Saints' Jordan trolls Newton with wine bottle

From ESPN - January 8, 2018

METAIRIE, La. -- Cameron Jordan made good on his promise to send a bottle of wine to longtime rival Cam Newton as a mocking thank-you gesture after the New Orleans Saints completed a three-game sweep of the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

"Who would I be if I do not follow through on my word?" the Saints' first-team All-Pro defensive end wrote in an Instagram story that has since disappeared. The post contained a picture of the Jordan-brand wine bottle and a mailing label addressed to Newton at Panthers headquarters.

The "gift" is the latest in a growing trash-talking battle between the two Cams, who have been rivals since they were both drafted in the first round in 2011.

Earlier this season, Jordan made fun of Newton's elaborate clothing choices by referring to his "grandma hat" and his "Coachella onesie" after the Saints' Week 3 victory. And when told that Newton's outfit was actually called a romper, Jordan replied, "The romp-him? We romped him good."
