(KKTV) - The Denver Broncos are reportedly sending Aqib Talib to the Los Angeles Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and James Palmer.
Soon after the report, ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted the Broncos are expected to receive a 2018 fifth-round pick in exchange for the Pro Bowl cornerback.
In 2017, Talib started in 15 games and tallied 31 tackles with one interception he returned for 103 yards and a touchdown. Talib began his NLF career in 2008 with Tampa Bay before going to New England for the 2012 season and then to Denver in 2014. He was with the Broncos for their Super Bowl 50 victory. He was a first round draft pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, 20th overall.
The Broncos had been in talks with the Patriots, 49ers and Rams about Talib, who signed a six-year, $57 million deal in Denver in 2014, part of a defensive makeover that carried the team to the Super Bowl title two years ago.
In Los Angeles, Talib will reunite with Wade Phillips, who was his defensive coordinator in Denver, and will play alongside fellow star cornerback Marcus Peters, whom the Rams are acquiring from Kansas City.
