Report: Aqib Talib "facing suspension", meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell this week

According to Adam Schefter, Tampa Bay Buccaneer Aqib Talib will visit with commissioner Roger Goodell this week to discuss a possible suspension. In fact, to quote Schefter he is "facing a suspension". 

At some point, Aqib Talib will be punished for his offseason incident - whether he is convicted or not. This was too big an incident for the NFL to ignore, especially given the fact that this wasn't Talib's first run-in with the law. The only real question is whether Talib will be suspended this season, or whether Goodell will wait until the legal process has ended. Talib's trial will not start until after the 2011 season, so if the commissioner does choose to wait, Talib will be available to the Buccaneers for the upcoming season. 

When the Bucs had to miss Aqib Talib last season, E.J. Biggers did a nice job filling in for him. Unfortunately, Biggers struggled mightily against the Lions' Calvin Johnson, who the Bucs will be facing in Week 1 of the regular season. If Aqib Talib is suspended for that game, Biggers or perhaps Myron Lewis will have to step up to stop Calvin Johnson from breating the Bucs again.
