Athletes generally seem to love tattoos, and Lions WR Chaz Schilens is no different. CBS Sports is reporting that Schilens spent time this off season getting a giant back tattoo of a tiger. A tiger you may wonder. Doesn’t Schilens play for the Lions after all? Paula Pasche was able to catch it up close and she tweeted this:

So now that Schilens has placed a large Bengal tiger on his body, what will the Lions organization do? A trade to the Bengals is highly unlikely but would make the most sense to fit the player and tattoo with the right organization. Lions fans may also take offense, but that is Schilens’ burden to bare.

Chaz Schilens has struggled to latch on to a team in the NFL since being selected in the 7th-round of the 2008 Draft. He signed with the Lions just prior to training camp, and he has a very small chance of making their active roster. Regardless, while teammate Calvin Johnson is the greatest player on the team, Schilens has the most amazing tattoo on the team, and quite possibly the...
Lions wide receiver Chaz Schilens got a tiger tattoo that covers his entire back.
Larry Brown Sports has the story.
According to Paula Pasche of The Oakland Press, the tattoo took 24 hours total to complete and had Schilens in the tattoo parlor on three separate occasions. While I don’t really understand the significance of the jungle-themed ink, I suppose it’s a good thing...
Detroit Lions wide receiver Chaz Schilens recently got a massive tattoo on his back, and the only things missing are Mowgli and Baloo. We have to assume he was going for a “The Jungle Book” theme, because he opted for a tiger over a lion and we hope he’s not showing support for the Cincinnati [...]

Welcome to our 2013 Lions Team Preview. To get a better understanding of what each NFL team might be up to this season we are asking local team bloggers to answer a few questions for us. We talked to Zac Snyder the NFL Editorial Director for fansided.com, and Lions blogger for Side Lion Report, to get the inside scoop. Follow him at @ZacSnyder and check out his work.
Herman Moore was my favorite wide receiver growing up. Calvin Johnson gets the nod for all-time favorite wide receiver nowadays, but Moore will always have a special place in my heart. That's why it was especially neat to see him catch a touchdown pass from my favorite Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford during training camp this past week.
See for yourself:
Darius Slay is a rookie cornerback for the Detroit Lions, and even though he’s young enough to not know the full history of the NFL, he has some football knowledge.
