NFL teams need some sort of policy for players having guns:

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were left to contemplate a future without one of their best young players Tuesday after a felony arrest warrant was issued Tuesday for starting cornerback Aqib Talib in connection with a shooting incident in Texas.

Talib, a first-round NFL draft pick in 2008, is expected to turn himself in later this week on a warrant of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after police in Garland, Texas, say he attempted to pistol-whip and fired shots at his sister’s boyfriend. Bail will be set at $25,000.

The charge, a second-degree felony, carries a punishment of five to 20 years in prison, police said. “We are deeply troubled by the serious charges filed against Aqib Talib,” Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik said in an emailed statement. “Due to current labor circumstances, we will withhold any further comment or action.”

Wow. We’re interested in how this will pan out.
