Report: Broncos expected to cut ties with Pro Bowl defender

Aqib Talib is reportedly headed out of town. 

According to 9News.com, the Denver Broncos are expected to place the five-time consecutive Pro Bowl cornerback on the trading block because of financial considerations.

Talib has two years left on the six-year, $57 million contract he signed with the Broncos in March 2014. 

The Broncos have two other younger cornerbacks in Chris Harris Jr. ($8.5 million) and Bradley Roby ($8.526 million) scheduled to make a combined $17.026 million in 2018.

Talib, who will turn 32 on February 13, is scheduled to make $11 million in 2018 and $8 million in 2019. Even with the salary cap going up from $167 million to between $176 million and $180 million for the 2018 season, it’s difficult for a team to allocate $28 million to three cornerbacks.

Talib and pass-rushing linebacker Von Miller are the only Broncos who will play in the Pro Bowl with kickoff at 1 p.m. in Orlando.
