After spending nine seasons at offensive tackle, Bears left tackle Jermon Bushrod thinks he can be a tight end.

The 6-foot-5, 315-pound tackle, who started 14 games in 2014, would be the largest tight end in the league, but as he said in his Instagram post, he’s going after Bears tight end Martellus Bennett for the No. 1 spot.

Bushrod recorded himself in a swimming pool catching a football. If that doesn’t justify him being able to be a NFL tight end, I don’t know what would.

Bennett responded to Bushrod and called the nine-year veteran a beluga whale in the pool.
