Broncos will try to trade CB Talib this offseason

Report: Broncos to place Pro Bowl CB Aqib Talib on trade block

He has six interception returns for a touchdown since joining Denver and was selected for a fifth straight Pro Bowl this season, his fourth with the Broncos. He is also just one season removed from being a first-team All-Pro selection in 2016.

Talib acknowledged his lack of a future in Denver right after the season was over, with the idea he could be cut.

Klis cites financial considerations as the reason why the Broncos will try to move Talib, who has two years left on the six-year, $57 million contract he signed in March 2014.

As noted in that report, Talib is under contract for two more years, but the team has two young, talented cornerbacks in Chris Harris Jr.

Talib is due $11 million in 2018, followed by an $8 million payday for the 2019 season.

Though he's been a Pro Bowl selection in each of the past five seasons, Talib will turn 32 on February 13, so Denver might be looking to get out of his hefty contract before his skills noticeably decline. Even with the salary cap going up from $167 million to between $176 million and $180 million for the 2018 season, it's hard for a team to allocate $28 million to three cornerbacks.

Talib and pass-rushing linebacker Von Miller are the only Broncos who will play in the Pro Bowl with kickoff at 1 p.m.in Orlando.
