Jadeveon Clowney Fills Trolling Fans' Trash Cans with Toys for the Homeless

It's the holiday season, and Houston Texans defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney went from Grinch to a gracious giver in a few days.

After the Texans' 45-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 15, Clowney called Jags quarterback Blake Bortles "trash" when asked about his recent improvements, per Houston Chronicle reporter Brian Smith: 

Bortles took the high road in response, per ESPN.com reporter Michael DiRocco: 

Jaguars fans took another road and decided to send trash cans to NRG Stadium: 

Nonetheless, Clowney flipped the situation when he decided to fill the trash cans and an entire truck with toys for The Mission of Yahweh, a Houston faith-based shelter that provides resources for homeless children, women and outreach services for low-income families.

What started as a petty shot at Bortles turned into something greater for a good cause. Clowney may not recant his statement, but he's doing the right thing in helping the less fortunate.
