Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Aqib Talib might want to hold off on working out with his teammates during the lockout. It’s not that it wouldn’t be good for him to stay in shape, it’s just looking more and more like he won’t need to be fit and in game shape when football resumes.
Why? Well, for one a Texas grand jury is expected to indict him on felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges. This is stemming from his little incident where he and his mother fired a gun in the general direction of his sister’s boyfriend.
However, this information was obtained by the St. Petersburg Times from Texas authorities and isn’t an official announcement.
“Official results don’t come out until tomorrow,” Frank Perez, Talib’s Dallas-based attorney said.

Talib is charged with a second-degree felony, which carries a 2-20 year prison sentence. One would have to think that if he is able to escape the long arm of the Texas law, he will face heavy discipline from the NFL. The NFL will get him anyway when the lockout is over, but that’s what he’s looking at at the very minimum.
Talib was suspended for a game last year for assaulting a cab driver. He has also gotten into it with teammates at practice and even got in a fight at the rookie symposium in 2008, which helped get his NFL career off to a great start.
