From being a lockdown cornerback on a Super Bowl-winning team to snatching chains from rival wideouts, Aqib Talib had plenty of memorable moments during his 12-year NFL career.
But on Sunday, he begins a new journey in his football life.
Talib will make his broadcasting debut this weekend as the color commentator on FOX for the Washington Football Team's Week 10 matchup with the Detroit Lions.
