"We're here to support the players. We've been in contact with the players and their reps. Counseling is available."

Smith played 9 seasons in the NFL -- all of them with the Saints (he did spend some time with the Patriots but never played in a game for them).

EXCLUSIVE

Willie Roaf is sick and tired of the gun violence in New Orleans ... and now, in the wake of Will Smith's shooting death -- he's demanding change. 

The NFL Hall of Famer was at the airport in D.C. when he told us the entire New Orleans Saints organization is devastated by Smith's death

Roaf also said the entire Saints organization is waiting to hear about plans for a memorial -- with Willie saying he's willing to drop everything and hop on a plane the second plans are finalized.

But Roaf -- who played 9 seasons with the Saints -- says the bigger issue is the gun violence in New Orleans.

"They gotta do something about these guns and gun laws in the cities ... it's real bad right now."

Kim Kardashian Love for Sean Payton ... No Bush? No Problem.

EXCLUSIVE

0331-kardashian-payton-getty-01There were tons of big stars at Craig's Thursday night -- Viola Davis, Paul Haggis, Nick Jonas -- but Kim Kardashian only stopped to talk to one person ... Saints head coach Sean Payton

A TMZ staffer inside the restaurant saw the whole thing unfold ... Kim walked into the joint with her good friend Lil' Kim in tow -- "The entire restaurant stopped to look at them. People were in awe."

Kim noticed Payton sitting with 4 other dudes at a table in the middle of the restaurant -- and walked right past other stars (including Haggis) to say what up! 

Payton got out of his seat and gave Kim a huge hug -- and congratulated her for a recent accomplishment. She was very appreciative. 

Of course, the two go wayyy back ... they first met around 2007 when Kim was dating Reggie Bush who played for Payton's Saints. 

Nearly 10 years later ... and with Bush out of the picture for both parties ... they clearly still like each other. Wonder if she's still a Saints fan?

The two-piece bundle includes a backpack and a tote, both purple python skinned with orange trim featuring Spiller's number 28 stitched inside.

How much for this show of school spirit? A little over $10k.

It's good to be a pro, right C.J.?

"Mr. Jordan did not commit any criminal offense whatsoever and continues to remain cooperative with any law enforcement inquiry into this situation."

0909-cameron-jordan-GETTY-01TMZ Sports has obtained the Cameron Jordan police report -- in which one witness claims the New Orleans Saints player stated in the nightclub, "I can have any bitch that I want."

The BF says he told Jordan, "She was not a bitch. She's my girlfriend."

The man claims Jordan condescendingly asked, "How much do you weigh? 180?"

Cops were notified and began investigating and the sex crimes unit was contacted to look into the alleged ass slap

Cops say there is no surveillance footage of the incident -- but they did note that there were roughly 10 other Saints players in the club that night.

EXCLUSIVE

0323-scott-fujita-darren-sharper-getty-01One of Darren Sharper's former New Orleans Saints teammates is FURIOUS over his 9 year prison sentence -- claiming Sharper is "beyond repulsive" and says the punishment is "way too short."

We spoke with ex-NFL linebacker Scott Fujita -- who won a Super Bowl with Sharper in N.O. in 2009 -- and he couldn't believe prosecutors in Nevada and Arizona will only require Darren to serve 9 years for drugging and raping multiple women. 

"He was a great teammate, a great player," Fujita says ... "But all that aside, it's disgusting and beyond repulsive."

"Look, I'm a dad of 3 daughters ... If he ends up only serving 9 years, it's an absolute shame. It's way too short."

0310_rob_ryan_sexy_son_launchSoooo ... Rob Ryan's son is a male model.  And he has abs. 

For those unfamiliar, Rob is the defensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints ... and he's the twin brother of Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan

The Ryan brothers aren't exactly known for having shredded physiques ... but in the case of Joe Ryan, sometimes the apple does fall far from the tree.

0310_rob_ryan_sexy_son_launch_subJoe recently moved to L.A. for modeling ... and his dad came to town to visit.  

In fact, we ran into the two on their way into the Lakers game at the Staples Center ... but for some reason, we just didn't connect the dots. 

Ex-Super Bowl Champ Investigated Over Body Slam Allegedly Attacked College Student

11/3/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



A former NFL lineman -- who now coaches college football -- is being investigated over footage that allegedly shows him body-slamming someone in the school gym ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The man at the center of the investigation is Charles Grant -- a 2002 1st round NFL draft pick who won a Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints in 2009. He's now the linebackers coach at Bowie State University in Maryland. 

Multiple witnesses tell us Grant is the man in the grey shirt in the video ... who confronted another man in the BSU gym Thursday. We're also told the other man in the video is a student on the football team. 

You can see in the footage things get heated ... and the large man in the grey shirt attacks and body-slams the other man. Even raising his fist at one point ... before pulling back. 

We made multiple calls to Grant and his people -- but never heard back. 

We also reached out to BSU officials who only told us, "The Athletic Department has been made aware of the incident and we have initiated an investigation."

Brad Pitt DON'T GIVE UP ON DREW BREES

10/16/2014 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE


Don't judge Drew Brees by his Fantasy numbers -- he's still "ONE OF THE GREATEST QUARTERBACKS IN THE WORLD" ... so says Brad Pitt.

The Sexiest Man Alive (1995, 2000) was leaving an event in Washington D.C. last night when we asked if he had any advice for the New Orleans Saints QB -- who hasn't exactly been posting those legendary Fantasy stats we're used to.

That's when Pitt -- a HUUUGE Saints fan -- set our TMZ Sports photog straight with a strong defense of the former Super Bowl champ. 

Pitt and Brees happen to be friends -- earlier this year, they were spotted throwing a football around with Matthew McConaughey from the balconies of their expensive Bourbon Street pads. 

But the bottom line, if you're even THINKING about benching Brees on your Fantasy team this weekend -- as one ESPN article suggests -- you might wanna consider Brad's advice first.
