There are some rituals when it comes to playing in the NFL that never go away. One is sticking the rookies with large bills to welcome them into the organization. And that’s exactly what happened to 49ers rookie running back Mike David.
Just in case he forgot that he was the new guy in town this training camp, the team swiftly reminded him of that fact. David tweeted a picture of the bill that he had to pay after spending a night out at dinner with some of his San Francisco teammates. He knew that he would be going out for dinner with them, but he didn’t know that it was going to be his treat!
The 22-year-old ended up picking up the entire tab of $1878.59. You might be saying, “so what, he’s an NFL player.” But David was a fourth-round pick and will “only” be making about $435,000 this year.
