Aqib Talib on Marquice Cole: ‘Cash that check, baby’

01.15.14 at 8:28 pm ET

FOXBORO — Aqib Talib is happy for ex-teammate Marquice Cole.

Cole, who signed with the Broncos Tuesday after spending nearly two seasons with the Patriots, was still a popular player in the Patriots locker room on Wednesday despite the fact that he’ll be on the opposing sideline for Sunday’s AFC title game, and especially with Talib.

‘€œThat’€™s my dog,’€ Talib said of the 30-year-old Cole, who has played 64 career games and totaled 36 tackles with four interceptions and 14 pass breakups to go with 51 special-teams stops.

Cole was cut by the Patriots and out of the game for a couple of weeks before the Broncos picked him up Tuesday. While a few fans harassed Cole on Twitter for the decision, Talib said it was OK with him.

“Cash that check, baby,” he said with a smile when asked about Cole. “Got to pay the bills, man.’€

Talib said he wasn’t worried about Cole potentially divulging any secrets to the Broncos.

“Quice can’t tell Peyton Manning nothing that Peyton Manning doesn’t already know about us,” he said.
