Several sources are reporting tonight Aqib Talib can expect a four-game suspension for his arrest that occurred last March in Garland, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. Talib was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon when he and his mother were involved in an altercation with Talib’s sister’s alleged boyfriend.
Talib met with commissioner Roger Goodell last Tuesday in New York but refused to comment on Wednesday other than to say, "I met with the commissioner, but I'm going to keep all the details between me and the commissioner, if ya'll can respect that.”
Buccaneers' head coach Raheem Morris, who was hoping no action would be taken until the legal proceedings were final, commented on Talib’s situation earlier this month.
“I know you have to go through a whole bunch of legal stuff and all that jazz,” Morris said. “I don’t think anything will happen as far as the league. I don’t have any idea what is going on with the front office. I don’t mean our front office, the league office. They don’t usually pass judgment until something happens legally first. They do a great job up there handling those situations. I’m sure they will handle this situation no differently.”
