EXCLUSIVE

Saquon Barkley has a problem that only Tiger Woods can fix -- he sucks at golf. 

Well, maybe "sucks" is a strong word ... but the NY Giants stud rookie running back knows he needs a lot of help on the links and thinks Tiger is just the man for the job. 

You've probably seen the pics of Barkley on the course ... dude looks like a monster with a club -- and he's revealing his new nickname, "Thigh-ger Woods."

"I need some lessons," Barkley joked to TMZ Sports ... "I need more than some lessons!" 

There's more ... Barkley -- who just became a first-time dad -- also talked about being a parent. 

But between changing diapers and training with the Giants ... good luck finding time to golf!!!

Rapper Jim Jones NY Giants Signed Lineman From My Arena Team!!

5/19/2018 12:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The NY Giants just plucked an offensive lineman from an American Arena League team owned by rap star Jim Jones ... and Capo could not be more proud to let him go. 

The "We Fly High" rapper is a joint owner of the AAL's Richmond Roughriders -- which have already racked up a 7-1 record this season with a stacked roster, including Greg Hardy

But the NY Giants had their eye on the other side of the ball ... because they just signed 26-year-old offensive lineman Malcolm Bunche -- a 6'6", 320-pounder from UCLA. 

"This is a great feeling," Jones says ... "I'm smiling, man. I'm smiling! Smiling! Smiling!" 

Jones says everyone in the Roughriders organization is pumped for Bunche -- plus, it gives hope for other players trying to get to the NFL. 

In fact, Jones says he hopes the AAL can serve as a real feeder league to the pros -- putting a spotlight on players who deserve a shot at the next level. 

"This shows that it's very much possible. More than possible."

Check this out ... #1, #2 and #3 all hanging together at LAX and TMZ Sports has the video!!

NY Giants rookie Saquon Barkley -- along with Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold -- all touched down at LAX for the NFLPA Rookie Premiere event ... and they all seemed pretty stoked to reunite! 

Barkley and Mayfield hugged it out ... and Saquon actually carpooled with Darnold (Jets and Giants mingling?!). 

Of course, Saquon couldn't have been nicer -- complimenting his new NY rival ... even saying he's rooting for him!

We also asked Barkley about Eric Dickerson's recent comments -- that he's hoping Barkley will NOT break his rookie rushing record, and Saquon even handled that with 100% class. 

"I don't care for that," Barkley said about breaking the record ... "I wanna win championships."

Victor Cruz to NY Giants: Take Me Back!

5/8/2018 4:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Victor Cruz says he still wants to play in the NFL -- and he's got a team in mind ... the New York Giants! 

The 31-year-old wide receiver hasn't taken a regular season snap since 2016 -- but at the BTIG Charity Day event in NYC, he made it very clear he doesn't want to retire yet.

Of course, Cruz's exit from the Giants wasn't exactly sunshine and rainbows -- he accused the team of icing him out of the offense in 2016 to keep his stats down so it would be easier to cut him.

"And if I played well, they were due to -- they owed me a ton of money that next year so it was like ... let's get Cruz off the books," he said last year on the Breakfast Club. 

Will the Giants forgive and forget, and offer a new deal? They just cut Brandon Marshall, so it seems like there's room for one more ... 

OBJ Orders 3 Pizzas ... Ends Up With 30!!

5/5/2018 12:15 AM PDT
Breaking News

What's better than having 3 delicious pizzas delivered to your doorstep?? HOW ABOUT GETTING 30 PIZZAS?!

That's exactly what happened during Odell Beckham's first ever Postmates experience on Friday ... when the New York Giants superstar was hungry for some California Pizza Kitchen.

OBJ says he only ordered 3 different pies, but the order must've gotten mixed up along the way, 'cause the dude rolled up to his L.A. home with a TON of pizza.

The clip is hilarious ... Odell thankfully narrates the whole thing ... expressing his uncertainty about the food delivery's reliability to begin with, being a first-timer and all.

BTW -- Odell was only charged for the 3 pizzas he ordered, so it's safe to say he'll be a returning customer.

Odell Beckham Pulls 5,600-Pound Denali ... Up a Hill

4/23/2018 9:54 AM PDT

Here's Odell Beckham Jr. proving he's stronger than you ... pulling a 5,600-pound SUV up an incline with a rope! 

The New York Giants wide out was doing some strength training drills with some pals in New Orleans -- which apparently included pulling a 2011 GMC Yukon Denali. The vehicle generally weighs between 5,600 and 5,800 pounds. 

We're guessing (hoping) there was also an adult in the driver's seat to hit the brakes when the car got close to Odell ... so tack on another 200 pounds. 

Odell's been working out like a maniac recently -- even hitting the gym with Dez Bryant in L.A. 

Giants fans ... excited yet?

Odell Beckham Jr. will NEVER leave the NY Giants -- so says a world-famous porn star ... who's laying her booty on the line for OBJ!

Richelle Ryan -- star of XXX hits like "Big Wet Butts" and "Plump Rumps" -- is a HUGE Giants fan ... so when we got her leaving Vivid's HQ in L.A., we asked her what to make of the G-Men reportedly trying to deal Odell. 

Richelle was triggered -- and told us there ain't a chance she'd let that happen.

"He's not leaving the Giants ... I'll make sure of that," Ryan told TMZ Sports. "I will work my magic."

Richelle also gave us the low-down on her viral "gangbang" pic with UNLV's baseball team ... including whether or not any of the young bucks joined her in the Mile High Club!!

Saquon Barkley Rocks NY Giants Gear ... To Barber Shop

4/12/2018 3:57 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Saquon Barkley was rockin' a NY Giants sweatshirt to a Pennsylvania barber shop and TMZ Sports has the photos.

Of course, there's a lot of buzz that the former Penn State running back is being targeted by the Giants -- who have the #2 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

Is it a good sign for NY Giants fans? Sure ... but don't go celebrating just yet.

Sources close to Barkley tell us the sweatshirt was a gift given to him from the Giants when he met with the team -- and it just happened to be laying around when he needed a shirt to go get a haircut.

FYI -- we're told players are often given team swag during pre-draft visits.

In other words ... Barkley's position is that he'd still be happy to be drafted by any team.

But S.B. is widely considered the best RB in the draft -- and ya gotta think Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. are gonna be stoked when they see these pics.

Rapper To Odell Beckham Jr. You Made Me Viral ... NOW DO MY VIDEO!!!

4/8/2018 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Odell Beckham Jr. just got the offer of a lifetime. No, not a new contract from the NY Giants -- this is an offer for OBJ to do what he TRULY wants in life ... dance in a rap video.

TMZ Sports spoke with super hot new NY rapper Flipp Dinero -- the guy who Odell blew up last week when video of Beckham dancing to Dinero's song "Leave Me Alone" went viral.

Flipp told us he's still super turnt that Odell chose his song to get busy to, and when we asked if he wants Odell to appear in the video, he made it clear ... HE DOES.

"Hell yeah, I just want Odell to be there. Just because he showed love off GP, I'm showing love off GP, too."

BTW Odell danced to the song (we think) to send a message -- he just wants people to let him live his life ... but Flipp says the track isn't about that, it's about what most songs are about.

A woman.

Michael Rapaport says the New York Giants have a VERY simple blueprint to not suck next season ... if they can keep their heads outta their asses.

Part 1: "DO NOT get rid of Odell Beckham. DO NOT make the mistake."

Part 2: "Draft Saquon Barkley ... he's a star."

OBJ's had a really tough offseason, but Rapaport explains why the G-Men gotta give him a pass for the off-field stuff ... and he makes a solid argument.

As for Saquon ... Mike says he's seen the kid in person and, like Odell, he's a generational talent! 

Rapaport also gives props to LaVar Ball for taking on the almighty NCAA with his new league ... and it's pretty obvious he puts the Ballfather over the NYG brass. 

"I think it's a great idea. He's a very smart, tenacious businessman."

Wale says OBJ deserves "unprecedented" numbers in his new deal ... and explains that his dominance is rare in today's NFL.

Victor Cruz says the NY Giants' draft decision is "easy as pie" ... telling TMZ Sports there's only one name they should call with the 2nd pick -- Saquon Barkley!! 

We spoke with the ex-G-Men star about which NFL prospect he thinks will be the best fit in the Big Apple ... and he says despite the QB-heavy draft class, NY's gotta go with the Penn State superstar.

Odell Beckham Jr. Sued For $15 Mil Over Alleged Brutal Assault

3/23/2018 2:45 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

3:22 PM PT -- Beckham Jr. vehemently denies the allegations, and issued the following statement through his attorney, Daniel Davillier:

"Ishmael Temple has expressly acknowledged in his own lawsuit that Odell Beckham, Jr. never once touched him; and yet, Mr. Beckham is being sued for an alleged altercation that definitively did not involve him at all." 

In the statement, Beckham's legal team also claims Mr. Temple arrived at the party drunk, belligerent and made threats to several attendees ... at which point he was repeatedly asked to leave. They claim he was repeatedly asked to leave, and got into a fight -- but NOT with Odell -- and was then escorted off the premises.

They point out, Temple himself says Odell wasn't involved in the physical altercation -- but they claim he demanded money from Odell. 

Davillier added, “This guy claims somebody assaulted him to near death, but there’s no police report, no hospital record, no evidence of an actual injury, and he asserts that Odell is responsible. This is clearly a frivolous lawsuit. We’ll see him in court.”

Odell Beckham Jr. is being sued by a guy who claims all he did was go to Beckham's house and he got the crap beaten out of him.

Ishmael Temple claims in a new lawsuit he's been friends with Beckham. Temple claims he was invited to Beckham's home in January. He says he was shaking hands with people inside the home and went for the hand of Beckham's hired muscle, Charles Puryear, when the bodyguard pulled out a gun and pointed it toward him, saying, "I bet you've never gotten shot before."

Temple says he then pulled Beckham aside to tell him what happened and says Beckham just laughed it off and told him to relax. He says 20 minutes later, when he was ready to leave, another guy punched him in the back of the head and Puryear joined in, stomping Temple.

Temple says he blacked out and woke up to kicks to his face and Beckham did not order security to stop.

He says the beating stemmed from an incident the week before, when he says Beckham's security verbally assaulted him when he sought to retrieve his phone from Beckham's house. He thinks security resents him because, "as a Hollywood social event organizer, [he] knew many of the female ladies present at Beckham's residence."

Temple says he was beaten to a pulp ... his 2 front teeth got chipped and his lip was busted. He says his earring got ripped out of his ear and his knee got messed up.

Temple says he's spent $18k just to fix his teeth.

And there's more ... Temple, an event organizer, says he's been blacklisted as a result of the fight.

He's suing for $15 million.
