A Lion meets some lions

I can't recall meeting Detroit linebacker/special-teams ace Zack Follett last season, but following him on Twitter and checking out his blog reveals him to be a bit, well, nutty. And I mean that in the nicest way possible.

In the latest video post, Follett steps into an actual lion cage to learn how to, in his word, be more "aggressive." (And also to promote the charitable Cat Haven in Fresno, Calif.)

Follett is no dummy, of course. He strapped on his helmet just before one of the Lions, er lions, lunged at him. Good stuff from a character of the NFC North.
