Giants' Shaun Rogers, Wearer of $500k Worth of Jewelry, Has Bling Stolen

It's the classic tale of boy meets girl, boy brings girl back to hotel room and boy has nearly $500,000 worth of jewelry stolen. 

CBS Miami (h/t NBC Sports) reports New York Giants defensive tackle Shaun Rogers had his expensive jewelry stolen after a night out with buddies in the Miami area. 

According to the report, Rogers and his friends went out at about 1 a.m. to Club Liv. They then met a young lady they decided to bring back to their hotel, the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach. 

There is no mention what time the crew called it a night, but the 34-year-old NFL player reportedly decided to put all of his bling into the hotel safe at around 7 a.m. Rogers then woke at 12:30 p.m. only to find that woman he brought back to the hotel was gone. 

If you are following along closely, you can probably assume what he found next. 

Rogers went to the safe that was previously locked and couldn't open it with his code. A quick call to security and a pry bar later and the door was opened only to find a big fat show of nothing. 

In all, Rogers had the following items stolen (via CBS Miami): 

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.

I really don't want to tell Rogers not to wear that much jewelry, because he earned it and should be able to wear it wherever he wants. 

However, he shouldn't wear that much jewelry. 

When you wear half a million dollars worth of bling at the club, you become a target. From the benign group of people who are just curious who that guy is with all that jewelry to the group of people who see dollar signs and heists—every single person in the club will take notice. 

Now we can't assume the anonymous lady the group brought back with them did indeed steal the jewelry. However, I was rather shocked at what I found from a quick Google search of how to break into a hotel safe. 

So, what I will assume is that these safes aren't exactly the stuff that demands the extravagant plans of Danny Ocean and his entourage to break into. 

The report has no word on whether the items were insured. If not, we can chalk this up to one expensive life lesson. 

I know it sounds crazy, but how about we limit the jewelry you wear out to the club at the $50,000 necklace and call it a day?

I think that might be enough swag.
