Aqib Talib threatens to fight Harry Douglas after cheap shot
Sunday December 11th, 2016

Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib, who scrapped with Titans wideout Harry Douglas over a dirty hit he delivered on teammate Chris Harris, says he will “beat his ass” when he sees him next.

Talib and Douglas share an agent in Todd France, so the veteran corner plans on fighting Douglas in France’s Atlanta office.

“It was a dirty play by a sorry player,” Talib said postgame. “He don’t do nothing, he comes to the game, don’t catch no passes. He comes to the game and chops guys from the back. He’s got the same agent as me, so when I see his ass in Atlanta I’m gonna beat his ass. He tried to something dirty, so that’s why I’m gonna beat his ass.”

During the second quarter of Sunday’s game, Douglas went low on Harris, leaving the defensive back rolling in pain.


​After the game, Harris wrote on Twitter that Douglas “tried to end my career,” and said he is eagerly anticipating a fine from the league office.

“I’m a tough player. I’m a gritty player,” Douglas told reporters after the game. “I’m not a dirty player no matter what anybody says.”

That led to Talib starting a brawl on the very next play when he tackled Douglas on the sideline, earning a personal foul. Apparently he’s not done getting shots in.
