Aqib Talib Has "No Standing Offers"

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

This puts everything into perspective on the Talib front. No team has presented him with an offer.

According to Mike Giardi of CSSNE, Patriots free agent cornerback Aqib Talib is in an interesting position. Teams have been kicking the tires, but none have presented an offer. This contradicts the notion that Washington provided an offer that is lower than New England's, which is what NBC Sports was reporting yesterday evening.

If Talib truly is standing out in the cold (which, as Giardi points out, is linked to the potential of Darrelle Revis hitting the market), then the Patriots hold all the cards here. Perhaps teams are waiting to see how the Patriots value Talib before issuing their own offers.

Perhaps the Patriots are going to get Talib at a much better price than previously anticipated. The corner wants to be paid in the range of $9 or $10 million, which is clearly not going to happen on a long term deal.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Patriots managed to wrangle Talib into a Sebastian Vollmer-esque deal that has health escalators that could grow into the $9 million range, but the base will certainly be more palatable.
