Shutdown Corner - NFL

Needless to say, Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett(notes) is having a very interesting offseason. Just days after a police stop Dockett detailed on Twitter, he found himself in the Florida Everglades, apparently getting a very good look at some gators down there. He first shared a shot of this big croc, informing his followers that "this mofo almost bit me!"

But Dockett wasn't scared away from the alligator concept by that encounter — soon after that first tweet, he let us know that he found a new buddy.

We're not quite sure what Dockett plans to do with the gator (he did say to teammate Larry Fitzgerald(notes) that he planned to bring "Nino" to work), but perhaps this could be a way for fellow NFL player Chad Ochocinco to live out his recent croc-wrestling fantasies.
