Michael Irvin

Terrell Owens Can't Help The Cowboys

... 'Cause He's Ancient

10/12/2015 4:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Irvin says T.O.'s initials have a brand new meaning ... Too Old ... 'cause he thinks the former NFL great is a little too long in the tooth to help the injury ravaged Dallas Cowboys.

Of course, 41-year-old Terrell has been ADAMANT he can still hang in the league ... and recently had his agent hit up the Cowboys to start a dialogue about filling in for Dez Bryant who's out with an injury. 

So, we asked The Playmaker about the situation at LAX ... and spoiler alert, Terrell is NOT gonna like his answer.

BTW, check out this clip of Owens putting his skills on display recently -- dude still looks pretty spry to us. 

Dallas Cowboys

Highway Patrol Trooper In Trouble

for Photo with RB

10/12/2015 2:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012-chris-mike-23-pulled-over-picture-INSTAGRAM-01The Texas Highway Patrol trooper who pulled over a Dallas Cowboys running back -- and then took a picture with him -- will face disciplinary actions for the incident ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The photo has been all over the Internet -- a trooper posing with backup running back Christine Michael in front of the player's pulled over Bentley ... causing many people to wonder, WTF?!

We spoke to a rep for the Texas Highway Patrol who tells us ... Michael's car was initially pulled over at noon on Sunday because it appeared the Bentley had illegal tint on the front windshield.

The trooper did not issue a citation -- but asked for a pic and then let Michael go on his way. 

Sergeant Lonny Haschel tells TMZ Sports ... "The trooper’s actions have been reviewed by DPS and are not consistent with department procedure."

"Corrective action, in the form of a procedural review, will be taken. In conversations with his chain of command, the trooper realized his error in judgement and was apologetic for the incident."

As for Michael -- he went on to play the Patriots later that day ... where he had 1 carry for 6 yards. 

NFL's Greg Hardy

Fires Back at Haters In Rap Video

... With Gunfire & Strippers

10/10/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Embattled NFL star Greg Hardy -- the guy who was suspended for allegedly beating up his girlfriend -- is bragging that he'll never get "played" by a woman ever again. 

And he's making his point with the use of a stripper, gunfire sound effects and marijuana imagery in a rap video obtained by TMZ Sports

We've learned ... the Dallas Cowboys defensive end made the video for "I'm Just Me" in late 2014 -- after he was convicted of beating up his GF, throwing her on a bed covered in assault rifles and threatening to kill her. 

Hardy appealed the case -- and his conviction was overturned in 2015 after the alleged victim refused to testify against him in court. 

But during his time in NFL purgatory (he missed most of the 2014 season) Hardy hooked up with rapper Ja Alan to make a video in which Hardy declares to his critics, "What you see is what you get. I'm just me, I'm just real, and that's what I do."

Ja confirms the video was made in late 2014.

Right before Hardy spits his featured verse, a chorus of gunfire rings out. He then raps about women -- saying, "It'll be a cold day in hell before your girl tries to play me."

Interesting, considering Hardy's been under fire this week for several comments he made in which he objectified women (Gisele) and seemingly mocked his own court case by saying he plans to come out "guns blazing" when he returns to the field this week. 

If Hardy was planning to fix his image -- this video sure as hell ain't gonna help. 

We called Hardy for comment -- so far, no word back.

IRS to Dez Bryant

You Dropped the Ball In '13


10/1/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930-dez-bryant-tmz-01update_graphic_red_bar3:23 PM PT -- Bryant's rep tells us ... Dez was notified about the lien in June 2015 and cut a check to the IRS on July 1, 2015 to clear it up.

Bryant's rep insists the lRS released the lien on September 16th, meaning Bryant is now officially off the hook. 

9:56 AM PT -- Bryant's rep, Ron Berkowitz, tells TMZ Sports the Cowboys receiver has handled the situation ... saying, "Clearly, this was an oversight. Once it was brought to Dez's attention, he paid it in full."update_grey_gray_barSeems Dez Bryant threw up the X to Uncle Sam back in 2013 ... failing to pay roughly $80,000 in federal income taxes ... this according to official records obtained by TMZ Sports. 

The IRS filed a federal tax lien against Bryant in Dallas ... claiming he never paid $79,274.75 in income tax for the money he made back in 2013. 

Seems like chump change for Bryant now thanks to his new $70 million deal ... but back in '13, Dez only raked in a measly $1.8 mil, according to 

We're guessing it's just an oversight on Bryant's part ... but you don't wanna play around when it comes to paying the tax man -- just ask Wesley Snipes


Terrell Owens

Haven't Heard Back from Cowboys

... But I'm 'Stayin' Ready'

10/1/2015 6:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Terrell Owens' triumphant return to Dallas is still on hold ... with the WR telling us there hasn't been any movement since he reached out to the Cowboys earlier this season -- but he isn't giving up hope. 

Owens was hangin' out on the Sunset Strip Wednesday when the 41-year-old told us he's still keeping himself in NFL-condition -- "Staying ready, so I don't have to get ready."

Just a few weeks ago, Owens told Rich Eisen he had his agent reach out to the Cowboys to see if they had any interest after losing Dez Bryant to an injury. So we asked him about it. 

"I haven't heard anything as of yet ... but that's not to say that anything can't happen."

Owens says he'd consider playing for other NFL teams -- but insists it would need to be the "right situation." 

Good luck! 

Jermaine Dupri

Tebow to the Cowboys??

... So So Dumb.

9/24/2015 7:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine Dupri is a HUGE fan of the Dallas Cowboys. 

He's NOT a huge fan of Tim Tebow

So, when our guy asked how Jermaine felt about the possibility of the Cowboys bringing Tim to  the squad ... JD wasn't havin' it. 

Poor Tebow ... 

Donald Trump

Bummed About Tony Romo

... But STOKED for Brady!

9/21/2015 10:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump just pointed out ... Tom Brady endorsed him for president -- and now happens to be having a STELLER season. Coincidence? Trump thinks not. 

Trump just took on some NFL questions during an #AskTrump video Q&A with fans -- and one of the issues at hand ... the Dallas Cowboys. 

With Tony Romo out with a broken collarbone ... people wanted to know how Trump felt about Dallas' playoff chances. 

His response wasn't anything spectacular ... he likes Romo, they're personal friends, the injury is bad for the team ... but he pulled off an EXCELLENT pivot move to bring up Tom Brady.

Check out the clip ... he makes sure to let his fans know that Brady is Team Trump -- and people on Team Trump are WINNERS!! 

There's more ... he also vouched for Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco ... claiming the guy is an elite NFL quarterback. You buyin' that? 

Dez Bryant

Diamond Finder Is Unemployed Volunteer

8/20/2015 12:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819_miguel_dez_bryant_ring_twitterImagine you're out of work and looking for a paycheck ... and then you stumble upon a HUGE DIAMOND EARRING -- would you give it back???

Lucky for Dez Bryant, the man who found HIS diamond after it fell out during a Dallas Cowboys practice yesterday isn't you. 

The guy with the golden heart is Miguel Preciado ... who's been volunteering at the Cowboys practice facility in Oxnard, CA while looking for a permanent job. 

Preciado tells us ... he NEVER (not even for a second) considered keeping the diamond and selling it ... even though hawking it could've brought in THOUSANDS of dollars. 

"I'm just a volunteer who did the right thing that I would have wanted done for me," Miguel tells us.

When Miguel gave the diamond to #88 -- Bryant insinuated he'd be hooking up Miguel with some sort of a reward, but Miguel says the move was never about money -- he just wanted to do what's right. 

Major karma points comin' his way. 

Tony Romo

Drinks On Me...

'Cause NFL Cancelled My Event

7/23/2015 10:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0722-tony-romo-getty-02Tony Romo knows how to apologize ... FaceTime and free booze -- that's how the NFL star made good with 200 fans who got screwed out of an event he was supposed to host.

TMZ Sports found out Romo rented a fancy Las Vegas lounge to throw a party for people who bought tickets to what was supposed to be his fantasy football convention. As we reported ... the event was cancelled when the NFL said Tony hosting in a casino would be a violation of league rules.

So, the Cowboys QB called an audible -- inviting ticket holders to Fizz champagne lounge in Caesar's Palace. Besides a free drink, they got an autographed Romo poster -- AND Tony himself FaceTimed in for a quick chat. 

Even Giants fans would have to admit ... pretty cool of Tony. But they probably wouldn't.

Jerry Jones

Mad Props to Jay Z

Did Great Job for Dez Bryant

7/16/2015 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Jerry Jones has become a HUUUGE fan of Jay Z -- praising Dez Bryant for tapping Roc Nation Sports to negotiate his contract ... and saying Hov is a "wonderful" person.  

The Cowboys owner called Dez from New York City to congratulate him on his brand new 5-year $70 MILLION contract ... when he went out of his way to give credit to the hip-hop mogul.   

"My hats off to you," Jones told Bryant ... "You did a good job associating yourself with Jay Z. He's wonderful ... I spent hours with him last night."

Go on Jay, brush your shoulders off.  

Draya Michele

Jerry Jones Will Get Wedding Invite If ...

7/1/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If Jerry Jones wants to go to Orlando Scandrick's wedding, there might be a catch ... so says Orlando's brand new fiancee Draya Michele

As we previously reported, the Dallas Cowboys defensive back popped the question to Draya earlier this month with a $400k engagement ring ... so when we saw Michele on the set of her new movie, we had to ask about the guest list. 

Michele told TMZ Sports they haven't set a date yet -- but expect to extend an invite to Orlando's boss ... if he's still Orlando's boss when they finally do get hitched. 

Don't worry Cowboys fans, Draya says she hopes Orlando retires as a Cowboy ... but let's be honest -- you just never know. 

Orlando Scandrick & Draya

Flossin' $400k Engagement Ring

6/22/2015 6:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Here it is ... the $400,000 engagement ring Dallas Cowboys star Orlando Scandrick gave to Draya Michele ... 7-carats strong! 


As we previously reported, Scandrick popped the question to the "Basketball Wives L.A." star ... roughly one month after they broke up -- using one hell of an olive branch. 

Draya said "Yes" ... we're guessing the insane piece of jewelry designed by Jason of Beverly Hills helped do the trick ... and now the couple is on track to tie the knot after 2 years of dating. 

No word on when or where the wedding will be ... but we're guessing Orlando can probably get a discount if he wants to use Jerry's World in Dallas right now. He knows people. 

Draya Michele

Just one month after they called it quits, the "Basketball Wives LA" star announced that Scandrick suddenly popped the question at a movie theater in Sherman Oaks, CA. 

"He got down on one knee and as soon as he started to talk I got nervous and couldn't help but to laugh hysterically. I was laughing and crying at the same time," Draya told People

As for the ring ... we spoke to Orlando's famous jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills who tells us it's almost 7 carats, with a MASSIVE diamond in the center ... and it's valued at  $400,000!!! 

"Orlando is one of the most detail-oriented clients I've ever worked with. Orlando was very serious about keeping it a secret."

Draya and Orlando have been dating for roughly two years ... and for the past few months, Draya's been very clear that she wanted a RING on her finger. 

Sooooo ...... congrats!
