Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Aqib Talib has trial set for March

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib's legal suit won't be settled until after the 2011 season.

Talib, who was indicted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, had his trial set for March 26, 2012, according to attorney Frank Perez.

By delaying the completion of the case, it may boster Talib's chances of being on the field for the Bucs this season.

However, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has said players who violate the personal conduct policy during the lockout must be subject to discipline. Goodell does not have to wait until the case is resolved if he chooses to issue sanctions on Talib, who was suspended for the first game of 2010 for assaulting a cab driver earlier.
