Bucs Coach Raheem Morris reiterates stance on Aqib Talib

Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris is making sure everybody knows his organization has not made a definitive decision about cornerback Aqib Talib’s future.
Morris appeared on ESPN last weekend and addressed that question, but reiterated his point while on The King David Show on (1010 AM) today.
“Just to say that we’ve come out and made a decision about what’s going to happen with Aqib Talib’s future is completely false and bad information,” Morris said.
Talib, 25, was arrested in March and faces a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police in Garland, Texas, said Talib fired shots at his sister’s boyfriend in a family dispute.
After the incident, Talib denied the accusations through his attorneys. A Dallas County grand jury will decide whether to indict Talib, but because of the current lockout, he can not be disciplined by the NFL.
“The NFL has a discipline policy for our players that is also part of the collective bargaining agreement. Discipline throughout the league and off-the-field issues are always handled through the league office,” Morris said. “There are extra things internally that we do. We might fine people, we may take money, we may sit you out of practice, we may sit you out of games, we may not allow you to participate in certain things.
“The public stuff and the public knowledge is always handed down by the NFL, usually. Right now, the guy has not been judged. Once he gets judged, I’m sure the NFL, or whatever happens there, will step into play. Then we will step into play also.”
