Who saw this coming?
Los Angeles Rams cornerback Aqib Talib and free-agent wide receiver Michael Crabtree have a checkered past that includes chains being snatched on the field, fists being thrown, and suspensions as a result.
The two enemies on the field saw no need to continue the tirade any longer after they came face-to-face at a go-kart track. Talib and his family were at Kartland in Frisco, Texas when Crabtree walked in with his family, a witness told TMZ Sports. After a few tense moments, they decided to step outside and appeared to smooth things over.

Their entire beef dates way back to 2006 when Talib ripped Crabtree’s chain from his neck during a game between the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders.

Talib snatched Crabtree’s chain again the following season as well, but it lead to an all-out brawl that got them both ejected and suspended.
