MIAMI BEACH, Fla., March 26 (UPI) -- New York Giants defensive tackle Shaun Rogers was the victim of an apparent burglary at a Miami Beach, Fla., hotel, a police report indicated Tuesday.

The 34-year-old, who spent the 2012 season on injured reserve, told police diamond earrings, wristwatches, a gold necklace and other items worth $500,000 were stolen from his room at the Fontainebleau Hotel, WFOR-TV, Miami, reported.

The Miami Beach Police Department report indicated Rogers and some friends came back to his hotel room at 7 a.m. in the company of a woman they had met earlier at the Club Liv.

Rogers said he placed the valuables in a room safe as the party continued. When he awoke at 12:30 p.m. both the woman and the jewelry were gone, he told the authorities.

WFOR-TV reported Rogers listed the missing items as diamond earrings worth $100,000; two wristwatches worth a combined $160,000; a gold necklace with gold pendant worth $50,000; gold bracelets worth $60,000; and a diamond Cuban necklace with a gold pendant worth $70,000.

The former second-round Detroit draft pick out of the University of Texas played for the Lions for seven years, followed by stints with Cleveland, New Orleans and the Giants.
