ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Broncos have reached agreement on a six-year deal with former Patriots CB Aqib Talib.
- Schefter adds that Talib will receive $57 million over six years and $26 million guaranteed.
- Lindsay Jones reports that after reaching an agreement with Talib, the Broncos have ended contract talks with CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
The Patriots were reportedly working to keep Talib, however, he managed to do extremely well in this contract.
Denver added T.J. Ward for less money than the Browns paid for Whitner last year, which was a pretty big surprise, but the Broncos are clearly pushing their chip into the pot for next season.
Talib, 27, was the Patriots best cover corner and started the season off great before injuries took a toll later in the year. He totaled 41 tackles, four interceptions and a forced fumble over the course of 13 games.
Pro Football Focus has Talib rated as the No. 58 cornerback in the league last season. We had Talib listed as the No. 11 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
