After the Jacksonville Jaguars beat down the Houston Texans on Sunday to the tune of 45-7, Texans defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney said that Bortles was still “trash” when asked about his development. That’s just a little salty from a player who left the field more times injured than he made tackles in the game. The comments don’t seem to bother Bortles, though.

"I could care less. If how we're playing and how I'm playing -- if that's 'trash,' then I'm fine with being 'trash.'"#Jaguars
Be the trash man, Blake!
Actually, “Trash Man” would be a pretty great nickname for Blake Bortles.
