Jaworski Tells the Tribune that Talib Needs a Lot of Work

The Tampa Tribune wrote today about Bucs CB Aqib Talib, and in an interview with ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski, Talib needs a lot of help to get back on track and have a productive pro career.

“You have to give him help,” said Jaworski. “That’s the most important thing. I do not think you give up on him. I know it’s a high-risk, high-reward situation, but Talib’s a tremendous player who has made some mistakes. You surround him with some quality people.

“Every team in this league has some troubled players. Somehow, (coach) Raheem Morris has got to get his arms around him. The organization has to get its arms around him. The Bucs have to make sure there’s a support system in place.”

Talib was suspended for the opening game of the 2010 season for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Goodell said that policy remains in place, even during the current labor dispute that has seen the union decertify and the owners implement a lockout that bans any contact between players and club personnel.

“I think if you give up on a guy like this, and this is the human side of this situation, Talib could be worse off,” said Jaworski, in Tampa Bay recently for an ESPN shoot. “He could go off the deep end if he doesn’t have football, if he doesn’t have structure in his life.
