Didn't take long for AJ McCarron to get over the Raiders loss Sunday ... 'cause dude had the happiest reunion with his son at the airport -- and the vid is adorable.

AJ's been away from his 2-year-old and his model wife, Katherine Webb, for a few weeks ... but the QB flew back to 'Bama after Oakland's game -- and his reunion with his son couldn't have been cuter.

Tripp is held back until his pops strolls through the door ... and then the baby boy unleashes all his love for AJ with a "DADDY!!!!" yell and a big hug.

"When you’re reunited with your BFF #5weekswithoutdaddy," Katherine posted on social media.

So, why's AJ back in town when the Raiders still have two weeks left in the season??

Webb is SUPER pregnant with the couple's second child ... and says the new baby is actually due TODAY!!!

AJ and the Raiders don't play again until Monday ... so timing is great -- McCarron's got an extra day off this week.

EXCLUSIVE

It's bad enough the Raiders are terrible ... but now they're hurting Carson Daly!!!!

Everyone knows the "Today" show star is a sensitive guy ... and he really cares about the Silver & Black. 

So, when we asked how he was handling this dumpster fire of a season, Carson kept it real. 

"Please don't get me started ... I don't want to cry. It hurts." 

ARE YOU READING THIS JON GRUDEN?! DO YOU SEE WHAT YOU'RE DOING TO OUR NATIONAL TREASURE?!

But wait, there's more ... we asked if the Raiders should consider moving on from quarterback Derek Carr

"No. It's Gruden I have an issue with right now" ... adding, "I'm just upset Khalil Mack's gone. I'm upset [Amari Cooper] is gone."

"I'm very distraught over it. I'm a die-hard fan."

See what you did, Raiders? You see this? It's not okay. 

NFL's Aldon Smith Convicted In Dom. Violence Case

11/26/2018 2:38 PM PST
Breaking News

Ex-NFL star Aldon Smith was just convicted in his domestic violence case in which he allegedly roughed up his fiancee ... but he will NOT go to jail if he keeps his nose clean. 

As we previously reported, the former Oakland Raiders defensive end was arrested back in March after his fiancee (now ex-fiancee) claimed Smith attacked her at their Bay Area home during a booze-fueled rage. 

Smith was initially hit with 4 misdemeanor charges -- domestic violence, assault w/ force likely to produce great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism and faced several years in jail. 

But, on Monday, the 29-year-old struck a deal with prosecutors in which he pled no contest to 2 counts -- violating a court order and false imprisonment. 

In exchange, he was sentenced to 90 days in county jail -- but he got credit for time served for the days he already spent in jail and also for his stint in a live-in alcohol treatment facility

He also got 3 years probation, 1 year of domestic violence counseling and 25 hours of community service. 

During the hearing, the judge allowed a victim statement to be read out loud in court -- in which Smith's ex said, "I may never be the same" but also wished him luck in getting/staying sober. 

District Attorney George Gascon tells TMZ Sports ... "The victim in this case showed incredible resolve".... "If you are a victim of domestic violence, my office's Victim Services Division is here to help."

Kurt Warner Warns Jon Gruden ... Don't Trade Derek Carr!!

11/23/2018 12:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jon Gruden traded both Amari Cooper AND Khalil Mack ... but Kurt Warner tells TMZ Sports the Raiders coach will REALLY regret things if he gives up on Derek Carr the same way.

"It's so hard to find one of those guys that when you've found him, you better hold on to him," Kurt says.

Of course, rumors of Chucky trading away Carr have been swirling for weeks ... and kicked up once again Sunday when the two were spotted butting heads on the sideline.

Carr's performance this season hasn't helped his case, either -- leading the Raiders to just a 2-8 record so far.

But ... Warner tells us it'd be a big mistake to get rid of Carr -- even in Gruden's complete teardown project.

"I think now it's just, build around him," Kurt says.

We also asked Warner about Philadelphia's quarterback issues ... and he tells us why he can't see any way Doug Pederson pulls Carson Wentz for Nick Foles this year.

Deion Sanders Oakland Raiders Are Garbage 'Can't Take This No More!'

11/2/2018 6:18 AM PDT
Breaking News

Deion Sanders is declaring the Oakland Raiders UNWATCHABLE ... calling Jon Gruden's team straight-up GARBAGE after losing to the 49ers.

AND, HE'S RIGHT -- THEY WERE TRASH THURSDAY NIGHT!!! SOMEONE COME GET YA RAIDAS!!

The Raiders fell to 1-7 after getting torched by San Francisco's 3RD-STRING quarterback, Nick Mullens, 34-3 on "Thursday Night Football" ... and Prime says he couldn't find the TV remote fast enough.

"I'm sorry, I can't take this no more. PLEASE, could somebody get these Raiders off my TV??" Sanders says.

During the game, the camera showed Gruden getting into it with his defensive coordinator, Paul Guenther ... and now there's speculation PG could get the axe. 

Problem for Gruden, it wasn't just defense -- his offense STUNK too!!! 

As for Chuck, Gruden says he still believes the Raiders will win a championship in the near future. 

BUT GOOD LORD, AIN'T NOBODY BELIEVING YOU AFTER THAT TRASH PERFORMANCE!!!

Kaepernick's Attorney Hints Raiders and Pats Interested ... 'Stay Tuned'

9/20/2018 6:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Colin Kaepernick and Tom Brady ... on the same team???

That seems to be the suggestion coming from Colin's attorney, Mark Geragos -- who's teasing to TMZ Sports that two NFL teams could be interested in signing the QB. 

"I would just say, 'Stay tuned' ... that next week there may be some news."

Our guy pushed to get more information -- and Geragos started dropping hints about the 2 teams. 

The first clue obviously points to the Oakland Raiders. 

"I'll say this ... if Al Davis was still alive."

The interesting part of that comment -- Al's son, Mark Davis, took over the Raiders when his father passed away ... and Mark recently told us he thought it was a good idea for Nike to sign Kaep. 

The other clue was a little more abstruse, but he suggests Patriots owner Robert Kraft could be interested in Colin. 

There's more to the clip ... Geragos also says Colin and his girlfriend, Nessa, are NOT boycotting the NFL. They're watching games (they're fans) and they're supporting players like Kenny Stills

Geragos also clears up some misinformation about Colin's deal with Nike -- confirming what TMZ Sports already told you ... he is FOR SURE getting his own shoe as part of his deal with the Swoosh.

Bill Romanowski Raiders Messed Up ... Khalil Mack Is Like A Lawrence Taylor!

9/11/2018 1:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Raiders legend Bill Romanowski says he's got a bad taste in his mouth over the Khalil Mack trade ... telling TMZ Sports Oakland's gonna REALLY regret giving Mack away.

"This is a guy that comes around, like a Lawrence Taylor, once in a lifetime," Romo says.

Remember ... Khalil and Jon Gruden never even spoke after Chuckie took the head coaching job -- and Gruden decided to punt the All-Pro to the Bears instead of working with him earlier this month.

Mack's first game with Chicago went well -- a sack, a pick AND a TD -- and Romanowski isn't at all surprised that the Raiders are feeling some immediate remorse.

In fact ... Bill seems downright pissed over the move -- even questioning how Oakland was able to get Derek Carr's mega deal done so quickly but couldn't get one for Mack.

"For Raider nation, you got one of the best defensive players in the National Football League -- figure out a way!" Bill says.

"Hey, you got Carr signed, figure out a way to get this guy signed!"

Romo added, "Sad day for the Raiders when that went down."

Ex-Raiders Coach Jack Del Rio Pay Khalil Mack Already!

8/15/2018 6:52 AM PDT
Breaking News

The 2017 Oakland Raiders coach has some advice for the 2018 Oakland Raiders -- PAY KHALIL MACK ALREADY!!!

Jack Del Rio -- who was fired after the '17 season and replaced by Jon Gruden -- decided to weigh in on the Khalil Mack holdout ... the biggest roster news in Raiders camp right now. 

"Gotta pay the man!" Del Rio said ... "[Mack] is the total package. Great player and an even better person!"

Del Rio coached Mack for 3 seasons ('15, '16, '17) and clearly thinks the 2017 NFL Defensive Player of the Year is worth splurging for. 

Mack hasn't been at any part of Raiders' offseason workouts as he's feuding with management over a long-term deal ... and there have been talks Oakland could look to trade him.

Martavis Bryant Baby Mama Claims He's a Deadbeat Owes $80k in Child Support

8/13/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The mother of Martavis Bryant's 5-year-old daughter says the NFLer has been dodging child support payments for months ... and claims he owes her nearly $80k.

Bryant's baby mama -- Jasmin Keesley -- tells TMZ Sports the Oakland Raiders WR has only made court-ordered payments 6 times since a paternity test determined he was the father in 2015. She says she's begged Bryant to help for years ... and he's refused.

Jasmin claims Bryant -- currently in a 4-year, $2.6 mil contract -- has been successfully dodging payments because he keeps moving without reporting his new address to court officials. 

"They literally have to find him, and it takes about 4 months each time," Jasmin says. She also claims the department of social services has sent two wage withholding forms to the Raiders with no success.

We've reached out to Bryant's camp multiple times -- but so far, no official comment. 

NFL's Sean Smith To Be Released From Jail Early ... In Street Fight Case

8/6/2018 10:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-Oakland Raiders star CB Sean Smith is slated to be released from jail next month -- after serving less than half of his year-long sentence in his street fight case ... TMZ Sports has learned.

As we previously reported ... Sean got 1 year in jail and 5 years probation after pleading guilty to felony assault in a July 2017 incident where he beat the hell out of his sister's boyfriend in Old Town Pasadena. The victim suffered several major injuries in the attack. 

But now, officials have set his release date as Sept. 5 -- about half a year earlier than sentenced -- citing good behavior and overcrowding. 

Of course, Smith could screw it all up if he doesn't keep his nose clean -- but we're told if all goes smoothly, Smith will be a free man ... 1 day before the NFL season kicks off. 

The timing is a huge deal for Sean -- who signed a $40 million contract with the Raiders in 2016 but was cut later after the attack -- because it may give him a chance to make a squad this year. 

We've reached out to the NFL to find out if Smith will have to serve a suspension (he most likely will) ... or if he'll be eligible at all to play in the 2018 season.

So far, no word back from the league. 

NFL's Gareon Conley Sues Rape Accuser You Cost Me Millions and a Nike Deal

7/5/2018 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Oakland Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley is out for revenge against the woman who accused him of rape ... saying the "false" allegation caused him to fall in the NFL Draft, costing him a fortune. 

Conley -- a star player at Ohio State -- was investigated for rape after Brooke Puscian told police he sexually assaulted her in a Cleveland hotel room a few weeks before the 2017 NFL Draft. 

The case went before a grand jury -- which ultimately decided NOT to indict Conley. 

But Conley is still pissed -- and has now filed legal docs of his own claiming the "false" allegations seriously damaged his reputation, hurt his draft stock and cost him multiple endorsement deals "including a contract with Nike." 

Conley also lays out his side of the incident ... saying Puscian had aggressively tried to have sex with him during the night in question, but he turned her down and she was embarrassed. 

Conley says she lied to officials out of spite for rejecting her advances. 

In the court docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Conley says Puscian is liable for "malicious criminal prosecution" ... and he's demanding a fortune. 

Oakland Raiders Owner Hits Golden Knights Game Commitment to Vegascellence

5/31/2018 7:17 AM PDT
Breaking News

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis was sitting right up on the glass at the Vegas Golden Knights game Wednesday night ... and even though the team lost, it's probably another big win for him. 

The Raiders have been on a PR push to win over Vegas fans before the Silver and Black move into town -- they've taken out newspaper ads and put up billboards. 

But, having Davis with his face pressed against the glass (sitting next to Jim Gray) is another good look for the Raiders ... especially since he's been to a TON of Knights' regular season games. 

He's also supported other Vegas teams -- attending the WNBA's Las Vegas Aces game on Sunday night. That's commitment! 

Don't worry Bay Area teams ... Mark's been courtside cheerin' on the Warriors this season -- he just likes Vegas better now.

And you would too, if this was your future home!!

Raiders' Donald Penn Off the Hook In Domestic Violence Case

5/9/2018 10:32 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Oakland Raiders star lineman Donald Penn will NOT be charged with a crime stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We broke the story ... Penn was named a suspect in an April 29 incident when cops were called to his L.A. home to respond to a call about an altercation with his wife. 

Cops were told Penn got handsy and, at one point, he allegedly poured a drink on her head. 

Later, both Penn and his wife denied the altercation ever turned physical. 

The case was kicked over to the L.A. City Attorney's Office which ultimately decided to NOT move forward with charges against Penn. 

"The office rejected this case because of lack of corroboration and on the ground that there is no reasonable likelihood of conviction on the domestic violence matter," a spokesperson says. 

"Bottom line, lack of sufficient evidence."

Penn is one of the best linemen in the NFL -- and signed a 2-year $21 million extension in 2017.
