Shaun Rogers certainly doesn’t travel light when it comes to jewelry.
The Giants defensive tackle this past weekend reportedly was robbed of $500,000 worth of jewelry in Miami Beach, according to CBS Miami via the Miami Beach Police. According to the reports, Rogers was staying at the Fontainebleau Hotel and went down to the hotel club with some friends. The group returned to the room about 7 a.m. along with a woman they met at the club.
After he returned to his room, Rogers placed his many pieces of expensive jewelry in the room safe. When he woke up at 12:30 p.m., the woman and the jewelry were gone.
The rundown of the losses: Diamond earrings worth $100,000; two watches 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.
Rogers, 34, played 11 years in the NFL before coming to the Giants last year. He did not play a game for the Giants, instead spending the 2012 season in injured reserve with a blood clot in his leg. He became an unrestricted free agent and the Giants signed him to a one-year contract worth $1 million, including a signing bonus of $20,000.
