Why does Sitton always touch Dietrich-Smith's butt?

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Dec 2, 2013

There are traditions in Green Bay Packers football, like the national anthem, the coin toss, the Lambeau Leap, the "Bang the Drum" song.

And Packers guard Josh Sitton touching the butt of center Evan Dietrich-Smith during every offensive huddle.

"I feel weird if he doesn't do it now.  Super weird," said Dietrich-Smith about the tradition on "Packers Live," which airs on TODAY'S TMJ4 and NBC26.

Why does Sitton do it?  Dietrich-Smith ventured a guess.

"Josh is really OCD about things, putting your sock this foot first before that one.  It doesn't bother me at all.  He did it to (former center Scott Wells) before me, Jeff (Saturday)."
