11/12/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1111-marshawn-lynch-mcdonalds-2_WMMarshawn Lynch might be the BEST MCDONALD'S CUSTOMER EVER ... 'cause he gave $500 to a Mickey D's staffer last week ... because he wanted to help the kid out. 

It all went down at McDonald's in Dallas last Sunday after the Seahawks beat the Cowboys -- when Beast Mode walked into the joint and struck up a conversation with 17-year-old Terrance Downs, who was mopping at the time. 

"I told him I liked his shoes -- navy blue Buscemis -- and how I wanted to buy a pair and we all started talking," Downs tells TMZ Sports

Lynch asked him about school and what he wanted to do in life, and Downs told him he's into fashion and wants to own a boutique one day. 

That's when Lynch whipped out $500 and handed it over ... telling Downs, "If you're serious about getting those shoes, here's some money to help you get 'em. My job is to continue to see you grow."

A rep for the owner of the McDonald's confirmed the story -- adding, "Marshawn left a huge positive impact on Terrance." 

As for Downs, he tells us he went out and bought the shoes ... and says he's even more motivated to become successful so, "I can do the same thing for someone else one day."

1103-russell-wilson-ebay-01Russell Wilson continues to prove he's the greatest guy in the world ... auctioning off his game worn cleats from the Seahawks' victory over the 49ers last month to aid in the fight against children's cancer.

Wilson announced the donation on Twitter moments ago ... with a message that read, "Had a tough time letting go of these...auctioning my game worn cleats from our win over SF to fight childhood cancer."

The Seahawks beat the 49ers 20-3 on October 22nd ... Russell made sure to scribble in the date and score on the shoes. 

The cleats are already ON FIRE on eBay ... fetching a price of nearly $900 with seven days of bidding still left to go, which tells you they're going to net a big sum when all is said and done.

And you thought Colin Kaepernick wouldn't be vaguely involved in anything successful this year ...

Seattle Seahawks Crash 'They Were Revving Engines, Racing' ... Witness Says

10/21/2015 2:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A witness who was at the Seahawks facility during Tuesday's crash says Fred Jackson was revving his engine at another driver before both cars rocketed down a 1 mile stretch ... leaving no doubt they were drag racing. 

We spoke with Jason Hellervik -- an autograph seeker who was waiting for players at the facility when he saw Fred's black Corvette pull up to a stop sign next to a red Dodge Charger. 

"They were both stopped at the same time, they both revved their engines and they both left without stopping," says Jason, who was with his buddies at the time ... "We were like what are these idiots doing?"

Hellervik says he was with 6 other guys at the time of the crash -- who all witnessed the apparent drag racing scene -- and none of them have been contacted by police. He says if contacted, he would definitely cooperate with investigators. 

For his part, Jackson says he was not racing anyone. 

Marshawn Lynch On Scene After Drag Race Teammate Fred Jackson Crashes

10/20/2015 5:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-fred-jackson-marshawn-lynch-crash-GALLERY-LAUNCH_TMZSPORTS-01Seattle Seahawks running back Fred Jackson wrecked his sports car while drag racing with someone after a team practice ... according to witnesses.

The accident went down near the team's practice facility in Renton, WA. Witnesses tell us Jackson appeared to be racing with someone in a red Dodge Charger ... down a straightaway on a public street. We're told Fred was in a black Corvette, and somehow lost control .. smashing into a large planter box and then a stop sign. 

As you can see in our pics and video ... Jackson's teammates Marshawn Lynch (driving a white Jaguar F-Type convertible) and Richard Sherman were some of the first people on the scene. You can see them trying to help Jackson open the doors on his 'Vette after the accident. 

Police responded, but Seahawks staffers also showed up and took Jackson back to the team facility. It's unclear if Jackson suffered any injuries. We also don't know who was driving the Charger, but in our video it's parked a short distance away from the wreck.

Renton cops say at this point, there is no evidence indicating a drag race. We're told the responding officer gave team personnel permission to take Jackson and evaluate him.
