Earlier this week, former Ohio State wide receiver Garrett Wilson appeared on The Pivot Podcast featuring NFL veterans Fred Taylor, Ryan Clark and Channing Crowder.

During the segment, Wilson learned just how much his rookie dinner might cost. "They did tell me about the dinner. I've got to take all the receivers to a dinner. That's going to be cool, I'm excited for that," Wilson said before learning the immense cost.

"It's not going to be cool," Ryan Clark said before Fred Taylor revealed the bill could be around $75,000." Wilson was stunned at first before saying - or at least hoping out loud - "Nah, they ain't doing me for $75K. I ain't gonna fake it."

Also in the conversation was a story about former New England Patriots and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

Taylor said the seven-time Super Bowl champion would buy a $3,000+ bottle of wine to stick on the rookies' tab - but only take a sip.

“Tom [Brady] would come in there and buy a three, four, five thousand dollar bottle of wine, take one sip, say goodnight,” Taylor said.
