Talib has had a couple other off-field run ins, most notably he was indicted but later cleared on charges in Dallas County that he pistol-whipped and shot at his sister’s boyfriend.
Talib attended the University of Kansas, where he played for the Kansas Jayhawks football team from 2005 to 2007.
At 30 years old, he has played the last two seasons with the Broncos and has been named to the Pro Bowl in both seasons. A veteran of nine seasons, Talib is a three-time Pro Bowler who has eight career interceptions.
