Shaun Rogers has $500K of jewelry stolen in Miami


From the “NFL players lead very different lives than you and me” file, we bring you the story of Giants defensive tackle Shaun Rogers.

CBS Miami, via the Miami Beach Police, reports that Rogers was staying at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach this weekend and went out with some friends to the hotel’s nightclub. He and the group returned to the room around 7 a.m. with a woman they met at the club in tow. Upon returning, Rogers put his jewelry in the room safe and found that neither the jewels nor the woman were there when he woke up at 12:30 p.m.

It was a costly loss for Rogers, who does not travel light when it comes to jewelry. Per the report, Rogers lost diamond earrings worth $100,000; two wristwatches worth a combined $160,000; a gold necklace with gold pendant worth $50,000; gold bracelets worth $60,000; and a diamond Cuban necklace with a gold pendant worth $70,000.

That’s $500,000 worth of jewelry, a good bit more than most of us likely bring out for even the biggest night on the town. No word on whether or not Rogers had insured the items, but we certainly hope so because we’re not sure his deal with the Giants is going to pay enough for him to come up with replacements for what’s been lost.

    Shaun, you can’t enter the code in the hotel safe while she’s watching! Idiot. For more than one reason. Their club closes at 5am, what were you doing for those two hours 🙂

    This must be the explination as to why he packs heat.

    Just retire and hop on the concussion lawsuit.

    Hope he had fun with her before he passed out… that’s an expensive date.

  7. essentialsausage says: Mar 26, 2013 9:37 AM

    He’ll be broke a few years after he’s out of the NFL.

  8. punksinplay says: Mar 26, 2013 9:37 AM

    5 years from now we’ll read about how broke he is.

  9. fin72 says: Mar 26, 2013 9:41 AM

    That’s what you get for being an idiot. In the end it really doesn’t matter because this guy will be completely broke 1 year after his career is over. What a big dumb animal…

  10. bspurloc says: Mar 26, 2013 9:41 AM

    Ah that is why they arent millionaires after making millions….

  11. andyreidsskinnyjeans says: Mar 26, 2013 9:44 AM

    Bankrupt in 3 years.

  12. southbeachtalent says: Mar 26, 2013 9:46 AM

    That was one expensive “date”

  13. onearmsteven says: Mar 26, 2013 9:46 AM

    slow clap for shaun

    Where’s David Caruso when you need him?

    Who says NFL players waste their money??

    You wonder why the NFL is taking steps to hope that when players retire that they still have some of the multi-millions they were paid.

    Maybe it is a good idea the NFL is holding the performace pay for 2 years…….

    99% of all athletes are money morons!

  16. crownofthehelmet says: Mar 26, 2013 9:51 AM

    You’re 5 feet wide, how do you not block everyone from seeing the safe combination as you’re opening it.

  17. titansbro says: Mar 26, 2013 9:51 AM

    He threw that money away when he bought that crap anyway. I don’t feel bad for him at all.

  18. ravenator says: Mar 26, 2013 9:55 AM

    You got punkd Rogers.

  19. abninf says: Mar 26, 2013 10:10 AM

    I bet he looked pretty wearing all that stuff. He should add some lipstick.

  20. investwax says: Mar 26, 2013 10:10 AM

    Another NFL player who needs to watch the 30 For 30 episode: Broke

  21. luckyarmpit says: Mar 26, 2013 10:22 AM

    While I respect the fact that it’s your money to spend as you wish, why on earth does anyone need $500,000 worth of jewelry? And why does one feel the need to travel with said jewelry?

    Maybe Shaun should have someone on his payroll that helps him make better decisions… such as not locking $500k worth of jewelry in a hotel safe when you’ve brought a woman you don’t know back to your hotel room at 7:00 AM Those safes are about as secure as a wet paper towel. I wouldn’t lock a toothbrush in those things, let alone jewelry.

  22. strctlylo says: Mar 26, 2013 10:24 AM

    dude, did you think she was coming home with you because of your stunning good looks or rock hard body? no wait a minute, it was your charming personality that did her in.

  23. jersey73 says: Mar 26, 2013 10:42 AM

    This is another example of the hypocrisy of some potential athletes. They’ll scream that they’ll holdout for the most money they can get because they only have a “short time to make their money”. Then they blow it on stupid stuff instead of saving all that money they make in a short career so it lasts a lifetime.

    Ultra Music Festival. Was her name Molly?

  25. steelhammer92 says: Mar 26, 2013 10:46 AM

    He can probably add a divorce from Mrs. Rogers and child support to his financial woes in the near future.

  26. mgpet says: Mar 26, 2013 10:48 AM

    Don’t you just hate when that happens?

  27. mp4philly says: Mar 26, 2013 10:52 AM

    Happens all the time to these idiots and apparently from the same group of women. Lesean McCoy got ‘got’ two years ago in the same fashion.

  28. j4man1 says: Mar 26, 2013 11:10 AM

    Sorry I still only come up with $440,000. Why did he think she left with him? She must have been really wasted.

  29. scoops1 says: Mar 26, 2013 11:18 AM

    WMC week always bring out the scumbags….

  30. jaketdogg says: Mar 26, 2013 11:38 AM

    That’s what happens when you enter 1,2,3,4 as your passcode, Shaun. Learn to count past 5, and you can head fake those bottle rats you bring back to the room!

  31. tsizzlesucks says: Mar 26, 2013 12:02 PM

    And people actually wonder why players are broke shortly after they retire. This guy will be looking for 2 nickles to rub together to make a dime before he’s 40. What a shame! He’s probably a father, too. Another shining example for young black youth to emulate.

  32. justintuckrule says: Mar 26, 2013 12:04 PM

    Who did he bring back to the room, catwoman?

  33. steelerben says: Mar 26, 2013 12:21 PM

    Who hasn’t had a skank they brought home from the club make off with the contents of their wallet and medicine cabinet? He just had a little more to steal. (And probably a better looking thief).

  34. thegreatgabbert says: Mar 26, 2013 12:23 PM

    Shaun had a few too many, and put the money in the microwave by mistake, thinking it was the safe after twirling the dials around a few times.

  35. landof10000lakes says: Mar 26, 2013 12:45 PM

    Just goes to show you that nothing good happens after 7 am….

  36. aciraci says: Mar 26, 2013 1:06 PM

    Well, he DID sign for the minimum this year.

    An insurance claim for another $500K cash is a quick way to convert a $700K salary into $1.2 Mil.

  37. cantgetenoughwp says: Mar 26, 2013 1:53 PM

    The girl is crafty, she knows all the moves
    I started playing records, she knew all the grooves He thought she was a thief and D was right
    But I just figured she’d spend the night

  38. patriotenvy says: Mar 26, 2013 11:14 PM

    Like George Castanza tied up in his boxers, was he thinking “will I see you again?”

  39. mikeyarch53 says: Mar 27, 2013 6:51 AM

    Anyone here think this may have been a set up for him to make a little more cash this season? Says its stolen, yet he already sold it on the street for $50,000 and then puts the claim for $500,000 and no one need to no…? Maybe I’m over estimating how clever and smart Rodgers is? I don’t know if he’d have enough brains to come up with the plan?

    The microwave lol classic
