What to do about Aqib Talib...

Today in Texas Aqib Talib will finally go in front of a grand jury to try to fight charges stemming from an incident two months ago involving his mother, sister and his sister’s very classy ex-boyfriend. What exactly transpired in Texas is still uncertain, Talib’s attorny alleges his client never fired a gun and claims to have dozens of eye-witness accounts to back it up. The Texas legal system clearly felt differently though as Talib is now facing charges that he fired a gun off at his sister’s boyfriend during a dispute.

This could all end for Talib today if his attorneys can persuade the grand jury that there is insufficient evidence for an indictment, Talib’s legal team all along has said its goal was to get the charges tossed out before a grand jury could even indict the Bucs’ talented,  but oft-troubled corner.

For what it’s worth the Bucs claim to have made no internal decisions and will in all likelihood be keeping an extremely close eye on today’s proceedings. The Bucs didn’t address the corner position until late in the draft (and Anthony Gaitor isn’t going to replace Aqib Talib) and many around Tampa would like to see Talib in Pewter again next season. We’ll update you later today…
