Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said the team will welcome Aqib Talib back when he returns from suspension.

When Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib was suspended for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs, some called for the team to release him, but Bucs head coach Greg Schiano said the originization will welcome Talib back when he returns.

Talib was suspended for four games for a violation he said came from taking one Adderall pill prior to training camp. He was also suspended for the first game of the 2010 season for an offseason incident where he punched a cab driver. Despite those two suspensions and other incidents which didn't result in suspension, Schiano said Talib would be back with the team when eligible and the organization would then move forward.

Talib served the first game of the suspension this past week against the Kansas City Chiefs and will now miss team's next three games against the New Orleans Saints, Minnesota Vikings and Oakland Raiders. The suspension will also cost Talib roughly $500,000 in salary.
