Last weekend, Aqib Talib’s brother allegedly shot and killed a man at a youth soccer game in Texas. Aquib was there. And although he has never been charged with a crime, the situation remains chaotic, confusing and ultimately ominous.

So no student will be working at Amazon this season.

Student Ian Rapoport told NFL Media that the NFL team has been defensive for a long time will go away One of his radio duties is to spend time with his family.

It feels like the end product of a carefully manicured PR strategy. Amazon certainly didn’t want to send the Taliban on air, given the situation. The NFL certainly didn’t want Amazon to air a student, given the situation.

In the first round of the Buccaneers selection in 2008, Talib played in Tampa Bay, New England, Denver, Rams, and Dolphins.
