DT Chris Hovan Critical Of Team’s Handling Of Aqib Talib

Buccaneers defensive tackle Chris Hovan believes the team’s hierarchy has been far too lenient with cornerback Aqib Talib. Speaking to radio station WQYK in Tampa, Hovan was critical of coach Raheem Morris and general manager Mark Dominik. Talib has been involved in several off-field incidents since being drafted by the Bucs in 2008.

After a recent arrest in March, Talib could face discipline from the NFL after the lockout. “How many strikes does Aqib get?” Hovan told WQYK. “I mean, really? He beats up a taxi driver. He beats — I saw what he did to Torrie Cox by hitting him in the head with a helmet. I have never seen that before in my 15-20 years of playing football. … He took his helmet off and whacked him over the bridge of the nose. He knew what he was doing. I mean, how many times does ownership and management let this kid get off? It’s not fair to the other players because you have all these other players following the straight and narrow and you are letting one individual go out and do his own thing? I don’t feel that is acceptable right now. Raheem and Mark Dominik need to address this because they are saying he is bigger than the team right now.”
