The fight between Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree and Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib continues to live on. The latest breaking news is Crabtree reportedly taped his gold chain on knowing Talib’s fetish for stealing gold chains.
We are not kidding. ESPN’s Adam Schefter shared this latest tidbit.
Raiders’ WR Michael Crabtree taped his chain to himself before Sunday’s game, knowing he was facing the chain-snatching Broncos CB Aqib Talib. And Talib still got it.

When the two players faced each other in January of 2017, Talib yanked Crabtree’s signature gold chain from his neck.

Apparently, Crabtree did not use strong enough tape in his preparation to face Talib. Maybe Super Glue is in order for the next time the two square off.
But in all seriousness, both Crabtree and Talib face a potential suspension for their roles in the mahem.
Needless to say, both players let their teammates down with their unprofessional behavior on Sunday.
