Being a Rookie Can be a Drag

larry-english-dinner-bill-resizedFirst-round pick Larry English is expected to be a major cog in the San Diego Chargers defense this season; to show their appreciation for all his hard-work, the entire team took him out for a classy steak dinner.

Oh, wait, that’s backwards; English was forced to pick up the bill for the ENTIRE team as part of an annual Chargers rookie tradition. The tab ended up at a robust $14,508.67 which is awfully pricey for a 23 year-old. Then again, when you sign guaranteed 5-year 9.9 million contract maybe 15K isn’t SO bad.

In some respects, English got off easy; when Shawn Merriman was a rookie his dinner bill ended up around $32,000, although Ryan Leaf merely spent $3,000 in 1998.

Courtesy of fellow linebacker Shaun Phillips’ Twitter feed, English’s hazing can be shared with the world.

I also want to know who got the raspberry sorbet, which tough guy football man ordered that; it had to be Nate Kaeding the kicker right? Also, I hope the team did the whole, “we’ll be right back” thing and told English to wait for them as they all bailed.
