When will professional athletes ever learn.  As long as incidents like this continue to happen, we will always have a nice flow of groupie tales to deliver to our readers. In the latest installment of athletes thinking with the wrong head, we present you New York Giants defensive tackle Shaun Rogers. CBS 4 in Miami is reporting that Rogers had about $500,000 in jewelry stolen from the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach. The 34-year-old Rogers told police he left his room around 1 a.m. with  friends and made his way to the infamous Club Liv. While partying, Rogers and his crew of course met a woman who the group brought back to Rogers’ room, according to Miami Beach Police. Rogers told Miami Beach Police that he put his valuables in the room safe when he returned around 7 a.m., and the group continued to party. At some point, around 7 a.m., Rogers finally fell asleep.  According to police, Rogers said at 12:30 p.m., he awoke and found the woman that they had brought home from the club gone. Once Rogers realized the woman was gone, of course his antennas went up. Rogers told police he tried unsuccessfully to get into the room’s safe. Hotel security then came to the room and was able to get open the safe and found Rogers’ valuables were missing. Among the items Rogers said were stolen were: 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. Rogers was on the Giants roster last season, but the season on injured reserve. Smarten up Nas.
