Broncos To Sign Aqib Talib

The Broncos have agreed to sign free agent cornerback Aqib Talib, tweets Adam Schefter of ESPN. The deal gives Talib $26MM in guaranteed money, according to sources.

The total worth of the deal is six years and $57MM. With Vontae Davis and Alterraun Verner also signing contracts today, the top three cornerbacks are off the market, in addition to Sam Shields who was re-signed by the Packers earlier this offseason. That potentially leaves Darrelle Revis as the last big impact corner available.

Talib was the seventh ranked free agent according to our own Luke Adams, making him the number one corner available. One spot below him overall was Verner, who earned himself a contract just about half what Talib will receive from the Broncos.

    As a Patriots fan, this is really frustrating. We definitely needed to keep Talib, he was a huge part of the defense. Now we need to go hard after Darrelle Revis.
