This was what Talib told NFL Network (via CSN New England Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran) in the aftermath of him being named 79th best player in the league: 

"Aqib Talib landed at No. 79 on the NFL Network's list of the 100 Top Players of 2014 recently. 

"On the reaction show following his unveiling, the former Patriot and current Bronco opined on all the pertinent topics involving his new and former teams. 

"Locker room vibe: 'It's definitely a different scenery (in Denver).'

"His placement on the list: 'When it comes to the cornerbacks man, it only should be about four cornerbacks who you could even consider in front of me. Pat Pete (Patrick Peterson). Joe Haden, (Richard) Sherman and (Darrelle) Revis.'

"Interactions with Wes Welker in Denver: 'Man, me and Wes we good, man. It's a football play, man. It just so happened it happened on a stage in the AFC Championship Game. I watched the play 1,000 times. I'm sure Wes didn't do it on purpose.'

"On the contract Revis signed with New England: 'Bill sure didn't want to give me that money so hey man, he gave it to Revis. It is what it is.'

"Finally, Manning vs. Brady: 'You gotta go Peyton Manning. Tom is a good friend of mine, what's up Tom, baby. (Manning) had an awesome year. He tore it up. He like set the record for touchdowns. 

"'He beat Tom in the AFC Championship. You gotta give it to Peyton. Tom know that's my dog man, he know.'"

In a separate development, an autographed Broncos jersey of Manning will be auctioned at a Columbia, Tenn. banquet hosted by one of its local baseball teams, per The Columbia Daily Herald

"A Peyton Manning autographed Denver Broncos jersey will be auctioned during Saturday's 'First Pitch' banquet hosted by Columbia Post 19 American Legion baseball team. 

"The Post 19 'First Pitch' banquet is scheduled for Saturday at the Herbert Griffin American Legion building at 812 Nashville Highway. 

"A few pieces of sports memorabilia will be auctioned off highlighted by a Peyton Manning autographed jersey. Persons buying auctioned items have $40 of each $50 tax deductible."

The 38-year-old Manning is entering his 16th NFL season. He has amassed 64,964 passing yards, 491 touchdowns and 219 interceptions on a 97.2 passer rating in 240 career games, per ESPN stats
