Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib reportedly won't stand trial for his aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge until next year.

Talib's attorney, Frank Perez, told the St. Petersburg Times on Thursday that Talib had his trial scheduled in Texas for March 26, 2012.

Police said they believe Talib and his mother, Okolo Talib, shot at his sister's boyfriend on March 21. The man was not injured.

Talib, 25, has been out on $25,000 bond since March 30.

A Garland police spokesman said in a Tampa radio interview in March that detectives had met with Talib before making the decision to charge him with a crime. The spokesman said the charge is a second-degree felony, which can carry a prison sentence of five to 20 years.

Talib, who went to L.V. Berkner High School in the Dallas suburb of Richardson, played at the University of Kansas and was a first-round pick by the Buccaneers in 2008. He has been in trouble before. He was suspended by the NFL for the first game of last season after a 2009 altercation with a cab driver.

He was entered into a pretrial diversion program and ordered to attend anger management classes after the incident with the cab driver, with whom he reached a financial settlement.

Talib has 15 interceptions in three NFL seasons.
