There’s still a lot of decent people in the NFL, despite certain players divisive practice of protesting during the national anthem.
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles, through his own foundation, provided meals on Monday for first responders to the tragic shootings that took place at a “Madden: NFL 19” video game tournament in Jacksonville on Sunday.
Along with the meals, Bortles wrote a hand-written letter to the first responders, thanking them “for everything that [they] do!”
Here’s a tweet from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office thanking Bortles, his foundation and the restaurant where the food came from for their “kindness”:
Big shout out to Blake Bortles, @BB5Foundation, and Mambos Cuban Cafe for delivering all of this food to the officers that have been working the recent tragedy. It’s been a long couple days and we are so appreciative for your kindness. Thank you. pic.twitter.com/pd4n4FHBKI— Jax Sheriff's Office (@JSOPIO) August 28, 2018
“Thank you for everything that you do!” Bortles wrote. “Your service today & and everyday is greatly appreciated!”
The Blake Bortles Foundation’s Twitter page responded to a tweet from the Fraternal Order of Police in Jacksonville:
It’s the bravery and courage that’s unanimously displayed for our community that we value the most! Thank you again to everyone who’s done and continuous to do their part for #Jacksonville! #JaxStrong https://t.co/R9yW9Z8Gcf— Blake Bortles Foundation (@BB5Foundation) August 27, 2018
Amen! It doesn’t look like Bortles will be taking a knee to protest “police brutality” anytime soon.
