A few weeks back, New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft hinted that the NFL is a business and sometimes business decisions needed to be made.

It was essentially Kraft and the Patriots drawing a hard line in the sand in regards to pending free agent Aqib Talib, who is understandably looking to get paid.

The Patriots were attempting to play coy in regards to Talib, but it’s pretty clear they want him back and the two sides are said to be meeting at the NFL’s draft combine to look at parameters of a potential new deal.

Per the Boston Herald:

After weeks of silence, one of the Patriots’ first moves involves priority free agent cornerback Aqib Talib. The two sides are set to meet in Indianapolis to continue negotiations, though it’s unclear if the first round of contract proposals will be exchanged, according to a source.

Some rumors have suggested Talib could make his way to the Washington Redskins if he and the Patriots are unable to agree on terms, but Talib seemed to love playing for the Patriots and assuming they stay within market value, it’s hard to imagine the veteran cornerback leaving in free agency.
