When K.J. Dillon, a rookie on the Houston Texans, went out to dinner with his teammates, he ordered a salad. A $13 salad, which is kind of expensive for some lettuce, but not anything to write home about. His teammates, meanwhile, ordered $16,255 (minus $13) worth of food and drinks. Dillon tweeted the ridiculous bill, writing, "When you get left with the tab..."

If your parents didn't let you play football because you were a scrawny wimp who would have died instantly, here's a handy way to understand the type of pain NFL rookies endure:

Shout out to the one order of crab macaroni.

Dillon subsequently deleted the tweet because, you know, stay classy. But not before people could see those seven orders of "sea bass with lobster" on the receipt.

When "lobster" is a just a side dish that comes with your regular meal, that's when you know you've made it. You've made it to the NFL. And you're drunk on 22 orders of "Hennesy Pardis Imperial" (incidentally, a precious liquid Darth Vader uses to fuel the Death Star). Some would call this excessive.
