Welcome To The NFL: Seahawks Rack Up $17,500 Bill At Annual Rookie Dinner



It’s a right of passage. A time-honored tradition in professional sports. Going out as a team for dinner and making the rookies pay. 

For this year’s Seattle Seahawks DB’s annual Rookie Dinner, the rookies had a hefty bill at the end of the night. 

According to TMZ, the Seahawks defensive backs rang up a $17,500 bill at a steakhouse in Bellevue.

On Monday night (December 16) the Seahawks defensive backs went to Daniel’s Broiler and had a meal for the ages. 

According to veteran players, it was the most expensive dinner in a while.

There was $11,000 worth of Louis XIII cognac alone. 

High end Japanese steak, lobsters, calamari and all the sides. 

The total bill came up to $17,579.10. 

Based on the images, it doesn’t appear that the tip was automatically included. 

Even if you just do 20% on the subtotal (pre-tax), that’s another $3,196 dollars.

It’s probably safe to assume this was a $20,000 bill all together. 

Ugo Amadi and Marquise Blair were the rookies saddled with the bill at the end of the night. 

Amadi is on a 4-year, $3,165,196 deal, while Blair inked a 4-year, $6,236,648 deal.

But this is football, and contracts are not guaranteed. 

Amadi got $645,196 at signing and Blair received $2.5 million at signing. 

For Amadi’s sake, hopefully he got his fellow rookie to pick up a larger share of the bill.
