Talib to wear No. 31 with Patriots

Cornerback Aqib Talib will wear No. 31 with the Patriots.

Talib was No. 25 in Tampa, but that number is taken by safety Patrick Chung in New England.

The last player to wear No. 31 for a consistent period of time for the Patriots was safety Brandon Meriweather, the team's first-round draft choice in 2007.
