8/8/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0804-richard-sherman-wingstop-getty-3Seahawks superstar Richard Sherman is following in Peyton Manning's footsteps ... by opening his very own fast food joint -- a Wingstop -- in Seattle ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The All-Pro CB was inspired to open the biz after one of his former teammates, Sidney Rice, had a lot of success -- aka made a lot of money -- owning several of the wing joints.

A rep for Wingstop tells us Sherman grew up a fan of their delicious chicken wings ... so partnering up was a no-brainer.

Sherman's a newbie to the restaurant biz ... so we're told he's been spending a lot of time making sure things at his first spot run smoothly. However, word is he's scoping out other locales in the hopes of opening more wing franchises.

6/28/2016 1:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Ex-TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin has been charged with assault for allegedly striking a police officer after he was thrown out of a bar days before the Alamo Bowl ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Boykin -- who has since signed with the Seattle Seahawks -- was captured on video being physically removed from Pat O'Briens bar in San Antonio on Dec. 31st ... while throwing punches at staff on the way out. 

Once he was in the street, Boykin can be seen rushing toward bike cops who rolled up to the scene. Officials say he struck one of the officers while they tried to take him into custody.

Boykin was initially booked for assaulting a public servant (a 3rd degree felony), public intoxication and resisting arrest.

Seattle Seahawks RB I'd Stop Listening to Future ... If Russell Wilson Asked

5/19/2016 12:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Now, THIS is dedication!!! 

Seattle Seahawks rookie running back Alex Collins says he's so committed to the team, he'd even give up listening to Future's music ... if that's what his QB wanted. 

It's a big deal ... 'cause Future's dope. Everyone knows that. 

But everyone also knows Russell Wilson's got some issues with the guy (since he's engaged to Future's baby mama) ... putting Collins (and the rest of the Seahawks who like rap) in a tough spot. 

Alex says it's a no-brainer -- his QB comes first.

There's more ... we also asked Alex if he would consider cutting his dreadlocks to avoid comparisons to Marshawn Lynch. But that's where the RB draws the line. 

Meantime, check out his highlights ... dude's a monster.
