New Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell has had a weird start to his tenure in Detroit.
In his introductory presser, Campbell opted to speak on how he plans to have his team rip out opponents’ knee caps rather than speaking on how he’s actually going to build the Lions organization.

In his latest wild statement, Campbell is now revealing that he has been lobbying to the Lions’ brass to adopt a pet Lion for him to have. He’s not even kidding.
“I would love to literally just have a pet lion,” Campbell said via TMZ Sports. “Just a legit pet lion. On a chain — a big-ass chain.”
Campbell made his wish public during an appearance on the popular Barstool Sports podcast “Pardon My Take”.

“He really is my pet,” Campbell said of how he’d treat the beast. “We just walk around the building. We go out to practice. We’re in 7-on-7. We’re behind the kicker when he’s kicking. We’re just — there we are.”
Dan Campbell would admit that the animal rights activists might be too much of an issue for the Lions to actually pull the trigger on purchasing him a pet lion.
“The problem — I don’t know if PETA is going to allow that,” Campbell said. “That’s going to be hard.”
It’s unclear if Dan Campbell’s whole tough guy act is really going to work in the NFL. But he’ll most definitely be providing us with some quality content all season long.
