Darnell Dockett takes over The Players’ Tribune’s Twitter account

The Players’ Tribune—a website where athletes publish content to connect with fans—asked Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett to take over its Twitter account to live-tweet Saturday’s Celebrity Flag Football Challenge.

It didn’t go very well.

The takeover seemed to get off to a solid start, but things went downhill quickly.

Once Dockett took the reins, he began by talking about an “old lady” who was nice enough to give him a sip of her coffee.  


That was just the tip of the iceberg, though. Dockett then commented on the Patriots cheerleaders, and how they compare to the type of women he’s interested in. Spoiler alert: He likes weaves.


Dockett then mixed it up a bit and posted a photo with his agent, Drew Rosenhaus.

Unfortunately, only the Rosenhaus tweet currently remains on the website’s Twitter page, as the other two have since been deleted.

This outcome shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Anyone who follows Dockett on social media knows he’s an “unfiltered” type of guy. But it was funny to watch the event unfold.
