The Broncos later signed him to a six-year, $57 million contract that includes $26 million guaranteed before trading him to the Rams this offseason for a fifth-round pick.

Talib stands to make a base salary of $11 million for the 2018 season.

In 2018, Talib has appeared in three games for the Rams and recorded nine tackles, no interceptions, a forced fumble and two pass defenses.
