The Denver Broncos made one of the biggest moves of free agency this offseason when they signed veteran cornerback Aqib Talib to bolster their secondary. Talib can now boast about the fact that he's been associated with the two greatest quarterbacks from this generation, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.

But who does he think is better?

After being named to the NFL Network's Top 100 list at no. 79, Talib sat down for a reaction piece in which he revealed that while Brady will always be his friend, he's now playing with the best in the business.

“You gotta go Peyton Manning [in Brady vs. 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.”

Also in the interview, Talib was asked about the team giving big money to Darrelle Revis as opposed to just giving him a long-term deal, and he immediately pointed the finger toward head coach Bill Belichick just wanting to have Revis around more than him.

“Bill sure didn’t want to give me that money so hey man, he gave it to Revis. It is what it is.”

Now if Belichick did want to give him that money, would the QB answer be a tad different?
