24 hours after a dominant TWO touchdown performance, Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris was already back to work ... as a waiter a fancy steak restaurant.
Morris -- and several of his teammates strapped on some aprons for "Celebrity Waiter Night" at Ruth's Chris in Arlington, VA ... where the guys served up appetizers to raise money for charity.
On his way into the steak joint, Morris told us being a waiter is CAKE compared to his job on the gridiron ... saying, "All you do is smile and be polite!"
The gang raised money for the Blitz for the Better foundation -- which helps out families in need in the D.C. area ... especially families with children who are ill, have special needs or are physically challenged.
Tickets went for $350-a-pop ... hopefully, the guy (who's one of the most underpaid players in the NFL) made out with a few tips.

Dwight Howard might be color blind -- 'cause officials in Florida say he ran 10 RED LIGHTS in 2-and-a-half years -- and now his license has been suspended ... TMZ Sports has learned.
According to official records, the NBA superstar was captured by those red light cameras in Orange County, FL over and over again ... starting in 2012, when he was busted 9 times in 10 months.
Then, after a year-and-a-half without a violation, Howard struck again in 2014 -- blowing through another red light on July 1st ... his 10th overall infraction.
Officials from the Orange County Clerk of Courts tell us ... Howard's license can be reinstated if he pays a $285 fine.
We're guessing he can afford it.

Boxing phenom Gerald Washington was arrested in Burbank, CA late Monday night ... TMZ Sports has learned.
Washington -- a former tight end at USC -- is 14-0 in the ring ... but last night, the 32-year-old found himself in handcuffs after a routine traffic stop went south.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops noticed Washington's Chevy truck was "straddling the lines" just before midnight ... plus, he had expired tags ... so they pulled him over.
During the stop, cops determined Washington was NOT under the influence -- but officers noticed a warrant out for his arrest stemming for a previous driving without a license incident.
He was taken into custody and bail was set at $5k.
We're told Washington -- nicknamed "El Gallo Negro" -- was very cooperative. We're told Washington is still in custody.

I'm Most Upset About ...
9/16/2014 6:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
NBA star Andrei Kirilenko says he's shocked that burglars broke into his Salt Lake City home and jacked a bunch of his stuff last week -- telling TMZ Sports they took a few special items that made him really upset.
The Brooklyn Nets player was heading to the Celebrity Dodge Barrage charity event at Basketball City in NYC -- when he opened up about the incident ... saying, "I know Utah is the safest place in the world and I'm very surprised it happened there."
Overall, AK47 (who played for the Jazz for 10 years) says he's staying positive about the incident -- even though cops have yet to make an arrest -- but it's clear he's bummed out that he'll probably never see some of his most treasured possessions ever again.
Iggy Azalea's Former BF
She Gave Me Permission
To Sell Sex Tape!
9/16/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Iggy Azalea's former boyfriend/manager now claims Iggy signed her rights away to him, giving him legal authority to market their sex tape ... TMZ has learned.
Hefe Wine says Iggy signed a lengthy agreement with him in 2009 -- obtained by TMZ -- which gives him exclusive rights to "manufacture, sell, distribute and advertise 'any' recording embodying visual images."
Iggy signed the contract to cut records and music videos, but Wine believes all he has to do is put a music bed under the sex tape which he claims would then give him exclusive rights to sell it.
In other words, he believes Iggy has no legal ability to block a sex tape if he wants to sell it.
What's more ... the contract provides that Wine has the legal right to create, host and maintain a website to market Iggy's works, so he believes he could create a website which would host the video.

9/16/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Floyd Mayweather was snubbed by Warren Buffett before his championship fight Saturday night, because the billionaire and his company had issues with the champ, weed and women.
Sources connected to both Mayweather and Buffett tell TMZ ... the mogul had agreed to walk Floyd into the ring ... accompanied by Justin Bieber and Wiz Khalifa. In fact, we're told Buffett was excited to be part of Team Money.
But our sources say Buffett's company, Berkshire Hathaway, had problems with the spectacle, primarily because of a Mayweather documentary -- "All Access." Buffett is featured in the flick with Floyd ... and the very next scene shows Money carousing with women while his posse rolls joints.
The documentary didn't sit well with Buffett's people -- they felt it reflected badly on their boss. We're told at around 10 A.M. Saturday ... Warren agreed and 86'd his plan to walk Floyd into the ring.
After Floyd found out Buffett bailed ... he decided to walk out alone.
Buffett still went to the fight and was with Floyd in his dressing room before the bout.

Pool Boy Flooded My Penthouse

Deion Sanders is completely underwater after his pool emptied into his Dallas penthouse apartment ... and now he wants millions from the company he blames for drenching him.
The NFL Hall of Famer had been trying to sell his $6.5 million Dallas pad in the ritzy Azure tower -- where Terrell Owens and Jason Kidd have also lived -- when he hired WWPS, Inc. to work on the pool back in 2012. Mind you, the pool is INSIDE Deion's home. Baller style.
According to the docs ... 2 days after the work was done, Deion's realtor stopped by and found the place flooded. This all went down while he was in the middle of a nasty divorce ... so the cash flow would've come in handy.
Deion still hasn't sold the place -- even though he dropped the asking price to $4.8 mil. He wants at least a million from the the pool co. for his troubles.

9/15/2014 2:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Floyd "Money" Mayweather did not share A PENNY of the $32 MILLION he earned Saturday night with the waitress who served him $25,000 worth of booze and chicken wings ... TMZ has learned.
Nik Nguyen tells TMZ ... she thought she'd hit the jackpot when Floyd walked into Rehab at the Hard Rock Sunday afternoon with around 150 people. Floyd and crew ordered:
5 bottles of Patrone - $2,375
3 Grey Goose - $1,425
6 bottles of Ciroc - $2,850
20 bottles of Luc Belaire Rose champagne - $11,500
1 6-liter bottle of Luc Belaire Rose - $6,500
200 chicken wings - $600
1 fruit platter - $55
TOTAL BILL: $25,305.
Nguyen tells us ... she went the extra mile to provide Floyd and company with excellent service. Not surprisingly ... the Hard Rock ended up comping Floyd, and he showed his gratitude by leaving Nguyen ... chicken bones, empty bottles and that's it.
She says it's especially maddening because some of the people in Floyd's entourage -- including Jamie Foxx -- were throwing money at random girls who were twerking on stage.
Nguyen says she's been struggling with 2 jobs and the recent death of her father ... but she didn't walk walk away empty-handed. She says security guards felt so sorry for her they scooped up a few bucks the twerkers left behind and gave it to her.
We've called Floyd's team ... so far, no comment.

9/15/2014 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan is lying when she says she had to roll Whitney Houston's body bag at the L.A. County Morgue ... because Whitney was never in a body bag.
An official from the Coroner's Office tells TMZ ... Whitney was NEVER in a body bag and no one in the probation program came in contact with Whitney's body.
Lindsay -- who was ordered by a judge to spend time at the morgue to teach her a lesson about drinking and driving -- claimed in an interview she was singled out to roll Whitney's body bag.
Whitney died on Saturday, Feb 11, 2012. The autopsy was performed the next day and her body was gone by morning. No one from any court-ordered probation program came in contact with the body ... according to the Coroner's official.
The official says Whitney was wrapped in plastic with a sheet cover the entire time she was at the morgue. In fact, she was taken out in plastic -- not a body bag -- from the hotel where she died.
