Darnell Dockett has proven himself to have quite a taste for the lavish. Whether he’s dishing hits on the field or coolin’ at the crib, the Arizona Cardinals defensive star is always doing it big. Just follow him on Instagram to find out.
Upon initial review, you would think he’s pretty much like every other NFL star in the game today — rich, flashy and enjoying life. Nothing wrong with that. Upon further look, however, you will quickly learn that this is a man with the utmost taste and elegance.
Need more proof of this? Just take a look at his pet tiger friend, who he proudly displays for his followers. Now this is wild. Not many, if any, players in the league can say that they have a pet like this. Darnell is truly, in every sense of the word, Elite.
These images can be confirmed after a recent interview with Fox Sports 910 Phoenix, where Dockett admitted that he has a new pet tiger named Lil Buddy.
“I’m trying to bring him to training camp,” Dockett said. “I don’t know if they’ll let me, but we’re going to see.”
According to Darnell, 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. Probably because of the fact that he already had a tiger in his house.
“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.”
Yeah, this guy is the man. Darnell Dockett, we salute you!
