(USA Today Sports Images)There's a reason Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett has about 170,000 followers on Twitter. He'll say just about anything at any time. There's not much filter.
Thank goodness there's still someone like him in sports.
"Anybody that knows Darnell Dockett — the real me, not just the football player, not just the guy you see on TV — anyone that knows me personally knows there is never a dull moment in my life," Dockett told XTRA Sports 910 in Phoenix. "I’m always excited. I’m always thinking of the next gimmick, the next trick."
We believe it.
On this radio interview Dockett talked about his Twitter flirting with Katherine Webb during the BCS Championship Game, which hilariously included invitations to Wingstop and a strip club, and how he could have had Miss Alabama/Crimson Tide QB A.J. McCarron's girlfriend/Brent Musburger's crush if he really wanted - but she's not his type.
Take it away, Darnell:
“If I really wanted to get his girl there’s a bunch of different ways I’d have went about it. And I would have got her if I really wanted her. But I don’t think she’s my type. I’m not into the thinner girls and the modelling thing like that. I like hood chicks. I like girls with a couple stab wounds, bullet holes, been knocked up a few times. … I like girls who you know have bad credit when they’re 21.”
The guy really needs to come out of his shell.
Dockett talked about less important, and less hilarious, issues on the show. He talked about new Cardinals coach Bruce Arians and how he had talked to people around the league about him and everyone said he was a good guy. And Dockett being Dockett, he found a way to make his first impression with the new boss into a funny story.
(A) couple days ago I got a text message from somebody and I was like, ‘Who is this?’ and they was like, ‘Hey, hit me up. It’s B.A. Give me a call. I want to talk to you ASAP.’ And I’m looking at the text message like, ‘I don’t even know who this is; I’m not calling them back.’ So the next day I get a text message and it’s like, ‘This is your coach. Give me a call. I want to check in with you.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, shoot. New coach.’ I’m used to getting those messages from Whiz.
Get ready, Bruce. You're gonna have some interesting times coaching Mr. Dockett.
