Aldon Smith Checks Into Rehab

7/29/2016 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0729-aldon-smith-GETTY-01Aldon Smith has entered a treatment center ... multiple sources connected to the NFL star confirm to TMZ Sports.

Unclear exactly what Smith is seeking treatment for -- but the move comes days after the Oakland Raiders star denied being in a video that appeared to show him with a blunt. 

The video surfaced over the weekend -- and while you NEVER see the man's face in the footage -- you can hear a voice that sounds like Smith ... talking about a "fire up session."

At one point in the video, you hear the man's voice say, "They don't know it's me. It's not like I put 'Aldon Smith.'"

Smith has been to rehab before -- completing a stint in 2013 following two DUI arrests.

7/29/2016 9:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0729-brandon-marshall-antonio-brown-TMZ-01The Brandon Marshall vs. Antonio Brown car bet is ONE STEP CLOSER TO HAPPENING ... because the two stars spoke on Thursday to hash out the terms ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

After Marshall made the initial bet, Brown told the NY Jets WR to "call me" if he was serious about wagering their expensive cars on who would have more receiving yards in 2016. Marshall put his Porsche against AB's Rolls-Royce.

Turns out, Marshall picked up the phone -- because we just spoke to Brandon who gave us the following statement:

"We spoke yesterday to work out the details of this deal. We'll let you guys know what happens."

He added, "There are so many things that make playing in the NFL fun. One of which is the game within the game. AB has taken the WR position to another level. There are a few guys who won't let him sit on top of the hill by himself. I am one of those guys."

0728-brown-marshall-getty-01Antonio Brown says he's ready, willing and able to accept Brandon Marshall's Porsche vs. Rolls-Royce bet ... but he's not sure the NY Jets star is being serious. 

Marshall went on Instagram and challenged the Steelers superstar to make a car bet over who will have more receiving yards in 2016 -- Brandon's Porsche versus Antonio's Rolls. 

So, we reached out to Brown ... and here's what he told us:

"He don't really wanna do that. He just wants some PR. He too old to be doing that."

Brown also noted, "The RR is about $100k up [from the value of the Porsche]."

"If he really serious, CALL ME ... I'll gladly accept. Don't Internet it."

Aaron Rodgers I Don't Watch 'Bachelorette' 'Inappropriate' to Air Family Drama

7/27/2016 6:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0727-aaron-jordan-rodgers-getty-02Aaron Rodgers says he has NOT watched his little bro, Jordan, compete on "The Bachelorette" -- but is clearly upset about the episode that put a spotlight on his family rift.

The Packers QB spoke with WISN in Wisconsin -- and was asked specifically if he was affected by last week's episode, when Jordan and his family explained how Aaron has cut them off from his life. 

"I haven't seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn't really affected me a whole lot," Rodgers said. 

When asked to explain why he no longer speaks to his brother or his parents, Aaron said: 

"As far as those kinds of things go, I've always found that it's a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I'm just -- I'm not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition."

Translation -- Aaron ain't too happy that his family aired their dirty laundry on prime time television ... and it seems to have only made the rift worse.

Ex-NFL QB Marcus Vick Insane Police Video Running from Cops, Captured at Gunpoint

7/26/2016 1:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained insane footage of ex-NFL quarterback Marcus Vick -- Michael Vick's brother -- literally running from cops during an incident back in April ... before being captured at gunpoint. 

It all started at a gym in Newport News, Virginia -- when cops were questioning the 32-year-old about a warrant out for his arrest stemming from a civil case. 

Vick spoke with cops for nearly 10 minutes before suddenly deciding to make a run for it -- shoving 2 cops out of the way, breaking tackles -- and SPRINTING down the street. 

Cops gave chase ... but Vick is WAYYYYYYY FASTER (he ran a 4.42 in the 40 at the 2006 NFL Combine). 

It seemed like he was going to get away -- but the cops stayed with him, and Vick eventually tired out ... sat down on the ground and gave himself up.

But when the trailing officer caught up to Vick -- he drew his weapon, pointed it at the seated Vick and ordered him to show his hands and get on his stomach. 

The whole thing is pretty intense ... but Vick is eventually taken into custody without further incident. 

He was later convicted of resisting arrest and sentenced to a year in jail with 11 months suspended. He also got 12 months probation.

By the way, at the end the video you can hear one of the cops say ... "If he ran I knew we weren't gonna catch him."

Ezekiel Elliott All Smiles Again After Domestic Violence Allegations

Breaking News

0726-ezekiel-elliott-instagram-01-Ezekiel Elliott doesn't look like he's too worried about last week's domestic violence allegations -- posting a photo to social media with a big ol' smile on his face. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Elliott's ex-GF claimed the Dallas Cowboys star struck her during a parking lot altercation early Friday morning -- and later claimed he had a history of violence against her. 

But cops spoke with 4 witnesses who say they never saw Elliott lay a finger on the woman -- and in the end, officers did NOT arrest Elliott because they didn't feel there was enough evidence to prove he committed a crime.

The woman was referred to the prosecutor's office -- but clearly, Elliott ain't sweatin' it.

NFL's Tre Mason Cops Called, Bizarre Behavior ... 5th Time In 4 Months

7/26/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

07-24-tre-mason-GETTY-01More troubling news about L.A. Rams RB Tre Mason -- who's been at the center of 5 different incidents involving cops in the past 4 months, TMZ Sports has learned ... and his family is extremely concerned.

The latest incident occurred on Saturday -- multiple units responded to Mason's family home in Florida in the middle of the afternoon. We know Mason was NOT arrested -- but there seems to be a bigger problem. 

Mason's family is concerned about his mental health -- citing a string of bizarre behavior and angry outbursts ... and they're worried for his personal safety. 

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Dept. has been called to the home 5 times since March 28th -- and at least once, Mason agreed to check into a facility to resolve the situation. 

From the info we've gathered, Mason has NEVER been accused of hurting anyone. However, on one occasion, a family member told cops she didn't want Tre to leave the house because he hadn't slept in days and she was worried "he will get hurt." 

Before the issues at his home, Mason was arrested in Hollywood, FL on March 5th after he was pulled over for speeding -- and was tased when he refused to get out of the car. 

It's clear, Tre's family is concerned and wants to help him. 

We reached out to Mason's agent for comment -- so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Someone call Chippendales ... 'cause the greatest WR of all time stripped out of his shirt to give a crotch-thrusting lap dance at a party over the weekend ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.

Jerry Rice was at an event for the American Century Celebrity golf tourney in Lake Tahoe over the weekend -- when 50 Cent's "In Da Club" started playing ... and Mr. Rice ditched his top. 

From there, he spotted his assistant in the crowd ... and decided to dance up on her -- eventually droppin' his butt down in her lap like he was straight outta "Magic Mike."

Seems to be an annual thing for Jerry ... who busted a similar move with a G-string clad dancer at a Lake Tahoe club last year. 

Seriously, Jerry ... call Chippendales already.
