Why am I asking about Aqib Talib some of you may be asking? Well some of you might not be aware that the Dolphins acquired the rights to the veteran cornerback in a trade last year that also brought with it a 5th round pick in the upcoming 2020 NFL draft. At 34 he is the second oldest player on the roster under veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (37).

He is an URFA and most likely will retire as he seems to be looking at a career in television as a analyst for the NFL Network. That to me is the most likely scenario for Aqib Talib but there is a history and a relationship between Brian Flores and Aqib Talib as Talib played for New England in 2012 & 2013 and was a very good player.

He went on to sign a a six-year, $57 million contract that included $26 million guaranteed with the Denver Broncos in 2014 and remained there for 4 years and played at a high level.

On March 8, 2018, the Broncos agreed to a trade that sent Talib to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for a fifth round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft

On October 29, 2019, Talib was traded, along with a fifth-round pick, to the Miami Dolphins for a 2022 seventh-round pick

Aqib is 34 years old and an URFA, Miami can decide to keep him and the benefit to possibly doing so is there are certain veteran players worth having on the roster to help keep the locker room together and to be a mentor to the young players that will be added or are already on the team.

I would have no problems if Miami were to try to bring Aqib Talib along in 2020 because his veteran leadership is invaluable.
