EXCLUSIVE

0607_-janoris-jenkins_gettyThe mother of Janoris Jenkins' two kids says it's time for her to MOVE ON UP ... because now that the NFL star inked a $62 MILLION contract, she wants some upgrades too. 

TMZ Sports has obtained court docs, filed in Florida, which show ... just weeks after the cornerback signed his fat new deal with the NY Giants, Sontaevia Armstrong told the judge she deserves to live in a nice safe place with their kids. 

In fact, she wants Jenkins to spring for a pad in a "man-guarded and gated community." #Chaching!

She also wants Jenkins to pay for private school, health care and security for her and the kids. #ChachingAgain! 

But it's not all about money ... she also wants a court order requiring Jenkins to spend time with the kids. 

According to the docs, Armstrong says she currently gets $4,000 per month in voluntary child support -- but we're guessing that number could skyrocket too ... 'cause you know, $62 MILLION!!!

TMZ Sports has learned ... Baez met with Hernandez on Monday at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center ... where he's doing a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd

Hernandez has been trying like hell to find a way to overturn the conviction -- and, in what appears to be a Hail Mary move, reached out to Baez for a consultation.

Hernandez also has a double murder trial coming up for a separate incident in which he allegedly killed two people in a drive-by shooting.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer called police to report that his GF had attacked him during a domestic dispute Monday night -- but when cops arrived, he ended up in cuffs too. 

The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Dept. says the 23-year-old Super Bowl champ called police to report that his GF had "put her hands on him."

When cops arrived to the scene, they ran both Latimer's and his GF's names through the system, per standard operating procedure -- and noticed a warrant out for Cody stemming from an old traffic violation.

The GF was arrested for assault and disturbing the peace. Latimer was arrested for the outstanding warrant (a failure to appear over a traffic ticket).

To be clear, Latimer was NOT accused of domestic violence.

Latimer ultimately paid a $311.50 fine and was released. He also bailed out his GF.
