Talib was a first-round pick of the Buccaneers; Boyd was a seventh-round selection of the same team.The players were in a budget and finances meeting, where rookies from four teams were gathered. Talib and Boyd had been jawing at each other for a while, and it came to a head during that specific session.Few are surprised by the development. Boyd was suspended by South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier in 2005. Boyd was forced to apologize upon returning in 2006, after scoring a touchdown and uttering for the camera, Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m back! IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m back liked cooked crack.TalibÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s draft stock fell due to repeated positive drug test results while at Kansas. As one league source explained Talib to us on Wednesday night, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Trouble just follows Talib. . . . He canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t help himself, and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s never his fault.Ã¢â‚¬ÂItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s unknown whether the players were or will be disciplined. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
