Patriots not sure they can trust Aqib Talib on a multi-year contract
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Feb 5, 2013
Aqib Talib played well for the Patriots after they acquired him from the Buccaneers just before the trade deadline, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be in New England for long. Everybody saw what happen when the Patriots had to play with out Talib against the Ravens. Which means there’s a real chance that the Patriots will have given up a fourth-round draft pick just for the right to rent Talib for half a season. That’s no surprise: Talib has great talent for the cornerback position, but he always been known as a player whose character red flags make coaches leery of him. I, personally, do not wan New England to resign Edelman because that is precious money we could use on instant impact players and players who bring much bigger values to the team.
