Williamson said he was contacted by a league rep over the cleats and advised not to wear them. Several police organizations and even his coach offered to pay for any potential fines.  

But when we asked the NFL if Williamson would be fined, since he ended up wearing them on Sunday -- we were told straight-up by a league spokesperson, "No, nothing anticipated."

As for the cleats, Williamson is auctioning them off with proceeds going to Operation Warrior Wishes

Titans' Kendall Wright Baby Mama's Car Repo'd ... After Child Support Demand

1/11/2016 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tennessee Titans star Kendall Wright has serious off-season headaches ... his baby mama is taking him to court for child support, and thinks he's getting revenge by repossessing her car.

In court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Kortney Michelle Owens-Rader says she has a 5-month-old baby boy with Wright named Kendall Jr. -- and the Titans leading receiver agreed in December to pay her $2,100/month in child support, starting in 2016. 

The docs make it seem like everything's cool between Kortney and Kendall, but sources close to her say that's not the case. We're told Wright had been "taking care" of Kortney -- a singer signed to Floyd Mayweather's record label -- but nothing was on paper.

Cut to last week when, according to our sources, Kortney's 2014 Cadillac XTS -- a gift from Wright in happier times -- was repossessed. We're told Kortney thinks Wright stopped making payments because he was pissed she took him to court.

This probably won't get better ... they're due back in court in a couple of months. We've reached out to Wright's reps, but nothing back yet.

JBJ's not buying the Titans ... these 5 words he swears to you.  

Reports surfaced this week that Bon Jovi would have "considerable interest" in buying the Tennessee Titans -- if they are put up for sale.

FYI -- Bon Jovi was part of group that tried to buy the Buffalo Bills last year and he owned an Arena Football League team back in the day. Plus, there are rumors the current owners of the Titans could be shopping the team around in the very near future. 

But Bon Jovi tells TMZ Sports ... for now, he's not trying to take over the Titans. 

"Rumors of my interest in the Tennessee Titans are nothing more than that. I am not part of any group perusing a team that is not for sale."

Doesn't mean he won't try to buy an NFL team in the future -- but for now, it ain't happening.

Check out the clip -- Sam seems as down with Mariota as every chick seems to be down with Sam ... which is very, very, down.
