When the Arizona Cardinals hold their first training camp workout of 2013 Friday in Glendale, there will be plenty of former Tigers on the field.
Quarterback Carson Palmer wore the jersey of the Cincinnati Bengals for seven years.
Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, Kevin Minter and Curtis Taylor were all LSU Tigers in their college days, whereas Andre Ellington and Jaron Brown played for the Clemson Tigers.
But if defensive tackle Darnell Dockett has his way, there will be a current tiger at Cards Camp.

Of course, nobody knows if this will really take place — one would think there would be some sort of rule against bringing a jungle cat to practice.
But we are talking about Dockett here, the same man who tweeted out a video of him in the shower and who propositioned Oprah on social media, so anything is possible.
Aren’t you glad football season is here?
