Aqib Talib To Find Out His Fate Stemming From Gun Charges On Friday

Aqib Talib is probably going to be released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers whenever the NFL Lockout is finished due to his off the field problems. Unfortunately for the NFL's 69th best cornerback, though off-field problems continue to pile up.

A Dallas County grand jury is expected to return an indictment of Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, the St. Petersburg Times reports, with the announcement probably being released to the public on Friday morning according to his lawyer.

These charges come from March 21 when police say Talib attempted to pistol whip and later fired gunshots at his sister's boyfriend, Shannon Billings. According to the Times, Talib is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second degree felony which carries a punishment of 2-20 years in prison.

If the indictment results don't come back in Talib's favor -- and let's face it, the odds seem to be against him -- there's a good chance he'll be facing some sort of suspension from Roger Goodell and the NFL whenever things return to normal.
