The Broncos are expected to put veteran cornerback Aqib Talib on the trading block this offseason according to Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver.
Talib, who turns 32 years old next month, had another strong season in 2017 and graded out as the 13th-best corner in the league out of 121 qualifiers according to Pro Football Focus. The reality, unfortunately, is that even with a rising salary cap the Broncos cannot afford to spend $28 million on the cornerback trio of Talib, Chris Harris and Bradley Roby when the team has such glaring needs in other areas.
As the oldest of the trio, Talib is deemed the most expendable. Originally a first-round pick out of Kansas by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers way back in 2008, Talib has played in Denver for the past four seasons. The five-time Pro Bowler is due $19 million over the final two years of his current contract.
