Texans' Brian Cushing morning beverage sounds intense (and gross)

BY Jimmy Traina • January 8, 2016

Brian Cushing has quite a relationship with coffee.

Over the summer, the Texans linebacker famously said on "Hard Knocks" that he used to go to Starbucks, but then he realized he "wasn't a chick."

Yes, Cushing thinks only females drink beverages from Starbucks.

That brings us to what kind of coffee Cushing does drink.

In a new ESPN feature, we learn that he downs cold coffee with half a stick of butter in it every morning.

Apparently this is a thing, and it's known as Bulletproof Coffee. The theory, using grass-fed unsalted butter, is that the drink will help you burn fat for energy all day long.
