Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett claims he actually bought a tiger.
Dockett, who doesn't always come off as the brightest gentleman on the planet, has been tweeting out pictures of himself with the young tiger, as well as the tiger's mother, and told Fox Sports Radio that he really did buy it.
"He's very, very chill, man," Dockett told 910 AM's Mike Jurecki. "Very playful."
He estimated the tiger at about 60 pounds right now, and also has a photo (below) with the tiger's mother, which weighs around 600 pounds.
So, is it only a matter of time before Dockett gets dominated by this tiger?
