The Denver Broncos' defense will look much different next season.
The Broncos sending Talib to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for a 5th round pick in the upcoming NFL draft. The deal will become official when the new NFL year starts on March 14.
Talib has spent the last four years with the Broncos and was a member of the Broncos No Fly Zone secondary that helped lead the team to the Super Bowl 50 title over the Carolina Panthers.
Talib singed a six-year, $57 million dollar contract with the Broncos in 2014. He was a Pro Bowler in each of his four years in Denver.
The move paves the way for Bradley Roby to take over Talib's spot as the starting cornerback opposite Chris Harris Jr.

Confirming Aqib Talib is headed to Rams per agent source. Compensation will be a late-round pick in this year's draft. Best for everyone to move on. Bring on the Bradley Roby starter era. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 9, 2018
