The Philadelphia Eagles rookie class apparently is a bunch of hungry guys, as a dinner bill for nearly $18,000 was tweeted out by Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson.
Johnson called the photo “rookie dinner”, although it wasn’t made clear as to whether or not this was a dinner that the rookies had to pick up the tab for, or if it was just a celebration involving the Eagles newcomers.
The excessive tab is another example of how players have a hard time explaining how they need their exorbitant salaries “to live on.” Very few folks really need $90 ribeye steaks to live. And $37 for some macaroni and cheese with lobster? Please. Buy a box of Kraft and throw in some tuna like the rest of us.
Here is a photo of the bill that Johnson tweeted from Del Frisco’s in Philadelphia, with items ranging from steak tartar and expensive cabernets, all the way to a number of shots of Remy Martin Louis XIII for over $6,000.
Personally, I love the bottle of Screaming Eagle cabernet (obviously ordered as a “oh we HAVE to get this wine” addition) for $3,495.00.
Didn’t rookie salaries get capped in the new collective bargaining agreement? Someone should have warned this crew.
At least the restaurant was good enough to figure out the gratuity in advance. A $472 tip made for a nice night for whoever the server was for this group.
All that wine and Remy must have also led to a fairly large Alka-Seltzer bill the next morning.
