Julian Edelman Used Beard Clippings Pass $2,000 ... In Charity Auction

2/18/2019 10:18 AM PST
Breaking News

Would you pay more than $2,000 for Julian Edelman's discarded beard shavings?!? 

That's the going rate for the NFL star's recently shorn facial follicles -- which Ellen DeGeneres famously shaved off earlier this month after the Patriots won the Super Bowl. 

Ellen collected the trimmings off the floor of her show and donated them to CharityBuzz -- which is now hosting an online auction with the proceeds benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston

The opening bid was $1,000 ... but that was quickly surpassed and as of the time of this post, the leading bidder has offered up $2,100!!!!!

Think it's gross to buy someone's used beard?? Maybe ... but Edelman's face fuzz was a piece of Patriots history

The WR rocked the scruff during his Super Bowl MVP performance in New England's SIXTH Lombardi Trophy-winning game.

Besides the cash raised from the auction, both Julian and Ellen donated $10,000 each to the Boys & Girls Clubs ... so, props to them!!!

The bigger issue ... what does the winning bidder do with the beard? Display them? Throw them away? Clone Edelman? 

It's super weird, right? 

Charles Barkley Gushes Over Tom Brady's Angelic Face ... New Man Crush?

2/13/2019 8:15 AM PST
Breaking News

Add another victim to the list of people smitten by Tom Brady's gorgeous eyes and granite cheekbones, because it's pretty obvious Charles Barkley has a man crush on the G.O.A.T.

Barkley was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Tuesday when his friendship with Patriots coach Bill Belichick became a topic of conversation.

Apparently, the two men have been friends for years, so much so that Chuck was invited to a Pats practice during Super Bowl week. That's when it happened ... he looked Tom Brady in the eyes.

"I said, 'Damn, you're a pretty man.' That's what I was thinking to myself. I got so embarrassed I started turning my head to talk to him."

BTW -- Barkley offered this up COMPLETELY UNPROMPTED ... which tells you just how much of an impression God's perfect creation made on him.

Don't worry Chuck ... we felt it too.

Bill Belichick Boat Gets Makeover ... 'VIII Rings' Baby!!!

2/11/2019 2:46 PM PST
Breaking News

Everything associated with the New England Patriots is getting another Super Bowl ring ... including Bill Belichick's famous boat!!!

ICYMI ... Bill's owned a little fishing vessel for years -- and it's always been named after the number of Super Bowl rings he's accumulated.

So ... yeah, the thing's undergone new paint jobs A LOT.

It didn't take long for Bill to update it once again after the Pats' win over the Rams ... 'cause 8 days after SB53, it was spotted on the docks with a new name -- "VIII Rings"!!!

Of course, Bill won two Super Bowls with the Giants as an assistant under Bill Parcells in 1987 and 1991 ... and he's now got SIX as head man of the Pats.

BTW ... The Hoody definitely knows how to get down on a boat ... remember when he took this epic nap on the water with his smokin' hot GF in 2017??

The Pats just don't lose!

Patriots' Patrick Chung Shows Off Gnarly Super Bowl Scar ... 23 Stitches!!!

2/11/2019 1:44 PM PST
Breaking News

A Super Bowl ring didn't come cheap for Patrick Chung ... the Pats DB broke his arm in the big game -- and needed surgery AND 23 stitches to fix it!!!

The New England stud got his forearm caught in between a teammate and Todd Gurley's back early in the third quarter of the Pats' win over the Rams ... and his arm broke in half.

It looked gnarly ... his arm wiggled like Jell-O when he fell off the pile -- but, the guy said last Friday that the surgery was a success.

And, on Monday ... Chung revealed the aftermath of going under the knife -- and it wasn't pretty.

Dude's got a scar that runs from his wrist to his elbow ... and says it's held together by 23 stitches!!!

Good news for Patrick ... he's expected to make a full recovery this offseason -- just in time to make a run at the Patriots' SEVENTH Super Bowl title!!!

Darrelle Revis Sam Darnold Can Win Super Bowl ... 'In The Near Future'

2/10/2019 12:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sam Darnold not only can win a Super Bowl for the Jets ... he can do it VERY soon -- so says NFL legend Darrelle Revis, who tells TMZ Sports, "I think he's the future of the Jets."

We got the future Hall of Famer out at the Super Bowl this past weekend ... and we had to get his take on his ex-team's young signal-caller.

That's when Revis told us he's so impressed by what he's seen from Darnold so far ... he thinks Sam can lead the Jets to a ring within the next couple seasons!!!

"I think he has a ton of potential. I think he's the future of the Jets ... I think he can bring a Super Bowl in the near future for the Jets."

Of course ... Darnold and NY have a long way to go to get to that mountain top -- they just went 4-12 and fired their head coach.

Oh ... and Darnold posted a 77.6 quarterback rating with a 17-15 TD-INT ratio.

But, Revis ain't concerned, saying, "It's going to take some time, but I feel like he's capable of doing it."

2019 season starts in September ... and there are two games with the Patriots waiting on the schedule -- but, good luck!!!

Tom Brady Diamond Chain Gift ... From Pats Teammate

2/7/2019 1:39 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Cordarrelle Patterson is so grateful Tom Brady got him a Super Bowl ring -- he got the QB a thank-you gift ... a diamond TB12 chain!!! 

Patterson just joined the Patriots this season after spending some tough years with the Minnesota Vikings and the Oakland Raiders. 

So, when Brady took Patterson to the promised land ... the WR/RB went straight to his favorite bling beast, Al the Jeweler, to whip up a custom "TB12" chain for his QB.

We're told the piece is made with hundreds of diamonds and set Patterson back thousands of dollars. But don't freak, dude's in the middle of an $8.5 million contract.

Brady thanked Patterson for the kind gesture on Instagram Thursday morning ... saying his daughter, Vivian, already loves it!!!

Al's huge among NFLers -- he's made sick pieces for superstars like Stefon Diggs, Jarvis Landry and a bunch more. Now, he can add TB12 (who is rarely spotted wearin' ice) to his list!!!

It's good to be a 6-time Super Bowl Champ!!! And, possibly, the greatest football player to ever live.

As for Patterson ... teammate of the year!?!?

Tom Brady I'm Not Talking Trump ... 'Next Question'

2/7/2019 10:50 AM PST
Breaking News

Tom Brady's not giving up any clues as to whether he'll visit President Trump at the White House with his teammates ... not any verbal clues, anyway.

A reporter from NBC asked Brady point blank Thursday morning if he plans to go to DC. Tom paused, looked at the crowd gathered at a Gillette event and simply said, "Next question."

So, if Tommy Terrific isn't gonna say anything ... his body language might have. He definitely seemed frustrated by the reporter's question -- even though he had to know it was coming. 

Remember, Tom passed on the White House visit back in 2017 after he and Trump -- who were previously famous buddies -- had a falling out. 

Back then, Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen, was very vocal about her dislike of Trump and his policies. Brady even admitted after the 2016 election that Gisele had put the kibosh on his politics talk.

Although Brady didn't answer today ... sources tell us Gisele's position, if anything, has hardened against Trump since 2017.

We think you just saw the end result of that position -- Tommy ain't talking.

Patriots BORING? NO WAY! Team Rages While Rewatching Super Bowl

2/6/2019 7:11 AM PST
Breaking News

Here's 53 people who definitely don't think Super Bowl LIII was boring -- the New England Patriots players who rewatched the game Tuesday night while partying at a Boston nightclub. 

Fresh off the debaucherous, shirtless, booze-filled parade earlier in the day ... Gronk and the Pats hit up Bijou nightclub to keep the party going. 

There were sparklers and ring cutouts, Meek Mill and Rick Ross songs blarin' ... and good ole SB53 rollin' on the TVs. Always fun to watch the Rams crap the bed, right? 

Other players at the shindig included Jeremy Hill, Elandon Roberts and Brandon King.

No sign of Tom Brady ... but let's be real, he's 41 years old and probably pooped. He gets a pass. 

Congrats to the champs ... something tells us these dudes ain't slowing down anytime soon.

Todd Gurley Healthy Enough to Hit L.A. Nightclub ... After Super Bowl Loss

2/6/2019 5:52 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

If Todd Gurley REALLY is hiding a secret injury -- you couldn't tell by the way he was cruising out of a hot L.A. nightclub early Wednesday morning. 

The L.A. Rams superstar seemed to be in a good mood on his way out of 1 OAK on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood just after 2 AM ... strutting to a waiting SUV without the slightest appearance of a limp. 

And, with all sorts of conspiracy theories surrounding Todd -- we asked the running back straight-up if he was hiding an injury in the NFL postseason. 

Just on Tuesday, "Inside the NFL" star James Brown suggested there was more going on behind the scenes than we know ... but Gurley wasn't in the mood to go down that road. 

Of course, Gurley was KILLIN' IT during the regular season and was making a real push to be the NFL's MVP -- but he tailed off in the playoffs and was a non-factor in the Super Bowl ... leaving many asking, "What's wrong with Todd?"

After the game, Gurley insisted he's not hurt -- and coach Sean McVay said the same thing -- but not everyone is buying their story. 

Meantime, Gurley doesn't seem bothered one bit ... 

Super Bowl Gronk Chugs Beers, Ditches Shirt ... at Patriots Parade

2/5/2019 7:56 AM PST

Wine was chugged (Gronk). Shirts were ripped off (also Gronk). Tide Pods were thrown (who do you think?). 

It's the New England Patriots Super Bowl parade in Boston -- and more than 1 MILLION people reportedly flocked to the streets to watch the champs roll through!!

Tom Brady talked about the event on 'WEEI' early Tuesday morning -- saying this should be the craziest bash yet ... his 6th Super Bowl parade in his insane Hall of Fame career. 

Brady and Julian Edelman have already been partying it up in Disney World ... and Rick Ross raged with some of the players on Monday night. But, the REAL party goes down with the fans.

Team owner Robert Kraft rocked Meek Mill's "Championships" chain for the parade ... and we're starting to think he ain't giving it back.

Gronk lost his shirt about halfway through the festivities ... and even grabbed a police vest for a quick wardrobe change. Center David Andrews followed by goin' shirtless as well.

If this parade seemed a bit more "tame" this time around ... it's probably because Boston Mayor Marty Walsh asked partygoers to NOT throw beers at the duck boats to keep the dudes safe, right, Alex Cora???

The parade wasn't completely incident-free, though ... some Pats fans ended up duking it out in the streets!!

It's the second title parade for Beantown in the past few months ... they JUST had one for the Red Sox in October ... and something tells us this probably won't be the last.

Rick Ross Pop That Super Bowl Bubbly!!! ... Rages with Patriots

2/5/2019 7:22 AM PST
Breaking News

Win the Super Bowl ... party like a BAWSE!!

While Tom Brady and Julian Edelman are havin' lightsaber fights at Disney World ... their teammates got the VIP treatment at a Boston hot spot ... complete with an appearance by Rick Ross!!

Fresh off their 6th Super Bowl title in 18 years, the Pats jetted back to Boston and partied it up at The Grand.

Of course, Rozay LOVES the Pats -- he was at the center of Gronk's dance-off with Robert Kraft back in 2015 ... and the rap star says he "puked his guts out" partying with Gronk when N.E. won in 2017

R.R. kept the tradition alive on Monday ... linking up with players like Trey Flowers and Ja’Whaun Bentley for the rager ... complete with a bunch of champagne and big cardboard cutouts of Bill Belichick's face!!

The guys loved every second of it ... keeping the party going all the way up to the parade on Tuesday.

Partying with Rick Ross ... that's the Patriot Way.

Todd Gurley Something Fishy About Playoff Slump ... Says James Brown

2/5/2019 6:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH TODD GURLEY!??! 

It's the question everyone wants to know after he essentially disappeared from relevance in the NFC title game and the Super Bowl ... and even NFL insider James Brown says something's not right. 

The L.A. Rams running back was basically unstoppable during the regular season -- and made a legit case to be the league MVP. 

But, he faded quickly during the NFC title game and barely played in the Super Bowl ... despite the fact both he and coach Sean McVay insisted he was NOT restricted by any sort of injury. 

So, what's REALLY going on with Gurley? 

"I don't think we know the full story as far as Todd Gurley is concerned," the "Inside the NFL" host told us ... "There's a lot more to that."

Brown continued ... "Sean McVay and the coaching staff understand everything that he can do and to the degree that he was an MVP candidate throughout most of the season, and he didn't get played that much during this stretch here. There's more to the story."

After the Super Bowl, some people expected Gurley to drop the bombshell that he was suffering from an injury that he was trying to play through ... but that wasn't the case. 

Gurley told the media, "I felt good ... whenever my name is called to get in, I'm ready."

McVay also reiterated he was healthy enough to go. 

Whatever the case may be, one thing's for sure -- we ALL hope Gurley can return to form in 2019. 

Taboo to Adam Levine Welcome to the Club ... Haters Always Come for Halftime Show

2/5/2019 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Black Eyed Peas rapper, Taboo, says Adam Levine & Co. aren't special because everyone who does the Super Bowl halftime show gets destroyed ... so there's no need to hang their heads.

We got Taboo at LAX Monday -- as he returned from ATL -- and he dropped some knowledge about playing at the big game. He calls it an unwinnable situation for ANY artist. Remember, BEP performed 8 years ago at Super Bowl XLV ... so, he speaks from experience. 

Taboo says he and his bandmates got eviscerated for, what some critics called, an uninspired performance with a lot of shouting into mics and not enough dancing. TBH, it was a lot of the same criticisms Maroon 5 is now getting. 

On top of their music getting picked apart ... Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi had all the added flak from Colin Kaepernick supporters -- not to mention the memes about Adam's tattoos and wardrobe.

So, where IS the love? Not at LAX! Watch the clip to the end to see some edgy travelers giving Taboo the business.
