Lawrence Taylor I Can't Condemn Jameis Winston But He Should Know Better

6/24/2018 12:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lawrence Taylor says he's not ready to condemn Jameis Winston for the Uber incident that led to his suspension ... but tells TMZ Sports the QB should've NEVER put himself in that spot.

Winston has been suspended by the NFL for three games after the NFL did an investigation into allegations that he groped an Uber driver back in 2016.

LT had his fair share of off-the-field turmoil during his playing days ... so, when we talked with him out in Georgia he stopped short at condemning Winston, but still had words for the youngster.

"Especially with the problems he's had you'd think he'd make better judgements than that."

FYI -- Winston's problems include a sexual assault allegation, and two shoplifting incidents before this latest situation.

Still ... LT has his own opinions about the accuser's motives, saying, you can't rule out someone that might be looking for quick fame and a quick buck.

"I just hope it's not a situation where someone wants to be in this #MeToo genre."

Philip Rivers Can Play Just As Long As Tom Brady ... Says Melvin Gordon

6/24/2018 12:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Forget the Tom Brady-playing-until-45 debate ... Melvin Gordon says there's a GRIP of NFL QBs who can play to that age -- including his teammate, Philip Rivers!!

The Chargers superstar told us it's really not that hard for dudes like Brady, Rivers, Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson to play forever ... 'cause they're studs who don't ever get hit like running backs do.

"I feel like those guys ... they quit when they want to, man," Gordon told TMZ Sports.

"As long as their arm's working, and they feel like they can throw and they can be in there, there's going to be someone that want them."

For the record ... the oldest QB to ever start a game was the Falcons' Steve DeBerg at 44 years and 279 days old.

If Gordon wants to see his boy Rivers break that mark ... there's only about 3,000 days left to go.

Tomi Lahren The Left's Disgusting ... I Wouldn't Even Treat Kaepernick Like That!!!

6/23/2018 6:20 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tomi Lahren says civility is dead -- on the Left -- because she'd never treat someone the way Sarah Huckabee Sanders got treated at a Virginia restaurant ... not even Colin Kaepernick.

We got the FOX News contributor at LAX Saturday, and she slams the recent trend of conservatives being booted from restaurants due to their political allegiances. Tomi backs up her take with a hypothetical scenario of being seated next to the unsigned NFL QB and how she'd handle it.

She says, "Even though everyone knows I vehemently disagree with everything he says he stands for" ... she claims she'd walk up to Kaep, shake his hand, and the 2 would have a good convo.

Tomi says it's all about respect, and the "weak" left has none of it ... a stance she echoed earlier on Twitter.

Don't forget, Lahren received some impolite treatment at a Minneapolis bar last month ... so you can't say she doesn't have some experience on the subject. Bryan Cranston says he does, too.

Todd Gurley I Bench More Than Aaron Donald

6/23/2018 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Todd Gurley was maybe the only human on the planet unimpressed by Aaron Donald's 495-pound bench press this week ... 'cause the running back says that's LIGHT WEIGHT for him.

Is he joking? Maybe (probably) ... but the clip's funny anyway. 

The Rams star was leaving Craig's in West Hollywood this week when he told us 495 is easy work ... because he's been pushing up OVER 500 pounds!!

Again ... he's gotta be kidding, right?

FYI ... Todd weighs 227, Aaron checks in at 285.

By the way, the strongest NFL running back we've ever heard about is Napoleon Kaufman -- a gym freak who reportedly put up 500 pounds on the bench back in the day.

So, is it impossible that Gurley put up 5 bills? Maybe, maybe not ... 

Saints Star Alvin Kamara Big-Ass Tattoos Covering Both Legs Now!!

6/23/2018 12:05 AM PDT
Breaking News

NFL defenders will at least have something nice to look at as Alvin Kamara runs by them next season ... 'cause the Saints star just finished up his second leg sleeve -- and it's sick.

AK had his whole right leg tatted a while ago, decked out with faces, a saber-tooth cat and tribal elements.

But the running back went under the needle again this week to get his left leg done ... and it's even more dope, with a warrior inside of a saber-tooth cat's mouth on his knee cap.

It doesn't seem to be an accident the new ink's face has a big-ass bull ring in its nose either ... 'cause Kamara's known around the NFL for the piercing.

Only question now is -- will all that ink on his legs slow him down in Year 2?!

Sean Payton sure hopes not.

Carolina Panthers Let 13-Year-Old Girl Practice with Team ... She Hits Hard!!

Breaking News

The Carolina Panthers just fulfilled a badass little girl's wish ... and they might have found the team's future linebacker in the process.

And, we're only kinda kidding.

13-year-old Kyleigh -- who's battling a severe endocrine disorder -- worked with Make-a-Wish Foundation to not only MEET the Panthers, but train with them as well ... and she crushed it. 

Superstar linebacker Thomas Davis hooked Kyleigh up with a helmet, jersey, gloves and team uni ... and let her rip into one of Carolina's OTA practices.

Turns out, she's pretty damn good.

"Kyleigh hit harder than Cap! Kyleigh hit harder than Cap!" Davis said, referring to DB Captain Munnerlyn.

Kyleigh's a legit athlete ... having won two wrestling championships ... and T.D. says the Panthers can learn as much from her as she can learn from them.

"She's a champion ... and when you have championship pedigree, I feel like it rubs off on everybody and she definitely rubbed off on a lot of us."

Ex-Cowboys RB Joseph Randle Punished For Car vs. People Attack

6/22/2018 11:08 AM PDT
Breaking News

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been sentenced to probation for striking people with his car at a party in 2016 ... and will finally be released from jail. 

The 26-year-old has been bouncing between jail and mental health facilities ever since the incident -- but, last week, the court declared him mentally competent to receive his punishment. 

As we previously reported, Randle was found guilty of aggravated battery, criminal threats and aggravated burglary after prosecutors say he ran over partygoers after getting kicked out of a party following a loss at a beer pong game

Randle appeared in a Kansas courtroom early Friday morning where he was sentenced to a 5-year probation and $3,000 in fines. 

The judge will also consider cutting 2 years off the probation sentence if Randle keeps his nose clean. 

It's a good result for him -- considering Randle was facing up to 10 years in prison. 

Randle -- who was arrested 6 times in 17 months -- still has serious legal problems on his plate. There are still 4 criminal cases pending and he's back in court on July 2.

A.J. Green Supports Julio Jones' Holdout ... Here's Why!

6/22/2018 9:26 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A.J. Green says he's not mad at Julio Jones for holding out in his contract dispute with the ATL Falcons -- telling TMZ Sports, "He gotta do what he gotta do, man."

The Bengals superstar WR was out shopping in Bev Hills -- and explained that when it comes to getting paid at the pro level, you gotta strike while ya can.

"The NFL stands for 'Not For Long,' so you gotta get it while it lasts."

Green knows what he's talking about -- he signed a 4-year $60 MILLION contract extension in 2015.

But, if things don't work out for Julio in ATL, Green says he's down to share some of the pass-catching workload in Cinci.

Could you imagine Green and Julio on the same offense?! Good luck with that, Joe Haden.

Ex-Texans Cheerleader I Was Body Shamed, Called 'Skinny Fat'

6/22/2018 8:20 AM PDT

A former Houston Texans cheerleader has lawyered up -- with Gloria Allred -- to sue the team after claiming she was treated like a bad sorority pledge ... all because she was considered "skinny fat."

The woman -- Angelina Rosa -- says the Houston Texans cheerleading staffers cornered her before a 2017 game and forcibly duct taped parts of her body to make her body appear tighter. 

The woman claims the entire experience was "painful" and humiliating, and now she's out for legal revenge. 

"I stand here today to make sure no other girl or woman has to endure the same humiliation."

Rosa claims she was so emotionally scarred, she developed an eating disorder. 

She's being added to the lawsuit that Allred has already filed on behalf of 5 other Houston Texans who have gripes with the team. 

Tom Brady Belts Out Songs With Gisele ... At U2 Concert!!

6/22/2018 7:32 AM PDT
Breaking News

Tom Brady is TRASH when it comes to singing U2 songs -- and the video proof is pretty great!

TB12 and his wife, Gisele, hit up the U2 concert at TD Garden in Boston on Thursday -- apparently they're big fans -- and shouted along with the songs at the top of their lungs.

It's so bad, it's good.

You can hear Brady screech along with hits like "Vertigo" and "Pride (In The Name of Love)" -- and, when it comes to his singing voice, he's more Trevor Siemian than Tom Brady.

Gisele didn't seem to mind -- you can see her rocking out in the background, having a blast.

Tom and Gisele were in a private box away from the normies -- but, question, does Tom Brady have to pay for his tickets when goes to a concert in Boston?

NFL's Brandon Browner Jailed for Domestic Battery

6/22/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-Seattle Seahawks star Brandon Browner was arrested and convicted in a domestic battery case stemming from a May incident ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

According to court docs, Browner was arrested in L.A. County on May 6, 2018 for battery and child endangerment. Details surrounding the incident are unclear. 

But records show Browner pled no contest to the charges and was sentenced to probation.

Here's where things go from bad to worse ... sometime after the conviction, the court found Browner had violated his probation from a previous case -- and ordered him to serve 60 days in jail. 

He was released after just 2 days due to overcrowding. 

A rep for the L.A. Sheriff's Dept. tells us, "Anyone sentenced to 180 days or less for a non serious offense is immediately released due to continuing overcrowding." 

It's just the latest in a string of legal issues for the former Pro Bowl cornerback who's been arrested several times ever since his career ended back in 2015. 

We reached out to Browner for comment, but haven't heard back. 

Jameis Winston To Be Suspended For Allegedly Sexually Assaulting Uber Driver

6/21/2018 3:12 PM PDT
Breaking News

Tampa Bay Bucs QB Jameis Winston is expected to be suspended for 3 games by the NFL over an incident in which he allegedly grabbed a female Uber driver's crotch, according to ESPN. 

As we previously reported, Winston has DENIED sexually assaulting the woman during a boozy ride in Scottsdale, Arizona in March 2016. 

But the alleged victim is adamant Winston "reached over and put his fingers on my crotch. It wasn't accidental."

The NFL investigated the allegation and, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter -- the league will notify Winston on Friday that he will be hit with the 3-game suspension for a violation of the league's personal conduct policy. 

ESPN says there's a chance the league could change the plan and alter the length of the suspension before it is officially handed out on Friday ... but it seems unlikely. 

If carried through, Winston would only lose about $124k in base salary due to the way his contract is structured. 

'Revenge of the Nerds' Star Allegedly Attacked Wife Before Death

6/21/2018 3:26 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The estate of Bernie Casey -- a former NFL-star-turned actor -- is being sued by a woman claiming to be his widow, who alleges the 78-year-old violently tackled her to the ground just 1 week before his death. 

The woman behind the suit is Cheryl Castillo -- who claims she and Bernie lived together in L.A. as husband and wife ... but things went south during an altercation on Sept. 10. 

According to her lawsuit, Castillo claims she was having an argument with Casey over their cars, when he suddenly grabbed her by the arm and tackled her to the ground "as though [she] was a football player."

Before Casey starred in movies like "Revenge of the Nerds" and "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" -- he was a Pro Bowl wide receiver for the L.A. Rams back in the '60s. 

Castillo claims she suffered injuries from the alleged attack and wants Casey's estate to fork over some big money to make things right.

Casey died on Sept. 19 after suffering a stroke. Castillo believes his health conditions affected his mental ability in the last years of his life.
