The award for best giant tiger tattoo in the NFL now belongs to Lions wide receiver Chaz Schilens.

Apparently Schilens spent some time this offseason getting the ink done. According to the Oakland (Mich.) Press, the tattoo took 24 hours, spread over three days to complete.

Lions fans are probably wondering why he didn't get a Lion, but unfortunately, we can't answer that question for you.

The simple solution here is that the Lions trade Schilens to the Bengals and the sooner they do it, the better, because this tattoo needs to be on Hard Knocks so that everyone in the country can appreciate this amazing piece of art. Schilens should also be traded to the Bengals because his tattoo is a giant bengal tiger and the Bengals are named after giant bengal tigers.

We're not sure what Schilens' favorite song is, but Eye of the Tiger has to be on the list, right?
