Jadeveon Clowney was considered the top defensive free agent this past offseason, yet due to his contractual demands, he never got the long-term deal he was seeking. He had to settle for a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans.

While there's no denying Clowney is a physical freak, and has surely shown sack potential before, he hasn't of late. He managed just 3 sacks last season with the Seattle Seahawks, and in four games with the Titans this season, Clowney has still yet to record a single sack.

Well, his former Seahawks teammate Bruce Irvin took to Twitter to remind everyone of this fact.

Irvin also has zero sacks this season, but he only played two games before being placed on the injured reserve with a torn ACL. It seems there is clearly some bad blood left in Seattle if Irvin is taking what seems like an unprovoked shot at Clowney.

Neither the Titans' nor Seahawks' defenses have been overly impressive this season, but despite that, both teams head into Week 6 with undefeated records.

It will be interesting to see if this early-season trash talk comes back to bite Irvin in the end, and if we get a response from Clowney, on or off the field.
