The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded cornerback Aqib Talib to the New England Patriots at Thursday's NFL trade deadline. In what was a relatively slow day at the deadline around the league, the Patriots made the biggest splash at the last minute, picking up a cornerback to hopefully shore up their secondary woes. No word yet on who New England sent to Tampa in exchange for the cornerback. Talib is currently serving a suspension resulting from a violation of the NFL's drug policy until Monday, where he will presumably be reinstated and begin practicing with the Patriots. His contract is set to expire at the end of the 2012 season. In his fifth season in the NFL, the former Kansas Jayhawk has 18 career interceptions, and one INT return for a touchdown. Talib has not played a game in Week 4 against the Redskins. In exchange for Talib and a 2013 7th-round pick from the Bucs, the Patriots sent a 4th-round pick for next year's NFL Draft. The trade details: CB Aqib Talib and a 2013 7th-round pick for a 2013 4th-round pick. — Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@TBBuccaneers) November 1, 2012
