8/23/2016 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-devin-hester-gettyDevin Hester ain't hanging up his cleats just yet ... telling TMZ Sports he definitely plans to be in the NFL next year ... and nearly half the league is interested. 

The 3-time All-Pro return specialist was released by the Atlanta Falcons this past July after battling a toe injury ... but that hasn't kept Hester from gunning for a return this season.

"I can't say much now, but I'm getting close," Hester says. "(I) got 14 teams waiting on me."

He wouldn't say which teams ... but Hester is considered the best returner in NFL history ... so it's no surprise there's a ton of squads looking to sign him. 

Get this man back in the league ... it's Madden season.

Antonio Cromartie New Colts Cash Well Spent ... Pays Off Back Child Support

8/23/2016 2:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-antonio-cromartie-tmz-01update_graphic_red_barCromartie's rep says the only reason he didn't pay the support is because he was fighting Pierre over custody. The rep claims she had ongoing legal issues, and says Cro felt Alonzo wasn't safe with her. update_grey_gray_barAntonio Cromartie took his $3 million deal from the Coltsand immediately used it to settle a child support dispute with a baby mama ... and avoided a possible arrest in the process.

Cromartie was delinquent on child support payments to Rosemita Pierre -- the mother of Alonzo, his oldest child ... aka #1 of 13. According to docs, AC was ordered to pay her $4,000 per month, starting in January 2016 but failed to do so.

He was due in a Florida court last week to either pay up or explain why he couldn't -- but Cro was a no-show. Then the cavalry arrived in the form of the Colts one-year contract ... which he signed Monday. 

We're told Cromartie made a payment Tuesday afternoon. It's unclear how much he forked over, but it was enough for the judge to withdraw a warrant that had been issued earlier in the day.

Crisis averted. 

Tre Mason's Mom to Cops Football Destroyed My Son ... 'He's Not Himself Anymore'

8/23/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tre Mason's mother has told police ... her son should NOT be playing football anymore -- because the head injuries he suffered in the NFL have had a devastating impact on his mental health. 

TMZ Sports has obtained police footage from a July 27th incident when cops cited the L.A. Rams running back for illegally riding his ATV around his neighborhood in Palm Beach, Florida. 

When they got to his home, cops told his family they were concerned Mason was too busy "f***ing around" and "should be playing football."

That's when Tre's mother dropped some real talk on the cops. 

"No, he actually shouldn't," she said ..."because this is the [side of] football that nobody knows about."

"He's 22 in a 10-year-old's mindset right now ... Tre's not himself at all."

Tre's mother says the family could see an obvious change in Tre's personality after the 2015 NFL season ended.

As we previously reported, Tre has been at the center of several police incidents in the past few months -- and his family clearly believes football is the root of the problem.

The Rams say they have not been in touch with Mason since last season -- and judging by the video, it doesn't seem like they'll ever hear from him again.

EXCLUSIVE

0816_rg3_Rebecca-Liddicoat_Grete-Sadeiko_tmz_instagram_gettyRobert Griffin III and his wife have been separated for months -- after she found out he was dating a new woman ... and sources connected to the situation tell us she's absolutely devastated.

Sources close to the estranged couple tell us RG3 first met Florida State track star Grete Sadeiko through Instagram back in January ... roughly 7 months after his wife, Rebecca Liddicoat, gave birth to their daughter.

We're told the social media relationship turned real ... and when Rebecca found out about her in April, she was pissed.

The two separated shortly after. They haven't lived together in months. 

But get this ... one solid source tells us Rebecca was still working on trying to save the marriage as recently as this week ... and was blindsided on Tuesday by news that RG3 is "in the process of filing for divorce."

Now, with RG3 getting Grete's name tattooed on his arm, we're told Rebecca has given up on a possible reconciliation.

Bottom line ... this was no amicable split.

EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained the 911 call made by a witness who saw ex-NFL lineman Barret Robbins on a violent rampage in Florida last week ... and it sounds terrifying.

The caller initially reports a "huge drunk man just literally walked into (a pub) punched this kid in the face" in the late hours of August 8th.

We broke the story ... the former Oakland Raiders lineman (who was listed at 6'3", 320 during his playing days) was leaving a bar in Boca Raton when the rampage began.

The caller says Robbins was yelling to himself and waving his hands around -- before attacking two innocent women outside of a nearby hotel.

"He just punched a woman. He just punched a woman outside of Best Western. Are you OK?! We called the police ... We have to do something. A bunch of people are about to jump him. I have to go, please hurry."

Cops raced to the scene and Robbins was eventually arrested for felony battery. He was transported to a jail and then a mental health facility.

Robbins has a well-known history of mental health issues -- which became public after he went MIA in the hours before Super Bowl XXXVII.

Keyshawn Johnson's Wife I'm Divorcing His Ass ... Reconciliation Is Off!

8/15/2016 11:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Keyshawn Johnson's wife says her marriage to the ex-NFL star is OVER -- again -- and she's reigniting the divorce from the WR ... almost 2 years after they tied the knot.  

Remember, Jennifer Conrad initially filed divorce docs just 7 months after their 2014 wedding -- but the couple reconciled and everything seemed like it was gonna work out. 

0815_jennifer_johnson_instagram_swipeFast forward to Sunday night ... when Conrad -- who has 2 kids with Keyshawn -- was seemingly bragging about the fact she was pulling the plug again

Here's what we know ... Conrad never pulled the divorce docs when the two reconciled last year -- but there hasn't been a hearing in the case since December. 

Last night, Conrad was adamant she was going back to court to jump-start the proceedings. 

The two have had a rocky relationship to say the least -- besides the multiple breakups, Keyshawn was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence for smashing her phone in 2014. But the charges were later dropped. 

We reached out to Key for comment -- so far, no word back.
