    Report: Buccaneers ready to release Aqib Talib

    [QUOTE][B][SIZE="5"]Report: Buccaneers ready to release Aqib Talib[/SIZE][/B]

    The Buccaneers are set to cut cornerback Aqib Talib whenever the NFL lockout ends and are allowed to make such a move, the St. Petersburg Times reported Sunday.

    This comes in the wake of Talib's most recent troubling off-field incident on March 21 in Garland, Texas. The 25-year-old was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for his involvement in the shooting of his sister's boyfriend.

    It's just the latest strike that apparently has become the last straw for Tampa Bay officials. Talib has been tied with such violent incidents since being drafted in the first round in 2008.

    There were two altercations with teammates, first at the '08 rookie symposium and then in his second year, when he attacked offensive tackle Donald Penn with a helmet, which ended with Talib delivering a head-splitting blow to fellow Bucs defensive back Torrie Cox.

    Just last year, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Talib for one game for violating the league's personal conduct policy after he was served with a battery charge after being accused of hitting a taxi driver.

    Late last week, one of Talib's teammates, defensive tackle Chris Hovan spoke out against him, encouraging coach Raheem Morris and general manager Mark Dominik to make sure Talib would soon be an ex-Buccaneer.

    With the decision to release Talib already made, it's clear Morris and Dominik agree he has run out of chances in Tampa.

    Makes Cro, Holmes and Braylon look like choir boys by comparison.

    He's going to jail and is going to be suspended indefinitely.

    I guess if you needed a thug to guard thug Marshall of the phins, he would be OK

    I'd vote to wait for him to be released from prison though in about 3-5 years before worrying about signing him

    why do we want this fool? Are people really that dumb and blind and think Cromartie is easily replaceable?

    They where 4-1 without him last year. He is a good young player but replaceable. Tampa has a lot of those guys. They have 6 or 7 good DB prospects even without him. When you have a guy like Myron Lewis sitting your bench you have options. Don't make this out to be the beginning of the end for a good team.
