The tricky part was not getting rid of Aqib Talib. Heck, a lot of us were prepared to do that some time ago.
For the Bucs, the tricky part was how smart they looked doing it.
Bravo for the Bucs. They finally turned Talib into someone else's problem Thursday afternoon. Finally they rid themselves of the headlines and the headaches and the hammerhead decisions that have defined Talib's career. The next time Talib gets into a fight, or a cab, or a medicine cabinet, it will be some other team that gets burned.
And here's the best part:
The Bucs not only rid themselves of Talib, they received a fourth-round draft pick in return for their trouble.
