Random offseason tweet of the day: Daniel Rodriguez has Clemson paw taillights

Welcome to our Dr. Saturday feature titled "Random offseason tweet of the day." With real games still months away, coaches and players will be tweeting about non-football-related things as the season approaches. In this space, we'll try to find the funniest and goofiest tweets of the day. If you see something, don't hesitate to send it to us.

There are probably few players more appreciative for their limited playing time than 26-year-old Clemson wide receiver Daniel Rodriguez simply because of the long road he took to get to the college gridiron.

And now he’s showing his Clemson pride with a pair of custom tiger paw taillights.

Clemson wide receivers coach Jeff Scott snapped a shot of the taillights and posted it to Twitter. We’re not sure if they’re street legal, but they look sharp on Rodriguez’s motorcycle.

I’m sure there now will be a rush on these across the Clemson sections of South Carolina and bans on them in the Gamecock country.

Rodriguez, you might remember, was discharged from the Army after being wounded in the Battle of Kamdesh in Afghanistan in 2009. He was awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze Star Medal. After leaving the Army, his dream was to play college football. So he went through a tryout with Clemson and walked-on thanks to college funding from the GI Bill.

The redshirt junior has played sparingly, but one of the highlights of his career came last season when he scored his first career touchdown against The Citadel.
