THAT would be my first concern......talent level notwithstanding

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.

[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.

Talib is a great player but a team cancer. Think along the lines of Brandon Marshall/TO but for CBs

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.

And if the Ravens thought that, they wouldn't have a Hall of Fame linebacker on their hands, and would not have won SuperBowl XXXV. Different players, but same principle

- R.Lewis - indicted for murder 1/2000
- Super Bowl MVP 1/2001

I would think each case is different. Before everything went down with Ray Lewis, he had already achieved superstar status. Aqib Talib has only achieved decently talented corner status. On top of that, Ray Lewis didn't have Goodell as his commish, and guilty or not Talib is probably already facing a nice suspension for his off-the-field transgressions.

Probably the best possible rationalization I've heard about this. Well done!
