Report: Aqib Talib could be suspended for his lockout legal issues

Cedric Benson was supposedly notified of a three-game suspension for lockout misconduct. Benson was tried and sentenced to a 20-day jail sentence before the season, which is probably why his suspension is now going through. Benson is still appealing, though, and it may not stand. 

But according to Yahoo!'s Jason Cole, Aqib Talib could be suspended as well. Supposedly the NFL and NFLPA agreed that Aqib Talib, Cedric Benson, Kenny Britt and five other players could be suspended for their conduct during the lockout. 

Aqib Talib was charged with Assault With a Deadly Weapon after a March shooting involving his mother, his sister and her ex-boyfriend. 

Jason Cole claims that barring an acquittal or plea bargain, Aqib Talib will be suspended for four games after his trial in March. That's no real surprise, the idea that Talib could get into trouble with the law yet again without being suspended was always unlikely. I'd be surprised if Talib won't be suspended even if he is found not guilty. 

There's no point to fretting over this until it actually happens. At some point the Bucs are going to have to get by without Aqib Talib for at least a couple of games, but with six cornerbacks on the roster that doesn't need to be a huge problem.
