Smash Mouth Cusses Out Myles Garrett 'Nobody Knows Who The F You Are!'

6/14/2018 2:06 PM PDT
Breaking News

Smash Mouth -- yes, that band from "Shrek" -- has got some balls on 'em ... throwing F bombs at NFL star Myles Garrett!!!

Why, you ask? 

The band apparently took MAJOR offense to an interview Garrett gave ripping Kevin Durant ... where the Browns star said, "KD broke the league" by jumping to the Warriors to win a title. 

"You hopped onto a 73-9 team and he took the easy way out in my mind," Garrett said on 92.3 The Fan. 

He added one more shot -- "Me, I'm too competitive to try and ride on somebody's coattails to get a W."

Enter Smash Mouth -- big Golden State Warriors fans -- with expletive-laden Durant defense.

"Hey Myles Garrett,.....nobody knows who the F you are so nobody gives a F what you would do."

"And Genius the @warriors didn't win the Championship the season before KD signed. So not sure what 'coattails' you're referring to. This your Twitter page Aaaaahole?  @MylesLGarrett."

So, what now? There's only one solution -- Smash Mouth must fight Myles Garrett. 

Please.

EXCLUSIVE

Check this out ... #1, #2 and #3 all hanging together at LAX and TMZ Sports has the video!!

NY Giants rookie Saquon Barkley -- along with Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold -- all touched down at LAX for the NFLPA Rookie Premiere event ... and they all seemed pretty stoked to reunite! 

Barkley and Mayfield hugged it out ... and Saquon actually carpooled with Darnold (Jets and Giants mingling?!). 

Of course, Saquon couldn't have been nicer -- complimenting his new NY rival ... even saying he's rooting for him!

We also asked Barkley about Eric Dickerson's recent comments -- that he's hoping Barkley will NOT break his rookie rushing record, and Saquon even handled that with 100% class. 

"I don't care for that," Barkley said about breaking the record ... "I wanna win championships."

Jim Brown Is Not Happy With Baker Mayfield Pick

EXCLUSIVE

Jim Brown was REALLY pushing for his Cleveland Browns to select Saquon Barkley with the #1 overall pick ... so how did he feel when CLE took Baker Mayfield instead?

Let's just say he's not thrilled about it. 

We spotted the NFL Hall of Famer in Dallas, TX after Baker officially became the next in line for an offense that's had 28 starting quarterbacks since 1999. Obviously, we had to ask his thoughts.

Don't get it twisted ... there are a lot of Browns fans who believe Mayfield can be the guy to turn things around in Cleveland with his rocket arm and in-your-face personality. 

... just doesn't seem like the 82-year-old legend is a believer -- at least not yet.

EXCLUSIVE

Jim Brown wants Cleveland to take a RUNNING BACK with the 1st overall pick in the NFL Draft ... and he's crossing his fingers for Saquon Barkley

The Hall of Famer was out in D.C. on Tuesday -- just days before he flies out to Texas to announce the 2nd round pick for his former team. 

So, with the 1st round kicking off on Thursday night ... we had to ask for Brown's wish list. 

"I think Mr. Barkley would be a wonderful addition to the Cleveland Browns," Brown tells TMZ Sports ... "I would hope that they pick him number one."

Brown says he doesn't have any inside information on Cleveland's draft plans -- but adds, "I really like him."

As for the unsolvable puzzle in Cleveland ... quarterback ... Jim says there are 4 solid guys, but he doesn't have a clear-cut favorite. 

Stay tuned ...

Troy Aikman on Josh Rosen 'Throws As Well As Anyone I've Ever Seen'

3/23/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Troy Aikman says Josh Rosen ain't just any ol' QB prospect ... the UCLA star tosses the ball as good as anyone he's ever seen fire the pigskin on the football field.

We got Aikman in Beverly Hills after he dropped sweat at a SoulCycle class (get it, Troy!) ... and he broke down the consensus of the top 3 arms in this year's class -- Rosen, Sam Darnold and Josh Allen.

Troy had nice things to say about the whole trio ... but gave Rosen the highest compliment imaginable.

"Josh is a real talent. I watched him throw a few years ago at UCLA one summer. He can throw as well as anybody I’ve ever seen," Aikman told TMZ Sports.

Naturally, Troy says that makes Rosen worthy of the #1 pick next month -- but he ain't guaranteeing that's gonna happen.

Now, we feel like we should point out that Aikman was a UCLA Bruin just like Rosen. Take that however you want!

TMZ Sports spoke with the future Hall of Famer about the King showing love with a HUGE hug on the court before the game against the Bucks ... and J.T. says he got so emotional, he had to sneak out of eyesight to gather his emotions!!

"It was a really special moment to get love and respect from an icon like LeBron James, somebody that I've been a fan of since I was 12 years old ... it was really special." Thomas says.

J.T. also points out it was a great way to cap off his career ... 'cause he was was first introduced to Cleveland fans as a rookie when the Cavs were in the Finals in 2007.

3/17/2018 12:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LaDainian Tomlinson says Saquon Barkley is basically L.T. 2.0 -- but tells TMZ Sports that ain't enough for him to go #1 in the NFL draft.

We asked LaDainian about all the Saquon comparisons people have been making when we got the Chargers legend at LAX ... and he couldn't agree more.

"He’s a little bit bigger than I am -- but they’re awesome comparisons," L.T. said.

"The lateral movement, quickness, the power, he can catch the ball ... all that stuff."

But even with all that talent, L.T. told us there's a good reason the Browns won't take him with the first overall pick ... and he says that's GREAT news for the Giants at #2.

LaDainian also gave Saquon 1 piece of advice for his NFL career -- and we hope he takes it.

Here's a small silver lining for Cleveland fans ... no matter how embarrassing their 0-16 season was, ex-Browns star Buster Skrine says there's one team his old squad can still beat:

'BAMA!!!

TMZ Sports asked the N.Y. Jets stud whether the best college football team can beat the NFL's worst team ... and Buster says they're 2 totally different beasts in favor of the Browns.

Speaking of the Browns' winless season, Skrine hopes Jets fans NEVER plan a parade for locking the No. 1 overall pick like they did in Cleveland.

BONUS -- Skrine says he's the most fashionable guy in sports ... and he lets his boots do the talking.

EXCLUSIVE

Here's former USC quarterback Matt Leinart weighing in on current USC quarterback Sam Darnold -- keeping it all the way 100 about Sam's big decision on whether to enter the NFL Draft. 

"I don't know if you wanna go to the Browns!"

True. 

Leinart was at LAX after USC got smashed by Ohio State in the Cotton Bowl -- where he told us he's not too concerned about Sam's draft stock after the game. 

"I don't think he played as bad as people think," Leinart said ... "He'll be alright. We'll see what he does. He may come back to school, who knows?!"

Leinart famously stayed in school to play his senior season -- and ended up getting drafted 10th overall in the 2006 draft. 

He also told us if Darnold wants to pick his brain, he's down.

12/28/2017 3:18 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

UCLA QB Josh Rosen could mean to the Browns what LeBron James means to the Cavs ... if he's willing to give it 100% -- so says former UCLA football coach Rick Neuheisel.

Rick -- Bruins HC from 2008-2011 -- told us it's only a matter of time before the Browns find their Bron ... so why not Rosen??

"Someone's gonna be the hero of Cleveland -- look what LeBron James did for the Cavaliers. It's all possible. It's just going in there with the right attitude," Neuheisel told TMZ Sports.

Josh is reportedly thinking about going back to UCLA if Cleveland gets the #1 pick in the draft ... but Rick says that's not the right move for Rosen's future.

"This is your turn -- go get it done."

Johnny Manziel Still Ballin' Out In Pimped Out Rolls-Royce

12/7/2017 7:17 AM PST

No job? No problem!

Johnny Manziel is still living VERY large -- despite the fact he hasn't had an NFL paycheck in a very long time. 

The embattled QB pulled up Wednesday to Barneys in Beverly Hills -- one of the most expensive stores in town -- in the driver's seat of a custom Rolls-Royce. 

Later that night, he hit up Warwick in a Givenchy sweatshirt, which retails for more than $1,000. 

He's also planning a wedding, renting expensive places to live and traveling. So, the question is ... how can he still afford to live so lavishly? 

The answer? Manziel is said to have raked in about $7.8 mil from his rookie deal with the Cleveland Browns -- plus, he made a ton of cash from endorsement deals with companies like Nike and Snickers. 

Plus, the family reportedly has oil money -- though it's unclear if Manziel has access to it. 

Either way ... he doesn't seem worried.

We spoke with N.Y. Jets star Buster Skrine -- he played with Gordon on the Browns -- who says he's pulling for his old friend to put his past behind him and ball out on the field. 

"I asked him to come to New York (this summer), he was down in Florida training. He was like, 'Man, I'm focused. Blase, blase,' so I knew it was a complete turnaround for him," Skrine says. 

And get this -- Skrine was out donating 250 turkeys and 200 pounds of veggies for Thanksgiving with his foundation when we ran into him.

Good work, Buster.
