Ex-NFL Star DeMarcus Ware Reps Monster 275-Pound Hang Cleans ... 'Basic Tuesday'

6/13/2018 12:00 PM PDT
Breaking News

Sorry, James Harrison ... there's a new retired linebacker pushin' serious iron in the gym -- and it's just as frightening.

DeMarcus Ware did his best impression of the former Steelers superstar in the weight room Tuesday, hang power cleaning 275 pounds -- FOR REPS.

The video starts in the middle of D-Ware's set ... so, unclear how many times he actually tossed around the nearly three bills ... but it's AT LEAST five.

The craziest part? The soon-to-be 36-year-old Ware -- who retired after the 2016 season -- called the workout a "Basic Tuesday."

FYI ... Ware just signed on to be a part-time pass-rush consultant for his old team, the Broncos ... and he was STILL the most jacked dude out at practice Wednesday.

Think John Elway wishes that coaching gig would come with just a few more in-game reps?

Breaking News

Von Miller went absolutely BONKERS after the Broncos drafted Bradley Chubb Thursday night -- screaming from the top of his Vegas hotel ... even getting his own daddy in on the party! 

The Broncos took 6'4", 270-pound defensive end Chubb with the 5th pick in the draft -- making the Denver defense even scarier than before!

Chubb was a freak at NC State -- racking up all sorts of awards including the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, which goes to the best defensive player in college football. He also won the 2017 ACC Defensive Player of the Year.

Miller is VERY excited -- he even worked up a sweat celebrating. And we get it ... Chubb once broke his finger during a game and KEPT PLAYING! Dude is a monster. 

So, who's NOT fired up about the new Chubb and Miller duo? Every other offense in the AFC West. 

Congrats!  

Von Miller Yacht Partying with Hotties in Miami ... Despite Shark Investigation

4/8/2018 12:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Von Miller clearly isn't fazed by an investigation into whether he illegally caught a hammerhead shark in Miami, 'cause he continues to party it up there ... in open waters.

The star Broncos linebacker was spotted in the Sunshine State again this weekend enjoying himself on a yacht with a ton of girls and a few pals in tow -- including 49ers rookie Adrian Colbert. Von even hopped on a jet ski with a chick at one point for a quick spin.

As you can see from the photos, Von doesn't seem to be the slightest bit concerned over the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission looking into whether he broke any laws a couple weeks ago in capturing and then releasing a wild hammerhead shark.

PETA flipped their lid over video and photos of the incident, claiming the crew had illegally caught and killed the animal. They ran their complaint all the way up the flagpole in Florida ... which is now officially under investigation.

Von and co. dropped the big fish back into the water when they were done posing with it, and one guy claimed it was swimming away. It's unclear though if the shark had, in fact, died. It appeared bloodied and somewhat lifeless while aboard their boat. 

Von Miller Hammerhead Shark Incident Under Investigation

EXCLUSIVE

Von Miller's fishing expedition in Florida has ignited an investigation after PETA accused the NFL star of illegally catching a hammerhead shark ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Miller and some friends went fishing in Miami last week and reeled in the 9-and-a-half foot shark -- which they later threw back in the ocean.  

PETA -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals -- went berserk over the footage ... accusing Von's group of illegally catching and killing the animal.

PETA vowed to follow up with wildlife officials and said they would "ensure Miller is held accountable."

The complaint got all the way to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission -- a government law enforcement agency that regulates hunting and fishing. 

We spoke with FWC Public Information Coordinator Rob Klepper who tells us, "FWC has received the images and video and is looking into whether or not a violation occurred in this incident."

Unclear what the punishment would be if officials found Miller broke any laws -- we're looking into it. 

Story developing ...

Miller's got a lot to celebrate ... the Broncos signed quarterback Case Keenum last week. Or maybe it was just the girls.

Yeah ... probably the girls.

Breaking News

Broncos DE Adam Gotsis was arrested in Atlanta last week for allegedly raping a woman when he was a player at Georgia Tech in 2013. 

According to the incident report, the woman -- now 30 -- claims Gotsis "placed his penis in her vagina against her will" on the night of March 9, 2013.

The alleged victim did not file a report until February 1, 2018. It's unclear why she waited nearly 5 years.

Gotsis turned himself in to the Fulton County Sheriff's Office on March 7 ... and was released the same day on a $50,000 bond.

The Broncos released the following statement ... “We were recently informed of an investigation into an alleged incident involving Adam Gotsis that occurred in 2013 when he was in college."

"Our organization was aware of his arrest on March 7, and it is our understanding that no determination has been made at this time as to whether any charges will be filed."

"The Broncos take an accusation of this nature very seriously and will continue to closely monitor the legal proceedings. This issue was promptly reported to the NFL as soon as we learned of it, and we will remain in communication with the league office regarding this matter." 

Gotsis was a 2nd-round pick for Denver in 2016. He played in all 16 games for the Broncos last season, making 13 starts.

Denver Broncos Owners Son Avoids Jail In 100 MPH DUI Case

3/9/2018 12:23 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

John Bowlen -- son of Broncos owner Pat Bowlen -- has cut a plea deal in his DUI case ... the one where he told a cop, "So you know who my father is?"

As we previously reported, the 31-year-old -- who used to work for the Broncos -- was busted in July 2017 when cops say he was blazing down a California highway around 100 mph while drunk. 

And to make matters worse ... he had a puppy in the backseat. 

Now, we've learned ... John appeared in a San Luis Obispo court Thursday and pled no contest to driving under the influence. The good news for Bowlen? No jail time.

He ain't completely off the hook ... the judge sentenced him to 3 years probation and ordered him to pay $2,415 in fines and other costs. He must also complete a DUI education program. 

FYI -- this wasn't Bowlen's first brush with the law ... back in 2015, he was arrested for domestic violence and told officials he was the "blood of the city."

Jake Plummer NFL Teams 'Scared' to Sign Kaepernick ... Suggests Bigotry

3/6/2018 12:25 PM PST
Breaking News

Jake Plummer says NFL teams are too "scared" and "uneducated" to sign Colin Kaepernick -- and suggested some of the organizations are even run by "bigoted people."

The former Denver Broncos QB was speaking with Broncos reporter Nicki Jhabvala about the future of Kaep's career ... and the Snake didn't hold back. 

"I think that they're all scared and that they're uneducated on him as a person and what he wants to do."

"I don't know if he wants to play for organizations run by scared, kind of bigoted people that don't understand what it's like to be in the shoes of someone like him and to see the things he's seen and relate to the people that go through the atrocities of what everyday people deal with."

"I don't know. I hope someone does [sign him]. I would really love it because I love watching him play. I would love to see him come here [to Denver] but I'm not sure if they would do that."

As for Denver's GM John Elway, he previously told us Kaep was NOT being blackballed but didn't make it sound like Kaep was on his watchlist. 

Terrell Davis Broncos Don't Want Nick Foles ... He's Had 1 Good Game!

2/4/2018 12:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bad news for Nick Foles -- the Denver Broncos ain't interested ... this according to Broncos legend Terrell Davis.

We got TD in Minnesota for the Super Bowl ... and it was clear the Hall of Famer didn't think the Eagles' incumbent QB has done enough to warrant interest from his boy, Broncos GM John Elway, this offseason. 

"You gotta look at the body of work. He's having a good playoffs, but you can't just take a few games ... matter of fact, he's only had one good game so far,"  Terrell told TMZ Sports, talking about Foles' explosion vs. the Vikings.

Oh, well -- at least there's another free-agent QB who's CLEARLY wanted in Denver.

Von Miller Wrastlin' Gators!!

1/26/2018 9:11 AM PST

Here's Denver Broncos MVP Von Miller scaring the hell outta John Elway ... sitting on top of a living, breathing ALLIGATOR! 

Miller is in Orlando, Florida for the Pro Bowl and decided to use some of his free time to visit Gatorland --the self-proclaimed, "Alligator Capital of the World."

The 28-year-old got the VIP gator treatment -- with park officials allowing him to "wrestle" a gator ... which means he got to climb on top of the animal while its jaws were taped shut. 

Gator Fun Fact -- alligators can bite down with an insane amount of force (300 pounds per square inch) ... but barely have any muscle power to OPEN their mouths. Crazy, right?!

Still, Von is in the middle of a $114 MILLION contract ... would you let him get this close to an alligator?!

Emmanuel Sanders Off the Hook In Felony Sexual Assault Case

1/18/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

11:33 AM PT-- More info from the Harris County Sheriff's Office ... which says the incident in question took place on June 15, 2017. 

"The complaint was thoroughly investigated and all involved parties, including Mr. Sanders, were interviewed by investigators."

"Upon completion of the investigation, evidence and witness statements were presented to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office to determine whether a criminal charge should be filed."

"The Harris County District Attorney’s Office presented the case to a grand jury, which determined on January 9, 2018 that there was insufficient evidence to support a criminal charge."

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders will NOT be prosecuted for felony sexual assault after a grand jury in Texas decided there was not enough evidence to move forward with the case. 

Officials in Texas are being very tight-lipped about the case ... but here's what we know so far.

Sanders was accused of sexual assault in Harris County, Texas -- where he still owns a home. He went to high school nearby.

Unclear when the alleged sexual assault took place -- but we know the case was classified as a felony 2 ... which means the allegations were very serious. 

The case was kicked over to a grand jury and on January 9, the jury "failed to find a bill of indictment" ... meaning they felt there was not enough evidence to prove his guilt. 

According to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Sanders is off the hook. 

We reached out to Sanders for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Broncos' Carlos Henderson Tried Eating Weed Before Arrest ... Cops Say

1/15/2018 8:07 AM PST
Breaking News

Broncos WR Carlos Henderson was arrested for possession of marijuana after a routine traffic stop on Sunday ... where he tried (and failed) to eat the evidence, according to cops. 

It all went down Sunday afternoon in West Monroe, Louisiana ... when Henderson was a passenger in a car pulled over for speeding.

Cops noted a strong smell of weed coming from the car ... but Carlos and the driver, Alejandra Aviles-Jimenez, both denied possessing or smoking weed inside the vehicle.

But when a search of the car turned up weed around the passenger seat and what appeared to be the remainder of a joint, cops checked their tongues -- and Henderson's "contained a thick green residue."

Carlos said he smoked earlier in the day, but insisted he did not try eating any weed before (or during) the stop. 

Cops weren't buying it ... and booked the former Louisiana Tech star, while letting Aviles-Jimenez go with a speeding citation. Henderson was later released on bond.

In a statement, the Broncos said they're "aware of the issue involving Carlos Henderson and are gathering more information."

Jaleel White Snatch My Chain?! 'I'd F**k You Up Terribly!'

11/27/2017 8:18 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jaleel White's take on the Michael Crabtree vs. Aqib Talib chain-snatching fight might be the best take: 

"If I had a chain on and you snatched it, I would f*ck you up terribly."

White continued, "I would have to do that on GP (general principle). I wouldn't even want to but because I knew my daughter would see the footage, I would have to do it."

Of course, Crabtree subscribes to the same set of principles ... he got violent with Talib during the Raiders vs. Broncos game on Sunday after getting his chain snatched IN JANUARY, too. 

Still, worst chain snatching ever might still be that Steve Francis incident. Brutal.
