Report: Aqib Talib wants to be paid like “top-of-the-market corner”

It does’t sound like Aqib Talib will be giving the Patriots a discount this offseason.

According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald,  Talib wants to be paid like a “top-of-the-market corner.”

Talib wants to be paid as a top-of-the-market corner in free agency, according to a source. Since the Dolphins signed Brent Grimes to a four-year, $32 million contract, including $16 million guaranteed, that baseline for this class of prized free agents has been established.

We all know the Patriots never pay, so I don’t believe Talib will be back in 2014
