by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib returned to the practice field on Friday after sitting out the previous two days of practice with a hamstring injury. The Broncos have officially listed him as questionable for Week 13 at Kansas City.

Talib suffered the injury Week 12 vs. Miami. He has registered two interceptions, one forced fumble and 43 total tackles through his first 11 games with the Broncos.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Broncos list Aqib Talib and Kayvon Webster as day-to-day


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) The Broncos listed cornerbacks Aqib Talib (hamstring) and Kayvon Webster (shoulder) as day-to-day and will be re-evaluated Wednesday, reports the Denver Post.

Talib left Sunday’s game against the Dolphins after tweaking his hamstring and attempted to return, but was eventually pulled. Webster was not able to return to the game after injuring his shoulder.

The Broncos next play Sunday at Kansas City.


Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib suffers hamstring injury


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib left Week 12’s game against the Dolphins in the first quarter with a hamstring injury. Talib went to the locker room to receive treatment and was able to return to the game. However, the injury has lingered causing Talib to miss playing time.

Wait another week on Broncos DST


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) The Broncos revamped their defense after ranking 22nd in points allowed (22.9) and 19th in total yards (356.0).

They added defensive end DeMarcus Ware, safety T.J. Ward and cornerback Aqib Talib. They drafted corner Bradley Roby in the first round. And they'll benefit from Von Miller being in better shape.

Last year's No. 13 Fantasy DST should finish as a Top-10 unit this year. But the group might not mesh right away. And Sunday night's game against the Colts, with a whopping over/under of 55, is going to be a shootout.

Indy gave up the 11th-fewest Fantasy points to DSTs last year (7.56 per game). Sit the Broncos DST in Week 1, if you can, then start the unit Week 2 in a much more attractive matchup against Kansas City.


Broncos draft Bradley Roby at No. 31


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) With the No. 31 pick in the NFL Draft, the Broncos selected cornerback Bradley Roby from Ohio State.

Roby is 5-foot-11, 194 pounds, and he ran a 4.34 40-yard dash. He is expected to challenge for a starting spot right away opposite Aqib Talib, and he could allow the Broncos to keep Chris Harris as a slot corner.

This will help the Broncos defense and Broncos DST, who have revamped their secondary from 2013, bringing in Talib, T.J. Ward and now Roby.


Aqib Talib only guaranteed one year


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) The Broncos gave defensive back Aqib Talib a massive six-year, $57 million contract in free agency, but have an out if things don't go well in the first year. According to USA TODAY Sports, just the first $11.5 million of Talib's contract is fully guaranteed, so the team could get out of the contract with just a $4 million cap hit in 2015.

Talib's deal also includes $13 million in combined base salaries for 2015 and 2016, however they are only guaranteed in the event of injury. He is scheduled to make an extra $500,000 in 2014 if he plays all 16 games, something he has yet to do in his NFL career. 


Broncos pull off stunner, sign Aqib Talib


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) The Broncos' defense proved their undoing last season, so they have set about rebuilding the unit in free agency. The Broncos signed defensive back Aqib Talib to a six-year deal worth $57 million according to ESPN.com Tuesday, with $26 million in guaranteed money.

Talib has enjoyed a career resurgence in two years with the Patriots, finishing 2013 with four interceptions and 41 tackles in 13 games en route to a Pro Bowl selection. 


Report: Redskins to duel Patriots for Aqib Talib


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2014) The Redskins likely will be the Patriots' strongest competition in the bid to sign free agent corner Aqib Talib, reports the Boston Herald. Redskins secondary coach Raheem Morris worked with Talib when both were in Tampa Bay.

Aqib Talib wants 'top-of-the-market' money


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Impending free agent Aqib Talib "wants to be paid as a top-of-the-market corner in free agency," reports the Boston Herald. Presumably, the Patriots won't be able to keep Talib unless they give him a deal in the Brent Grimes neighborhood: four years, $32 million, including $16 million guaranteed.

If the sides don't agree on a deal by Saturday, Talib can start negotiating with other teams.


Franchise tag deadline won't stir Patriots


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) The Patriots want to re-sign cornerback Aqib Talib and receiver Julian Edelman, but they're highly unlikely to use the franchise tag to keep either, reports the Boston Herald. Teams have until 4 p.m. ET to designate a franchise player.

The tag costs $11.8 million for cornerbacks and $12.3 million for receivers, the two highest figures for non-quarterbacks, the report said.


Price for Aqib Talib just went up


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) The $32 million deal corner Brent Grimes signed with the Dolphins suggests the price for free agent corner Aqib Talib "just went up a bit," reports ESPN.com. Grimes' contract reportedly includes $16 million guaranteed.

The Patriots would do this type of deal for Talib but not with all the guaranteed money up front, the report said. The team would want the guarantees split up over a few years.


'Chances are strong' Aqib Talib returns to Patriots


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) "The chances are strong" that cornerback Aqib Talib re-signs with the Patriots, reports ESPN.com, noting the "mutual interest between the sides." Talib will be one of the most sought-after corners if he hits free agency March 11.

Patriots, Aqib Talib talking contract


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) The Patriots and top cornerback Aqib Talib's reps are meeting at the NFL Scouting Combine with the hope of inking a deal before free agency starts March 11, reports the Boston Herald. Talib, who played 2013 on a one-year deal worth $5.5 million, might be seeking a three- or four-year contract worth $7 million to $8 million annually, the report said.

New England could make that sort of deal work "through incentives based on performance and games played," the paper added.

Talib suffered a hip injury midseason and then a knee injury in the AFC Championship Game, but did not require surgery.


DeAngelo Hall deal affects Aqib Talib market


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) The Redskins' re-signing of cornerback DeAngelo Hall makes it less likely the team will pursue corner Aqib Talib, reports ESPN.com. Washington made a serious play for Talib last offseason but is unlikely to have the cash to do so now, the report said.

Washington is paying Hall about $4 million annually, while Talib should command at least $5 million per year. The Patriots would love to re-sign Talib, at the right price.

If the Redskins don't go after Talib, they'd likely start Hall and David Amerson at corner.


Report: 'No chance' Pats tag Aqib Talib


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/7/2014) While the Patriots would like to have cornerback Aqib Talib back in 2014, the Boston Herald believes there is "no chance" the team uses the franchise tag on him. That means he'll have to agree to a contract -- and the Patriots might not splash a lot of cash his way. 

The Herald thinks the Patriots will offer a team-friendly contract that keeps him with the team through his age-30 season. The money could approach $25 million over that span with some incentives built in. Talib was the Pats' top cover corner in 2013 but was hurt in the middle of the season and in the AFC title game. 


Robert Kraft expresses some hesitation about Aqib Talib


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) Patriots owner Robert Kraft pointed to cornerback Aqib Talib's injury history when discussing whether the team will re-sign the free agent. Talib made the Pro Bowl last season but was bothered by a hip injury the second half of the year. He also got knocked out of the AFC Championship Game for the second straight year.

"Well, we want to retain all the good players we can retain," Kraft said on WBZ-AM. "It's not like we have unlimited funding ... He wasn't on the field a lot of the time since he's been with us.

"It's a balance of us balancing all that out and what is he worth," Kraft added. "I think he's happy here and would like to be here and we're happy with him and we'd like to have him here and now it's just about doing business."

If Talib, who made $5 million in 2013, asks for $7 million or more, the Patriots might let him test the open market, according to NFL.com.


Robert Kraft hoping to keep Aqib Talib


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he "very much" wants free agent cornerback Aqib Talib back, per the Boston Globe. "Look what happened in the Denver game when he went down," Kraft added.

The Broncos passed at will against the Patriots in the AFC Championship game after Talib injured his knee in the first quarter.


Devin McCourty hopes to remain Aqib Talib's teammate


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Patriots safety Devin McCourty is hoping he hasn't played his last game alongside secondary mate Aqib Talib. The cornerback is slated to be a free agent after playing for $5.5 million in 2013.

"It's a business, so both sides have to come to an agreement," McCourty told the Boston Herald. "Even if you say both sides want it to work, that doesn't always mean that's what is going to happen. Aqib has been a good friend of mine now. I've gotten to know him, and I hope he is back."

The knee Talib injured in the AFC Championship game is not expected to require surgery.


Redskins could target Aqib Talib in free agency


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib could be high on the Redskins' list of targets during free agency, reports the Washington Post, noting the team pursued Talib last offseason but didn't have enough money to sign him. "Talib played for Redskins defensive backs coach Raheem Morris while in Tampa, and Redskins coaches remain high on him," the report added.

Washington, which has corner David Amerson under contract, would like to re-sign corner DeAngelo Hall as well, the report said.
