The tiger, named "Little Buddy."


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?

If you're going to own a large, vicious predator as a pet, you should be required to keep a video camera rolling whenever you're interacting with it.

He needs to be locked in a room and forced to watch ESPN's 30 For 30 called BROKE.

Cats are the top predators on the planet. Even Fluffy has a brain that's wired to kill, kill, kill. And whenever this guy's supposed pet looks at him, it's sizing up a potential meal.

Do.Not.Approve. He needs to stick with the traditional "Male Over-Compensation Devices" like a Hummer or a really noisy Harley.

@valleynative Eh, I'd say you should be required to watch Siegfried and Roy taped shows over and over and ask yourself why they're FORMER entertainers.

Think of it as a warning.  It's a constant reminder that we're all expecting something newsworthy to happen.
