Cam Newton CUSTOM DABBING CLEATS ... For Turkey Day Game

11/26/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-main-cam-newton-tmz-01Cam Newton could deliver an epic SCREW YOU to all his anti-dabbing critics -- 'cause he's got a pair of custom cleats coming his way for his Thanksgiving day game ... featuring Cam doing his dance. 

Here's what we know ... the cleats were commissioned by Under Armour -- which sponsors Cam -- and designed by two artists, Dez Customs and Kreative Customs. 

We're told the artists were informed Cam wanted a special pair of custom kicks when he takes the field against the Cowboys. 

The result? Imagery of Cam doing his signature moves ... dabbing and striking his Superman pose. The shoes also include the words "grateful" and "thankful."

1125-sub-cam-newton-tmz-01We're told he's expected to wear 'em for the game ... but there's always a chance he could change his plans. 

Cam's dancing has been a lightning rod for critics lately -- so it'll be one hell of a statement if he straps on the shoes on one of the biggest stages in sports ... the Turkey Day classic. 

For the record, we're fans.

11/25/2015 6:19 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The concrete was spattered with blood outside the Miami Gardens home where St. Louis Rams WR Stedman Bailey was shot Tuesday night ... after a drive-by shooting left him and another man hospitalized. 

A neighbor who says he spoke with police claims he was told officers counted 33 shell casings at the scene. 

Bailey and another man were sitting in a car outside Bailey's family home when a car rolled up and opened fire at 8:45 PM ... striking Bailey twice in the head. The other driver was hit multiple times, reportedly while trying to shield two children in the car from the gunfire. 

According to cops, the victims drove themselves to a nearby hospital for treatment. Bailey is listed in critical but stable condition and is set to undergo surgery early Wednesday morning. 

Bailey's neighbor says the NFL player has a good reputation in the area and was not known for being involved in dangerous activity -- "he's a good guy."

So far, no arrests have been made -- but cops are on the hunt for a light colored Buick Regal.

breaking news

1124-johnny-manziel-benched-GETTY-01The Cleveland Browns say they're "disappointed" in Johnny Manziel for hitting the club scene during the team's bye week ... and have demoted him from starter to 3rd string QB. 

Browns head coach Mike Pettine issued a statement saying, "Josh McCown will be the starting quarterback on Monday night against the Ravens."

"I’m especially disappointed in his actions and behavior because he has been working very hard. The improvements from last year to this year have been tremendous but he still has to consistently demonstrate that he has gained a good understanding of what it takes to be successful at the quarterback position on this level."

"Everyone in this organization wants what is best for Johnny just like we do for every player in our locker room. It goes well beyond the field. We are going to continue to support him in every way possible, but at this point, we’ve decided it’s best to go with Josh as the starter going forward.”

As we previously reported, Manziel hit up at least two clubs in Austin, TX on Thursday and Friday -- partying with bottles of champagne. 

It was clearly concerning to Browns brass considering Manziel entered treatment earlier this year after a hard partying streak.

Ray Rice Listen Up, Greg Hardy ... Here's What I Can Teach You

11/19/2015 9:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Dallas Cowboys star and alleged domestic abuser Greg Hardy still has a lot to learn, and Ray Rice believes he's the right man to teach him.

Rice was on WFAN's "Boomer & Carton" Thursday morning and they asked if it bothered him that guys like Hardy and Adrian Peterson are getting 2nd chances while he's still waiting to get his shot.

Rice talked about using his off time to improve himself as a person, and suggested Hardy needs to do the same. Critics have said Hardy was unfairly cut a break after allegedly beating the hell out of his then girlfriend ... and Rice thinks he can counsel him -- "I would tell him everything that transpired in my life so he can understand the severity of domestic violence."

Give it a listen ... it's interesting. You'd think Rice would be angry about not getting a 2nd chance, but instead he sounded more like a sage adviser.

You can see Randle do the over the shoulder look as he puts the undies in his bag. He then moves over to the cologne section and pulls the same move with a bottle of Gucci Guilty Black. 

BTW, dude took the TESTER BOTTLE!!! 

As Randle tries to casually slip out the door, security moves in and takes him into custody. He eventually pled guilty to misdemeanor theft and was sentenced to 6 months probation. 

Randle was cut by the Cowboys earlier this season and is currently looking for another NFL job so he can PAY for his cologne the next time he hits the mall.
