breaking news

0731-russell-wilson-getty-01No more hard times for Russell Wilson -- the QB just signed a massive 4-year $87.6 million contract extension with the Seattle Seahawks ... with roughly $60 mil guaranteed!!!

Wilson was one of the lowest paid starting QBs in the NFL last year -- despite the fact he won a Super Bowl and 2 NFC championships in the past 2 seasons. 

Wilson just tweeted about the deal -- "Blessed to be w/ this organization for 4 more years! Can't wait to get on field w/ the fellas! @Seahawks #ChampionshipMindset."

Now, Wilson can afford to pay other people to push Ciara's kid in a stroller

Manchester United

Crash Seahawks Facility

Terrible Passers, Amazing Jugglers

7/20/2015 7:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

They're some of the best athletes in the world -- but when it comes to throwing a football, the guys from Manchester United proved worse than Tim Tebow

A bunch of Man U guys -- including Memphis Depay, Phil Jones, Daley Blind, Luke Shaw and Jonny Evans -- hit up the Seahawks training facility while they were in town to play Club America in Seattle. 

The guys got a tour from Seahawks stars Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse -- who tried to teach them how to throw around a football ... but it was awkward. 

Look, can't blame 'em ... it's not really their area of expertise -- but when they decided to juggle the pigskin with their feet, things got very entertaining. 

Check out the clip. 

Future

Calls Out Russell Wilson

You're NOT My Kid's Father!!!

7/16/2015 10:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Future is NOT happy with that photo of Russell Wilson pushing his son in a stroller -- saying if he was the kid, he would've jumped out and SLAPPED Russell in the face. 

The rapper appeared on "The Breakfast Club" and told Charlamagne tha God he's upset with his baby mama Ciara for allowing her new BF to get so involved in the parenting their 1-year-old. 

Future blames Ciara for setting him up -- but still blames Russell for trying to insert himself into his kid's life after only dating Ciara for a few short months. 

"At the end of the day, I'm not for the publicity stunts. Leave my son out of the publicity stunts. Just leave him out of your relationship."

EXCLUSIVE

No more sugarcoating it ... Tom Brady is a cheater ... period ... so says Seattle Seahawks badass Michael Bennett

Bennett -- one of the best defensive ends in the NFL -- played against Brady in the game AFTER the Deflategate ... and though he admits Seattle got beat fair and square in the Super Bowl, MB says there's no question Tom broke the rules in the AFC Championship. 

But after that, this clip gets HILARIOUS -- here are the CliffsNotes:

--  Advice for QB Russell Wilson now that he's dating Ciara
("Watch out for Future")

-- Favorite Leonardo DiCaprio movie of all time?
("'What's Eating Gilbert Grape' ... the one where he played like he's retarded")

-- Which celeb he thinks he looks like?
("Denzel or Will Smith") 

There's more ... it's pretty great stuff -- and props to Michael for launching a foundation to fight childhood obesity.

Crashes Ciara's Girls Night Out

...And She's Smitten

Exclusive Details

0511-ciara-russell-wilson-dc-steakhouse-TWITTER-02Girls night out isn't for BF's ... unless you're Russell Wilson ... 'cause TMZ Sports has learned the Seahawks QB surprised Ciara at a fancy steakhouse ... and she could not have been happier. 

Ciara and two girlfriends were having dinner Saturday night at The Palm -- one of D.C.'s best restaurants -- drinking wine and eating crab ... when Wilson unexpectedly arrived during dinner.

The restaurant G.M. Mike Melore tells us ... "Ciara was shocked to see him. She said she didn't know he was coming, but she was super happy he was there."

And, when you're rich and famous ... you can stay as late as you want.

"We normally close around 10:30, but we stayed open late for them, until 1:30 AM," Melore says.

"They were extremely nice and humble. They took pictures with every staff member that asked before they left."

No word on what the final bill looked like -- but when it came to gratuity Melore says ... "I can't give you a number for privacy reasons, but let's say this, Russell and Ciara are EXTREMELY generous."

Before Ciara came into the picture, Wilson -- who divorced his wife last year -- was spotted out with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition model Samantha Hoopes ... but clearly, she's out -- Ciara's in.

0417_seattle_seahawks_beach_photos_launchThe Seattle Seahawks stormed the beach in Hawaii this week ... for a full, hardcore workout session on the sand ... in front of a bunch of normies trying to relax on the sand. 

It's pretty cool -- imagine you're on a lounge chair with your pina colada ... when all of the sudden Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman and the rest of the squad roll up and start wind-sprinting!

BTW -- Richard was wearing those 5-toed shoe thingies ... and the whole gang brought it together for a group huddle at the end of the training sesh. 

Check out the pics.

Richard Sherman

Don't You Ever Try Me ...

With a Dirty Diaper!

4/7/2015 2:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Richard Sherman never backs down from a challenge ... and never hesitates to tell you about it (see Erin Andrews) -- and dirty diapers are no different for the Seahawks superstar.

Sherman was flying into LAX last night when he did something he never does -- help out an opposing QB ... in this case, the Redskins' RG III. Sherman had a baby boy back in February, and Griffin's got one on the way. 

Griffin told TMZ Sports yesterday everyone says his sleeping days are over -- and Sherm co-signed on that, and added another tip ... saying, "Get ready for a wild ride."

And it sounds like the wildest part for Richard has been dealing with soiled diapers. Check out the clip, especially if you're RG III.

Even a #1 CB has to tackle #2 when it comes to being a good daddy.

DJ's Vegas Bikini Rager

... With Brody Jenner

4/6/2015 9:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0406-brody-jenner-sherman-twitter-02Seems Richard Sherman's elbow's all better -- 'cause the guy was healthy enough to get on the 1s and 2s at a crazy pool party in Vegas this weekend ... with his pal Brody Jenner

The two -- along with Richard's teammate Kam Chancellor -- took over the DJ booth at Tao Beach at the Venetian ... providing the beats as a bunch of young, hot, barely-dressed (mostly drunk) people partied their faces off. 

Later that night, the gang took the party to Tao Nightclub ... where Jenner has a DJ residency. 

We're told the guys were cool, took pics with tons of fans -- and gambled a little bit later that night. 

Thanks to our friends at SpyOnVegas.com for the pics.

Marshawn Lynch

Hits Nightclub, Smokes

... But That's No Blunt

4/2/2015 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Beast Mode went into Nightclub Mode in Hollywood Thursday night ... with Marshawn Lynch hitting up 1Oak on the Sunset Strip with a ton of huge stars ... and then lighting up a cigarillo right on the street. 

Lynch partied until the club shut down ... after spending some time in the same building where Amber Rose, Kenyon Martin and Baron Davis were also partying that night. 

Afterward, Lynch got into a sick black Ferrari ... but then moved into a Range Rover, where he started smoking while parked on Sunset.  

We know what you're thinking ... but our in-house weed experts (lots of glaucoma over here) examined the video and say the item in Lynch's hand does not have the properties of a traditional blunt. 

One expert says, "It's not burning the way a blunt would burn."

Plus, Snoop Dogg told us the other day that Marshawn doesn't smoke weed.

Marshawn Lynch Doesn't Smoke Weed

3/26/2015 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

He might have a strain of weed named after him ... and he's always craving Skittles ... but Marshawn Lynch is no stoner ... so says Snoop Dogg

In fact, when our guy brought up the Beastmode strain that started hitting pot shops around Super Bowl time, Snoop made it clear that Marshawn had NOTHING to do with it. 

"My homeboy got a career to play," Snoop says ... "He's still in the NFL. He's got a commissioner to deal with."

There's more -- we also talked to Snoop about UCLA ... and if he's excited to go to the football games with Puff, since their sons will both be on the squad next season. 

He's fired up ... and not just because he pulled out a blunt and smoked it on camera.
