New Tampa Bay Coach Schiano Says Team Doesn’t Want to Trade CB Talib

Available for trade or not – that’s the question.

And that’s the big question when it comes to Tampa Bay CB cornerback Aqib Talib, as earlier today, reported that the Buccaneers were willing to trade Talib.

Then, after workouts for the club, their new head coach, Greg Schiano said that was not the case.

“Only because there’s some extenuating circumstance, I’m going to comment,” Schiano said. “Usually I won’t. In this day and age, with all the blogs and everything, if I commented on every speculation, it would be an everyday task.

“All I can tell you is that there is absolutely zero thinking on our part as far as wanting to do that. I want him to be a Buc. I understand there’s been issues before I arrived. I’m not naive to that. And I understand that some of those are a heck of a lot bigger than playing football.

“But I am really hopeful that that clears itself up. Since I met him for the first time, he’s done everything I’ve asked. He’s practiced well and he’s prepared well. I try not to judge people other than (by) how they treat me, and he’s treated me well. “I don’t know how all that got started, but no, there’s no truth to that.”
