CB Aqib Talib meets with Roger Goodell

August 25, 2011


— Cornerback Aqib Talib has rejoined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after missing one day of practice to meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell about the player’s role in an offseason shooting in Texas.

The fourth-year pro from Kansas University who’s arguably the team’s best defensive player is facing a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following an incident in March in which police in the Dallas suburb of Garland say they believe the 25-year-old player and his mother shot at a man.

It’s not the first time Talib has gone before Goodell, who a year ago suspended the cornerback without pay for the 2010 regular season opener for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Talib also was fined one additional game stemming from an altercation with a cab driver in August 2009.
