Not sure about him. On one hand he's talented and personally I liked him a good bit when he came out in 2008, and anyone that knows how much I hate corners understands how high of a compliment that is.

On the other hand we already went through the Haynesworth debacle and I don't necessarily see this guy having a Sean Taylor like turnaround as Sean was always a good guy at heart. Talib just seems self-centered and trigger happy in more ways then one.

I mean the team has worked this hard to turn around the culture that weeds out selfish players so I don't know why they would want to risk that at this point.

If he comes in humble with his head down and his mouth shut he will be a fantastic addition. However if he comes in as the same loud mouth trouble maker then it will be a disaster. Would at the very least need him to play for a below market team friendly contract to help keep him in line.

Only because receivers are worried about a warning shot across the face.

This team likes to talk about bringing in character guys that fit what we're trying to do here, and yet we hear things like this in the media? Something's not adding up, the last thing I want is another talented egomaniac who's always stirring shit up and making us look bad.

Talib is worth maybe a 3rd or 4th round draft choice. The thing is he has 17 interceptions in four seasons which is highly impressive.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency (and Trades) Tracker (Chapter III)

An intriguing player -- great talent, very young. Has not finished the last two seasons due to injury, but would expect him to be okay physically going forward. It would be nice to have that talent on our roster, and with him our secondary would immediately be much stronger.

The character issues -- you'd expect Raheem Morris to have the inside info on that, and he believes in him, I'd be willing to take a chance for a later draft pick & contract which protects us against his problems off the field.

Problem players are not good for the locker room, but if the rest of the locker room is supportive, one or two players may not be toxic. I'd hope.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency (and Trades) Tracker (Chapter III)

Aquib Talib has had some problems off the field. Just like Pac Man Jones the year he played for the Cowboys, Jerry Jones regretted signing him because Jones couldn't stay out of trouble. Talib, as reported, could be headed to prison. He's a great talent, but there should be concerns about his behavior off the field. Just because Raheem Morris is the Redskins defensive backs coach and was Talib's head coach in Tampa Bay doesn't guarantee that Talib will be a great addition and fit in or stay out of trouble. Signing him could prove too risky.

Talib is what they affectionately call a knucklehead and may have some jail time/suspension time unresolved.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency (and Trades) Tracker (Chapter III)

[edit - double post]

I think players with character issues come in two types: (1) Players who are bad for the locker room, and (2) Players who get in trouble off the field. I think those are two different things, and often go together - but not always. If he is not toxic to the locker room, he may be worth the risk. If he's definitely headed to prison, then wouldn't consider it.

I wouldnt get Talib this year, Id wait to see how things pan out with his attempted murder charge. I would actually concentrate next year on Ryan Clady when he b/cs a free agent over Talib

You know.....I'm thinking if I need to wait and see how my potential employee's murder charge pans out.....maybe I don't need him.
