, provided the Browns don’t take him somehow (unlikely though).

    If Dom waited till just before draft and attempted a 3rd round draft pick trade for Talib, maybe he gets it, but that wouldn’t send the louder message for beginning the Buccaneer Way tone, by profiting from his departure. Better to cut him. Draft good talent, great character kid in Claiborne.

  32. SensibleBuc Says:

    “How many games Talib will be suspended — unless he is found innocent — remains to be seen. Given the fact that the 2012 season is Talib’s last under his current contract, Joe’s hunch is Dominik will take as many games as he can get from Talib, and then let him walk after the season.”

    And the truth shall set you free!

    As I said last night, if the Bucs wanted to make a statement they wouldve cut Talib when the incident happened…last year.

    Dom/Schiano want to win now. They don’t get rid of veteran, physically talented, inexpensive depth in exchange for a highly drafted but inexperienced rookie (Claiborne in the 1st or Steph Gilmore in the 2nd) and inexperienced young players on the back end (MyLew/Gaitor).

  33. mister V Says:

    Talib will be a buc and why would you cut your best corner,huh? Talid salary is easy for the bucs, I believe ,it’s 2 mil vs the cool 9 mil the rams gave finnegan. He’s certainly had his share of problems, on and off the field,but still the best the bucs have. Not everybody is going to a choir boy,I think this latest incident finally got his attention. I believe schiano and staff will wait and see where the justce system take this. I have no doubt that they are at least for more aware of Talib’s situation than any of the local or natinal talking heads. As far as Mo Claiborne, I’m sure if he would be drafted by the bucs ,he would be a great fit, but same talking heads that said the bucs will draft mc are now flip flopping to Richardson. Richardson, highest rated offensive player on most draft boards. I find it funny that the pundits,say drafting a rb at #5 is too high,but they are willing to reach for some unknown mlb from bc (snickering,sorry).

  34. ALSTOTTSMART! Says:

    Man, I feel like I entered Spin City.

    Not everyone is going to be a choir boy???? Are you kidding me? There’s a huge difference between a non-choir boy, and a violent felon. Talib is a violent thug felon.

    2004 – Burglary (he broke into a neighbor’s house. Right before heading off to K-State for his “education”

    At K-State – multiple bad drug tests (I don’t care about weed. But, I care about your commitment to the team. It shows you don’t care about anyone but yourself)

    2008 – Getting in a fight at, of all places, the rookie symposium, where they teach you how to be a professional.

    2009 – Fighting, then swinging his helmet as weapon, causing facial lacerations to Torrie Cox

    2009 – Battering a cab driver WHILE HE WAS DRIVING. With other people in the cab

    2011 – Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon. Firing a gun at a person, while in a residential area. Imagine if he hit an innocent child!

    2011 – Altercation with his own head coach while in London

    2011 – Claims that he threatened a women while in a traffic incident.

    And guess what? I bet there a more incidents that have been swept under rug. This is just what we know.

    Honestly, I think a few of you would let him beat up an old lady, as long as he remained eligible. What a sad, sad group of Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans you Talib apologists are. Have some respect for you team and community.

    STOP PAYING VIOLENT THUGS.

  35. JSmalls Says:

    The only thing Eric Wright is better than Talib at is staying out of trouble. Ask Gennings and Steve Smith who’d they rather face.

    Yeah, our DB’s get torched because the never see third and long. Hell, some games opposing offenses were never put in obvious passing situations. Let’s put this in perspective, the Ravens defense went up against 30+ more 3rd downs than the Bucs and were on the field a full quarter less throughout the season. That is f’ing crazy.

    Tell me football geniuses, how can you evaluate a pass rush or secondary coverage skills when you never see 3rd and long and hardly see third downs. What you can evaluate is tackling running backs, which was not good.

  36. JSmalls Says:

    Alstottnotsmart, any convictions? And that altercation with coach allegedly took place in 2009 when the Bucs played the Pats.

    No, I would not let him watch my kids but I’d let him cover receivers or bag my groceries. The latter being more important in my day 2 day activities.

    You’ve got to be kidding me. Anyone that makes the claim either way would be full of crap if stating it as fact.

    And even if Mo is not there…Dre will be and we need a CB that badly.

    But don’t make the mistake…if we draft Mo, Dre or any other CB, that person is not Talib’s replacement. Eric Wright is. Talib is a true #2 CB, not a #1.

  39. ALSTOTTSMART! Says:

    JSmalls,

    Do you want to allow yourself to read between the lines, and call it what it is, instead of playing defense attorney?

    Or do you honest to God, in your heart of hearts, think that all those incidents are not indicative of who he truly is as a human being?

    You think after all of those numerous times, over many years, think that he is somehow misunderstood? If so, I would like to sell you many, many items. Because I know that you will buy them.

    Honestly, stop lying to yourself. What if it were one of your own family members at the receiving end of one of Talib’s many crimes? That might be the only way that some of you see the light.

    It’s really a pathetic, disgusting day when you can read off his past transgressions, and people try to defend him.

    It’s a sad day in Buc fan land, when people support the violent thugs.

  40. Pete Dutcher Says:

    I have been a major spoke person for Talib in the past. If he had more than a year left, I might see the Bucs taking a final chance on him.

    That said, I am sick of the excuses. People, the guy gets into trouble almost every off season. What makes you think he won’t this one?

    And Goodell will suspend him, convicted or not, for 16 games, with a review after 10 games. Sound familiar?

    Same as Adam Jones the first time around.

    How some people can sit there and claim Goodell will cut him slack is beyond me. Talib has done absolutely nothing to earn that benefit. I’m all for giving people opportunities to redeem themselves…but there comes a point when doing so makes you weak. It’s going to take a major punishment to make a difference in Talib’s life…and that’s what matters more than his roster spot on this team.

    He needs a steep penalty to slap him with reality. Period.

    He also needs to be sent packing. I say this not only for the team…I say it for his benefit. He needs to understand what he is risking by doing stupid things like this.

    And it’s not like Talib has not been given opportunities to clean up his act. He’s had countless ones. There is a pattern that need to be broken…and part of breaking it will require him being cut…and a lengthy suspension.

    Because if drastic measures are not taken…he’s going to end up killing someone. With each new occurrence, things have gotten more violent. This last one was an attempt to kill someone. The next one, he might well succeed. And then what? The Bucs get sued like the Titans did for not taking stronger measures with Adam “Pac Man” Jones.

  41. Joe Says:

    For the record, Aqib Talib did not go to Kansas State. He attended Kansas, which, ironically, is Mark Dominik’s alma mater.

  42. Pete Dutcher Says:

    Also…if he was so good a player, people would not have to include multiple years in his evaluation of stats.

  43. ALSTOTTSMART! Says:

    Joe,

    Totally right. Knew that, brain fart.

  44. RichinNC Says:

    Talib is just one of those people where trouble follows. Whether or not it is his fault he gets in trouble and in the NFL that will get you suspended from the Judge/Jury/Executioner.

    Someone said that Wright is only better at not getting in trouble than Talib.

    Well I would take the guy who is not in question every year of being suspended again over the guy who will be on the field and will tackle someone.

    He is slightly above average sometimes. Only reason he seems like a shut down corner is look who is on the other side. Who would you throw against? Talib or Biggers?

  45. JSmalls Says:

    It’s not about being a lawyer… Talib runs around and covers dudes on a football field for 48hrs a year. He’s not head of the Hillsborough County school board. Obviously, if he can’t be on the field then you evaluate the situation and make the decision best for the team, but to say “cut him we’ll draft so and so” is too detrimental to the team at this stage.

    As bad as our 1st round picks have been, we need to drag this Talib thing to the last minute just for the slight chance he can be the player he’s capable of.

  46. ALSTOTTSMART! Says:

    Whether we like it or not, there are young people who look up to the pro players who represent the local NFL team.

    It’s too bad you are ok with violent thugs representing our local team.

    I am not. I hope the majority of fans are not. I hope the new regime is not.

    There can be both, good players who are also good people. Talib is not. The sooner people come to grips with this, the better.

  47. mister V Says:

    Alstottsmart, you are correct on some and may be correct on others,but the bucs are as familiar with Talib’s as you are and they continued to pay him and in all likelyhood continue this year. I know in order to make a point for drafting MoClay,then we must fine reasons to discredit Talib,right? But the bottom line will be(& is) Talib, a member of the 2012 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, like it or not. This not personal attack on you ,but rather the business side of pro sport.

  48. ALSTOTTSMART! Says:

    mister V,

    You seem to be make the assumption that the moves the Tampa front office are the proper ones. History has shown us time and time again that they are, often, not.

    Extending Michael Clayton, extending Black, offering an even larger contract to Haynesworth than Washington. Signing Winslow to the largest TE contract in history. The many, many, many bad draft choices….etc. So, just because the team knows about Talib, and he is still on the roster, does not make it the right thing to do. Sure, it may be reality right now. But, Talib might be gone very soon. And Dominik certainly does not have a lifetime contract.

    As for discrediting Talib to shine Claiborne. Absolutely wrong. I haven’t liked Talib for MANY years now. I don’t expect the team to be full of choir boys, but, I don’t want violent thugs on the roster either. He’s been a violent thug from day one, before he even got on the field.

  49. JSmalls Says:

    He’s one player! Maybe I should take my 4 year olds Longoria jersey away from him because #3 likes to party, bang lots of chicks and doesn’t lock up his assault rifles.

    Honestly, I don’t ever remember seeing a kid wearing a Talib jersey. Maybe parents can guide there kids to the right roll models and don’t need that decision made by Mark Dom or ALSTOTTSMART.

  50. ALSTOTTSMART! Says:

    The second Longo starts punching out local citizens, shooting off said assault rifles in a residential neighborhood, and fails many drug tests, then yes, then you should take away the jersey.

    In the meantime, nice deflection.

    Yeah? What happened to Innocent until proven guilty, I am 46 and I remember it very well.
    So like I said be “accused” of a felony get “arrested” for that “accusation” and then go to trial, get acquitted of this felony arrest. Now tell me how to avoid this situation, That arrest becomes “you” and you have to prove “your” Innocence again every time you apply for a job, apply to get your water turned on, open a bank account etc. You cant always avoid some things, Blind Lady Liberty of Justice now has some unbalanced scales.. And it is Hard alright to free yourself of these accusations & arrest.
    I am not saying that Talib is a heavenly angel, or even almost at sainthood. But it is damn hard to move on past, life’s previous unpleasant mountains.

    And believe me if I was Talib at my home and it was my sister I would not have missed, because I would have followed this “typical citizen?” to where ever he was going in such a rush and made it close and personnel.
    Fire them Cannons!!! Lets GO BUCS!!!

  52. JSmalls Says:

    ALSTOTTSMART, as a gun owner, I can say that not locking up a gun while you’re away from your home is one of the most irresponsible acts a law abiding citizen can commit and is more dangerous than anything that Talib has done. Most gun crimes are from stolen or unregistered guns.

    We have to put things in perspective, there’s a QB in this league that’s still playing after he had his goons trap a girl in a bathroom while he had his way with her. There are some bad seeds in the NFL and there will always be. There is a time and place to deal with each case and to cut Talib at this point will hurt this team.

  53. ALSTOTTSMART! Says:

    We will simply have to agree to disagree. This team is actually pretty devoid of malcontents. Talent perhaps, but mostly not bad citizens. In a crowd like that, Talib sticks out like a sore thumb.

    I can’t wait for him to be gone. He is not as good on the field as some seem to think, I seriously doubt he’s a standup lockerroom guy, and there not one iota of evidence that he will stop.

    When does it end? When he hits the human target? It was his poor aim that kept it from trumping Big Ben. He has yet to learn his lesson. I doubt that he’s capable. So, I’m just waiting for the next black eye. There’s enough defensive back talent on this earth to stop rewarding people like Talib.

    I understand that you are able to live with someone like this on the team you cheer for. I am not.
