RTC: Gators are no joke for Bortles

5/30/2014

Being an athlete featured on TMZ.com is normally a bad thing. Not so for Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles and receiver Marqise Lee.

TMZ Sports caught up with the two in Los Angeles International Airport on their way to the NFLPA's Rookie Premiere. It wasn't an ambush interview and the subject was pretty benign: alligators.

The two were asked if they were afraid of being attacked by an alligator in their new city. Lee, a Los Angeles native, laughs at the question. Bortles, who grew up in Orlando, had a tale to tell of coming pretty close to a gator when he was younger.

Here's the clip.
