After Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett scored himself a baby tiger as a pet, the wild former Florida State star expressed an interest in actually bringing it with him to practice.

Whelp, sure as schnitzel, Dockett shocked the team’s security guard when he showed up to the Cardinals’ training facility with Little Buddy in tow.

With Seattle and San Francisco both harboring Super Bowl aspirations, winning the NFC West would be pretty shocking, admittedly.

But bringing a baby tiger to a football practice? I mean, you’re just not going to see that everyday.
