Tom Brady Thief Caught on Video May Have Jacked Von Miller, Too!

Breaking News

9:02 AM PT -- Sources connected to the investigation tell us 2 Patriots jerseys and 1 Broncos helmet were recovered in Mexico.

The Broncos helmet is likely that of Von Miller, as Jay Glazer reported.

We're told no cleats have been recovered ... at least not yet.

Glazer said Miller's cleats also went M.I.A. after Super Bowl 50. Unclear if it's connected to this investigation.The man who jacked Tom Brady's Super Bowl jerseys may have ALSO stolen Von Miller's helmet and cleats from Super Bowl 50 ... so says Jay Glazer.

Glazer appeared on "Undisputed" on FS1 and said investigators used video footage to identify the suspect in the Super Bowl 51 caper. 

Glazer says investigators saw the suspect enter the locker room behind Bill Belichick and leave a short time later with something tucked under his arm. 

Glazer says the suspect had a legitimate media credential -- but may not be a real journalist. He may have been running a scam.

And get this ... Glazer says the Denver Broncos believe the suspect hit Von Miller in the previous Super Bowl.

EXCLUSIVE

Denver Broncos stud WR Demaryius Thomas had a helluva weekend -- playfully saying, "F**k Tom Brady" and dancing topless on a bar in Georgia ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.

Thomas was out at the Velvet Elvis Grille in Milledgeville on Saturday where DT got super turnt and partied his face off with the locals. 

We're told he was super nice and fun -- buying drinks for people and talking to everyone -- and during the party, he took a playful shot at the Patriots QB. 

The guy in the video with Thomas says DT was just joking around with the Tom Brady comment ... and meant no harm.

As for the dancing, if only Coyote Ugly hired dudes. 

NFL's Emmanuel Sanders Blew A FORTUNE On Sidechicks ... Furious Wife Claims

2/20/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The estranged wife of Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders has declared WAR on the NFL star -- claiming he lied, cheated and spent THOUSANDS on chicks he was banging on the side. 

It's all in ANGRY court docs filed by Gabriella Sanders -- who blasts the father of her 2 children with a metaphorical bazooka right from the get go. 

"When he's not playing football on the field, he 'plays the field' with numerous women whom he is or has committed adultery."

Gabby lays out multiple marital "atrocities" allegedly committed by her husband -- and claims he spent "thousands upon thousands of dollars on girlfriends and wasting the community estate, even purchasing a vehicle for one of his illicit affairs."

The allegations are strikingly similar to those of Shelly Sterling -- who claimed her husband Donald Sterling had no right to give $2.6 mil in gifts to V. Stiviano. She sued V and won. V was ordered to reimburse the Sterling estate.

Gabby filed for divorce from Sanders back in October and in the new court docs filed in Texas she says there is ZERO chance of a reconciliation. 

Emmanuel signed a $33 mil extension with the Broncos back in Sept. -- with $27 mil fully guaranteed.

But there's more ...

Gabby also claims Emmanuel lied to the Broncos -- claiming he told the team he needed to miss a practice in Nov. so he could be in Houston for the birth of their child ... which was a a lie so he could go out partying. 

We reached out to Emmanuel's camp for comment -- so far, no word back. 

NFL's Emmanuel Sanders Pregnant Wife Files For Divorce ... Judge Orders NFLer To Stay Away

12/13/2016 12:46 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The wife of Broncos star Emmanuel Sanders is pulling the plug on their brief marriage, despite the fact she's about to give birth to their 2nd child any day ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Gabriella Sanders -- who is due this month -- filed divorce docs in Texas at the end of October, a few days before the couple's 3 year wedding anniversary.

According to the court docs, GS says "the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities," but doesn't say exactly what caused the split.

It doesn't seem pretty, cause the judge gave Gabriella a temporary restraining order to keep the wide receiver away from her and their Texas home until further notice.

The judge did give the NFLer "limited access" to their 2-year-old son and future daughter.

In the docs, Gabriella's also asking for child support and a "disproportionate share" of their assets, because she says the divorce is Emmanuel's fault. 

We reached out to his camp, but they had no comment at this time.

1:50 PM PT -- Gabriella had their baby girl Tuesday afternoon, and Emmanuel was there in the delivery room. He posted a pic which makes it seem like they buried their differences, at least for today.

John Elway On Von Miller Sex Tape Case Mum's the Word

12/8/2016 6:26 AM PST

He's usually a chatty guy ... but John Elway shut down when asked about the Von Miller sex tape case Wednesday night. 

The Broncos GM was leaving Madeo with his smokin' hot wife when we asked how he felt about his biggest star being involved in a crazy sex tape war. It's clear it's a touchy subject. 

Elway was down to talk the last time Von was involved in a big controversy -- saying it was "too bad" when Miller cut Elway out of a White House photo because he was mad about contract negotiations.

As far as the sex tape fight goes, Von's co-star was ordered to surrender her copy of the footage -- she has 24 hours to comply ... or else. 

Broncos' Linebacker Shane Ray HIBACHI, PLEASE! I'm a Benihana Chef Now!

11/30/2016 7:38 AM PST

Denver Broncos linebacker Shane Ray has a fallback plan if the whole NFL thing doesn't work out -- he's a master Benihana chef ... and he's got the certificate to prove it! 

The 23-year-old donned the trademark Benihana chef hat and apron -- and got cookin' on the teppanyaki ... grillin' up everything from shrimp to fried rice!

He even did the "spin the egg" trick! 

Ray's teammate, Taurean Nixon, documented the whole thing -- and though Ray was strugglin' at times ... he did well enough to get certified! 

As for the food ... don't worry, he had a "real" chef standing over his shoulder making sure everything tasted delicious. 

Von Miller Sex Tape Co-Star I Didn't Extort Him I Kept Footage for Masturbation

11/30/2016 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Von Miller's sex tape partner says the NFL star is full of crap -- claiming she NEVER set him up or shook him down ... and says she only kept the X-rated footage as a self-pleasuring aid. 

We spoke with Elizabeth Ruiz -- who says Von was the one pushing to record their sexual encounter in Cancun back in June ... and they BOTH shot portions on their own cell phones.

As we previously reported, Von filed legal docs in an effort to block Ruiz from releasing the tape -- and claimed she was trying to extort him for $2.5 MILLION.

Ruiz says the Broncos star is lying through his diamond grillz ... insisting she never asked him for a dollar ... until HIS lawyers made an unsolicited offer.

But Ruiz says the tape was never about getting rich -- it was just about getting off.

Broncos' Brandon Marshall ENDS NATIONAL ANTHEM PROTEST ... I'll Stand from Now On

11/6/2016 4:28 PM PST
Breaking News

Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall has decided to end his national anthem protest --- and will STAND when the Star Spangled Banner is played for the rest of the season. 

Marshall was one of the first NFL players to join Colin Kaepernick's protest -- and said he would be taking a knee during the anthem to "raise awareness for social injustice and to start conversation about what all of us can do to make a positive change."

Marshall explained his decision to call off the protest on Instagram before the Broncos vs. Raiders game Sunday night ... saying:

"Going forward, I will be standing for the National Anthem -- not because everything is perfect, or because I'm changing my stance on things. But because of my hope for what we can become."

"Just because I am standing doesn't mean the work will end. There’s much work to be done. I’ll continue to recognize and support organizations that are stepping up as leaders and making a real difference in our community, and I will do my part to be there for those in need."

Marshall added, "I really appreciate the support from my family, teammates, coaches and fans. I’m grateful for those who have taken the time to hear me out. I’m excited for what all of us can accomplish when we truly work together."

For the 1st half of the season, I’ve been taking a knee for the National Anthem to raise awareness for social injustice and to start conversation about what all of us can do to make a positive change. I’m encouraged with the many productive discussions and progress that has taken place as the Denver Police department has decided to review its use of force policy. I’m proud to have joined so many of my peers throughout sports who’ve also made their own statements. Going forward, I will be standing for the National Anthem—not because everything is perfect, or because I'm changing my stance on things. But because of my hope for what we can become. Just because I am standing doesn't mean the work will end. There’s much work to be done. I’ll continue to recognize and support organizations that are stepping up as leaders and making a real difference in our community, and I will do my part to be there for those in need. One of those organizations is the Idriss Stelley Foundation, a grassroots organization in the Bay Area that offer free support to victims of police violence. I’ll be standing for them and the family of the late O’Shaine Evans—on Sunday night in addition to making a donation from my Tackle Change program to further the meaningful work of this group. I really appreciate the support from my family, teammates, coaches and fans. I’m grateful for those who have taken the time to hear me out. I’m excited for what all of us can accomplish when we truly work together.

Ain't nuthin' but a Broncos paaarty ... 

Tupac, Dr. Evil, the dude from "Coming to America" ... the Denver Broncos busted out some pretty awesome costumes at the team Halloween party Monday night -- and we've got the video. 

Von Miller was Austin Powers' nemesis, DeMarcus Ware was The Mad Hatter, T.J. Ward was Macho Man Randy Savage (RIP) and Aqib Talib was either Willy Wonka or a pimp. 

But the best costume ... Kayvon Webster and his date who went as Tupac and Jada Pinkett from that famous photo. 

Are we sure Tupac isn't alive and playing cornerback???

Broncos' Paxton Lynch 100 Friends, Family In Attendance ... For NFL Debut

10/3/2016 1:40 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

How's this for fate ...

When Paxton Lynch was called off the Broncos bench to make his unexpected NFL debut this weekend, 100 of his closest friends and family members just happened to be in the stands. 

Here's the deal ... the Broncos were playing in Tampa Bay -- about 90 minutes from where the Denver rookie went to high school. 

100 of the QB's closest friends and family decided to buy tickets to the game to support their boy -- knowing he's the 2nd string QB behind Trevor Siemian ... who's been on fire lately. 

Fast forward to the 2nd quarter -- Siemian goes down, Paxton goes in and balls out -- 14 of 24 for 170 yards and a TD ... and his cheering section LOVED IT!!! 

"We weren't even expecting him to play," Paxton's mother, Stacie, tells us ... "We just went to show support, and were lucky enough to see him get some action."

"He was excited everyone was able to come!" 

We also spoke with Lynch's high school coach, Allen Johnson, who says he wasn't surprised by Paxton's performance -- he'd been preparing like crazy for that moment. 

"I talked to him after the game yesterday briefly," Johnson said ... "He said he’s going to be there for the team and not be the reason why they don’t make it back to the Super Bowl."

Moving forward, Siemian is expected to start next week ... but both Lynch's mom and ex-coach say he'll be ready to go if need be. 

Broncos' Brandon Marshall Kaepernick's Protest Is 'Beautiful' ... He Inspired Me

9/9/2016 11:14 AM PDT
Breaking News

Denver Broncos star Brandon Marshall says Colin Kaepernick's National Anthem protest is a "beautiful thing" ... and his old college teammate inspired him to follow suit Thursday night.

"I thought about it and I felt like this was the right thing to do," the linebacker told "The Jason Smith" show on FOX Sports Radio. 

"I feel like what Kaepernick started, it’s a beautiful thing. A lot of people won’t agree with me, but I feel like it’s a beautiful thing."

(FYI, Kaep and Marshall played together at the University of Nevada.)

"And I won’t just take knees, and that’s why I decided to donate an undisclosed amount to different programs that support the vets, ‘cause, you know, it’s tough for them in this country."

"We send them off to war and they come back and it’s like they don’t get a lot of help. It’s tough for my uncle that’s a vet and family members. So I think this will spark some conversation and help to spark some more change."

There's more ... Marshall says he only told ONE teammate about his plans to protest before the Broncos vs. Panthers game ... tight end Virgil Green

"He told me, 'Look man, just be prepared for all that entails. They’re gonna ask you some tough questions. Just be prepared to answer them.'"

"I told him, ‘Look man, I’m gonna be ready because I thought long and hard about it. And the people that love me are going to support me and I definitely appreciate that.'"
