Aqib Talib Rportedly Indicted By Grand Jury On Aggravated Assault With A Deadly Weapon

Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib and his mother have been indicted on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, Rick Stroud is reporting this morning. This was the exact outcome we expected this morning, as reports surfaced yesterday that said that these were the charges Talib would likely face.

These charges stem from a March 21st incident where Talib and some of the members of his family were accused of pistol whipping and shooting at one of his sister's boyfriend.

This will probably be the end of Talib's tenure in Tampa Bay. He is likely going to face some sort of punishment from the NFL whenever the lockout ends, and I can't imagine the team will want to continue to deal with Talib. He is one of their better young players, but at this point, it doesn't appear like he is worth the headache.

I'm sure more information about this indictment and what it will mean for Talib in the future will be coming out shortly, and we'll have them for you here.
