Bad news strikes Tampa Bay once again, this time it comes in the form of starting cornerback Aqib Talib facing a one game suspension issued by the NFL. The suspension is for violating the league’s personal-conduct policy.
The decision to suspend the former first round pick stems from Talib’s arrest last year after he allegedly hit a cab driver. The Kansas alum entered a diversion program that included anger management classes.
Luckily, the Bucs are facing the Cleveland Browns Week One, a team that isn’t much of a threat through the air. However, his absence still hurts the Bucs’ defense all around, and with him out of the lineup, Vanderbilt rookie Myron Lewis will get a shot to prove his worth in the season opener.
