Todd Gurley I Bench More Than Aaron Donald

6/23/2018 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Todd Gurley was maybe the only human on the planet unimpressed by Aaron Donald's 495-pound bench press this week ... 'cause the running back says that's LIGHT WEIGHT for him.

Is he joking? Maybe (probably) ... but the clip's funny anyway. 

The Rams star was leaving Craig's in West Hollywood this week when he told us 495 is easy work ... because he's been pushing up OVER 500 pounds!!

Again ... he's gotta be kidding, right?

FYI ... Todd weighs 227, Aaron checks in at 285.

By the way, the strongest NFL running back we've ever heard about is Napoleon Kaufman -- a gym freak who reportedly put up 500 pounds on the bench back in the day.

So, is it impossible that Gurley put up 5 bills? Maybe, maybe not ... 

Saints Star Alvin Kamara Big-Ass Tattoos Covering Both Legs Now!!

Breaking News

NFL defenders will at least have something nice to look at as Alvin Kamara runs by them next season ... 'cause the Saints star just finished up his second leg sleeve -- and it's sick.

AK had his whole right leg tatted a while ago, decked out with faces, a saber-tooth cat and tribal elements.

But the running back went under the needle again this week to get his left leg done ... and it's even more dope, with a warrior inside of a saber-tooth cat's mouth on his knee cap.

It doesn't seem to be an accident the new ink's face has a big-ass bull ring in its nose either ... 'cause Kamara's known around the NFL for the piercing.

Only question now is -- will all that ink on his legs slow him down in Year 2?!

Sean Payton sure hopes not.

Carolina Panthers Let 13-Year-Old Girl Practice with Team ... She Hits Hard!!

6/22/2018 1:35 PM PDT
Breaking News

The Carolina Panthers just fulfilled a badass little girl's wish ... and they might have found the team's future linebacker in the process.

And, we're only kinda kidding.

13-year-old Kyleigh -- who's battling a severe endocrine disorder -- worked with Make-a-Wish Foundation to not only MEET the Panthers, but train with them as well ... and she crushed it. 

Superstar linebacker Thomas Davis hooked Kyleigh up with a helmet, jersey, gloves and team uni ... and let her rip into one of Carolina's OTA practices.

Turns out, she's pretty damn good.

"Kyleigh hit harder than Cap! Kyleigh hit harder than Cap!" Davis said, referring to DB Captain Munnerlyn.

Kyleigh's a legit athlete ... having won two wrestling championships ... and T.D. says the Panthers can learn as much from her as she can learn from them.

"She's a champion ... and when you have championship pedigree, I feel like it rubs off on everybody and she definitely rubbed off on a lot of us."

Ex-Cowboys RB Joseph Randle Punished For Car vs. People Attack

6/22/2018 11:08 AM PDT
Breaking News

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been sentenced to probation for striking people with his car at a party in 2016 ... and will finally be released from jail. 

The 26-year-old has been bouncing between jail and mental health facilities ever since the incident -- but, last week, the court declared him mentally competent to receive his punishment. 

As we previously reported, Randle was found guilty of aggravated battery, criminal threats and aggravated burglary after prosecutors say he ran over partygoers after getting kicked out of a party following a loss at a beer pong game

Randle appeared in a Kansas courtroom early Friday morning where he was sentenced to a 5-year probation and $3,000 in fines. 

The judge will also consider cutting 2 years off the probation sentence if Randle keeps his nose clean. 

It's a good result for him -- considering Randle was facing up to 10 years in prison. 

Randle -- who was arrested 6 times in 17 months -- still has serious legal problems on his plate. There are still 4 criminal cases pending and he's back in court on July 2.

A.J. Green Supports Julio Jones' Holdout ... Here's Why!

6/22/2018 9:26 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A.J. Green says he's not mad at Julio Jones for holding out in his contract dispute with the ATL Falcons -- telling TMZ Sports, "He gotta do what he gotta do, man."

The Bengals superstar WR was out shopping in Bev Hills -- and explained that when it comes to getting paid at the pro level, you gotta strike while ya can.

"The NFL stands for 'Not For Long,' so you gotta get it while it lasts."

Green knows what he's talking about -- he signed a 4-year $60 MILLION contract extension in 2015.

But, if things don't work out for Julio in ATL, Green says he's down to share some of the pass-catching workload in Cinci.

Could you imagine Green and Julio on the same offense?! Good luck with that, Joe Haden.

Ex-Texans Cheerleader I Was Body Shamed, Called 'Skinny Fat'

6/22/2018 8:20 AM PDT

A former Houston Texans cheerleader has lawyered up -- with Gloria Allred -- to sue the team after claiming she was treated like a bad sorority pledge ... all because she was considered "skinny fat."

The woman -- Angelina Rosa -- says the Houston Texans cheerleading staffers cornered her before a 2017 game and forcibly duct taped parts of her body to make her body appear tighter. 

The woman claims the entire experience was "painful" and humiliating, and now she's out for legal revenge. 

"I stand here today to make sure no other girl or woman has to endure the same humiliation."

Rosa claims she was so emotionally scarred, she developed an eating disorder. 

She's being added to the lawsuit that Allred has already filed on behalf of 5 other Houston Texans who have gripes with the team. 

NFL's Brandon Browner Jailed for Domestic Battery

6/22/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-Seattle Seahawks star Brandon Browner was arrested and convicted in a domestic battery case stemming from a May incident ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

According to court docs, Browner was arrested in L.A. County on May 6, 2018 for battery and child endangerment. Details surrounding the incident are unclear. 

But records show Browner pled no contest to the charges and was sentenced to probation.

Here's where things go from bad to worse ... sometime after the conviction, the court found Browner had violated his probation from a previous case -- and ordered him to serve 60 days in jail. 

He was released after just 2 days due to overcrowding. 

A rep for the L.A. Sheriff's Dept. tells us, "Anyone sentenced to 180 days or less for a non serious offense is immediately released due to continuing overcrowding." 

It's just the latest in a string of legal issues for the former Pro Bowl cornerback who's been arrested several times ever since his career ended back in 2015. 

We reached out to Browner for comment, but haven't heard back. 

'Revenge of the Nerds' Star Allegedly Attacked Wife Before Death

6/21/2018 3:26 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The estate of Bernie Casey -- a former NFL-star-turned actor -- is being sued by a woman claiming to be his widow, who alleges the 78-year-old violently tackled her to the ground just 1 week before his death. 

The woman behind the suit is Cheryl Castillo -- who claims she and Bernie lived together in L.A. as husband and wife ... but things went south during an altercation on Sept. 10. 

According to her lawsuit, Castillo claims she was having an argument with Casey over their cars, when he suddenly grabbed her by the arm and tackled her to the ground "as though [she] was a football player."

Before Casey starred in movies like "Revenge of the Nerds" and "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" -- he was a Pro Bowl wide receiver for the L.A. Rams back in the '60s. 

Castillo claims she suffered injuries from the alleged attack and wants Casey's estate to fork over some big money to make things right.

Casey died on Sept. 19 after suffering a stroke. Castillo believes his health conditions affected his mental ability in the last years of his life. 

Willie McGinest Chill, Falcons T.O. Training Julio Is A Good Thing

6/21/2018 11:26 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Willie McGinest has some advice for the Atlanta Falcons brass ... RELAX ... saying anyone in ATL's front office who's miffed Julio Jones is training with T.O. is wrong -- because it's actually a good idea.

Jones and Owens have been working out together this offseason, and there are reports that some of the higher-ups in Atlanta are concerned Terrell might rub off on Julio a little bit.

Willie says that would actually be a GOOD thing ... telling our guy at LAX, Owens has a lot of positive things to offer a stud receiver like Jones.

"Training with Terrell Owens I don't think is a bad thing. T.O. was one of the hardest working guys in the NFL and never had a problem with his work ethic or being in shape."

Get your popcorn ready, Falcons ... oh, BTW ... PAY JULIO JONES.

Russell Wilson and Ciara What's Hattenin'?

6/21/2018 10:18 AM PDT

Russell Wilson and Ciara are in the UK for the Royal Ascot horse races ... and, man, do they look dishy!!

In case you don't know your onions ... Royal Ascot is a historic horse racing event in England that's been going on since the 1700s ... with everybody from the Royal Family to huge celebs in attendance.

Seriously, the Queen and Princess Beatrice are both there -- so you know it's a big deal. 

Of course, there's a strict dress code that requires everyone to style out their noggins with massive head wear ... which explains why the Seahawks superstar looks like the Monopoly guy.

There's big money involved on the track -- with roughly $10 MILLION in prize money. No word if the Queen ever places any bets -- but it'd be weird considering she'd be using money with her face on it. 

But, the biggest shocker of the day ... one of the dudes in the royal procession FELL OFF HIS HORSE -- but, don't worry, everyone makes mistakes ... right, Russell? (#HandItToMarshawn). 

Baker Mayfield Breaks Down Cop Tackle Video 'So Much Regret'

6/21/2018 10:02 AM PDT
Breaking News

Baker Mayfield just gave the play-by-play on his infamous 2017 arrest -- where he was chased down and tackled by police in Arkansas -- and said, "There's so much regret about that."

The #1 pick in the NFL Draft appeared on FS1's 'The Herd' with Colin Cowherd -- who played the arrest video for Baker and asked him straight-up what the hell he was thinking. 

As previously reported, Baker was arrested for public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after trying to run from cops who wanted to question him about a fight from earlier that evening. 

Baker was adamant to Cowherd that he was not in trouble for anything when cops approached him -- but he freaked out due to his "state of mind."

"For some reason, I thought I was in trouble," Mayfield said ... so he decided to try and run away. 

Cops then tackled him down to the ground and the video went viral. 

"That was very eye-opening to me," Mayfield said ... explaining that the incident was a "rude awakening to responsibility and accountability."

Baker insists he's learned his lesson and has become better as a player and a person as a result.

EXCLUSIVE

Anthony Barr -- the Vikings star who put the hit on Aaron Rodgers that broke his collarbone in 2017 -- doesn't believe he'll have a target on his back when he faces Green Bay in Week 2. 

In fact, Barr tells TMZ Sports ... it's "just another game."

Yeah, right. 

As we previously reported, Barr received violent hate mail after the hit -- with one Packers fan warning him, "Your payback in coming. Piece of s***."

So, when we saw the linebacker at LAX, we asked if he was worried Packers players would REALLY try to get that "payback."

"I'm not too worried about it," Barr told us ... "It's football man. It's another game."

Barr told the NFL Network he didn't try to hurt Rodgers on the play -- saying, "It's unfortunate that it happened."

87 days and counting ...
