Jesus walks ... in Philly. And he's an Eagles fan.

Our guy ran into J.C. at the NFL Draft -- where he was offering up prayers for Myles Garrett, despite the fact he's probably going to the Browns.

Joe McKnight Shooter Football Star was Roid Raging ... Before Shooting

4/27/2017 1:30 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

The man who shot and killed Joe McKnight says the ex-NFL player was fueled by a mix of steroids, pain pills and weed during their fatal confrontation ... and he only pulled his gun out of fear.

Ronald Gasser filed new court docs in the murder case against him -- claiming he learned McKnight "was under the influence of marijuana, pain pills, and anabolic steroids at the time [he] attacked Mr. Gasser."

Unclear where Gasser got his information -- it seems his legal team may have had access to McKnight's toxicology results following the autopsy.

However, in the docs Gasser paints a picture of a man in full steroid rage -- saying McKnight was "violent and erratic" following an intense chase through the streets of Louisiana on Dec. 1. 

Gasser says he did NOTHING that he would consider "aggressive" to provoke McKnight -- and says it was Joe who was screaming and yelling like a maniac.

Gasser says he ultimately shot Joe while "fearing for his life."

At the time of the shooting, McKnight was a pro football player in Canada -- a running back for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

The CFL has a strict anti-steroid policy and tests players -- though it's unclear if McKnight ever tested positive for anabolic steroids.

EXCLUSIVE

New Orleans Saints legend Deuce McAllister says he's fired up about Adrian Peterson joining the squad -- because he'll be an excellent addition ... as a backup.

The Saints just finalized a 2 year, $7 mil contract with the future Hall of Famer -- but it doesn't guarantee he'll start. In fact, when we asked Deuce who's number one on the depth chart, it ain't AP.

"It's Mark Ingram, it's not even a question."

Gareon Conley Video Shows Rape Accuser with NFL Prospect at Bar

4/26/2017 6:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The woman accusing Gareon Conley of rape was friendly with the NFL prospect at a bar roughly 25 minutes before they ended up in a hotel room together ... and TMZ Sports has the video.

The footage shows Conley leaving the Barley House in Cleveland around 2:20 AM on April 9th ... with the accuser and her female friends following closely behind. At one point the accuser reaches out and touches Gareon's back. 

A few minutes later, Conley has his arm around another woman in front of the bar and the accuser catches up from behind and grabs his arm. Gareon looks back and appears to hold her hand. 

The video is critical because it appears to contradict what the accuser told police -- that she first met Conley in an elevator at the Westin hotel around 2:45 AM. 

Both sides agree they ended up in a hotel room at the Westin together. She claims Conley raped her. Conley adamantly denies the allegation

We reached out to the accuser's attorney, who stands by his client's claims that she was sexually assaulted ... but says the police report that was released to the public is "incomplete."

Gareon Conley Rape Allegations Are 'Completely False' 'I Did Not Commit a Crime'

4/26/2017 12:08 PM PDT
Breaking News

Gareon Conley says he is NOT a rapist -- and says he has video evidence that will help him prove the allegation against him is "completely false."

The ex-Ohio State cornerback -- and projected 1st round NFL Draft pick -- just issued a statement denying the claims in a police report filed in Cincinnati ... and says the accuser is trying to ruin his life. 

"The allegations against me concerning the night of April 8/9 that have recently been reported in multiple media outlets are completely false."

"I did not commit a crime and have not been charged with a crime."

Conley says he prides himself in doing things "the right way" -- adding, "The things being said about me and what happened that night are not true and don’t fit my character at all."

"I realize that I put myself in the situation and I could have used better judgment. However, I have worked tirelessly to put myself in position to have the honor of being an NFL draft pick and these untrue allegations are putting a huge cloud over my name and the NFL Draft."

"These allegations appear to be an attempt to ruin this once in a lifetime experience for me and my family."

"There were several witnesses, including another female, who were present the entire time and have given statements that give an accurate account of what took place. We also have video evidence that further discredits and disprove other versions of these events. I am upset but realize that I am powerless when false accusations are made and people try to convict you in the court of public opinion. It’s sad that your name can get dragged through the mud based upon untrue and malicious allegations alone."

"I am completely confident that as the facts actually come out my name will be cleared."

"I was excited about participating in the Thursday’s draft but I have decided that i would be selfish for me to stay and be a distraction to the NFL, the other players and their families who have worked just as hard as me to enjoy the experience so I will not be in attendance."

"I hope and look forward to the honor of being an NFL player and working to be the best representative, player, person, and teammate that I can be for the team and the community I will be in."

Aaron Hernandez Lawyers File Motion to Dismiss Murder Conviction

4/25/2017 11:12 AM PDT
Breaking News

That was quick!

Just days after Aaron Hernandez's death, his legal team has already filed a motion to have his murder conviction officially dismissed ... as part of a Massachusetts law that everyone's talking about.

As we previously reported, Hernandez's team believes that a concept called abatement ab initio requires the court to throw out Hernandez's conviction in the Odin Lloyd case because Aaron died before he could finish the appeal process.

Hernandez's legal team, led by Jose Baez, has now filed to make that happen -- but it won't come without opposition.

The Bristol County D.A.'s office tells TMZ Sports, "We have been reviewing the matter and intend to file an opposition to the defense motion within the next week."

Hernandez died on Wednesday after officials found him hanging in the prison cell where he was serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd.
