Roger Goodell's org. announced the punishment for the Steelers corner on Monday afternoon ... saying his involvement in a March 7 incident that ultimately led to his March 31 arrest violated the NFL's personal conduct policy.

The league did not elaborate on the ban further ... though it did say the 29-year-old -- who was just signed by Pittsburgh last month -- will be eligible for reinstatement starting on Oct. 29.

Travis Kelce just pulled off a Taylor Swift impression, crooning part of the chorus of one the pop star's biggest hits -- and ... it wasn't awful!!

The Kansas City Chiefs star belted out "Bad Blood" on this week's episode of his "New Heights" podcast ... when he and his big bro, Jason, were talking about the Eagles' recent addition of Kenny Pickett.

Jason told the audience his former team acquired the quarterback in a trade with the Steelers ... before Travis jumped in to explain Pittsburgh simply had to make the move because the former first-round pick was upset over the recent addition of Russell Wilson.

"Kenny and the Steelers," he said, "their relationship ended in a little baaaaaaad bloooood!"

"Because," Travis continued, "Kenny is saying he preferred to move on."

Jason let the tune go without further reaction -- and the two didn't make reference to Travis' girlfriend again during the episode.

Travis, though, did talk about a night out in L.A. that he had sans Swift last week -- raving to Jason about the Justin Timberlake show he attended.

Prince Harry Presents Award at NFL Honors ... Steelers Star Cameron Heyward Awestruck

ROYAL HONOR
CBS/NFL

Prince Harry flew back to the U.S. and made a surprise appearance at the 2024 NFL Honors -- after a short visit with his cancer-stricken father King Charles III in England.

The Duke of Sussex strolled out onstage at the Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas Thursday evening to present the Walter Payton Man of the Year award to Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle Cameron Heyward.

Heyward seemed totally awestruck by Harry as the NFL star accepted his statue and stepped up to the mic to make a speech.

Check out the vid ... Heyward addressed the audience while motioning with his arm to Harry, saying, "That's freakin' Harry. Oh my god, I'm in shock. That's Prince Harry."

Harry smiled, taking it all in stride while shaking hands with Heyward on the stage and posing for photos with him after the event.

As you know ... Harry hopped a Tuesday flight to London from L.A. to visit King Charles after his recent cancer diagnosis. When he arrived in the UK capital, Harry went straight to the royal residence, where he reportedly stayed with Charles for about 45 minutes before taking off.

While his exit appeared abrupt, it's no secret Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, have been estranged from Charles and the rest of the Royal Family for quite some time. And the world has had a front-row seat to all their drama.

Hopefully, Harry and the others can work out their differences and become one big happy royal family again. We'll just have to see.

hOMENAJE DE LA REALEZA
CBS/NFL

El príncipe Harry voló de regreso a los Estados Unidos e hizo una aparición sorpresa en el NFL Honors 2024, después de hacer una breve visita a su padre, el rey Carlos III en Inglaterra luego de que este fuera diagnosticado de cáncer.

El duque de Sussex se paseó por el escenario del Teatro Resorts World en Las Vegas el jueves por la noche para presentar el premio Walter Payton al Hombre del Año, que fue otorgado al jugador defensivo de los Pittsburgh Steelers Cameron Heyward.

Heyward parecía totalmente impresionado por la presencia de Harry mientras aceptaba su estatua de la NFL y se acercaba al micrófono para hacer su discurso.

Mira el video: Heyward se dirigió al público mientras señalaba a Harry con el brazo, diciendo: "Ese es el maldito Harry. Dios mío, estoy en shock. Ese es el Príncipe Harry".

Harry sonrió y se tomó todo con mucha calma mientras estrechaba su mano con Heyward en el escenario y posaba para las fotos después del evento.

Como ustedes saben, Harry viajó a Londres desde Los Ángeles el martes para visitar al rey Carlos después de que fuera diagnosticado recientemente de cáncer. Cuando llegó a la capital del Reino Unido, Harry fue directamente a la residencia real, donde al parecer se quedó con Charles durante unos 45 minutos antes de despegar.

Aunque su salida pareció abrupta, no es ningún secreto que Harry y su esposa Meghan Markle llevan bastante tiempo distanciados de Carlos y del resto de la Familia Real. Y el mundo ha podido presenciar todo su drama desde la primera fila.

Esperemos que Harry y los demás puedan resolver sus diferencias y volver a ser una gran familia real feliz. Ya veremos.

Ryan Clark ATL Should Go After Belichick, Fields ... It'd Be A Helluva Match!!!

This Changes Things
TMZSports.com

Ryan Clark tells TMZ Sports if the Atlanta Falcons are looking to get better quickly ... acquiring both Justin Fields and Bill Belichick would be a heck of a place to start.

Of course, the Falcons appear to be exploring the idea of bringing both guys on board this offseason ... and Clark made it clear to us this week he'd have no qualms with either addition.

"I could see that being a match in Atlanta that would work not only for a coach," the 44-year-old ex-Steelers defensive back said, "but also a player."

As for how possible it'd be ... it seems it could very well go down. After all, the Falcons have already interviewed Belichick for their vacant head coaching role ... while Fields appears to be available via trade in Chicago after the Bears locked up the No. 1 overall draft pick through the Carolina Panthers.

Clark seems confident Belichick would want Fields under center, too ... knowing the coach loves to acquire talent that's previously performed well against him.

"Justin Fields played absolutely out of his mind against Bill Belichick last year," Clark said.

As for the rest of the coaching carousel around the NFL, Clark said he could envision Jim Harbaugh landing in L.A. ... and he told us he could also see big shakeups coming in Dallas and Philadelphia too.

You Can't Find This Anywhere Else

Meanwhile, Clark was pumped for this week's episode of "Inside The NFL," which airs Tuesdays on The CW ... telling us there are some mic'd up moments from this weekend's wild card games he's super excited to bring to viewers.

Bills, Steelers Fans Snow Way We're Missing This Game!!!

DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW
X / @C_AdamskiTrib

A little bit of snow -- okay, a TON of snow -- wasn't gonna stop Bills and Steelers fans from making their way to the stadium for Monday's Wild Card game ... with diehard supporters trudging to their seats in time for kickoff.

The playoff matchup was originally slated to go down on Sunday ... but Mother Nature had other plans, as a snowstorm forced the N.Y. governor and NFL commish Roger Goodell to push it back a day.

The Bills pulled out all the stops in hopes of getting Highmark Stadium ready in time for the contest ... even offering folks $20 an hour to help clear out the snow.

Despite the efforts, there was plenty left over from the storm ... but judging by videos of spectators walking through knee-deep piles in order to get to their seats, they didn't care one bit.

In fact, when Buffalo tight end Dawson Knox caught the first touchdown of the game, Bills Mafia made use of the extra snow by throwing it up in the air to celebrate.

All things considered, the field looks damn good for the game ... with not one snowflake in sight.

The Bills -- who are no strangers to uncooperative weather -- have the early lead over Pittsburgh ... but there's still plenty of ball left.

Ryan Shazier Files For Divorce From Wife

Ryan Shazier is officially calling things off with Michelle Shazier ... filing for divorce from his longtime partner less than two months after she publicly accused him of cheating.

According to court records obtained by TMZ Sports, the former NFL star filed the docs on Wednesday.

No further details surrounding the matter were revealed, however, as a court has ordered the case to be sealed.

An attorney for Ryan declined to comment when we reached out on Thursday.

As we previously reported, Michelle went scorched earth on Ryan back in late November, claiming he sent raunchy texts to another woman.

The messages, she said, showed Ryan flirting ... before sending links to books filled with sexual content.

"Infidelity at its finest!" Michelle said in a caption on her post of the images of the messages. "I can't sit here and keep hiding anymore . You can have it. I deserve better. 🤍 This is Ryan… he’s a liar and a cheater!"

Ryan said in a statement to TMZ Sports at the time of the allegations, "Michelle and I have been living apart and are currently separated. As we work through what comes next for our family, I ask for privacy and prayers."

Michelle and Ryan -- who have raised two boys together -- met well before he suffered his catastrophic spine injury in 2017. They married in 2019.

Rashard Mendenhall Let's Replace The Pro Bowl I Want All-Black vs. All-White Game Instead!!!

Rashard Mendenhall wants to see the NFL's annual All-Star game get a big-time makeover ... suggesting the Pro Bowl evolve into -- get this -- a contest that pits the league's Black players vs. its white ones.

The ex-Pittsburgh Steelers star came up with the eyebrow-raising idea after he said he became agitated listening to white people break down NFL action.

"I'm sick of average white guys commenting on football," the former Super Bowl champion said in a post on X.

"Y’all not even good at football. Can we please replace the Pro Bowl with an All-Black vs. All-White bowl so these cats can stop trying to teach me who’s good at football."

The statement was polarizing ... though ex-NFL star J.J. Watt actually seemed to have some kind of fun entertaining the idea.

"We’d get cooked at corner, not gonna lie," Watt said in a comment on the post. "Nobody on our squad is covering Tyreek [Hill]." He added a crying/laughing emoji as well.

Of course, there's no way in hell a tilt like this could go down -- not only because of the obvious ... but also, the Pro Bowl doesn't even exist anymore (it's merely a skills competition these days).

Steelers' Damontae Kazee Suspended Rest Of Season ... After Violent Hit On Michael Pittman Jr.

Steelers safety Damontae Kazee has just been sidelined for the rest of this season ... after the NFL slapped him with a suspension for his dangerous hit on Michael Pittman Jr. over the weekend.

In a statement announcing the ban on Monday, the league said the blow -- which happened in the second quarter of Pittsburgh's loss to Indianapolis on Saturday -- was "a serious violation of the playing rules."

The play was one of the most violent of the season -- Kazee left his feet and made contact with Pittman Jr.'s head/neck -- and the NFL made it clear when revealing Kazee's punishment it doesn't want that kind of act ever repeated again.

"You had an unobstructed path to your opponent and the illegal contact could have been avoided," NFL exec Jon Runyan said in a letter to Kazee revealing the suspension. "Your actions were flagrant, and as a result, you were disqualified from the game."

Kazee will now miss Pittsburgh's games against the Bengals, Seahawks, Ravens and any potential playoff games this season.

Runyan noted in his letter that previous violations factored into Kazee's lengthy ban.

"When players violate the rules intended to protect player safety on a repeated basis, and particularly when the violations carry with them a significant risk of injury to an opposing player, it is appropriate to impose substantially greater penalties," he said.

Kazee -- who started 9 games for Pittsburgh this year, piling up two interceptions and 61 total tackles -- will be allowed to appeal the suspension.

Diontae Johnson Addresses Giving Up During Game ... 'I'm Not Perfect'

Diontae Johnson is owning up to his lack of effort in the middle of the Steelers' matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals ... saying he addressed the situation with his teammates and vowed to do better moving forward.

The 27-year-old wide receiver faced a ton of backlash for seemingly giving up in the middle of a play during Pittsburgh's 16-10 win on Sunday ... with game footage showing him appearing uninterested in going for the ball after Jaylen Warren fumbled in the first quarter.

Johnson spoke with reporters about the now-viral lowlight on Wednesday ... and he's looking to get past the whole ordeal.

"I addressed the situation with my teammates," Johnson told the media. "They know how I feel and how I feel about the situation. I'm not perfect. All I can do is move forward and just keep playing football."

Johnson -- who was pissed he messed up on a potential touchdown catch on the previous play -- explained he does not want to be judged based on one moment ... and he promised to prove it with his play from here on out.

"One play doesn’t define me," he added. "It never will. I didn’t come up playing football like that. It looks bad on film. From here on out, going forward, just be smart, keep playing to the whistle."

Titans' Treylon Burks Carted Off Field ... After Suffering Scary Injury

Tennessee Titans star Treylon Burks was strapped to a backboard and carted off the field after suffering a scary injury during Thursday night's game ... but, thankfully, he now appears to be doing OK.

The terrifying moment happened late in the fourth quarter of Tennessee's tilt with the Steelers in Pittsburgh ... when Burks attempted to make a circus catch to keep a late-game Titans drive alive.

The 23-year-old jumped up for the ball, grabbed it with two hands ... but when he came crashing to the grass, it slipped from his grasp as his head and neck slammed violently into the ground.

Burks lay motionless for several moments ... before trainers and medical personnel rushed to stabilize him.

The wide receiver -- a former first-round pick -- was eventually taken to the locker room ... where Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said he was showing positive signs of recovery.

"He's alert, moving," Vrabel told reporters after the game. "I'll have more of an update hopefully tomorrow, but he's back there being evaluated. But, I would say that the way it looked -- it's probably better than how it looked."

Adding insult to injury, the Titans couldn't complete their comeback attempt against the Steelers ... falling, 20-16.

ANTONIO BROWN PAGA 15.000 DÓLARES DE MANUTENCIÓN Después del arresto

Antonio Brown soltó $15.000 para los pagos de manutención para los hijos después de su detención a principios de este mes. En un video que publicó el martes parecía bastante amargado por la situación.

Brown fue encerrado el domingo después de haber sido acusado de evadir los pagos a su ex, Wiltrice Jackson, pero poco tiempo después, se repartió los $15K necesario para salir de la cárcel.

El martes compartió un video en Instagram que lo muestra cantando algunas letras de Young Jeezy que parecía mostrar que estaba enojado con Jackson, la madre de su hija de 15 años de edad.

"Y no quiero decirle a mi hijo que sus madres no valen nada", canturreó mientras sostenía lo que parecía ser un recibo por el pago de manutención y un gran fajo de billetes. "Y esto no se trata de mí, ella es solo una perra hambrienta de dinero".

pagando las deudas

Jackson le dijo a TMZ Sports la semana pasada que estaba molesta con Brown por no pagar la manutención de su hija, alegando que le debía casi $31.000.

"Yo quiero que lo arresten", dijo. "Porque ahora mismo, se está burlando del juez... de todo, porque se siente intocable".

Desde que salió de la cárcel, Brown ha sido visto en un centro comercial de compras y en un rascacielos de Nueva York.

Antonio Brown Forks Over $15K Toward Child Support ... After Arrest

Antonio Brown coughed up $15,000 toward child support payments following his arrest earlier this month ... and in a video he posted Tuesday, he seemed bitter about the situation.

Brown was locked up on Sunday after he had been accused of ducking payments to his ex, Wiltrice Jackson ... but a short time later, he doled out the $15K necessary to get out of jail.

And, on Tuesday, he shared a video on Instagram showing him singing some Young Jeezy lyrics that seemed to show he was mad at Jackson, the mother of his 15-year-old daughter.

"And I don't wanna tell my child that his moms ain't s***," he belted out while holding what appeared to be a receipt for the child support payment and a large wad of cash. "And this ain't about me, she just a money hungry bitch."

PAYING OFF THE DEBT

Jackson told TMZ Sports just last week that she was upset with Brown for not paying child support for their daughter ... claiming he owed her nearly $31,000.

"I do want him arrested," she said. "Because, right now, he's making a mockery out of the judge, out of everything, because he feels like he's untouchable."

Since he was released from jail, Brown has been spotted at a mall on a shopping spree ... as well as in a high-rise in New York City.
