9/6/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Listen up, Dez Bryant ... Terrell Owens -- the king of quarterback relationships -- has advice for you ... GET FRIENDLY WITH DAK PRESCOTT ... saying the new QB could be his new meal ticket.

We got Terrell out in Manhattan Beach and talked with him about the state of things in Big D ... where Tony Romo is out ... and a new young gunslinger is in.

That's when T.O. dropped NFL knowledge ... telling our camera girl if Dez knew what was good for him ... he'd focus on building his chemistry with Prescott ... 'cause Romo might be done for good.

Listen to the man, Dez ... he knows Romo ... remember, that's his quarterback.


Dak Prescott's H.S. Coach No Romo? No Problem! He's Always Game Ready

8/31/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0830_Dak-Prescott_cowboys_gettyChill out, Cowboys fans ... 'cause rookie backup QB Dak Prescott will have NO PROBLEM filling in for injured star Tony Romo, despite his inexperience ... his old H.S. coach says.

TMZ Sports spoke with Rodney Guin -- Prescott's football coach at Haughton High in Louisiana -- who says the rest of the world might be shocked by D.P.'s play ... but he ain't.

FYI -- Prescott's played at a RIDICULOUS level through the first 3 preseason games ... racking up 7 TDs (5 passing, 2 rushing) and 0 INTs on more than 500 total yards.  

“Dak always prided himself in being ready to play," Guin told us. "He was the most prepared guy on the team ... he was a leader in practice, he earned the respect of all the older players and I can see him doing that on a professional level."

“I’m not really surprised by his great start. I always knew he would be successful, but it is impressive to see him play so well so early.”

In other words, maybe all hope isn't lost for Cowboys fans ...

Breaking News

Ezekiel Elliott says he didn't think he was doing anything wrong by visiting a recreational weed shop in Seattle before the Seahawks game last week ... but says it was ultimately a "bad decision."

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the 21-year-old rookie running back hit up Herban Legends -- which LEGALLY sells weed for recreational purposes to people 21 and older. 

"It was a bad decision," Elliott said (via Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram) ... "Just seen it walking around. Was curious."

"I didn't really think about it before I went in, what the repercussions could have been. It wasn't like I was trying to hide it or anything."

"I took pictures with people. It wasn't like I was up to no good."

0825_ezekiel-elliot_weed-shop_sports_wmAs we reported, Elliott did not purchase anything or smoke anything while inside the shop. 

Still, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was pissed -- calling the visit "not good."

Elliott says he apologized to Cowboys management -- and claims he's learned a valuable lesson.

"You definitely got to think of the perception of things before you actually do certain things ... It may not seem like it's a big deal to you yourself but there is a bigger picture."

Jerry Jones Ezekiel's Pot Shop Visit ... 'Not Good'

0825-jerry-jones-ezekiel-elliott-TMZ-01Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he ain't happy with his running back Ezekiel Elliott -- saying his decision to visit a Seattle weed store before the Seahawks game is "not good."

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the 21-year-old rookie visited the Herban Legends recreational weed dispensary -- which is fully LEGAL in the Seattle area. 

Our sources say Elliott did NOT buy or smoke anything in the store -- but the fact he was there didn't sit well with his boss. 

"Well, I think that in and of itself the reason we are talking about it is in a way part of the learning process," Jones said about the pics to the Star-Telegram after Thursday night's game. 

"But it's not good. It's just not good. It's just not good."

Despite the visit, Elliott played pretty well during the game -- racking up 48 yards on 7 carries ... with some pretty bullish runs. 

Still, Jones says, there's a lesson Elliott needs to learn. 

"No matter if you played at whatever level there is a picture here of interest. So again, I’m aware of it. I heard the report and I would know how he is. And he needs to look at that and the other thing is it’s just not good. I don’t want to say anymore. I do want us do things that in general while it may not be wrong it’s just not good."


Ezekiel Elliott Marijuana Tourist ... During Seattle Road Trip

8/25/2016 3:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

When in Seattle ... check out the LEGAL recreational weed shops -- that's what Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott did before preparing to play the Seahawks. 

The 21-year-old rookie hit up the Herban Legends weed shop in Belltown -- a 5 minute drive from the Space Needle -- where he checked out some of the merchandise Thursday afternoon.

For the record ... our sources tell us they did NOT see Elliott make any sort of a purchase -- and we're told it's VERY common for tourists to just browse the weed shops while visiting town. 

0825_ezekiel-elliot_weed-shop_sports_wmElliott didn't seem like he was hiding or embarrassed to be there -- and even posed for pics with fans outside the shop. 

Despite the fact it's legal in Seattle, weed is still outlawed in the NFL -- and players who test positive for marijuana could be suspended. 

We reached out to the Cowboys for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Dallas Cowboys 'No Chance' We Sign Manziel ... He's Too Messed Up

Breaking News

0811-manziel-gettyThe Dallas Cowboys are making it clear ... they will NOT sign Johnny Manziel to backup Tony Romo this year, no matter how desperate they get. 

Johnny claims he's laser-focused on an NFL comeback -- and recently told TMZ Sports he wants to play for the Cowboys. 

But Cowboys Executive Vice President Stephen Jones -- Jerry's son -- called into the Tiki and Tierney Show on CBS Radio and said there's "no chance" they make a move for Johnny. 

"Obviously Johnny needs to get his hands around his life," Jones said.

"He needs to do the things that make him a good person off the field, I think, before he can ever have any chance of being successful in our league."

"He's a guy obviously from Texas that we've all followed and had an amazing career there at A&M. Unfortunately, he has some things that are holding him back not only as a football player, but as a person in life."

"I hope he is able to get his hands around his life, and at some point if he does, I'm sure he'll get another chance. But at the moment, it certainly won't be in Dallas."

Dallas Cowboy Orlando Scandrick Picks Off L.A. Mansion ... For $2.8 Mil

8/12/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0811_-Orlando-Scandrick-and-Draya-Michelle-house_launchDallas Cowboys star Orlando Scandrick just got himself a sick new L.A. crib ... for his kid's crib ... locking down a 5 bedroom monster for a cool $2.8 mil.

The place is huge ... 6,300 square feet with 7 bathrooms, a saltwater pool and spa and a basketball court. It's located in a private gated community in Tarzana ... about 40 miles from Dallas Cowboys training camp in Oxnard.

We're guessing Scandrick upgraded to accommodate his growing family -- his longtime girlfriend, Draya Michele, had a baby boy back in April. We're told the deal closed this week with the help of Rodeo Realty's Tony Truisi.

Scandrick is still trying to unload his other home ... located deeper in the valley ... and that's on the market for $1.795 mil.

Good luck!

Dallas Police Org. To NFL Upset Over Rejected Decals 'It Hurts You Don't Support Us'

8/11/2016 11:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0811_dallas_cowboys_dallas_fallen_soldiers_twitterA Dallas police organization says the NFL should reconsider rejecting the Cowboys' request to honor fallen cops with a helmet decal this season ... telling TMZ Sports "We are extremely upset by their decision."

We spoke to Sergeant Demetrick Pennie, president of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation, who tells us the league should use its platform to support their cause.

"The NFL had an opportunity to be leaders and advocates for change in law enforcement," Pennie says.

"These teams and players have a spotlight on them and could have helped bring awareness. If a uniform policy is keeping them from this, then why don’t they have every team wear the decals?" 

Pennie says he appreciates the Cowboys' attempt, saying "they understand the sacrifices these officers made and we're happy they wanted to honor these heroes.”

"These are our friends and our loved ones ... it hurts to not have the NFL fully support us."

Blake Shelton Hey Dallas Cowboys ... CALL TEBOW!!!

8/5/2016 6:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With the Dallas Cowboys thin at QB ... Blake Shelton has some advice for Jerry Jones -- CALL TIM TEBOW!!!!

We got the country superstar and avid football fan out in NYC Thursday and asked which QB America's Team should sign to back up Tony Romo now that his backup, Kellen Moore, has a broken leg. 

Shelton's been campaigning for Tebow for a while -- claiming the guy deserves to be in the NFL more than other QBs ... especially since he WON a playoff game! 

Think Jerry'll listen? 

NFL Legend Dan Reeves Manziel to the Cowboys?? 'I'd Love to See That!!'

8/1/2016 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0801_johnny-manziel-tmz-dan-reeves_gettyJohnny Manziel's dream of playing for the Dallas Cowboys just got a huge endorsement from NFL legend Dan Reeves, who tells TMZ Sports "I’d love to see him get that opportunity."

Reeves -- who made a record 9 Super Bowl appearances as a player and coach -- says the troubled QB deserves another shot in the league, as long as he's focused on football.

“No question, I think he would be good for anybody," Reeves tells TMZ Sports. "He’s still gotta learn to walk the walk and talk the talk ... but if he can play like he did in college, I don’t see how that would be a bad addition to the team.”

"He needs to get his life in order before he thinks about football and he’s had a lot of things going on that have taken his mind from the game ... but if he puts all that behind him and has someone to mentor him, I’d love to see him get that chance."

Ezekiel Elliott Accused of Domestic Violence ... Denies Attacking Ex-GF (Update)

7/22/2016 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



12:19 PM PT -- Ezekiel's father, Stacy Elliott, has issued a statement proclaiming his son's innocence.

"The reported allegations and Internet postings regarding our son are completely false. Ezekiel has done nothing wrong."

"The police have investigated this matter and eyewitnesses have verified the lack of any wrongdoing. The actual evidence in this matter clearly indicates what the real motivation was behind the police being called."

"We are confident that when the truth comes to light it will reveal the falsity of these claims. Ezekiel has been fully cooperative with the police and will continue to do so -- along with cooperating with the NFL -- moving forward."


Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been named a suspect in a domestic violence police report obtained by TMZ Sports ... but the 21-year-old has DENIED any wrongdoing and was NOT arrested. 

The female accuser filed a report with the Columbus PD in Ohio Friday morning ... saying she was assaulted by Elliott -- who she claims is her former live-in boyfriend -- while sitting in the driver's seat of her parked vehicle.

The officers who responded to the scene say the woman claims she had pain in her wrist and a red mark -- but declined medical treatment.

Cops contacted Elliott -- who denied striking the woman. He also said he never lived with her. 

In the report, cops list the accuser as a 20-year-old woman -- 5'5", 120 lbs. Elliott is listed at 6'0", 225 lbs.

According to the report, cops also spoke with 4 witnesses -- but they all told cops they didn't see an assault. One of the witnesses was in the car at the time of the alleged incident. 

Due to the conflicting reports, Elliott was NOT arrested -- but the accuser was referred to the prosecutor's office ... if she wants to try to press charges. 

We reached out to Elliott's camp -- one person in his agent's office told us, "I can assure you [the allegations] are not true."
