Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib had an eventful day on Monday as he toured around to give his takes on the current situations happening in Denver right now in regards to the team.
No matter how you shape it, Aqib Talib has had quite the eventful offseason. After winning Super Bowl 50, the former Kansas Jayhawk cornerback got married to his finance and had quite the weeding.
With OTA’s on the horizon, it was time to get to work for Aqib Talib. But not before he went to Bristol and joined the various ESPN programs and radios to give his take on the situations in Denver.
The biggest question that was answered by Talib was what he thought of the quarterback situation. And he answered the question by praising one of the best quarterback’s to play the game.
“It is a good thing we have John Elway. He does a great job putting teams together. He doesn’t just bring guys in for their talent. He brings in guys that can mesh with the team.”
I could not agree more. Elway has done an exceptional job at putting this team together. Just because the most popular player in the league is out there does not mean Elway is going to pursue and try to acquire him. He wants to cover all bases and make sure he would be a good fit for the team.
Talib also mentions that he likes that the Broncos chances to repeat in 2016. And for good reason. The Broncos are returning the bulk of their Super Bowl defense.
Aqib Talib also mentioned on if Von Miller would be attending the organized team activities that begin on Monday. It was reported that if Miller would advance in Dancing with the Stars that he would miss OTA’s. But Talib’s comments on the situation calmed us all down.
“I think that he’s going to be there on the 18th. The last time I talked to him, he was going to be on his way to Denver on the 18th with everyone else.”
That gives fans a sigh of relief. But Miller was not formally vocal about it, but I think I would take a teammates word on the situation.
One other big thing that interested me from Aqib Talib was his take on Brock Osweiler and Malik Jackson leaving in free agency for their big paydays. He went on the radio show Russilo and Kanell to give his takes on it.
“I tell them that it’s not always greener on the other side. I’ve been on the other side before. It may look like $100 million, but after two 3-13 seasons, the whole contract is gone. Once that guaranteed money and new staff are there, that whole contract is gone. I gave a fair warning to Osweiler man.”
That is an interesting development. But seeing as how Osweiler left for Houston, I guess Aqib Talib’s warning fell on deaf ears. We shall see in two-four years if Talib’s words are in fact true.
A lot of good information from Aqib Talib on Monday. From what he had to say, I feel confident. And I think Broncos Country should as well. Let’s see what Talib and the Broncos have to offer in 2016!
