Detroit Lions LB DeAndre Levy takes another wild trip

Levy skinny dipping in the Amazon.
From the looks of DeAndre Levy’s Instagram account, he’s not too concerned about signing a contract extension with the Detroit Lions.

The linebacker posted a photo of himself skinny dipping in the Amazon today (Tuesday).

 His post suggests (in adult terms) that he's no fan of pool parties and that a candiru wouldn't dare attack him. (Thanks to Wikipedia -- a candiru a toothpick fish or vampire fish -- 
is a species of parasitic freshwater
catfish native to the Amazon Basin.)

A few days ago it was sledding down a live
 volcano in Nicaragua.

The guy sure knows how to vacation.

At least both of those activities seem somewhat safer than wing-walking which he did in the spring.

Levy’s contract expires after this season and there has been interest from both sides for an extension.

Lions’ veterans report on Sunday and start training camp on Monday. Rookies reported on Tuesday.

The wing walking was impressive. Sledding down a volcano would have been, had it been erupting. Skinny dippy in the Amazon proves one thing. Even piranhas find Lion meat distasteful. But if Levy wants to take a really wild trip, he'll be on the field when the Lions win a playoff game. That would be truly incredible.
