John Elway Responds to Von Miller Photo Diss ... 'That's Too Bad'

6/24/2016 6:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

John Elway is finally responding to Von Miller's Instagram diss -- and he seems disappointed in the NFL superstar. 

Elway -- the Exec. VP and GM for the Broncos -- was leaving Craig's in L.A. Thursday night when we asked how he felt about Von cutting him out of a pic he took with Elway and other teammates at the White House earlier this month. 

Miller cut Elway out of the pic to show his displeasure with the Broncos 6-year, $114 million contract offer ($40 mil guaranteed) ... an offer Miller feels is WAY too low.  

Elway responded to the slight last night -- and it seems obvious their relationship is still icy as ever.

Von Miller Broncos Teammates Got His Back 'No Hard Feelings' On Possible Holdout

6/17/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0616-von-miller-ronnie-hillman-tmzMultiple players on the Denver Broncos tell us ... they're NOT upset at Von Miller for threatening to sit out the 2016 season ... telling TMZ Sports it's all a part of the business. 

After Miller declared there was "no chance" he would play in 2016 without a brand new contract -- we spoke with Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman who told us he understands Von's situation. 

"It's between him and the Broncos," Hillman says .... "I respect him as a teammate. Everyone does. No one is mad. We all hope he can get his deal done and get back."

And he ain't the only player who feels that way ... we also spoke with another prominent player who didn't want to be named who said, "He's the best defensive player in the league and should get paid for it."

The player added, "The players are 100% on Von's side."

Von Miller 'No Chance' I'll Play in 2016 Under Franchise Tag

Breaking News

0616-von-miller-instagramVon Miller is apparently threatening to sit out the 2016 season if he can't get a new deal done with the Denver Broncos

Miller just posted on Instagram -- "'I love my Teammates, Coaches, and My Fans' but there is 'No Chance' I play the 2016 season under the Franchise tag."

The Broncos used the franchise tag on Miller back in March -- which means he'd make the average of the top-salaries of his position for the year ... which is roughly $14 mil. 

But Von wants more ... WAY MORE ... recently shutting down a 6-year $114 million deal with $40 mil guaranteed.

And if he doesn't get it ... Von says straight up -- he ain't playin'.

It's a much different stance than he took during an interview that surfaced Wednesday with Chelsea Handler -- in which he stated he would NOT sit out the season.

Breaking News

The Denver Broncos hit up the White House moments ago ... and President Obama wasted no time doing his best Peyton Manning -- dropping a few "Omahas" for the squad. 

The clip's pretty funny ... Obama roasts everyone from Von Miller to kicker Brandon McManus ... and jokes that he might be able to play WR for the Broncos. 

Of course, there were a few players from the Super Bowl championship team who were noticeably absent -- including Brock Osweiler (who's with his new team) and Aqib Talib (who's nursing a gunshot wound). 

Denver Broncos WR Calls Cops to Report Domestic Violence ... Gets Arrested

0531_Cody-Latimer_mug

Denver Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer called police to report that his GF had attacked him during a domestic dispute Monday night -- but when cops arrived, he ended up in cuffs too. 

The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Dept. says the 23-year-old Super Bowl champ called police to report that his GF had "put her hands on him."

When cops arrived to the scene, they ran both Latimer's and his GF's names through the system, per standard operating procedure -- and noticed a warrant out for Cody stemming from an old traffic violation.

The GF was arrested for assault and disturbing the peace. Latimer was arrested for the outstanding warrant (a failure to appear over a traffic ticket).

To be clear, Latimer was NOT accused of domestic violence.

Latimer ultimately paid a $311.50 fine and was released. He also bailed out his GF.

The 28-year-old -- who hasn't played since suffering an ACL injury in 2014 -- appeared on the "TMZ Sports" TV show on FS1 and discussed his comeback plans. 

"I still have a lot in the tank ... probably TOO MUCH in the tank! I have to let it out!"

Denver Broncos CB I've Been Hacked, Too ... Just Like Tunsil

Breaking News

429-chris-harris-gettyAnother NFL star says his social media account has been HACKED -- with Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. saying someone infiltrated his Instagram to post a potentially damaging photo. 

Harris -- a 2-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champ -- went to Twitter and wrote, "Someone hacking IGs someone just tried me smh."

We didn't see the photo ourselves -- but we're told the pic appeared to show Harris smoking a rolled cigarette.  

Unclear if there's a connection between the Harris hack and the Laremy Tunsil incident. 

Still, Harris has a message to other NFL stars -- CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS. 

Denver Broncos Owner's Son Found Guilty In Bizarre Domestic Violence Case

4/14/2016 11:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0414-bowlen-mug-acj-01The son of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen has just been found guilty of harassment in a bizarre case in which he claimed to be "the blood of the city" of Denver. 

As we previously reported, John Bowlen Jr. -- who worked for the team -- was arrested back in June '15 after allegedly shoving his girlfriend in his Denver-area apartment during a domestic dispute.

John's GF called 911 -- but the call was cut short (the last thing the operator heard was a woman screaming) ... and when the operator called back, Bowlen went on a bizarre rant and referred to himself as the "blood of the city."

John was charged with harassment and telephone obstruction -- but denied the allegations and took the case to a jury trial. 

But today, court officials tell us, "domestic violence was proven" -- and Bowlen was found guilty on one court of harassment.

He was sentenced to 2 years probation and 24 hours of community service. Bowlen was also ordered to domestic violence, mental health and alcohol evaluations and treatment. 

If he violates the terms of his probation, the judge said jail will be imposed. 

Bowlen's attorney has said his client will appeal the ruling. 

Broncos Star Derek Wolfe Throws Vicious Haymaker In Nightclub Brawl

4/5/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Broncos star Derek Wolfe tried to knockout someone during a Denver nightclub brawl, and TMZ Sports has insane footage of him uncorking the punch.

The video shows Wolfe in a black shirt with a chain around his neck, and at 6'5", 285 pounds he dwarfed everyone around him inside VIE Nightclub on Saturday night. 

Wolfe's massive body is shielding the action when the fight starts, but witnesses say a guy was talking trash to Wolfe and his friends. When the pushing and shoving starts some much smaller people feebly try holding back Derek.

Remember, this is the guy who told Tom Brady he was going to "eat his kids."

Wolfe definitely swung HARD into the scrum, but it's unclear if he connected with anyone. Witnesses tell us Derek got hit in the face with a glass bottle, and left the club bloodied. Police were not called to the club.

We reached out to Wolfe's reps ... so far no word back.

Derek was in a much better mood earlier in the night when he mugged with the chefs at a nearby restaurant.

Von Miller Fined By 'DWTS' Partner $100 For Every Minute You're Late!!

EXCLUSIVE

0311-von-miller-instagram-01Von Miller is literally losing cash by the minute on "Dancing with the Stars" ... 'cause the NFL superstar's dance partner is FINING HIM $100 for every minute he's late to rehearsal.

Our 'DWTS' sources tell TMZ Sports Von's partner -- Witney Carson -- came up with the system as a way to ensure he was on time for practice.

The tally so far ... $500 from when Von was 5 minutes late to Thursday's rehearsal. The money goes straight into Witney's pockets ... so ya gotta imagine she wasn't too upset.

FYI -- Miller's slated to make around $14 million next season, so he can afford to lose a few Benjamins.
