The Broncos say former Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib was released from a hospital and recovering after he was shot in the lower right leg early Sunday at a Dallas strip club.
Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth said the team has been in touch with Talib, 30, and that he was okay.
Dallas police said a customer pulled a gun about 2:45 a.m. inside the V Live strip club, according to the Dallas Morning News. Three people were shot, police said.
Talib, who grew up in Texas, played with Tampa Bay from 2008, when he was drafted in the first round, to 2012, when the Bucs traded him to the Patriots partway into the season while he was under league suspension for violating performance-enhancing substance policy. In 2009, Talib was jailed on charges of simple battery and resisting arrest without violence after he was accused of punching a taxi driver in St. Petersburg.
In 2011 he was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in Texas, along with his mother, but the charge was dropped.
