Has Aqib Talib Played His Last Game For Tampa Bay Buccaneers?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed former Kansas Jayhawks star Aqib Talib on injured reserve after the cornerback aggravated a hamstring in Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. It’s an injury that Talib has been dealing with since earlier this year and so it’s not that surprising that the Bucs have shut him down.

Brad Biggs of the National Football Post wonders if this also means that his career with Tampa Bay in the greater sense is also over. He writes, “It’s worth wondering if Talib has played the final game of his career with the Bucs. Talib, of course, faces a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly firing shots at the boyfriend of his sister this past offseason. The court case is expected to proceed after this season is over.”

While drama has surrounded Talib in his NFL career, it’s also clear that he’s among the most talented ballhawks in the league. If Pacman Jones and his on-paper results can continually find work, Talib will have no problem staying a force for some defense as long as he’s legally able to play.
