Once a problem, always a problem: Talib will be a headache in New England, too
Ultimately, players don't change. I would not have drafted Aqib Talib based on his problems in college. He had issues on the Bucs and will have issues in the future.
This trade immediately raises one big question: Will the Pats sign Talib to an extension? He is due to hit free agency after this season. Signing him to an extension is a big risk.
On paper, Talib instantly becomes the Patriots' best cornerback. But how fast can he learn New England's complex defensive system? I think it will take time. Bill Belichick knows this and will try to find a way to get him on the field. Talib might be able to help this team in the short term, but ultimately he will cause problems.
