Aqib Talib calls Rams secondary 'probably the best' he's played in

Aqib Talib knows a good defense when he sees one. Having played for two top teams in the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos, Talib is familiar with lining up in some of the best secondaries in the league.

Now a member of the Los Angeles Rams, Talib has a chance to carry on that tradition by joining Marcus Peters, Lamarcus Joyner, John Johnson and several others in the secondary. Despite parting ways with Trumain Johnson, Kayvon Webster and Cody Davis this offseason, the Rams are absolutely loaded in the defensive backfield and look even stronger on paper than they were in 2017.


Talib was asked how this unit compares to the Super Bowl-winning group he was a part of in Denver, but he didn’t take the bait.


He did, however, say this is probably the best secondary he’s ever been in.

“I’ve been in some great, great secondaries, but top to bottom, with depth, this is probably the best one I’ve played in,” Talib said, via USA TODAY. “The sky’s the limit, we just have to be on our stuff. Be in meetings on time, get sleep at night. The talent is there, you just have to do the extra stuff.”

Considering the amount of talent the Rams have at both cornerback and safety, it’s hard to argue against Talib’s point. Add in the fact that they also have Sam Shields, Troy Hill and several others deeper down the depth chart and you’d be hard-pressed to find a group better than this one.

Whether that translates to wins or another Super Bowl title for Talib remains to be seen, but the talent is absolutely there. They just have to capitalize on it.
