Aqib Talib signs with Denver Broncos

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Aqib Talib has signed with the Broncos.

The Denver Broncos are a championship contender with a small window, so it shouldn't come as a surprise they're bolstering their roster to give themselves the best chance to win it all in 2014.

Cornerback is their biggest area of need, and they've signed one of the top CBs on the market in Aqib Talib:

The New England Patriots were reportedly close to re-signing Talib, but it appears the Broncos one-upped them at the last second. Talib signed a one-year, $5 million deal last offseason to stay with the Patriots after being traded by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before the 2012 midseason trade deadline.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Talib, 28, recorded 41 tackles and four interceptions in 13 games of action last season. With him now in the Broncos secondary, they'll hopefully be able to avoid another 43-8 beatdown at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks if the two teams make it to the Super Bowl again.

Both teams figure to be the favorites to win their conferences, and the Broncos will have an easier path now that they've stolen arguably the best player from their biggest nemesis.
