The Dallas Cowboys somehow spent $55,000 at a team dinner. The rookies paid the bill.



How? Just... how? 

In a show of team solidarity, the Dallas Cowboys got together for dinner during their bye week. Now, normally, this would be relatively unremarkable.

Except for the fact that they racked up a $55,000 tab, according to Bleacher Report. 

Thankfully for the team veterans, the rookies picked up the tab. 

Dallas Cowboy Tyrone Crawford took a photo of the receipt and posted it to Snapchat. 

Six years ago, something similar happened to then-rookie Dez Bryant when the team made him foot a similarly astronomical bill.

Bryant, however, says the rookies this year were not hazed, and that they volunteered to take care of the meal. 

"Nope, because as far as I know, lots of the guys just paid for themselves," Bryant said. "Nobody getting punished. Everybody together."

Even other professional athletes were surprised by the bill.
