ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos traded corner-back Aqib Talib to the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, according to several reports.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Rams will trade a 2018 fifth-round draft pick to the Broncos in exchange for the veteran cornerback.
The trade will reunite Talib with former Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. Phillips was the defensive coordinator when Talib and Broncos won Super Bowl 50 in February 2016.
Talib spent four seasons with Broncos and had 11 Interceptions, including six touchdown returns.
He is a four-time Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro.
Broncos players took to Twitter to respond to the news.
“No lie I’m gonna miss my brother @AqibTalib21,” C.J. Anderson tweeted. “Learn a lot from you big bro excited for you.”AlertMe
