The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that they have traded suspended cornerback Aqib Talib to the New England Patriots. The Bucs also threw in a seventh-round selection in next year's draft in exchange for New England's Round 4 choice.

Guess we should have see it coming after they cut Sterling Moore. Thoughts?

Talib's a certified nutjob but the Pats secondary (especially the CB) are awfully suspect.

When his head is screwed on straight, he's a very solid CB. 

For a 4th?  (I'm pretty much dismissing the 7th in return) I'm kinda "Eh".  The last few chances they've taken in deals like this haven't worked out. 

I guess anything to help the secondary at this point, though.  They're clearly in "win now" mode.

Also on the Aqib Talib thing, I think Desperate is the right word, but its not necessarily a bad thing.  If the pats think that they are close and this could put them over the top then I would say go for it. 

Also with the way the ocho and haynesworth things worked out most recently im not blindly going to assume coming into this lockerroom will solve Talib's problems.  But if they can get him to lay low off the field for the next 3 months this could work out.

Risky, for sure. Desperate might be a bit strong.
I suspect Sterling Moore will be back on practice squad, so if things really don't work out with Talib, then Moore will be back with the team.

EDIT: Yep, Moore is back on the practice squad.

Cunningham is probably one of the (brightest) surprises of the season. I pegged him to be cut/off the roster, but he's been great.

Pats cut Deion Branch today to call up George Salas ... not quite in sync with this, though I assume it's just a youth movement thing. ???

That first drive by the Colts was much too easy.

Thought we'd be able to stop the Colts run game easily.  I guess not.  Now Jones hurt.

So much for the Talib bashing ... and Bill looks like a genius once again. Sweet acquisition at this point ... here's hoping it continues.
