LaDainian Tomlinson Cool With Dak's Anthem Stance ... On One Condition

8/15/2018 1:24 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LaDainian Tomlinson tells TMZ Sports he has no problems with Dak Prescott's national anthem opinions -- ONLY IF they're actually his.

Remember ... the Cowboys star backed Jerry Jones just days after the team owner insinuated he'd cut players for kneeling during the anthem.

When we got L.T. out at LAX ... he told us the criticism Dak received for that stance was BS ... but only if that's what the star QB truly believed.

"Dak has to be his own man," the NFL legend says. "Hopefully he's not influenced by ownership or anybody else. He has to be his own man."

Bottom line ... L.T. says players are gonna get flak for their opinions on protests regardless -- so Dak shouldn't even have to think about being a pawn for Jerry.

"You really gotta stand up for what you believe in at the end of the day," L.T. says.

Jerry Jones is praising the hell out of his QB, Dak Prescott, for the way he's handling the drama surrounding the national anthem controversy ... telling TMZ Sports, "I'm so proud of him."

Jerry was leaving Mr Chow in Beverly Hills on Wednesday night when we asked if he expected Dak to get a lot of blowback for supporting Jerry's "My players will stand" position on the anthem. 

"I'm so proud of him, just proud of him the way he leads the team ... for not letting it mess with their practices."

We also asked JJ how he felt about Ice Cube standing up for Dak's right to voice his opinion -- and Jerry showed love for Cube as well ... saying, "I'm a fan of Ice Cube!"

By the way, we also caught a glimpse of the inside of Jerry's sprinter van -- and it's awesome!!!!

Ezekiel Elliott is being sued for $1 MILLION by the man who Zeke barreled into with his SUV last year.

According to court docs ... the Cowboys superstar was driving his GMC Yukon in Collin County, Texas, in January 2017 -- when he ran a red light and smashed into Ronnie Hill's BMW sedan.

The accident was described as "minor" by the Frisco PD and cops noted no injuries were sustained.

But now ... Hill is claiming he does in fact have injuries from the crash -- including "serious, life-altering" ones -- and is seeking over $1 mil in damages from Elliott.

Zeke's agent, Frank Salzano, tells TMZ Sports Elliott's inclusion in the lawsuit is only a formality ... and will all ultimately end up being handled by Zeke's insurance company.

"We expect Mr. Elliott's insurance provider to step in accordingly and handle the matter appropriately."

Dak Prescott Backs Jerry Jones' Anthem Policy It Ain't The Time To Protest!

Breaking News

Jerry Jones' biggest star is going to bat for the Dallas Cowboys owner and his new hardline stance on the national anthem kneeling ... with Dak Prescott saying the anthem ain't the time or place to protest.

The QB addressed reporters at Cowboys camp Friday and said he's fine with Jerry's new rule that forces players to stand ... 'cause it's something he's always believed in himself.

"I never protest during the anthem and I don’t think that’s the time or venue to do so," Dak said.

"The game of football has always brought me such at peace and I think it does the same for a lot of people playing the game, watching the game and a lot of people that have any impact of the game."

"So, when you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game … it takes away. It takes away from the joy and to the love that football brings a lot of people."

Don't get it twisted ... Dak says he's all for fighting the battle against social injustices in America -- he's just ready to take a different step than kneeling during the anthem.

BTW ... the NFL is still working on a league-wide policy -- releasing a joint statement with the players association that said they're continuing discussions on a new rule after a "constructive meeting" Friday.

Donald Trump Applauds Cowboys' Anthem Policy ... Way To Go Jerry Jones!

Breaking News

Jerry Jones officially laid the hammer down on the Cowboys' national anthem stance Thursday ... telling reporters, "Our policy is that you stand at the anthem, toe on the line."

Guess who was thrilled to hear that??

"Way to go Jerry," Donald Trump tweeted early Friday morning ... "This is what the league should do!"

The Cowboys owner wasn't the only one going bold on the issue this week ... with Jerry's son and Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones implying the Cowboys could CUT players if they don't follow the orders.

"When you're wearing the Dallas Cowboy uniform and a Dallas Cowboy helmet and you're working for the Dallas Cowboys, you check the 'I' and the 'me' at the door, and you're a part of a team," Stephen says.

The NFL has still yet to put pen to paper on a league-wide anthem policy after uproar over their initial one caused severe backlash ... but, one thing's for sure -- we know POTUS likes what he's hearing out of Dallas.

Wanna piss off an NFL player?? Tell him his new Madden ratings.

Wanna REALLLLLY make an NFL player upset?? Make his avatar look like a fat tub of lard.

The creators of Madden 19 did both to Dallas Cowboys stud Tyrone Crawford ... and the results of T.C.'s ensuing rage were hilarious.

"YO @EAMaddenNFL we need to have a talk," Tyrone posted on social media. "This is unacceptable. Forget my stats. What’s up with the photo? Who on your staff felt it ok to make my body look like humpty-dumpty? I DEMAND A REVIEW!"

The Cowboys' D-lineman IS 290 pounds ... but he makes it look svelte in real life -- something Madden developers clearly overlooked.

BUT ... there might be a happy ending here! Madden's official Twitter account just responded to Crawford -- saying their play on this matter is officially "UNDER REVIEW."

Good luck on the challenge, Tyrone!

Allen Hurns Selling Off Jacksonville Mansion ... After Jaguars Cut

7/7/2018 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Allen Hurns is unloading his Jacksonville pad after the Jaguars kicked him to the curb this offseason ... putting his Florida creekside mansion up for sale for $1.3 MILLION ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The new Dallas Cowboys wideout bought the place back in August 2016 a few weeks after inking a 4-year, $40 million deal with the Jags ... but, Jacksonville cut him this past March -- so his loss can now be your gain!

The place is fancy ... with Jim Pittman of Pittman Real Estate Team tellin' us it's got five bedrooms, four bathrooms (plus two half baths), 5,805 square feet -- and a huge covered pool in the backyard.

It's also got its own dock leading to the creek in the yard ... but no word yet if the two jet skis parked there come with the crib.

Don't feel bad for Hurns for having to cut ties with the spot ... he signed a 2-year, $12 million deal with the Cowboys ... AND he could theoretically make $200k on the mansion if he gets his asking price.

Some guys have all the luck.

Ex-Cowboys RB Joseph Randle Punished For Car vs. People Attack

Breaking News

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been sentenced to probation for striking people with his car at a party in 2016 ... and will finally be released from jail. 

The 26-year-old has been bouncing between jail and mental health facilities ever since the incident -- but, last week, the court declared him mentally competent to receive his punishment. 

As we previously reported, Randle was found guilty of aggravated battery, criminal threats and aggravated burglary after prosecutors say he ran over partygoers after getting kicked out of a party following a loss at a beer pong game

Randle appeared in a Kansas courtroom early Friday morning where he was sentenced to a 5-year probation and $3,000 in fines. 

The judge will also consider cutting 2 years off the probation sentence if Randle keeps his nose clean. 

It's a good result for him -- considering Randle was facing up to 10 years in prison. 

Randle -- who was arrested 6 times in 17 months -- still has serious legal problems on his plate. There are still 4 criminal cases pending and he's back in court on July 2.

"I have already shared this information with the Hall. After visiting Canton earlier this year, I came to the realization that I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere. At a later date, I will announce where and when I will celebrate my induction."

"I would also like to thank the San Francisco 49ers, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys, the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals for the time I was granted with each organization. I am thankful for the relationships forged and the lessons learned while part of each team."

Dallas Cowboys Coaches Cussed & Argued ... Over Anthem Protest

5/16/2018 2:32 PM PDT

Dallas Cowboys coaches had a heated meeting about the team's decision to take a knee as a team last season with one coach saying, "Who gives a f**k what the President says."

It's all part of a docuseries featuring the Cowboys called "All or Nothing," which featured a look inside a real team conversation surrounding the anthem protest. 

Before the Sept. 25 game against the Cardinals -- days after President Trump made inflammatory comments about players kneeling for the anthem -- Jerry Jones told the team he wanted everyone to take a knee in unity before the song. But he made it clear, when the music plays, "I want you to stand."

"I want us to, in front of God and everybody, walk out there together, all of us, and kneel down in the name of unity."

Jones goes on to say ... "Then they’re gonna play the National Anthem. And I do want you to stand with me. I do want you to stand."

After the game, head coach Jason Garrett talked to his coaching staff about the team's show of unity ... and it got intense.

O-line coach Frank Pollack says ... "What happened to blocking out the f*cking noise? Who gives a f*ck what the President says?"

"Let’s get our focus on what we’re trying to do. All this is doing is distracting us from what we’re trying to f*cking accomplish."

Aside from being a look inside how a team handled the controversy ... it's possible the footage could be used in Colin Kaepernick's collusion case against the NFL ... to illustrate the Cowboys' feelings towards the anthem protests.
