New, comments

The police department in Dallas has officially concluded its investigation, and that’s what it found.

It was reported today that the Dallas Police Department has officially concluded its investigation, and the conclusion is that Aqib Talib was not a victim of aggravated assault, as the police report originally stated in June, but that he shot himself.

This comes a few weeks after it was reported in September that Talib was not expected to be punished by the NFL, barring any new evidence uncovered.

However, these new reports do not seem to indicate that there is new evidence in the case, only that the Dallas PD has finally completed its investigation.

Who knows what to make of this, as it seemed fairly obvious from the get-go that Talib accidentally shot himself. We will see if the Dallas PD officially concluding that changes anything with the NFL.

This is an unfortunate hiccup in what has been an amazing season for Talib and the Denver Broncos so far.

Stay tuned.
