Cardinals’ Darnell Dockett Has A Pet Tiger, Tried To Spend $30k On A Monkey


Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle is a different type of cat, with different interest, hobbies, and idea.

While some guys choose to collect cars, or watches, or hit the clubs, Dockett enjoys alligators, guns, and being eccentric.  During an interview with Fox Sports 910 Phoenix, Dockett admitted that he has a new pet tiger named Lil Buddy.

“I’m trying to bring him to training camp,” he said. “I don’t know if they’ll let me, but we’re going to see.”

Dockett said the tiger weighs about 60 pounds and is “very chill, very playful.”  Dockett also admitted he made an offer of $30,000 for a pet monkey, but the monkey’s current owner wouldn’t consider it.

“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.”

Like I said, Dockett is a different type of cat, no pun intended.
