Titans’ Jurrell Casey Fires Shots at Blake Bortles: “He’s Going to Choke”

Jurrell Casey is the latest defensive lineman from the AFC South to bark at Blake Bortles, as he called the Jaguars quarterback a choker during an appearance on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville. The Titans play the Chiefs in this weekend’s Wild Card round, but Casey clearly had some things to get off his chest:

“As long as Bortles is back there, if the ball game is in his hands, he’s going to choke…” – @Jurrellc on #3HL.

You may remember Jadeveon Clowney called Bortles “trash” a few weeks ago, and that was after the Jaguars lit up the Texans. Casey on the other hand can back up the trash talk, his Titans swept the Jaguars this season — and he thinks they should have won the division based on that alone:

“We’re going to sweep the division other than losing to Houston. But we can’t win the division. That’s the part that sucks. They won’t even technically beat us & win the division. It is what it is. They’re supposed to be king of the South & we’re ready to see that.” – @Jurrellc pic.twitter.com/RGZY9Eo4nF

He backtracked on his Bortles stance a bit on Twitter:

Chill, y’all. I was just hyping our defense. If we put the pressure, some QBs will choke.#OnToKC#TitanUp https://t.co/tWnuLPXK2X
