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

8/12/2016 9:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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
EXCLUSIVE

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
EXCLUSIVE

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!!!

EXCLUSIVE

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
EXCLUSIVE

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 All Smiles Again After Domestic Violence Allegations

7/26/2016 12:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0726-ezekiel-elliott-instagram-01-Ezekiel Elliott doesn't look like he's too worried about last week's domestic violence allegations -- posting a photo to social media with a big ol' smile on his face. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Elliott's ex-GF claimed the Dallas Cowboys star struck her during a parking lot altercation early Friday morning -- and later claimed he had a history of violence against her. 

But cops spoke with 4 witnesses who say they never saw Elliott lay a finger on the woman -- and in the end, officers did NOT arrest Elliott because they didn't feel there was enough evidence to prove he committed a crime.

The woman was referred to the prosecutor's office -- but clearly, Elliott ain't sweatin' it.

0726-randy-gregory-GETTY-01More drama for the Dallas Cowboys ... 

Defensive end Randy Gregory has checked into a treatment facility after reportedly failing another drug test ... according to ESPN. 

Gregory -- who was dropped in the 2015 NFL Draft after testing positive for weed at the combine -- was suspended in February after failing at least 4 NFL drug tests. 

He was already set to miss the first 4 games of the season -- but this new failed test (#5) would mean he's now facing an even LONGER ban from the league.

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."

update-grey-gray-bar

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."

Dez Bryant Sued Allegedly Trashed Texas Mansion ... 'Trash, Feces, Odors'

6/22/2016 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0622-dez-bryant-tmz-02Dez Bryant has been sued for allegedly causing more than $60,000 in damage to a Texas home owned by a state senator ... a man who claims Bryant left the home littered in "trash and feces."

The man behind the lawsuit is Royce West -- a member of the Texas senate -- who says he rented out his 6,400 square foot 6 bed, 7.5 bath mansion to the Dallas Cowboys WR from 2013 to 2016. 

In the suit, West says Bryant was paying $4,720 per month ... and agreed to leave the home in good condition. 

0622_dez_bryant_house_launchBut West says ... when Bryant left the home in January, the place was a disaster ... "a state of serious disrepair."

In fact, West says the place was covered in "animal feces, trash, missing blinds and shutters, with cracked windows and blackened carpeting."

He says there were also "distinct and pervasive odors throughout" the home.

West says he was forced to undergo a MASSIVE cleanup to restore the home including: 

-- removing trash and furniture

-- repainting the entire residence 

-- cleaning, removing and replacing flooring and carpeting 

-- replacing the lighting and ceiling fans 

-- replacing windows and screens

-- replacing the home security system 

In the end, the repairs cost $61,546.77. 

BTW, this is the home where Dez famously lived with his pet monkey last year. Unclear if that explains the animal feces. 

West says he approached Bryant and his team and demanded the money for the repairs -- but Bryant threw up the X ... and never forked over the dough. 

West says he's been unable to rent the place out due to the damage and repair work -- and wants a TON of cash from Bryant ... somewhere between $100k and $200k. 

We reached out to Bryant's reps -- so far, no word back. 

Dez Bryant No Hazing Ezekiel Elliott 'We Need His Mind To Be Right'

6/21/2016 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Don't expect to see Ezekiel Elliott wearing a pink tutu on the Dallas Cowboys practice field this fall ... 'cause Dez Bryant says EE is totally in the clear when it comes to the subject of rookie hazing.

We got Bryant at LAX (walking with ZERO limp, rejoice Dallas fans) and asked him if he was looking forward to making Elliott pony up some major cash for the rookie hazing dinner.

It's an interesting question for Bryant ... if you remember he famously rejected aspects of hazing when he was a rookie ... refusing to carry pads for Cowboys veterans back in 2010.

Elliott won't have to go through it either according to Dez ... who told our guy EE is off the hook for two reasons ... the Cowboys don't haze anymore ... and Elliott is too important to be mentally terrorized.

Check out the clip -- and imagine what Elliott would've looked like in that tutu.

NFL's Ezekiel Elliott Guns & Cowboy Boots ... Hey, When In Dallas!

5/19/2016 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

People in Texas love their cowboy boots and they love their guns ... which is why Ezekiel Elliott says he's down to give BOTH a try now that he's officially a Dallas Cowboy.

FYI, Elliott -- the #4 overall pick -- signed his $25 MILLION contract Wednesday ... so when we saw him at LAX Thursday, we asked how he planned on spending the dough (hint: big gift for mom). 

But it's also important to take in the local flavor -- which is why EE says he's down to pick up some fancy boots and maybe even learn to shoot a gun (he's never shot one before). 

Elliott says there's only one thing he knows he won't have to spring for -- a rookie hazing dinner -- insisting the Cowboys don't haze. 

Dez Bryant might have something to say about that ...

But Jerry Jones wasn't just there to enjoy the show ... he was backstage glad-handing with some VIPs, including DJ Khaled

Khaled called it "mogul talk" ... it was more like "mogul exchanging pleasantries." 

Still cool though.
