Aqib Talib’s Legal Matters Could Bring League Discipline
With Aqib Talib’s recent incident involving a gunshot wound to his leg, will the Denver Broncos cornerback be handed down with league discipline from the NFL?
In seven days, in the morning window MDT as well, there will be Broncos training camp stuff to discuss and all of us will be deliriously happy. As I have exhorted on Twitter and other platforms, I hope you’ll spend time with us at Predominantly Orange to get your Broncos fix.
With that said, perhaps not all members of the stellar “No Fly Zone” secondary will be on hand for all of the Broncos’ games this upcoming season as the team defends its Super Bowl title for the third time in franchise history.

In a report from NFL Draft Diamonds and Mike Klis of Denver’s 9 News (KUSA-TV), which can be found here, talented but problem-prone cornerback Aqib Talib may yet face league discipline for when he was shot last month.
Talib, as all Broncos fans know, is no stranger to controversy and was even suspended one game in 2015 when he eye gouged Indianapolis Colts tight end Dwayne Allen in a 27-24 loss suffered by the Broncos on November 8.
Beyond this, in previous stints with the Patriots and Buccaneers, his run-ins with the law have undoubtedly made his legal squad more proficient in Latin than an old-school Catholic priest ever could be.
With all of that said, should he face another suspension, the Broncos are blessed with tremendous depth and versatility in the secondary as both Bradley Roby and Kayvon Webster are adept at filling in at the drop of a hat as they showed last season when called upon.
If Talib can keep his nose clean moving forward, he still possesses great talent as in 15 games in 2015, he posted three interceptions (two of which were returned for scores), 13 passes defensed and 39 tackles.
In any event, the portion of the Broncos’ defense that many call its strongest last season, the aforementioned “No Fly Zone,” should once again be impervious to “unauthorized aircraft” from the likes of New England and Atlanta, come what may in 2016.
