Aqib Talib will not be suspended or fined by the National Football League after shooting himself in the leg at a Dallas strip club previous year, according to a USA Today report Tuesday.

The NFL determined that Talib's behavior was detrimental to the league and issued a warming to the four-time Pro Bowler.

Crucial in NFL's investigation into Aqib Talib: firearm wasn't illegally possessed.

Talib will have to provide a list of all firearms that he owns and documentation verifying that he has completed an approved firearms safety course, according to ESPN. Talib wasn't charged with a crime in the incident.

The failed North Korean missile test over the weekend was an attempt by the reclusive country to " provoke something ", U.S. Mattis mentioned the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un while traveling to Saudi Arabia for weeklong tour of the Middle East.

Talib shot himself in the right leg in on June 5 and spent only one night in the hospital and didn't need surgery.

Talib joined infamous former Giants star Plaxico Burress on the short list of National Football League players to accidentally shoot themselves while out on the town, but the Denver corner has received a more favorable outcome.

The first news of the day came from inside the UCHealth Training Center as it was reported that the Broncos are expected to pick up the fifth-year option of cornerback Bradley Roby. He had two tackles and defended three passes in the Broncos win over the Panthers.

Regardless of Talib's vast success in his three years since joining the team as a free agent in 2014 and even the recent news that Bradley Roby's fifth-year option will be picked up, expect the Broncos to target the cornerback position in the draft ten days from now, perhaps just to add depth or prepare for the future.
