Aqib Talib expected to remain with Bucs
When Aqib Talib was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in March, it was widely expected that the Bucs would wash their hands of him as soon as the league year started. But that no longer appears to be the case.
Several more recent reports have suggested that the Bucs havenít made any decision about cutting Talib, and the most recent report, from Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, says Talib is prepared to attend training camp whenever the lockout ends and will likely remain with the Bucs throughout the 2011 season.
Talib has previously run afoul of the leagueís personal conduct policy, and it seems likely that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell would suspend him for the latest incident, in which he is accused of shooting a gun at his sisterís ex-boyfriend. But itís not clear whether the new CBA will change Goodellís power to suspend players, and itís also not clear to what extent acts committed during the lockout will be subject to the personal conduct policy.
So itís unclear what Talibís status with the league office will be. But when training camps open, heís expected to be there as part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
