Rookies are the butt of jokes in nearly every profession, but in the NFL it can come at a cost as Houston Texans rookie K.J. Dillon found out when he ordered a $16 salad but ended up stuck with a $16,000 dinner bill and bar tab, racked up by his teammates.
After accompanying teammates to a night on the town after the team’s Week 15 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, the fifth-round draft pick ruefully tweeted (but later deleted) the results of his evening with a photo of the bill captioned “When you get left with the tab.”
A screen shot of the receipt taken by CBS Sports shows orders for quite a lot of high-dollar meals. Some of the meals included seven orders of sea bass with lobster ($349.65), two filet mignons ($105.90), two broiled Atlantic salmon ($83.90), and a HUGE bill for 22 Hennessy Pardis Imperials at a whopping $7,700.00.
Oh, and there was also an entry for one Caesar salad at $12.95. Apparently that was Dillon’s order, as the player later tweeted.
