Per fanball.com newsbreakers email that I receive.Talib is named as Rookie Combatant #1
Updating an earlier story, we have now learned that the two rookies that got into a fight in the middle of the NFL's Rookie Symposium were Tampa Bay cornerback Aqib Talib and 7th-round draft pick Cory Boyd, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
Talib and Boyd were reportedly "jawing at each other for awhile," then came to fisticuffs during a Budget and Finances meeting. Both players were tabbed for questionable character and potential off-the-field issues coming into the draft, and now they both have their first official incident as NFL employees. We'll see if commissioner Roger Goodell takes action against both players in the days ahead.
All I have to say is wow. And glad no Steelers were involved. I love that they were both tabbed as players with character issues and they are living up to the hype.
Can you imagine going to a sales conference or something, and just throwing down with a rival company's sales rep. You'd be fired...ha.
