Greg Hardy Can Still Be Saved ... Says Ex-Cowboys Star (and Ex-Convict)

1/10/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Greg Hardy's days with the Cowboys might be numbered, but a former Dallas star -- who recently got out of prison himself -- thinks he can put the controversial player back on the path to success.

Eugene Lockhart -- a star linebacker for the 'Boys from 1984 to 1990 -- served 3 years in the federal pen for taking out fraudulent loans in the early 2000s. Lockhart got out last summer, and says he sees a lot of himself in Hardy.

Lockhart says he now realizes how immature he was as a young player -- "Staying out late, the alcohol, drugs just not living the right way we took a lot for granted and when we see guys like [Hardy] it starts reminding you of yourself. There is no doubt, he needs a mentor.”

Since getting out, Lockhart says he's studied seminary at Southern Bible Institute and he ministers people in his community now. He wants to add Hardy to his flock ... "My son talks to him a lot and has been asking me to mentor him so I will be really interested to do it”.

Although Eugene never had domestic violence issues, he thinks he can make Hardy realize he's pissing away his talent. He plans to reach out to Hardy this weekend ... even as Cowboys brass start debating whether to re-sign him.

Cowboys Legend 'Moose' Johnston Johnny Manziel & Dallas... Not A Good Fit!!

1/6/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0105-johnston-manziel-getty-tmz-02Three-time Super Bowl champ Daryl "Moose" Johnston wants Johnny Manziel far, far away from big D, because he's way too immature to handle the pressure of playing for America's team.

TMZ Sports talked to the ex-Cowboy about rumors Dallas could be Johnny Football's next stop if the Browns cut bait -- and right now Johnston thinks the "risk far outweighs the reward with Johnny. He would be a huge distraction."

He also said, "If he's having trouble away from the field in Cleveland then he would really struggle in Dallas ... the spotlight is so much bigger."

Of course, Jerry Jones has talked about how close he came to drafting Johnny, and according to several reports ... Texas native Manziel WANTS to be a Cowboy.

While Tony Romo will be back as the starter ... the 'Boys do need a decent backup (Romo's got a history). So, what about another QB looking for a fresh start ... RG III?

Johnston said Griffin wouldn't be the best option -- based purely on style of play -- but still thinks he's "a much better fit than Manziel."

The video went viral over the weekend ... showing a security guard trying to detain a man in a Panthers jersey who was reported as "disruptive."

The security guard eventually puts the man into a tight headlock ... and several concerned fans jumped in trying to loosen his grip.

Ray Rice Listen Up, Greg Hardy ... Here's What I Can Teach You

11/19/2015 9:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Dallas Cowboys star and alleged domestic abuser Greg Hardy still has a lot to learn, and Ray Rice believes he's the right man to teach him.

Rice was on WFAN's "Boomer & Carton" Thursday morning and they asked if it bothered him that guys like Hardy and Adrian Peterson are getting 2nd chances while he's still waiting to get his shot.

Rice talked about using his off time to improve himself as a person, and suggested Hardy needs to do the same. Critics have said Hardy was unfairly cut a break after allegedly beating the hell out of his then girlfriend ... and Rice thinks he can counsel him -- "I would tell him everything that transpired in my life so he can understand the severity of domestic violence."

Give it a listen ... it's interesting. You'd think Rice would be angry about not getting a 2nd chance, but instead he sounded more like a sage adviser.

Michael Irvin's got a message for Dallas Cowboys fans -- you should ALL be kissing the ground Tony Romo walks on ... and never complain about him again.

The Playmaker was at LAX when he went on a rant about Cowboys nation's need to realize how good they have it when Tony's on the field. He's returning to the field this weekend after suffering a broken collar bone early in the season, and Mike thinks he could get the 2-7 'boys back in the playoff hunt.

Check out his passionate plea -- it might make a Cowboys fan think twice about bringing up Tony's past failures.

But probably not.

EXCLUSIVE

Here it is ... the long awaited footage of ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle STEALING UNDERWEAR from a Texas department store ... and it's clear, he's no Danny Ocean. 

TMZ Sports obtained the surveillance footage showing Randle scouting out the men's department at Dillard's in Frisco, TX back in October 2014 ... before honing in on the Polo underwear display. 

You can see Randle do the over the shoulder look as he puts the undies in his bag. He then moves over to the cologne section and pulls the same move with a bottle of Gucci Guilty Black. 

BTW, dude took the TESTER BOTTLE!!! 

As Randle tries to casually slip out the door, security moves in and takes him into custody. He eventually pled guilty to misdemeanor theft and was sentenced to 6 months probation. 

Randle was cut by the Cowboys earlier this season and is currently looking for another NFL job so he can PAY for his cologne the next time he hits the mall.

11/12/2015 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Good news for Jerry Jones ... there's at least one guy who supports how he's handling the Greg Hardy situation ... former Cowboys superstar Greg Ellis, who says it's Jones' job to put winning first. 

"I don't think Jerry made a mistake by putting him on the team. Jerry's job is to help the Cowboys win," Ellis told us in L.A. Wednesday night at a screening of his movie "Carter High."

"When [Jerry] sees a talent that can help his team, he goes after that talent."

We also asked if Jones should have reconsidered and FIRED Hardy after pictures surfaced last week showing the damage Hardy allegedly inflicted on his ex-GF in 2014 ... and once again, Ellis had Jerry's back.  

"[The pictures are] not 100% evidence of what really took place."

There's more ... Ellis also says he strongly believes Ray Rice deserves a 2nd chance in the NFL

It's interesting stuff ... check out the clip. 

Cowboys vs. Eagles Brotherly Brawl ... Busted For Assault

11/9/2015 2:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Three brothers took the Cowboys and Eagles game way too seriously, and ended up hospitalized and arrested for beating the crap out of each other in the stands at AT&T Stadium.

The video of their brawl went viral hours after the game -- most people thought they were just opposing fans, but TMZ Sports has learned they were blood. Arlington cops tell us they'll all be charged with different degrees of assault. Meet the bros:

- Jorge Castillo punched his brother, Ignacio ... and got arrested for misdemeanor assault with bodily injury.

- Jose Castillo was arrested for simple assault with provocative contact and failure to obey a police officer.

- Ignacio Castillo was not arrested, yet ... and only because he's laid up in a hospital. Cops say he'll be charged with felony assault on an officer for allegedly spitting blood on a cop trying to stop the fight.

Fun fact: Cops tell us there were 2 other fights that ended with arrests -- and both of those also involved relatives!

Dallas Cowboys Huge Sponsor Stands By Team ... Despite Greg Hardy Pics

11/7/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1106-greg-hardy-american-airlines-cowboys-GETTY-01Seems the Greg Hardy photos aren't scaring off one of the Dallas Cowboys' biggest sponsors -- with American Airlines vowing to stand by the team ... despite the controversy. 

Critics of the Cowboys are calling for sponsors to pull out -- hoping to put pressure on Dallas to fire Hardy after photos surfaced which appear to show the brutal injuries he inflicted on his ex-girlfriend. 

But American Airlines -- which has a partnership with the Cowboys until 2019 -- tells TMZ Sports they're not running for the hills. 

"American Airlines supports teams, not individual players," an AA spokesperson tells us.

"We have a huge employee and customer base in Dallas/Fort Worth and we partner with the Cowboys on several community projects throughout the year. As part of our initiatives to improve the communities we serve, we partner with several organizations that support and protect victims of domestic violence."

However, our sources tell us ... when Hardy was signed to the team, AA discussed the situation internally and expressed concerns about being connected to the embattled player. 

But in the end, AA decided it wasn't worth blowing up the deal with the Cowboys over a player who could be gone by this time next year.

Breaking News

1106_jerry_jones_greg_hardy_gettyDallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says the team will NOT cut, suspend or even bench Greg Hardy after seeing the brutal pics of his ex-GF from his domestic violence case ... saying, "We have given Greg a second chance."

Jones says the team was obviously aware of the allegations against Hardy before they signed him earlier this year -- but had NOT seen the pictures of the alleged victim until Friday. 

"While we did not have access to the photos that became public today, we were and are aware of the serious nature of this incident."

Jones says, "We as an organization take this very seriously. We do not condone domestic violence. We entered into the agreement with Greg fully understanding that there would be scrutiny and criticism."

"We have given Greg a second chance. He is a member of our team and someone who is grateful for the opportunity he has been given to move forward with his life and his career.”

It's worth noting Hardy has made an immediate impact on the Cowboys defense ... emerging as one of the team's best players.
