Breaking News

New Orleans Saints long snapper and star magician Jon Dorenbos is "resting comfortably" after open-heart surgery on Tuesday -- this according to Dorenbos' former NFL coach.

Dorenbos -- who crushed it on "America's Got Talent" -- was diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm during his physical for the Saints last week ... which prompted the emergency surgery.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson gave an update on his ex-player's condition, saying, "Everything went well yesterday with surgery and he's resting comfortably."

"Just wish him and his family well, our prayers are with him and hope for a speedy recovery."

The NFL vet shared a video of his friends and family before going under the knife, saying, "Thank you to my beautiful amazing wife, my family, my friends and videos like this. This brought out some tears. I feel the love and support."

Get well soon, Jon!

Breaking News

A trade to the New Orleans Saints may have saved Jon Dorenbos' life -- because the longsnapper just learned he has a very serious heart condition that was discovered during a team physical. 

Dorenbos -- who dominated as a magician on "America's Got Talent" -- was traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Saints back in August and had to undergo a medical exam as part of the deal. 

Saints coach Sean Payton just told the media ... doctors discovered the 2-time Pro Bowl player had an aortic aneurysm that will require immediate heart surgery. 

Payton says, "It's a pretty serious condition."

Dorenbos is 37 years old -- and the news could signal the end of his NFL career -- but who cares as long as he gets healthy.

Charlie Day Sorry, Philly ... I'M A PATS FAN!

EXCLUSIVE

This is blasphemy ...

"It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" star Charlie Day is living a LIE ... telling TMZ Sports he has no real love for the Philadelphia Eagles ... and actually roots for the New England Patriots.

If you don't watch 'Sunny' (you're missing out, show's hilarious) Day plays Charlie Kelly -- a crazed Eagles fan whose love for the team often gets him into hijinks.

When we got the real-life actor out in L.A. he revealed to us that it's all a goof ... and not only does he not root for the Eagles ... he actually sides with the evilest of all football empires.

Is nothing real anymore?

Eagles' Nigel Bradham Sued Over Alleged Beach Beatdown ... You Obliterated My Face!

11/28/2016 8:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

It was only a matter of time ... but now the hotel worker who claims he was brutally attacked by Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham is suing the NFL star. 

As we previously reported, Bradham was arrested in July after allegedly beating the living crap out of a staffer at the Hilton Bentley in South Beach, Miami. 

In his lawsuit, the staffer -- a 50-year-old Haitian man -- says he was setting up beach umbrellas for Bradham and his team when the NFL star got upset at what he perceived as "slow service."

The accuser claims Bradham socked him in the face for no reason and then "violently tackled [him] to the ground" where he continued to bash in the guy's face. 

The accuser says the beating finally stopped when bystanders began shouting they were calling the police ... and Bradham and his crew fled the scene. 

The accuser says he suffered major injuries -- including a concussion, cuts, back pain, a broken eye socket and a broken nose. He's already undergone 2 surgeries to fix the damage. 

Bradham was later charged with felony battery and faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted. He has pled not guilty in the criminal case.  

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

Jon Dorenbos is having one helluva year -- after finishing 3rd on "America's Got Talent," the magician just signed a brand new 3 year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Seems like 3 is his magic number! 

Of course, Dorenbos has been the Eagles' long-snapper since 2006  -- but after his massive success on 'AGT' coupled with the fact he's 36, some people thought he'd pursue the magic thing full time. 

But that's not the case ... at least not yet ... with Ian Rapoport reporting that he just inked a new deal that will keep him with Philly until 2019! 

Obviously, the contract won't stop him from expanding his magic career -- he just appeared on "Ellen" a few days ago and CRUSHED IT! 

Congrats!

According to the Delaware River Port Authority criminal complaint, the 25-year-old wide receiver was stopped on the Walt Whitman Bridge in Jersey around 11 AM after cops saw him going 25 mph over the speed limit.

Eagles Linebacker Pleads Not Guilty ... In Airport Gun Case

EXCLUSIVE

Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham has pled not guilty to a concealed weapons charge -- after allegedly taking a loaded gun through the airport earlier this month. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Bradham was popped at Miami International Airport on Oct. 2nd after officials say he put a loaded firearm through the TSA screening machine. 

We're told Bradham had a concealed weapons permit -- but the bigger issue is that he was out on bond from an unrelated assault case where one of the terms was he wasn't allowed to carry a gun. 

The concealed weapons charge is a 2nd degree misdemeanor and if he's convicted, he could face up to 6 months in jail. 

Bradham is a major part of the Eagles defense -- and led the team in tackles in Sunday night's loss to the Cowboys.
