The Denver Broncos have placed cornerback Aqib Talib on the trade block, according to an ESPN report:
The Denver Broncos are making Pro Bowl cornerback Aqib Talib available via trade for the right price, sources told ESPN's Dianna Russini on Saturday.
Broncos general manager John Elway denied the report.
Talib, entering his ninth NFL season, had three interceptions -- two of which were returned for touchdowns -- and 45 tackles during the Broncos' championship season in 2015.
The three-time Pro Bowl selection also has played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots during his career.
Denver has reportedly became concerned about Talib after rumors emerged that he accidentally shot himself in the leg at a nightclub over the summer. The growth of third cornerback Bradley Roby has also made Talib a bit more expendable to the Broncos.
Talib picked up 45 tackles and three interceptions last season.Back to the Denver Broncos Newsfeed
