ESPN reporter says the Broncos are shopping out Aqib Talib

Denver Broncos corner Aqib Talib practiced Monday for the first time since getting shot June 5.

ESPN’s Dianna Russini reports that the Broncos are “making Aqib Talib available for a trade for the right price,” citing multiple anonymous sources.

Talib was shot earlier this year in the leg – we don’t know by whom, but it may have been himself.

SB Nation theorizes that the Broncos might want to trade Talib because they have other guys who can cover his position, and of course he makes a ton of money. This is also the last year of Talib’s contract, SB Nation reports.

A Broncos vice-president denied the rumor flatly.
