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.
