Detroit Lions' Tavon Wilson Accused of Attacking Baby Mama ... Denies Allegation

6/23/2017 12:16 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

1:38 PM PT -- We spoke to Wilson's lawyer, Mark Schamel, who tells us, "There's video of the incident that shows Ms. Leach is attacked. Mr. Wilson is a witness, Ms. Leach is the victim and Ms. Jackson is the defendant." 

"She's been charged criminally. Her civil claim is meritless and I think she will be convicted for this shortly."Detroit Lions safety Tavon Wilson is being sued by his baby mama -- who claims the NFL player punched her in the face during a nightclub altercation in May 2016 and broke her nose. But Wilson claims the case is BS.

The woman behind the suit is Alanda Jackson -- who dated Wilson from 2011 to 2014. They have a 3-year-old child together.

Alanda claims she encountered Wilson at Bliss nightclub on May 14 -- where she got into a verbal altercation with Wilson's current girlfriend, Simone Leach.

While Alanda and Simone were arguing, Wilson allegedly grabbed Alanda, threw her to the ground and began punching her in the face.

Alanda claims the attack lasted several minutes before security broke it up.

In her suit, Alanda claims a female friend who was with her at the club was stabbed by a member of Tavon's entourage during the melee. Both women were hospitalized.

Alanda claims she suffered major injuries in the attack -- including a broken nose, a black eye and cuts on her back. She's suing for more than $2.5 MILLION.

The other alleged victim is also suing Tavon -- claiming the NFL player ordered his entourage to "f*ck 'em up" when the initial verbal altercation took place.

We contacted D.C. police who confirm a report was filed at the time of the incident -- but Alanda was the one arrested because Simone claimed she was the real victim.

Wilson is fighting both lawsuits -- he's asked the judge to throw them both out.

We reached out to Wilson's camp for comment. So far, no word back.

John Elway: Sapp's Donating His Brain? 'I'll Donate Mine, Too'

6/22/2017 6:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Denver Broncos legend John Elway was back in L.A. Wednesday night -- and kinda sorta pledged to donate his brain to science ... if he was actually being serious.

Elway was leaving Craig's in West Hollywood when we told him about fellow NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp, who announced Tuesday he'll be donating his brain for concussion research. 

Elway's reaction: "Okay, I'll donate mine too."

It would be huge for a high profile NFL star like Elway -- who also runs the Broncos -- to actually pledge his brain to a CTE study ... but when you watch the clip, it doesn't seem like he's too serious about it. 

Then again, maybe he is. 

Chad Johnson Keyshawn's Helping His Son ... Weed and NFL Don't Mix

6/21/2017 4:06 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chad Johnson says he's all for Keyshawn Johnson showing his son a little tough love ... saying it might be just what the kid needs to keep him from blowing his football career (and some BIG money).

Keyshawn Sr. yanked his boy off Nebraska's football squad after Key Jr. got busted with weed in his dorm -- saying his son needs to "mature" before he can put his pads on again.

We got Chad out at LAX, and asked him if this was great fathering -- or parenting gone too far?

Ocho made it clear he has Key's back -- although he wasn't sure he'd have done the same thing.

BTW -- Key Jr. was one of the best high school wideouts in the country, so we're betting Nebraska coach Mike Riley is hoping dad softens up.

Keyshawn Johnson Yanks Son From Nebraska ... After Weed Bust

6/21/2017 8:28 AM PDT
Breaking News

Keyshawn Johnson has pulled his son, Keyshawn Johnson Jr., off the Nebraska football team (at least temporarily) weeks after the WR was busted for weed in his college dorm.

Key Jr. was one of the top high school WRs in the country -- but ultimately chose Nebraska. 

Earlier this month, the 19-year-old was cited for marijuana possession after university police found pot and drug paraphernalia in his dorm.

Now, Key Sr. -- who played in the NFL for 11 years -- has confirmed that his son is taking an "extended leave of absence" from the football program to "mature" for 6 months.

Keyshawn Sr. told Omaha.com the decision to pull his kid was his alone.

"I never asked him," Johnson Sr. said referencing his son.

"At the end of the day, I don’t think that decision was in his hands. He squandered that decision. He still wants to play football, and he still wants to play for Nebraska. But if you don’t do the things you’re supposed to do, under the guidelines of me, it’s not going to happen."

He added, "One thing you will not do as my son is you will not embarrass Nebraska, you will not embarrass Mike Riley and you will not embarrass this family."

Keyshawn Jr. has since returned home to Calabasas.

QB Baker Mayfield Cuts Plea Deal In Drunk Running from Cops Incident

6/19/2017 9:08 AM PDT
Breaking News

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield -- who got DESTROYED by cops when he drunkenly tried to run from police -- will not have to go to jail. 

As we previously reported, the 2016 Heisman trophy finalist was arrested in Arkansas in Feb. after cops tried to confront him about an alleged violent altercation earlier in the evening ... but the QB went nuts and tried to flee the scene. He was form tackled by a cop who shoulda been a linebacker. 

Officials tell TMZ Sports Mayfield cut a plea deal with prosecutors last week in which he pled guilty to public intoxication, disorderly conduct and fleeing ... and in exchange, they dropped the resisting arrest charge (the most serious charge). 

His punishment -- Mayfield will have to pay $480 in fees and $483 in restitution. That's it. 

It's a good deal considering he was facing several months behind bars if the judge wanted to throw the book at him. 

But seriously ... someone should sign that cop

Rob Gronkowski I Lost My Shirt at the Casino ... Turns Up with Flo Rida

6/19/2017 7:10 AM PDT
Breaking News

Rob Gronkowski proved he's shaved from head to toe -- ripping off his shirt and partying with Flo Rida at Shrine at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut ... and we got the pics.

The New England Patriots TE showed with a party crew and went H.A.M. when Flo started performing -- doing his usual dancing, boozing, removing clothing thing.

Gronk and Flo have been friends for a while -- the rapper was a special guest on Gronk's legendary party cruise last off-season.

Per usual with Gronk, the guy goes on a party tear before the season begins ... and Tom Brady has previously said he doesn't care as long as the guy shows up ready to play when it counts.

No word on if anyone ever found Gronk's shirt.

Legends Football League Brutal KO Blow ... in Lingerie Game

6/16/2017 3:03 PM PDT

Ever see a chick in a thong knock another chick out on her ass with one punch?! 

Well, good news ... it finally happened during a Legends Football League game.

The bad ass with the iron fist is Amanda Hogan -- a defensive back for the Omaha Heart who just got burned for a TD by the Pittsburgh Rebellion.

For some reason, injured Pittsburgh RB Sonia Osselborn -- leg brace and all -- came limping over to get in Hogan's face ... and that's when Hogan unleashed the fury.

The Omaha slugger uncorked a straight right, planting a disoriented Osselborn square on her butt. 

It's violence meets sexy meets athleticism.

Enjoy.

Ex-Giants QB Sued Bragged About 'Happy Endings' ... with Joe Namath

6/15/2017 12:21 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NY Giants quarterback Joe Pisarcik -- who became CEO of the NFL Alumni Association -- is being sued for allegedly sexually harassing 3 female employees ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Pisarcik played 8 years in the NFL before going corporate. He's most well-known for his fumble during the "Miracle at the Meadowlands" game back in 1978.

But now, 3 women who worked under Pisarcik at the NFLAA say he constantly subjected them to intense sexual harassment including butt smacks, lewd comments and unwanted advances.

In the lawsuit, filed in state court in NJ, the women say Pisarcik ruined a Christmas lunch when he started regaling the women about a sex story involving Joe Namath.

The women claim Pisarcik told the group he and Namath picked up 2 ladies one evening and got "happy endings" -- which the women understood to mean "the men were given HJs or BJs."

Pisarcik allegedly then told the plaintiffs about how many women he and Joe banged together when they lived together in Florida back in the day ... and even bragged about nailing Joe's GF one night when the QB passed out.

Ron Jaworski is also mentioned in the lawsuit because he's on the NFLAA's board of directors. The women say Pisarcik would also brag about how many girls Ron banged, too.

In their suit, the woman claim they notified the NFLAA board about the alleged incident in Oct. 2016. They checked back in Dec. after nothing had been done and were told the NFLAA wanted to delay the matter until after the Super Bowl for fear of bad publicity. 

Pisarcik retired in April 2017 -- and 2 of the women claim they were fired in May. They believe they were terminated as retaliation for reporting Pisarcik.

We reached out to both the NFLAA and Pisarcik -- neither elected to comment.

Baker Mayfield Not Suspended ... For Drunk Arrest

6/15/2017 11:48 AM PDT
Breaking News

Oklahoma Sooners star QB Baker Mayfield will NOT be suspended for his drunken incident in February that landed him in jail, but will have to complete alcohol education courses and community service.

The 2016 Heisman trophy finalist was arrested in Fayetteville, AR on Feb. 25 after cops tried to confront him about an alleged violent altercation earlier in the evening ... but the QB went nuts and tried to flee the scene, according to the police report.

Cops eventually tracked Mayfield down and tackled him ... and charged the QB with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and fleeing, which he later pled not guilty to.

Instead of missing playing time, the Sooners decided to punish Mayfield off the field with booze classes and 35 hours of community service.

Mayfield later apologized, calling it the biggest mistake of his life.

Tom Brady's Dad Patriots QB 'Wouldn't Tell Us' If He Suffered Concussions

6/13/2017 6:32 AM PDT
Breaking News

Tom Brady's parents were in the dark about the QB's concussion situation last year -- but his father says the Patriots star wouldn't tell them if he suffered one anyway. 

Tom Brady Sr. spoke with The Boston Globe about the controversy surrounding TB12's brain -- ever since Gisele went on TV and said he definitely had a concussion last year, despite no injury report from the Pats.

"We didn’t get to any games last year, except the Super Bowl, so I wasn’t aware of his health condition throughout the year. He wouldn’t tell us."

Brady Sr. also said the topic of concussions is "inflammatory" -- adding, "It’s a hot-button issue, so if somebody alludes to something, it’s going to be blown up whether it’s a big deal or not."

"I think every parent that sees their kid playing football knows that these guys are big and fast and things can happen that aren’t always good ... Hopefully, if something does happen, it will be dealt with as intelligently as possible."

Hunter Renfrow On Trump Shout-Out: 'Pretty Cool!'

6/12/2017 3:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

How did it feel when President Trump told Hunter Renfrow he was "lucky" he caught the game-winning TD in the National Championship game??? 

"I guess it was lucky, if he said it was lucky!"

That's what the Clemson WR told TMZ Sports on his way out of the White House moments ago after being honored by the President of the United States.  

The 21-year-old said the whole experience was "pretty cool" -- and then explained what it's like to have an entire day named after you!

(FYI, Jan. 24 was Hunter Renfrow Day in Surfside Beach, S.C. -- near where Hunter grew up). 

Congrats!

Donald Trump Praises Clemson Name Drops Bill Belichick

6/12/2017 11:06 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump says Deshaun Watson is going to be a great pro, Hunter Renfrow is "lucky" he caught the game-winning TD and Bill Belichick loves him some Dabo Swinney.

That's the Cliffs Notes version of Trump's speech to the Clemson Tigers football team at the White House on Monday ... where POTUS congratulated the guys for winning the National Championship. 

Trump called out several players from the crowd to come up -- including ex-Tigers QB Desean Watson, who was flown into D.C. by the owners of his new team, the Houston Texans. 

Trump also called the National Championship game against Alabama one of the greatest football games he's ever seen. 

Overall, lots of praise from Trump -- but none of the zingers/dad jokes Barack Obama was known for delivering.  

What's also cool ... the Secret Service agent who greeted the team is ex-Tigers WR Kevin Youngblood -- who played for Clemson in the early 2000's (and had a short stint in the NFL) before dedicating his life to protecting POTUS.

Dean Cain Kaepernick Dissed the Flag ... I'm Still Mad About It

6/12/2017 12:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dean Cain is still upset about Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest -- telling TMZ Sports, "I know a lot of people who fought and died for that flag. I would never disrespect it like that."

We got Superman out in Malibu, and asked the ex-NFL player (it's true, look it up) if he thinks Kaep will ever land a team, given that Seattle -- where some thought he had his best shot -- passed.

That's when Cain opened up ... saying he didn't like the protest one bit -- and it seems pretty obvious it changed his opinion of the QB. 

Of course, this is the very issue some people think is keeping NFL teams from signing Kaep -- fans are still ticked. 

That said, Cain still believes Kaep will get a job in 2017 ... but he might not be on a roster opening day.
