It’s a good thing Shaun Rogers just signed a $1 million contract last month, because he’s apparently out half that amount in stolen jewelry.

Rogers has filed a report with Miami Beach, Fla., police which claims $440,000 in jewelry was stolen from a safe in his hotel room at the famous Fontainebleau hotel over the weekend.

According to the report, Rogers went to a club with two friends and met a woman who came back to his hotel room. Rogers put the jewelry in the safe, and went to sleep. When he woke up, his friends were still in the room, but the woman and jewelry were gone.

The items detailed in the report as missing are a $100,000 watch, $100,000 diamond earrings, a separate $60,000 watch, a $50,000 gold necklace, a $70,000 diamond necklace and three gold bracelets worth $60,000 total.

Rogers is a nose tackle who has played in the league for 12 seasons for four different teams (Lions, Browns, Saints, Giants). He made just shy of $1 million with the Giants in his first season with the team in 2012, though he missed the entire season after developing a blood clot in his leg.

He signed two massive contracts earlier in his career, however, including a six-year, $46 million extension with the Lions in 2005 and a six-year, $42 million deal with the Browns.

He never saw all of that money, however, as he was released before the deals ended and contracts are not guaranteed in the NFL.

The Fontainebleau hotel is famously featured in the James Bond film “Goldfinger,” where Jill Masterson (actress Shirley Eaton) is found dead, covered in gold in a hotel room.
