One of the big storylines for this offseason regarding the New England Patriots is the small army of significant players that are poised to hit free agency unless the club ponies up a new contract (or uses its franchise tag, though there can be only one franchise taggee). Amongst those key players is CB Aqib Talib, who the club acquired in exchange for its fourth-round selection in the 2013 draft, and who instantly improved the secondary upon arrival. In fact, it was his exit from the AFC championship game that proved to be a turning point in the Ravens' win over New England.
