Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive lineman Caleb Benenoch and Detroit Lions defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson have been sued over a debt regarding an outstanding bill at a Los Angeles club.

According to TMZ, Benenoch and Robinson racked up a bill of $9,332 at Hyde night club in March only to find themselves unable to pay when their credit cards were declined. Richard Harrington, who was invited by the pair to the club that night, offered to pick up the tab with the promise of repayment from the two players.

Instead, the claim says each player only paid him $2,000, leaving him with over $5,000 remaining for the bill. The report says the players refuse to pay the remaining sum.

Benenoch told ESPN.com that he believes he’s fulfilled his obligation.

We did our part,” he said.

“This is all I’m really going to say on it — I’m focused on football. I’m not really worried about what they’ve got going on. The legal system is going to play itself out. I’m focused on what we’ve got going on here.”

Robinson declined to comment to ESPN.

  1. $25 for steak dinner , 5 beers at $5 a bottle plus a generous 20% tip x 3 for each player works out to $165. Sounds like a reasonable anount for amoint for a good time. Am I missing something?

  2. I’d like to say unbelievable but,

    How do guys who make what they make have their credit cards maxed? How do you spend 9k in one club in one night?

    Perhaps instead of recommending a fall guy Carter could have offered some financial advice. Not that today’s man children would listen.

  3. First of all, how pathetic are you when you, as an NFL player making more money than 99% of the population, go to a club and can’t pay the bill so you have to get someone else to pay it for you. How dumb are you when you are an NFL player and your credit card gets declined? How dumb are you when you are out with said dumb people and offer to pay the bill for them and expect these two Einsteins will actually pay you back.

    Now, I didn’t recognize these two so I had to look it up. They aren’t making Steph Curry money but Robinson signed a four-year deal in 2016 which pays him over $5.2M with a $2M signing bonus. Likewise, Benenoch signed a four-year deal in 2016 worth over $2.5M with “only” a $253k signing bonus. Still, both of those two are going to earn far more in those four years than 99% of people will make their entire lives. Yet they go out and ring up a nearly $10k bar tab and can’t pay for it? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize these two idiots are spending money like it’s going out of style and will be broke one second after their NFL career is over.
