Jordan has the last laugh this season, forcing an intentional grounding call late in Sunday’s game. It helped preserve the Saints’ 31-26 victory over the Panthers.
New Orleans won all three games against Carolina this season.
“You beat the Carolina Panthers three times in a year, I’m going to have to send this guy a wine bottle,” Jordan said, via Mike Triplett of ESPN. “I appreciate him, so I’m going to send him some sauce.”
Jordan was referring to his trash-talking battle with Newton earlier this season. After Jordan made fun of Newton’s choice of clothes, Newton responded, “I didn’t know he was a fan of my dress code. Honestly, he’s paying attention. Nevertheless, that’s flattering to me. If he wants to send me his address I can send him some sauce.”
On Monday, Jordan posted a photo on social media of a Jordan-brand wine bottle and a mailing label addressed to Newton.
“Who would I be if I don’t follow through on my word?” Jordan wrote in the post.
We can’t wait for Newton’s response, which hopefully comes before next season.
