San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined Bussin’ with Boys podcast, which includes linebacker Will Compton from the Las Vegas Raiders and offensive tackle Taylor Lewan from the Tennessee Titans. Kittle hilariously recalls the times when ESPN called him “Greg.” Once? Freudian slip. Something else was on your mind. It happens. Three times? You have to be trolling at this point.

When asked who was the toughest player he’s ever had to block, Kittle said, “Khalil Mack is pretty tough. Clowney is pretty good too [laughing hysterically.] If you remember Clowney’s big hit in college that some think got him drafted so high, the trio talks about that play as well since Lewan was the left tackle. It’s funny hearing them discuss the play because neither the tight end or Lewan will take the blame for whose fault it was.

Kittle’s drink of choice? Tequila and pineapple juice. Lewan said, “there’s a lot of sugar in that,” which led to Kittle responding, “Yeah, I know, but it’s juice, so then I feel healthy.” Only Kittle.
