Darnell Dockett is always a source of entertainment, because he's likely to do or say anything.
That apparently includes bringing a tiger to Arizona Cardinals training camp.
When the Cardinals' defensive tackle, who has more than 150,000 Twitter followers because he's willing to say just about anything at any time (including hitting on Katherine Webb, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron's girlfriend, and inviting her to a date of Wingstop and a strip club), said he bought a tiger.
With just about anything Dockett says there has to be some skepticism if he's serious, considering all the outlandish things he'll bring up on his Twitter account (and any other medium, too), but here's what he said about the baby tiger that he bought and wants to bring to training camp:

Oh, and he also unsuccessfully tried to buy a monkey for $30,000.
“I didn’t buy the pet monkey,” he said to Fox Sports 910. “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.
“Could you picture that on game days? I’m coming to the game, I have my monkey with me, he has my jersey on,” Dockett said. “Think about it. After the game, the fans see me with the monkey, ticket sales go up, Dockett jersey sales go up. Why? Because they all want to see me with the monkey.”
And, to get back to the tiger that Dockett said he's bringing to camp, he reported on Twitter of a security guard's reaction to seeing "Buddy."
"The security guard at training camp saw my tiger and said "you got to be (expletive) kidden me that's amazing," Dockett wrote.
Hey, whatever it takes to liven up training camp.
