Aqib Talib is excited to start anew with the Los Angeles Rams. And after a wild week of trades, who could blame him?
“What better place to do it than L.A., man. With that market. With (defensive coordinator) Wade Phillips. And with a young energetic corner on the other side, man, to bring back that youth to me. A great quarterback and Todd Gurley, it’s just a great situation in my opinion.”
The Rams have plenty of depth at corner now, but that’s not all. The No. 3 offense in the NFL returns. In the meantime, remember this: the Broncos didn’t agree to send Talib to L.A. first.
An example of how simple decisions this week affect players, teams and futures.
Aqib Talib rejected a trade that was agreed to between Denver and SF; wouldn’t report. He later is traded to LA.
So SF doesn’t get its CB, Richard Sherman is released and he winds up in SF.

And while there’s no guarantee he will flourish, this is a good spot to try. After all, the Rams are coming off an NFC West title-winning season.
