Terry Glenn Dies In Car Crash ... Passenger Survives

11/20/2017 7:31 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Former NFL wide receiver Terry Glenn died in a car crash in Texas, officials confirm. He was 43. 

We're told Glenn was in a single-car accident early Monday morning and was ejected from his vehicle. By the time officials responded to the crash site, it was clear Glenn had passed. He was pronounced dead on arrival. 

Glenn had a passenger in his vehicle -- we're told it was his fiancee -- but she survived the crash. She's currently being treated at the ICU of a local hospital. 

We're told officials plan on doing a full autopsy, including toxicology, to see if they can get more information on what led to the crash. 

Glenn was the 7th overall pick in the 1996 NFL Draft -- taken by the New England Patriots after an impressive run at Ohio State.

He went on to play 12 seasons in the NFL -- with the Patriots, Packers and Cowboys.

Terry also famously caught Tom Brady's very first TD pass in 2001.

Breaking News

Kristin Cavallari doesn't seem happy with Jay Cutler's decision to return to the NFL -- and after her husband was knocked out of Sunday's game with a concussion, she cryptically sounded off. 

"Sometimes I wish I could just say how I really feel about this football shit ... And give commentary about what I’m realllllly thinking," Kristin posted from the family area of Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. 

"How great would that be."

Cutler had retired before the 2017 season -- but signed a 1-year deal with the Miami Dolphins back in August after their starting QB Ryan Tannehill suffered a season-ending injury. 

Earlier this year, Cavallari told TooFab.com her husband was excited to play another year so their kids could see daddy at work. 

Clearly, she isn't feeling the same way ...

Breaking News

Donald Trump has turned his sights on BeastMode -- blasting the NFL star for sitting during the U.S. national anthem -- but standing for the Mexican national anthem -- during his game this weekend.

Marshawn Lynch was clearly looking to send a political message when his Oakland Raiders played the New England Patriots in Mexico City on Sunday.

But it rubbed Trump the wrong way ... with POTUS tweeting:

"Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect!"

"Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down."

EXCLUSIVE

Detroit Lions star Marvin Jones listen up ... sure you might've killed your "American Idol" audition like O.J. in his prime, but that doesn't mean you're gonna win the show ...

UNLESS YOU LISTEN TO RUBEN STUDDARD RIGHT NOW.

We got Studdard, America's "Velvet Teddy Bear" and 'Idol' Season 2 champion, at LAX and asked him to rate Marvin's audition, and give him a little advice for the journey to the top.

First off, Ruben was sold on Marvin's voice -- makes sense, the MAN CAN SANG -- and as far as advice, he used his gorgeous voice to drop some knowledge on the kid.

BTW -- Did you know Ruben Studdard was a former college football player? Neither did we, but now that we think about it, makes sense.

Jameis Winston Uber Driver Is Confused I Wasn't Sitting Next to Her

11/17/2017 10:46 AM PST
Breaking News

Jameis Winston says reports he sexually assaulted a female Uber driver are FALSE -- and claims he was NOT the only person in the car that night as the driver has claimed. 

Winston just tweeted about the BuzzFeed report in which Uber driver Kate claims Winston grabbed her crotch during a rowdy drive home from the Scottsdale bar scene in March 2016.

Kate claimed Winston was in the front passenger seat when the alleged assault went down. Winston is saying Kate is wrong about the allegations AND who was next to her that night.

"The story falsely accuses me of making inappropriate contact with this driver," Winston says ... "I believe the driver was confused as to the number of passengers in the car and who was sitting next to her."

"The accusation is false, and given the nature of the allegation and increased awareness and consideration of these types of matters, I am addressing this false report immediately."

"While I am certain that I did not make any inappropriate contact, I don’t want to engage in a battle with the driver and I regret if my demeanor or presence made her uncomfortable in any way."

The part that's unclear ... is Jameis leaving the door open to the possibility that whoever was in the passenger seat DID sexually assault the driver? He's not saying it didn't happen ... he's just saying, "It wasn't me."

Sources connected to Winston tell us he's adamant there were 2 other people in the Uber with him that night. 

Jameis Winston Allegedly Groped Uber Driver's Crotch ... QB Denies Claim

11/17/2017 9:24 AM PST
Breaking News

Jameis Winston is adamantly denying grabbing a female Uber driver by the crotch during a March 2016 ride despite a complaint the driver made to the company ... but now the NFL is investigating. 

The woman who identifies herself as Kate told BuzzFeed she picked Jameis up from a nightlife area in Scottsdale, Arizona around 2 AM -- and Jameis got in the front passenger seat.

During the ride, Kate says the Tampa Bay Bucs star was out of control -- screaming homophobic comments to pedestrians -- before requesting a stop at a Mexican restaurant. 

While in the drive-thru line to pick up food, Kate says Winston "reached over and put his fingers on my crotch. It wasn't accidental."

Kate says she wasn't just "creeped out" ... "I was frozen."

After the ride, Kate says she filed a complaint with Uber but did not go to police because she feared backlash from NFL fans. 

Winston's camp says the allegations are completely false -- "We categorically deny this allegation. It is our understanding the Uber driver was unable to identify the specific individual who allegedly touched this driver inappropriately. The only reason his name is being dragged in to this is that his Uber account was used to call the ride."

Uber says Jameis has been banned from using the app in the future.  

The NFL has confirmed to TMZ Sports the league is investigating the situation. An NFL rep tells us, "The allegation was shared with the NFL and we have reached out to Uber to request any information they may have."

Tony Gonzalez says he was never sexually harassed in an NFL locker room ... but he's glad all the Hollywood scandals are putting athletes on notice.

"Stuff has changed. You gotta be more careful, and it's a good thing," Tony told TMZ Sports.

Gonzalez told us he's only experienced "guys in the shower messing around" ... and says all his former teammates knew not to cross that line.

Good to hear that from Tony -- considering he's serious about a career on the big screen.

Terrell Owens Wentz Is a Better QB Than McNabb Sorry Not Sorry, Donovan!!

11/16/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Terrell Owens says he'd take Carson Wentz over Donovan McNabb -- and he doesn't give a damn what his former quarterback thinks about it. 

We got T.O. out in Beverly Grove ... and asked the former Eagles wideout to pick between the Eagles superstar QBs.

It was a tough call for Terrell, but ultimately -- "I'd probably go with Carson Wentz."

But T.O. says he ain't dissin' Donovan ... Wentz is just that good.

"Look at what he's done, and what is this -- year two? The upside for him is through the roof. He's definitely making his case for (MVP)," Owens told TMZ Sports.

And if the truth hurts -- that's McNabb's problem.

"So what? If he is, it is what it is."

T.O. told us him and Donovan squashed their beef several years back ... but maybe time doesn't heal all wounds??

Ricky Williams To Colin Kaepernick: Time to Move On from NFL

EXCLUSIVE

Ricky Williams says Colin Kaepernick should consider closing the book on his NFL career -- saying bluntly, "If they don't want you, go do something else."

"I'd rather be somewhere I'm celebrated rather than where I'm tolerated," the ex-NFL superstar told TMZ Sports out in Venice, CA. 

Williams says he hopes Kaep plays again -- but really thinks the QB needs to focus his energy on life after football. 

BTW, he also gives us his best Kaepernick joke ... and it's definitely one a white person probably shouldn't say.

Ezekiel Elliott I GIVE UP!! Withdraws Appeal, Will Serve 6-Game Suspension

11/15/2017 2:18 PM PST
Breaking News

It's all over. For real this time. 

Ezekiel Elliott has officially waved the white flag ... and has agreed to serve the NFL's 6-game domestic violence suspension -- effective immediately. 

The Dallas Cowboys star had been fighting like hell in court ... filing every possible appeal in the hopes of eventually having a judge throw out the punishment since Zeke denied the allegations and was never convicted of a crime. 

But just like Tom Brady ... Zeke eventually decided enough was enough and instructed his legal team to lay down the sword. 

"In consultation with the NFLPA and his lawyers, and after careful deliberation and review of the recent 2nd Circuit decisions, Mr. Elliott has decided to forego any further appeals and will serve the remaining suspension," his agents said in a statement.

"This decision arises from a practical assessment of the current legal landscape. Mr. Elliott's desire for closure in this matter is in his best interest, as well as the best interests of his teammates, family and friends."

"This decision is in no way an admission of any wrongdoing, and Mr. Elliott is pleased that the legal fight mounted by he and his team resulted in disclosing many hidden truths regarding this matter as well publicly exposing the NFL's mismanagement of its disciplinary process."

"Mr. Elliott will maximize this time away from the game and come back even stronger both on and off the field. He intends to release a final personal statement in the upcoming weeks and until then we have no further comment."
