Denver received a fifth-round pick for Talib, who was also due $11 million in salary. New England offered a late-round pick for Talib, likely a sixth, sources said.
"Aqib was a good player when we had him, and we knew the kind of player he was [when] leaving Denver," Caserio told NFL.com. "He's always had that production."
Caserio noted how both franchises will consider any avenues to improve.
"You have to be open-minded to building your team in whatever capacity," Caserio said. "There are multiple ways a player can arrive on your team. It's not necessarily how you get there, but what they do when they get there. So everybody has to understand for their individual team, what's the risk? And decide the right course of action. You take all those factors and make a good decision."
