The Denver Broncos have begun the breakup of the No Fly Zone as they agreed to trade Aqib Talib to the Los Angeles Rams for a fifth round pick.
Denver have parted ways with their long time member of the No Fly Zone, Aqib Talib.
Multiple reports (first by James Palmer) indicate that the Broncos and Rams have agreed on a trade for the veteran. Talib goes to Los Angeles to become part of the Rams. In return, the Broncos will be getting a fifth round pick in this year’s draft.
Aqib Talib reunites with Wade Phillips, his former defensive coordinator. Not to mention the Los Angeles Rams could have quite the cornerback tandem. Talib and Marcus Peters on either side of the field will be tough for opposing quarterbacks and wide receivers.
It pains Broncos Country to see a beloved member of the No Fly Zone leave the city of Denver, especially someone as well liked as Talib. A lot of emotion goes in seeing that a leader of the defense is gone, just like that.
With Talib being traded, Chris Harris Jr. becomes the number one corner in Denver and Bradley Roby will become corner back number two.
Denver can benefit from the draft pick. But a fifth round pick though seems a little low. But if anything, it was better to get something rather than nothing.
I believe what makes this most painful is seeing a leader on the defense no longer in Denver. While Aqib Talib had some moments, but Broncos Country loved him. We hope he does great things with the Los Angeles Rams.
The moves are coming in slowly. Time to see what the next move the Broncos have up their sleeves. I have no doubt that more moves will be coming up.
