Le'Veon Bell says he's reconsidered and would DEFINITELY sign a contract with the NY Jets ... FOR A 9-FIGURE CONTRACT!!!

The Pittsburgh Steelers star was leaving 1 OAK in L.A. on Tuesday night when we talked about the biggest story in his world ... where's he gonna play next year??

Bell had already shot down a fan on Twitter who jokingly offered $60 mil for Bell to come to NY -- and now, Le'Veon's drawing a line in the sand -- $100 MILLION. 

Bell will become a free agent in March if the Steelers don't put the franchise tag on him. Bell has said he'd consider retiring if Pittsburgh tried to lock him down that way. 

Speaking of money, Bell also couldn't believe Rob Gronkowski's home was burglarized and offered a very simple solution to make sure nobody runs up on the TE ever again!

Edwin Jackson's Teammate Hey Trump ... Stop Using My Friend to Push Agenda

2/6/2018 4:31 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump was wrong to use Edwin Jackson's death to push his political agenda ... so says one of Jackson's closest friends, who says POTUS needs to focus on the REAL issue -- drunk driving.

We spoke with Minnesota Vikings LB Antwione Williams -- who was Jackson's college roommate at Georgia Southern. The two have been good friends for years. 

Williams says it made him "sick" to see Trump using Jackson's death as a rallying cry for his immigration policy ... since the guy who allegedly killed Jackson was living in the U.S. illegally. 

Instead, Williams says Trump needs to focus on the drunk driving problem in America -- since the suspect was allegedly nearly three times the legal limit when he struck and killed Jackson. 

Williams also tells TMZ Sports about the kind of person Jackson was like off the field ... and shares his favorite memories from when they lived together.

Meek Mill Eagles Showed Me Solidarity at Super Bowl ... By Playing 'Dreams and Nightmares'

2/6/2018 3:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill was blown away when he watched from prison as his beloved Eagles all danced to his song, "Dreams and Nightmares," during the Super Bowl.

Meek believes the song choice was a statement by the team that he was unjustly thrown in prison for a probation violation. He says, "I was encouraged injustice still matters to people," this according to his lawyer, Joe Tacopina.

The rapper says some members of the team have reached out to him and are fighting for his release. His song became an anthem for the team throughout the playoffs as the team celebrated their victories in the locker room.

And, we're told, he got a huge kick when he saw Karl-Anthony Towns wearing a "Free Meek Mill" jersey on TV during the pregame warm-up.

As for the championship ... "ecstatic."

TMZ Sports obtained the 911 call Rob Gronkowski PERSONALLY made to police when he realized his Boston area house was burglarized while he was at the Super Bowl.

During the call, placed Monday evening when Gronk came back from Minnesota, the Patriots tight end said:

"This isn't an emergency ... this is just uh, Rob Gronkowski calling. And while I was gone, my whole house got robbed while on the Super Bowl trip and I just got back."

Fortunately, Rob's bedroom door was locked and the burglar(s) didn't get inside. However, Rob has two roommates -- and both of their rooms were raided.

Cops have not said what items were stolen -- but have assured the public they are on the hunt for the perps. 

Malcolm Butler Breaks Silence Denies Off-the-Field Incidents

2/6/2018 1:22 PM PST
Breaking News

Malcolm Butler says he did NOT miss curfew during the week of the Super Bowl -- and says all reports that he was punished for off-the-field activities are "false."

The New England Patriots star only saw the field on one play during Sunday's game despite being one of the best players on defense. 

There were reports he missed curfew because he was out at a Rick Ross concert. Others said he had been caught with weed. 

But Butler says it's all B.S. -- explaining, "During Super Bowl week I never attended any concert, missed curfew, or participated any of the ridiculous activities being reported. They are not only false, but hurtful, to me and my family."

"Although I wish I could have contributed more to help my team win, I have to get ready for the next opportunity. Moving forward I will do what I have always done to work hard, and prepare for next season to be the best I can be on and off the field."

Butler says during Super Bowl week, he visited his family every night. 

"Finally, I want to apologize to any offended by my language reported immediately after the game during a very emotional time," Butler said.

"It was out of character for me and my character, and heart with Gods' help is what got me to where I am today. I can't wait for the 2018 season to get here. I will be ready!"

MLB to NFL: Our Playoff Checks Are Bigger Than Yours!!!

2/6/2018 11:28 AM PST

Good news for the Philadelphia Eagles ... they're getting FAT ASS league-issued playoff bonus checks for winning the Super Bowl. 

Bad news ... it's WAYYY less than what the Houston Astros got for winning the World Series.

Here's the math ... each Eagles player gets $28k for the Divisional round game, $51k for the NFC Championship and $112k for winning the Super Bowl. 

Grand bonus total -- $191,000. 

Not a bad haul (in addition to whatever playoff bonuses individual players have in their contracts with the team). 

So, how does it stack up to playoff bonuses in other sports? 

The Houston Astros got $438k per player in league-issued bonus money after their 2017 playoff run. 

Obviously, MLB teams have less players on the roster to play -- but let's take a look at the ratings. 

The Super Bowl reportedly drew in 103.4 million viewers. 

The World Series averaged 18.9 million viewers per game -- but it went SEVEN GAMES! 

And don't forget, before the WS the Astros played a 7-game ALCS with the Yankees. Game 7 reportedly drew 9.9 million viewers. 

As for the NFL, the players agreed to the bonus structure in the collective bargaining agreement -- and the bonus goes up every year. 

So is anyone gonna complain? Probably not. Enjoy the paycheck that most people don't make in a year! 

But don't feel bad for the Pats -- they still get to rake in a nice $56K for making it to the Big Game ... making their total postseason bonus at $135K.

Rob Gronkowski's New England mansion sits behind a gate -- surrounded by spiked fencing -- with a security system ... but it wasn't enough to deter burglars. 

The media has already arrived to Gronk's home to cover the story ... that the Patriots' home was targeted by criminals who raided the place while Rob was in Minnesota for the Super Bowl. 

The Foxborough Police Dept. says it's investigating the incident and hopes to bring the crooks to justice. 

Hopefully, Gronk has some sort of video surveillance system that can help the police -- but we couldn't see any cameras from outside the home.

The Eagles QB got down on his knee (don't worry, it's his good knee) and popped the question to girlfriend Maddie Oberg on a candlelit rooftop somewhere.

Carson posted the celebratory pics on social media and said, "And now Maddie and I both got us a ring 💍😎 can’t wait to marry my best friend!"

FYI, these 2 got together sometime in 2017 ... Maddie popped up on Carson's IG after his ACL surgery.
