NFL Star DeAndre Levy

Insane Wing Walking Video

... Dude's a Maniac!

3/31/2015 4:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Here's CRAZY video of NFL linebacker DeAndre Levy ... WING-WALKING on a bi-plane ... while only relying on a tiny little safety rope in case he slipped during the flight. 

Again, this video is NUTS!!! 

Levy is no scrub ... the Detroit Lions stud is one of the best linebackers in the league and he's heading into the final year of his 3-year $9.75 million contract. 

So, he's got a lot to live for. 

Still, Levy decided to risk it all for the thrill of some in-flight stunts -- as the pilot of the plane executes some barrel rolls and crazy inverted flying tricks. 

Ya gotta wonder how the Lions feel about Levy's hobby -- considering they wouldn't even let Matt Stafford ride a motorcycle when he signed his big contract.

Jay Glazer

NFL Overreacted On Falcons

... Chill, It's Just Crowd Noise

3/31/2015 11:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jay Glazer says the NFL went WAY TOO HARD on the Atlanta Falcons -- claiming a $350k fine and a docked 2016 draft pick was a crazy overreaction for illegally piping crowd noise into their stadium during games.

The "NFL on FOX" star was leaving Craig's in West Hollywood Monday night when he told us Roger Goodell and his crew could've handled the situation a lot better ... if RG woulda just picked up the phone and called the owner. 

"Just call em up ... say, 'Knock it off! Enough! Just don't do it!'"

Instead, Glazer says ... the NFL went way over-the-top and clearly Jay feels it's damaging the league. 

"Not everything has to be a freakin' congressional hearing. You don't need a big investigation into everything."

As far as the Falcons go ... team officials said the noise scandal was "embarrassing" and they will not appeal the punishment.

Aaron Hernandez's Fiancee

He Cheated on Me

... And I Let It Go!

3/30/2015 10:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Aaron Hernandez essentially had a hall pass to cheat on his fiancée whenever he pleased ... because she says she knew all about it ... but decided to look the other way.  

Shayanna Jenkins testified for the second day at Hernandez's murder trial where he stands accused of killing Odin Lloyd back in 2013. 

Jenkins testified that she broke things off with Hernandez after she found evidence that he was banging other chicks on his cell phone. But Jenkins says she got back with Hernandez anyway because their bond was too strong.

After they reconciled, Jenkins says she decided to "compromise on his behavior, and that included infidelity and everything that came along with that."

Jenkins also testified to throwing away a box at the behest of Hernandez the day after Lloyd was killed. Jenkins says she does not know what was in the box and never looked inside.

NFL's Donte Stallworth

I'm a National Security Reporter

'I Wanna Cover Things That Matter'

3/30/2015 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He played in the NFL for 10 years before scoring a job as a reporter for the Huffington Post -- but Donte Stallworth says he chose politics over sports because, "I wanna cover things that actually matter."

Stallworth took a gig working the "national security" beat for the media outlet back in September ... and says he's really enjoying the experience so far. 

"The whole introduction into that has been fairly interesting," Donte says ... "Being an ex-NFL player, a lot of people have been willing to help me."

So, why not try to dip into the news world by taking on sports ... a genre where he's already got an edge over everyone else??

"I wanna cover things that actually matter. I love sports, but there's a lot going on in the world."

Bisexual NFL Player

'Michael Sam Doesn't Speak for All of Us'

3/30/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bisexual NFL Player Michael SamTMZ Sports just spoke with a bisexual NFL player who's upset with Michael Sam -- telling us he was OFFENDED when Sam said other gay men in the league are less courageous because they don't want to come out.

The player -- who didn't want to be identified by name -- has played in the league for several seasons and says he's open about his sexuality with close friends. 

But when the player read Sam's recent comments about gay men in the league -- he was offended. 

Specifically, the player was upset when Sam said ... "I respect the players that did reach out to me and had the courage to tell me that they were also gay, but they do not have the same courage as I do to come out before I even played a down in the NFL."

The player's response -- "As a bisexual man, I just feel like Michael Sam does not speak for all gay men."

"He has his own opinion ... but DON'T say that we don't have the courage to come out. It's totally wrong. Just speak for yourself. No one else." 

"It's no one's business what my sexuality is. You should like me for me ... not for who I choose to be with."

The player continued ... "I feel the NFL isn't ready for people to be open about it. Or the General Managers for that matter." 

Despite those opinions, the player says he believes Sam DID get a fair shot to make a team -- "I just don't think he performed well."

Joe Haden must know a good smize when he sees it ... 'cause the NFL superstar is so sure he's found  "America's Next Top Model" he's leading a social media campaign to get that man on the show.

Haden, along with fellow pigskin pros Carlos Dunlap and Jason Pierre-Paul have taken to Instagram in support of a Miami model named  "Prince" who's trying to score a spot on ANTM's upcoming Season 22.

The three men -- who have over 450k IG followers between them -- each recently posted modeling shots of Prince to their pages along with messages encouraging casting directors to put him on.

We spoke to Prince -- who knows Haden and the other players from partying in Miami -- and he tells TMZ Sports their efforts have sparked some legit interest in him that might otherwise have been hard to come by.

"All those casting directors saw it and it opened the door to conversations with them."

Prince -- who made a mystery trip to L.A. this past weekend -- couldn't tell us whether or not he's made the show yet (sworn to secrecy) but says the NFL love definitely put him on the map.

"1,000% it's helped ... i got tons of new followers because of [the players] and in this business, it's all about exposure."

Better start perfecting that walk young man.

EXCLUSIVE

Cam Newton is totally gonna freak when he sees this ...

His ex-Carolina Panthers teammate Chris Ogbonnaya told TMZ Sports he pulled off the most elaborate prank ever on the superstar QB ... and this video officially marks the end of it.

Ogbonnaya -- who now plays for the NY Giants -- was leaving Mastro's this week when we asked the running back about the best prank he's pulled since he's been in the NFL.

He then told us about how a slight mix-up led to Cam believing he was raised in Nigeria, and how Chris turned that into an epic gag that never ended ... even when he ran into Newton at the Super Bowl last month.

In fact, the only way Newton will learn Ogbonnaya is actually from TEXAS ... is if he watches this video. 

All good things come to an end ...
