On January 1, 2017, Aqib Talib ripped Crabtree's chain off his neck during the Bronco's 24-6 victory over the Raiders. Crabtree didn't retaliate, which was a break from how he possibly would have acted in his first few years in the league. He's active on twitter and his handle is @KingCrab15. He also has an instagram account, which is also kingcrab15. If you're interested in buying his jersey, you can find it on nflshop.com.
