KC Chiefs Trainer 'On Cloud 9' After Learning He Saved Gay NFL Player's Life

6/25/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Here he is ... the KC Chiefs trainer who helped save a closeted gay NFL player from killing himself, David Price, tells TMZ Sports he was "elated" to find out he had such a positive impact.

The player is ex-offensive lineman Ryan O'Callaghan -- who recently came out publicly on Outsports.com after keeping his sexuality a secret during his entire football career.

O'Callaghan -- who played for the Patriots and the Chiefs -- says he was in a dark place toward the end of his career and was on the verge of suicide ... until Price stepped in.

O'Callaghan says Price simply cared enough to talk to him and realized something was wrong -- and convinced him to get help from a team psychologist. That got the ball rolling for O'Callaghan who says he's now in a MUCH healthier mental state and loves life.

We spoke with Price who says he was unaware how important he was to O'Callaghan until he read the Outsports article this week ... but couldn't be more proud of his former player.

"I was just elated, I mean on Cloud 9 that I had that much impact on somebody's life in a positive way."

Price says helping O'Callaghan was a "no brainer" -- and he's confident other people in the league would have done the same thing.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes Throws a 96 mph Fastball

5/8/2017 12:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

KC Chiefs rookie QB Patrick Mahomes has a rocket for an arm -- in fact, he once threw a baseball 96 MPH!!! 

Mahomes was a baseball star in high school before focusing on football -- plus his father, Pat Mahomes, was an MLB pitcher for 12 years.

So, we asked if he could still fire the rock -- and he told us he really believes he could hit 100+ if he got back in the baseball groove.

For the record, Patrick once threw a football 62 mph -- on video.

If he says he can hit 100 mph with a baseball ... we kinda believe him.

Breaking News

Tony Gonzalez is still giving back to the Chiefs -- training one of the team's young tight ends who's currently wearing TG's 88 jersey!!!

The future Hall of Famer rolled into Jay Glazer's Unbreakable gym in L.A. this week to train up Ross Travis -- a former Penn State basketball player who signed with K.C. in 2015 in the hopes his skills can translate to the football field. 

Tony and Ross went over blocking techniques -- while Sylvester Stallone was right next to the guys doing his own training regimen. 

By the way, Ross didn't do much on the field last season (playing behind stud Travis Kelce) but he killed it in locker room basketball trick shots.

K.C. Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris was arrested for weed on Tuesday -- when a routine traffic stop in Missouri went very poorly.

Cops say they found more than 35 grams -- which is considered a felony in Missouri and carries serious penalties including 7 years in prison.

Look, 35 grams isn't a small amount of weed ... but it ain't exactly Snoop Dogg territory either. 

He was booked for felony possession of weed and drug paraphernalia.

EXCLUSIVE

Attention thirsty ladies, if you're looking for lovin' from NFL stud Travis Kelce ... you're gonna have to do it the old-fashioned way ... 'cause Kelce says his reality TV dating career is OVER for good.

We got Kelce out in Beverly Hills and wanted to know two things from the stud pass catcher ... did he actually find love on the first season of "Catching Kelce," and if not, will he try again another season?

Travis says that's gonna be a negative on both ... telling our guy he doesn't think the whole "reality TV thing" is for him.

BTW -- we also ask who he thinks has more game out of him and Gronk, and Travis actually answers.

Larry Johnson to Tyreek Hill 'Don't Blow Your 2nd Chance ... Like I Did'

1/15/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-KC Chiefs running back Larry Johnson says he knows what Tyreek Hill is going through as a guy with off-the-field legal issues ... but tells TMZ Sports he wants Hill to learn from his mistakes.

"I've lived through the same thing he's lived through," Johnson tells us ... "I just ran my second chances dry."

Of course, Johnson was a beast on the field -- but he was arrested multiple times during his career for incidents that included alleged violent run-ins with women.

As for Hill, he got in trouble before his NFL career began -- when he pleaded guilty to domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend in 2015.

Johnson has advice for Hill moving forward, which essentially boils down to this -- don't squander your 2nd chance.

Mark Wahlberg Rooting for the Chiefs?? Yeah.

EXCLUSIVE

New England Patriots superfan Mark Wahlberg says he'll be cheering on Alex Smith and the rest of the KC Chiefs this weekend ... and why? 

We're guessing he thinks they're an easier path to the Super Bowl than the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

Of course, Mark's first love is Tom Brady and Co. ... and he knows the priority is beating the Houston Texans (easy, right?) -- but who do you want in the AFC Championship? Pittsburgh or K.C.?

For the record, New England already BEAT the Steelers this year -- so, what's the big concern?

Raiders and Chiefs fans.

A bunch of rival fans started brawling in the stands at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City Thursday night -- with people getting thrown down the bleachers ... it's gnarly. 

Eventually cops responded and broke the whole thing up ... but not before some of the pugilists took some heavy shots to the face.

No word if any arrests were made. We're working on it.

The coolest part? The image of Kelce printed on silk on the lining of the jacket. 

"From a style perspective, he’s a fun-going guy," Wang tells us, "We weren’t interested in going with the business usual charcoal or navy.”

Wang's made "5 or 6" suits for Kelce ... so there's a good chance we'll see more of his work on future episodes.

EXCLUSIVE

Travis Kelce says he's REALLY dating one of the women he met on his reality dating show -- but had to weed out the fame-hungry thots before he could find his special lady. 

The KC Chiefs tight end just finished taping "Catching Kelce" -- where 50 chicks from 50 states competed for his love, affection and NFL salary (kidding on the last one, maybe). 

The shocking part ... Travis says he found a real-life KEEPER ... and he's still dating her right now (even though the cameras stopped rolling). 

Now for the real challenge -- the show starts in October ... can they stay together (and keep it a secret) until the show airs???

Tony Gonzalez Jock Blocks Travis Kelce Dating Show 'Doesn't He Have A Girlfriend?'

2/5/2016 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

File This Under: Really, Bro?

Tony Gonzalez might have just ruined Travis Kelce's chances to bang thirsty reality show chicks ... by uttering the words no dude on a dating show wants to hear ... "doesn't he have a girlfriend?"

Gonzalez was out enjoying the Super Bowl 50 festivities when we asked him his thoughts on his buddy -- Chiefs TE Travis Kelce -- getting his own dating reality show on E!.

It's a pretty big deal ... the show "Catching Kelce" will document the young stud as he invites 50 women from all 50 states to take their shot with the Pro Bowler ... and we're told that some of the women have yet to be cast.

The guys out there won't believe this clip ... Gonzalez OBLITERATES the bro code ... inadvertently diming out his pal, and seriously making us wonder if he's ever been anyone's wingman.

BTW, it's unclear if Kelce actually does have a GF ... but we're sure of one thing ... WTF TONY!?
