On today's Pardon My Take… BLAKE BORTLES! The recently retired NFL Quarterback joined Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter for an exclusive interview regarding his decision to walk away from football, what he plans on doing next, some reminiscing with the PMT crew, and much more. 

In his eight seasons as a quarterback in the NFL, Blake Bortles' estimated career earnings totaled $47,658,598. The guys discussed that number on today's show, and Blake had a very Blake response to the amount of money he has made playing professional football. Take a look:


Mr. Cat: Do you know how much money you made in the NFL? It's pretty cool.

Blake Bortles: Uh, no. I mean, I know, like, contractually what I made, but I didn't get, like, the back half of my second contract here. And then taxes. Do you know the exact number?

Mr. Cat: It says 47 million. That's fucking awesome.

Blake Bortles: Sounds right, man. That's awesome. You know, just good enough to steal some money.

Mr. Commenter: How cool was that fifth year?

Mr. Cat: Yeah, that's pretty fucking sweet. Like when you say it and you're just like, "Oh yeah, I did make 47 million in like seven years of work." That's pretty fucking sweet!

Blake Bortles: That's right, suck it, nerds!

Mr. Cat: That's right, score one for the good guys. Love it, I fucking love it.

There is nothing more Blake Bortles than saying, "SUCK IT, NERDS!" What a career for the BOAT. Be sure to listen to the entire interview for a deep dive on all of the memories that Bortles, Mr. Cat, Mr. Commenter, and Hank have made over the years.
