Exclusive Details

Colin Kaepernick is staying NFL ready -- training every single day at 5 AM in case he gets the call from a team in the market for a talented, capable, veteran QB. 

These pics were shot early Tuesday morning as Kap put in work with his trainer, Josh Hidalgo -- Head of Sports Performance at the Sports Center NYC. 

Hidalgo says a typical day for Kap goes like this -- "5 AM on the dot we are on the field, warming up, sprint work, conditioning, throwing, lifting and stretching."

"Then immediately after Kap’s training is done he is off to meetings ... then we are back at it 5 AM on the dot."

On this particular day, Kaepernick attended the 3rd Annual Backpack Drive at We Are Dream, an organization that helps inner-city kids in East Harlem, the South Bronx and Newark.

Kap is suing the NFL for collusion -- claiming he's been blackballed from the league over his national anthem kneeling demonstration

His friend, Eric Reid, who also took a knee with him, has been hired by the Carolina Panthers -- and ya gotta think it's a good sign for Kap.

Aaron Rodgers dropping L-bombs!! 

The Green Bay Packers QB opened up on his relationship with Danica Patrick -- telling Michele Tafoya he already feels comfortable saying he loves her. 

"We're just two people who enjoy being around each other and love each other," Rodgers said in the interview for Artful Living

"We're really into each other ... We're really attracted to each other."

Aaron and Danica went public with their relationship back in January -- and things have gotten pretty serious ever since. 

"We really enjoy traveling. She went on the trip to India and Africa [back in the spring], and we had a blast. And we’ve taken some trips domestically that have been fun."

He added, "She’s a good travel partner because she’s so laid-back and low-maintenance. And she’s a hell of a cook, so we love just staying in, too. She eats really healthy. She’s inspired me in that way."

The only real issue in their relationship -- Danica's family cheers for the Chicago Bears. 

Aaron joked to Tafoya, "They can’t come to the games if they’re doing that." 

Antonio Brown I Didn't Throw That Furniture ... But I Know Who Did!

10/18/2018 7:45 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Antonio Brown says he didn't freak out and throw furniture off his 14th story balcony back in April -- and now he's pointing the finger at another person who was with him that day. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the Pittsburgh Steelers WR is being sued by a man who claims it was Brown who threw vases, an ottoman and other pieces out of his Miami apartment, nearly killing his 22-month-old son. 

Cops were called to the scene -- and according to the police report, Brown was "very agitated" and yelling when they arrived. 

But, in new court docs, Brown says he was NOT the perpetrator -- explaining, "The acts were committed by another individual who was also present at the time of the incident."

So, who could it have been? The clue may be in the police report ... 

When cops arrived, they noted Brown's trainer "and another gentleman" were trying to calm him down. 

Which means Brown wants us to believe the angry guy erupting in his apartment didn't throw the furniture -- it was one of the two men trying to diffuse the situation. 

Uh huh ... 

Brown claims the lawsuit is nothing more than "blatant shakedown" by a "struggling real estate developer to exploit his minor child."

Brown is asking the judge to throw out the case. 

Lawrence Taylor Agrees With Bill Belichick ... Khalil Mack Ain't On My Level!

10/17/2018 3:24 PM PDT
Breaking News

Lawrence Taylor says Bill Belichick is absolutely correct ... Khalil Mack ain't NOWHERE near his level -- and neither is anybody else!!!

Of course, the reason we're even talking about this is 'cause a reporter had the onions to ask The Hoody -- who coached L.T. in NY -- if Mack was on the same level as the Giants legend.

"We're talking about Lawrence Taylor now," Bill said Wednesday morning, stone-faced and kinda pissed.

"I'm not putting anybody in Lawrence Taylor's class. So, put everybody down below that."

L.T. didn't take long to agree ...

"What he said!! The mold was made never to be duplicated!!!"

FYI ... L.T. was the NFL's 1986 MVP (the last defensive player to win the award), a 10-time Pro Bowler, an 8-time First-Team All-Pro member AND a 2-time Super Bowl winner.

As for Mack, he does have a Defensive Player of the Year award under his belt and 3 Pro Bowls in his 4-plus seasons ... but yeah, he ain't no L.T.

Then again, who the hell is?!?!?

Maurice Clarett Nick Bosa Could Make $100 Mil in NFL ... Leaving OSU Is Smart

10/17/2018 10:56 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Bosa could make $100 MILLION in the NFL -- and it's simply not worth it to stay in college and contend for a title ... so says ex-OSU superstar running back Maurice Clarett

Clarett knows a little something about leaving college for the pros -- he sued the NFL back in 2003 after his sensational freshman season to try and become eligible for the 2004 NFL Draft. 

Clarett ultimately lost his suit and didn't really pan out in the NFL -- but still feels very strongly that top players like Bosa should focus on cashing in at the next level. 

Bosa is the projected #1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft -- and after suffering a core injury earlier this season, the defensive end announced he won't return to OSU. Instead, he's focusing on prepping himself for the NFL. 

"I believe he's doing the right thing," Clarett told the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show.

"This guy could probably make $100 million over his career. I wouldn't go out there and risk it for a National Championship. It's just not worth it. It's basic common sense."

He added, "I wouldn't go out there and risk my life and jeopardize my future to make some fans happy, I just wouldn't do it."

Clarett is now killing it in the podcast game -- topping the iTunes charts with his show, "Business & Biceps."

Make sure to catch the entire interview with Clarett on "TMZ Sports" -- weeknights on FS1.

Exclusive Details

The women who claim they were violently attacked during a home invasion allegedly orchestrated by LeSean McCoy are suing the Buffalo Bills star for more than $13 million, TMZ Sports has learned. 

McCoy's ex-girlfriend, Delicia Cordon, is demanding at least $10 million and her friend, Elizabeth Donald, is asking for at least $3.5 million for damages suffered in the July 10 incident. 

Donald claims she was pistol whipped by the masked man who broke into the Georgia home where they were staying and has suffered serious mental anguish and emotional distress as a result. 

Of course, Cordon has been very public about her injuries -- showing photos of her bruised face also inflicted by the home invader (photo below).  

Both Cordon and Donald believe McCoy masterminded the attack -- and therefore should be liable for any damages they suffered. 

For his part, McCoy has adamantly denied any involvement and he has not been named a suspect in the criminal case.

We're told the guys arrived around midnight -- and Conor was walking around the place with a bottle of Proper 12 whiskey in his hand, continuing the endless publicity push for his new booze company. 

There was definitely reason to celebrate -- the Cowboys beat up on the Jacksonville Jaguars all game long, racking up a 40-7 victory. Zeke rushed for 106 yards and a TD.

Jennings -- a "Dancing with the Stars" champion -- just learned about the Tyreek Hill incident when we saw him out in L.A. on Monday night ... and he was shocked it went down. 

The former NY Giants running back says fans need to show "some type of level of respect" to players -- and not treat them like animals. 

So, how does Rashad feel about the 21-year-old suspect being banned for life from Gillette Stadium? 

Rashad's all about it -- telling us, "You shoulda stricken down on the protection of a player and not allow degrading them and dehumanizing them."

What about letting players like Tyreek have carte blanch to beat the hell out of a fan who attacks them first

Rashad laughed -- but says that's a very dangerous game ... 'cause someone would get hurt BAD. 

BTW ... if you're wondering what Jennings is up to in his post-football days -- he's still dancing his face off ... even doing a shirtless Paso with DeMarcus Ware on Monday night!!

Paul Allen Microsoft Co-Founder Dead at 65

10/15/2018 3:13 PM PDT
Breaking News

Paul Allen, the billionaire who co-founded Microsoft with Bill Gates in 1975 is dead.

Allen succumbed to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He died Monday afternoon in his hometown of Seattle.

Allen, whose wealth was estimated north of $20 billion, announced 2 weeks ago his cancer had returned after 9 years in remission.

Allen and Gates, both college dropouts, hatched the idea for Microsoft in Albuquerque. They designed software for the yet-to-explode personal computer revolution.

The 2 men met when they were teenage students at Lakeside School outside Seattle. They became fast friends and bonded over their love of computers. The two would go "dumpster diving" for computer program code. Allen, who dropped out of Washington State, convinced Gates to bail from Harvard.

Allen is the one who came up with the name -- Micro-Soft. 

The company moved to Bellevue, Washington in 1979. He was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 1983 and resigned shortly thereafter, but still was an active member of the board until 2000.

Allen bought the Seattle Seahawks back in 1996, 8 years after buying the Portland Trail Blazers. He also bought the Seattle Sounders, part of Major League Soccer, with business partners including Drew Carey.

Allen was a huge music fan, especially of Jimi Hendrix, and founded The Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle. 

Paul donated more than $2 billion to various charities.

Allen was never married and had no children.

Paul's family says, "For all the demands on his schedule, there was always time for family and friends.  At this time of loss and grief for us -- and so many others -- we are profoundly grateful for the care and concern he demonstrated everyday."

Paul was 65. RIP.

EXCLUSIVE

1:14 PM PT -- The Foxborough Police Dept. has identified the suspect as a 21-year-old man from Massachusetts. 

Cops say the man will be charged with 2 crimes -- disorderly conduct and "throw object at sporting event."

A court date will be set. 

Cops say they were able to ID the suspect using surveillance video from the stadium. 

12:39 PM PT -- Tyreek Hill wants the fan who threw beer at him to be arrested and charged, according to Hill's agent, Drew Rosenhaus ... who spoke to Adam Schefter.

“Players have to be protected. We want that fan to be prosecuted.”

10:44 AM PT -- The Patriots say the fan has been identified and has now been BANNED FOR LIFE from attending Patriots games at Gillette Stadium. 

The Patriots add, "The matter has been turned over to local law enforcement and the fan will be sent a letter of disinvite to all future events at Gillette Stadium.”

The Foxborough Police Dept. is investigating the embarrassing moment at Gillette Stadium on Sunday when a Patriots fan doused a Kansas City Chiefs player with beer after a TD ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Cameras were rolling as Tyreek Hill scored a 75-yard touchdown with 3:03 left in the 4th quarter and then came face-to-face with a pack of Pats fans who were flipping him off and shouting insults. 

One of the people in the group -- who appears to be wearing a Pats jersey -- threw his Bud Lite at Hill's face. Terrible moment, but props to Hill for not fighting back (you know he wanted to). 

Now, the Foxborough PD tells us ... they're looking into the incident and would like to speak with the fan to find out what happened. 

Hopefully, they track this scumbag down and ban him from the stadium for life -- because players shouldn't have to deal with this crap. 

In fact, Reggie Bush has already spoken out about it on Twitter, saying, "Now if he smacked the piss out of one of you clowns you would be all over social media crying ready to sue him!"

"Fans need to chill before somebody get hurt! You don’t have to like the opposing team but you need to show respect or don’t go!"

True. 

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