Aqib Talib Fined for Elbow Drop Against Seahawks Seattle Sports Central
Denver Broncos corner Aqib Talib has been fined for dropping an elbow that looked like it belonged more in the WWE than an NFL game last Sunday at CenturyLink Field.
The Bronco defenders paycheck will be $8,268 lower now.

Fortunately the elbow didn’t cause an injury and the Seahawks did go on to win the game in overtime thanks to a Russell Wilson 80-yard drive on the first possession. The win put the Seahawks back on track after a week 2 loss to the Sand Diego Chargers.
Week 4 is the Seahawks bye week and the team will next travel to Washington DC to take on the Redskins on Monday Night Football.
