Aqib Talib

I know I'm going to get some bad looks for asking this question but the guy has talent and size something our secondry needs. In our division we have big receivers on every team and we don't have a CB over six foot so I was wondering what you guys thought about bring him to the Saints.

Re: Aqib Talib

It could work, but Payton would have to get a handle on his "issues"

You want get a bad look from me because I like the idea. I know, I know.. troubled history, off the field issues BUT he has ability and the physical tools to be a good addition to our secondary. I liked him in Tampa and also briefly with the Pats.

YES to Talib.

Re: Aqib Talib

I completely agree with the point about the undersized corners, and the Saints need to do something about it or they'll just keep getting burned by big receivers

but from everything I've heard about Talib, I don't know I'd want somebody with those kinds of character issues on the team.

I agree with off the field problems but it takes the right coach to dill with some players and this kid can play I wanted him when he came out of college. I just think it would be a good fit for him and the Saints.

Re: Aqib Talib

I would welcome Talib. As far as his off the field issues....sometimes you gotta take the risk if it means making your team better. There's a locker room full of high character guys that can help keep him on the right path.

But at this point I'd rather take a risk with a guy with character issues than continue to pick high character guys that can't help your team. **** happens in life. Take a chance and see if he can do better.

Question Re: Aqib Talib

Did the Patriots cut/release him?
