Buccaneers CB Aqib Talib has had his share of legal problems this offseason.
In late March, he was arrested on a felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly firing gun shots at his sister’s boyfriend. Before he was indicted, he decided to place all the blame on his mom (perhaps you shouldn’t blame him; if convicted he’d face five to 20 years in prison).
Either way, it seemed like there was a good chance the Buccaneers would release him the first chance they got, especially considering this isn’t exactly Talib’s first time in trouble with the law.
Of course, Tampa Bay GM Mark Dominik let us in on a little secret today: Talib, for the time being, isn’t going anywhere. He told reporters today (via ESPN.com) that he expects Talib to report to training camp on time.
There are also reports that Talib will be on the roster for 2011. So, aside from an NFL suspension that’s almost surely coming, Talib should feel OK about everything. Unless, of course, a court of law finds him guilty.
