According to Black Sports Online, Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett has a pet tiger named “Lil Buddy.”
“I’m trying to bring him to training camp,” Dockett said, FOX Sports 910 in Phoenix. “I don’t know if they’ll let me, but we’re going to see.”
Dockett says his tiger weighs about 60 pounds and is “very chill, very playful.” I would love to see how long that lasts.
Dockett also claims he offered to buy a monkey for $30,000, but it didn’t work out.
“I didn’t buy the pet monkey,” he said. “The dude would not sell it. I offered him a price that the only other person who would offer him that much is probably Michael Jackson, rest in peace, but he wouldn’t even entertain my offer when it came to the monkey.”
I’m not kidding when I say, I hope Dockett doesn’t get eaten.
