The Denver Broncos and cornerback Aqib Talib agreed to terms earlier this week on a 6-year $57 million contract, paying the former New England Patriots cornerback as one of the top signings in the 2014 free agency period. It turns out, however, that the deal Aqib Talib struck may actually end up only being a one-year deal for $12 million as reported by USA Today.

Of the $57 million the cornerback is scheduled to receive, $11.5 million was in guaranteed money, all of which Aqib Talib will see in the 2014-2015 season. As one of the top rated corner backs in NFL free agency, Talib has had his fair share of character issues. This contract gives the mercurial cornerback’s new organization an out.

According to an article published by USA Today Thursday “barring a career-ending injury, the Broncos could cut Talib after this season, not pay him another dime, take a $4 million cap hit and move on”.

The option in the contract works as a convenient out for the AFC Champion Denver Broncos who are in ‘win now’ mode with future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning may have a season or two under his belt and has already gone on record saying that “the light is at the end of the tunnel for me, no question” (Burke, Audibles).

If the Broncos were to win the Superbowl with the 37-year-old (38 on the 24th of this month) quarterback, and Peyton decides to retire at the end of the run, Aqib Talib could very well find himself among players jettisoned after Manning’s exodus.

Along with Aqib Talib, the defending AFC champion also made another big free agency splash this week with the signing of former Dallas Cowboys All-Pro Demarcus Ware. Ware’s contract as reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter is worth a reported $30 million over 3-years.
