Drew Brees 2-3 More Years Left ... Says Ex-Teammate

3/18/2019 1:45 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

40-year-old Drew Brees will be playing in the NFL for AT LEAST two more years ... so says Jonathan Vilma, his ex-Saints teammate.

"I think that Drew has, in my objective opinion, about another 2-3 years left."

Of course, Drew's future is back in the news 'cause Teddy Bridgewater just turned down the Dolphins' starting QB job to return to New Orleans to be Brees' backup.

Most figured it's 'cause Drew's days in the league are numbered and he needs a successor ... but Vilma -- who played with Brees for 6 seasons in New Orleans -- tells us Teddy could be waiting a while for that.

"If you ask Drew, he's got like another 10 or 15 years left!"

But, that doesn't mean Vilma hates Bridgewater's choice to stay ... in fact, the former linebacker tells us he thinks Teddy "made a smart long-term decision."

As for Bridgewater, he told reporters after re-upping with the Saints last week that, "I’m still 26 years old. The way I look at it is that I’ll have another opportunity to start in this league at some point."

Translation ... he's down to wait out Drew -- and Vilma's all for it!!

Late Dolphins Owner Florida Mansion Hits Auction Block Previously $27 MILLION!!!

2/23/2019 12:35 AM PST

Wanna ball out like a Florida billionaire?? The late Wayne Huizenga's incredibly massive Fort Lauderdale mansion is hitting the auction block ... and it's going to the highest bidder!!!

The former Dolphins, Marlins and Panthers owner -- who died last year -- owned the 20,653-square-ft estate on the riverfront ... and it was previously listed at a whoppin' $27 million.

The 10-room pad is sick ... complete with a personal gym, workshop, theater (after all, dude co-founded Blockbuster), billiards room and a kitchen with a pizza oven.

The whole property has five different buildings ... and there are multiple safe rooms throughout the place.

If that ain't enough ... there's enough water room to store a 135-ft megayacht.

The auction kicks off next month through Concierge Auctions and will sell without reserve. 

Good luck!!!

Kenyan Drake 'Miami Miracle' Ball ... Sells For $18k At Auction

1/21/2019 7:56 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

2:00 PM PT --Steiner Sports now tells us the consignor agreed to wave the reserve ... meaning the ball has sold for over $18K.

10:10 AM PT -- Steiner Sports tells us bidding for the "Miami Miracle" ball hit $18K ... but failed to reach the $20,000 reserve price -- so the sale didn't go through.

The football used to sink the New England Patriots in the "Miami Miracle" game earlier this season just sold for $18k at auction ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The pigskin Kenyan Drake famously ran in with no time left on the clock in a Week 14 stunning win over the Pats received plenty of attention -- earning 23 total bids during the Steiner Sports auction.

But ... we're told Kenyan -- who openly pled for fans to give him the game-winning football in a trade for some Dolphins gear and tickets -- wasn't one of the bidders.

Still, the ball could be a great investment for whoever ultimately won it ... it could be one of the only blemishes on what might end up being Tom Brady's last Super Bowl run (then again, who knows with this guy). 

Probably worth a little more than some gloves, a jersey and tix -- right, Kenyan??

Danny Amendola, Olivia Culpo Looks Like It's Round 3!!!

1/1/2019 7:03 AM PST

Olivia Culpo and Danny Amendola may have forgotten old acquaintances -- at least one of them -- because it looks like they're back together.

Danny and Olivia each posted identical videos of fireworks to their IG stories ... videos obviously shot on New Year's Eve.

The videos were shot at a beach location, and the fact he plays for the Dolphins may be a geographical clue.

Olivia and Danny broke up a few months ago after he hit the beach with a super hot woman. After the pic surfaced, Olivia proclaimed she was keeping the $12,000 Rolex she bought for Danny's birthday.

If this is real, it will be the third time Danny and Olivia got together. They met in 2016, dated for 2 years, broke up, got back together last year but the woman in the bikini buzz killed that one. But, old flame don't douse easily. 

Dolphins Lineman Ted Larsen Kenyan Drake Made A Great Play ... But I Wanted To Score!!

12/10/2018 3:50 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Dolphins had one of the most EPIC walk off winning touchdowns in NFL history ... and Miami guard Ted Larsen laid out the block that made the TD possible.

But, how could the play have been even better?

WITH A FAT GUY TOUCHDOWN!!!

At least, that's what Larsen's saying ... 'cause the Dolphins OL tells TMZ Sports that while Kenyan Drake's play was amazing -- he says it coulda been even better if he got the rock.

"Obviously we scored and we won -- I would have selfishly liked if they had pitched me the ball or something like that!"

Larsen, sadly, didn't get the ball in the epic play ... but he DID throw the key block that sprung Drake for the final yards of the game-winner.

As for if he DID happen to get the ball ... Larsen says nobody else was gonna touch it, 'cause, "I was going to try to take it right to the end zone myself!"

And, when it comes to the celebration -- Larsen says he woulda done the exact same thing that Drake did!!!!

Which, as it turns out, Kenyan is REALLY regretting today ...

Kenyan Drake I Screwed Up In 'Miami Miracle' ... I Need That Ball Back!

12/10/2018 2:11 PM PST
Breaking News

Kenyan Drake is admitting he REALLY screwed up in the "Miami Miracle" on Sunday ... 'cause of the historic football he threw into the stands -- he says he needs that thing back!

After the Dolphins RB pulled off the most improbable TD of the season -- completing a 69-yard game-winning score with no time left against the Pats -- Drake threw the ball about 30 rows up into the stands.

Turns out ... the Miami superstar and his team would kinda like to have that thing back.

"Yesterday was one of the most amazing moments of my life and I was glad to share it with all you guys," Drake says.

"But, I have a PSA. I threw the ball in the stands, and I would love to have it back."

So, what's Drake offering up in return for the piece of history??

Kenyan says cleats, gloves, a jersey and even tickets!!

Begs the question ... is the pigskin worth that -- or should Kenyan be offering up even more????

NFL's Rey Maualuga Gets Anger Management In Nightclub Battery Case

11/26/2018 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

NFL linebacker Rey Maualuga dodged a bullet ... 'cause he ain't gonna spend a single minute behind bars for allegedly grabbing a club employee by the throat -- as long as he stays outta trouble.

As we previously reported, Maualuga -- who spent 9 seasons in the NFL with the Bengals and Dolphins -- was arrested in Miami in Nov. 2017 after officials say he got into a physical altercation over a $40 bar tab. He's accused of shoving and grabbing a bar employee by the throat.

31-year-old Maualuga was initially charged with misdemeanor battery and faced up to a year in jail if convicted. 

But, TMZ Sports learned, the former USC Trojan cut a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to complete a pretrial diversion program and, in exchange, the charge will be dropped. 

The program requires Rey to attend two 6-hour anger management courses -- designed to teach conflict resolution and impulse control ... and he's gotta stay away from the club.

Seems like a good deal to us. 

Rey -- who was cut by the Dolphins after his arrest -- is currently a free agent.

Dolphins' Kenyan Drake Turkey Dinners At Hard Rock Stadium ... For Underprivileged Kids

11/18/2018 12:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kenyan Drake's doing his best Martha Stewart impression Sunday ... throwing a Thanksgiving bash for underprivileged kids -- and it's all going down at the Dolphins' stadium!!

Miami's on a bye this week ... so Drake's taking advantage of the empty Hard Rock Stadium by having a feast with 50 children from the Boys & Girls Club of Broward County -- TMZ Sports has learned.

We're told most of the kids have never had a traditional Thanksgiving dinner ... so the star running back is really providing a special treat.

In addition to the turkey, gravy and all the fixins... Drake is also handing out gift baskets (filled with food for the kids' families) and autographed cards.

We're told Drake was very involved in the Boys & Girls Club as a kid in Atlanta ... so the cause is super special to the ex-Alabama star.

Drake ain't the only NFL stud puttin' in this kinda work -- as we previously reported, Cam Newton is set to feed 1,200 kids at his annual "Cam's Thanksgiving Jam" next week.

Props to all!

Dolphins Fan Sues Team Over Stadium Accident ... You Screwed Up My Toe Forever!

11/11/2018 12:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Dolphins fan who had his big toe crushed like a grape in a freak accident at the team's stadium is now suing the Fins ... saying his foot is jacked up forever!!

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Jean Michaud was at a bar area inside Hard Rock Stadium during a Dolphins game in September, when he says a giant piece of marble slab fell off the bar and smashed his foot.

Michaud says, when he took off his shoe ... he was missing part of his big toe!!

Now, 6 weeks removed from surgery to fix it all ... Jean tells us he's still sufferin' from the accident -- and has filed a lawsuit against the team AND the stadium for his troubles.

Jean tells us he still can't run ... has trouble walking ... and will have issues with his right foot for the rest of his life.

"There's things that I have to deal with for the rest of my life due to their negligence. That's pretty much what [this lawsuit] came down to."

For their part ... the Dolphins DID send Jean a get well soon fruit basket ... but Michaud says for as much as he appreciated the gesture -- that ain't enough.

Jean's suing for an undisclosed amount ... explaining to us, "The pain that I've had to deal with, the inconveniences to my normal life ... and just the future repercussions that'll come from this as well" have led him to this point.

Danny Amendola Hangin' with Olivia Culpo Look-alike

10/28/2018 10:31 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Miami Dolphins star Danny Amendola has the weekend off -- so he hit the beach with a hot chick in a bikini.

The girl in the photos isn't Danny's girlfriend, Olivia Culpo -- she was in L.A. the day before these were taken. Look, it's not like they're hooking up here ... they're just talking close and having fun. 

We don't know who this other woman is. Maybe they're just friends and nothing's going on here. Either way ... she's definitely a cutie.

Remember ... Olivia and Danny just got back together earlier this summer after breaking up a few months before that. They've been on-and-off (but mostly on) these past 2 years.

Things seemed to be going great for the recently reconciled couple these past few months, as Olivia's been posting tons of photos and videos of the two of them together on social media. They even hit up a beach hand-in-hand last month very similar to this one.

Dolphins Fan Suffers Gruesome Toe Injury In Freak Stadium Accident

9/30/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

This is really, really, REALLY gross. 

A Miami Dolphins fan left Hard Rock Stadium last weekend without part of his toe -- when it was SMASHED TO BEJESUS in a freak accident during the game. 

Jean Michaud was hanging out at a bar area inside the stadium while the Fins were taking on the Oakland Raiders when a heavy piece of marble slab fell off the bar and smashed his foot. 

Michaud says he took off his shoe and noticed his big toe looked like a smashed grape ... and immediately called for help. 

Paramedics raced to the scene and began to treat Michaud on the spot. He was transported to a nearby hospital where he underwent surgery. The big toe was partially amputated. He was discharged the next day. 

It's unclear how the slab fell off the bar and onto Michaud's foot -- but he claims he wasn't leaning on it or messing with it in any way. He's since hired a lawyer and is weighing his legal options. 

We reached out to the stadium and the Dolphins for comment, but haven't heard back from either party.
