Aqib Talib is one of the best cornerbacks left remaining on the free agent market that has been slow to develop in the offseason, but it looks like a favorite is emerging to land his services. With the money not being thrown around for the players currently available, the speculation is that the New England Patriots will be able to retain Talib and bring him back at a discounted price.

It seemed like the plan all around in New England that the team would be able to bring Talib back to town after he tested the market and the risk appears like it will pay off.
