Blake Bortles fires back at Jadeveon Clowney's "trash" comment

They're having it delivered.

On Sunday, after the Texans lost to the Jaguars 45-7, Clowney called Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles "trash", even though Bortles threw for 326 yards and three touchdowns. Of course, fans have been eager to share photos of their gifts and their "trash-talking" messages on social media. The cans are addressed directly to Clowney, and some should start arriving before Christmas.

"It's Christmas. It's the season of giving", Bonnie Upright, a public relations professional in Jacksonville who used to work with the Blake Bortles Foundation, told ESPN. But he chose to show some salt and display hurt feelings, and Blake Bortles dunked on him for the third time this season. "Let's have a little fun with it".

"I was respectful. I didn't go at (Clowney) personally". Despite his big day, Clowney didn't have nice things to say about the Jaguars quarterback. On Friday, Clowney tweeted that he'll be filling the trash cans from Jaguars fans - and an entire truck too - with toys that he'll give to Mission of Yahweh, an emergency and transitional home in Houston for homeless women and children.

Calling a player trash after he drops over 300 yards and three touchdowns on you was foolish in itself, but Clowney set himself up to get beat by Bortles twice in a single week. Upright said Bortles' comment made her feel OK about the trash can idea.

On Wednesday, Bortles took the high road when he was informed of the comments, stating, "If how we're playing and how I'm playing, if that's trash, then I'm fine with being trash", Bortles said. "It's how we roll in the 904".
