Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

After four seasons playing with the Denver Broncos, cornerback Aqib Talib was traded to the Los Angeles Rams. It was not a surprising move considering talks of trading Talib had been going on since the end of the 2017 season.

On his way to a new adventure, Talib posted this heartfelt goodbye to the Broncos organization.


Talib was a big-time contributor to the Broncos defense, recording 186 total tackles, 50 defended passes, 11 interceptions and six touchdowns throughout 58 games. He was also on course to earn $11 million in 2018 under contract with Denver.

This cost-saving trade by the Broncos earned them a fifth-round draft pick in exchange for Talib.

He will now be part of a dynamic Rams defense that also recently traded for cornerback Marcus Peters. Watch out NFC West.
