Bart Scott Jets Made Great Trade w/ Colts Gotta Draft Premiere QB

3/19/2018 1:09 PM PDT

The Jets made a helluva great trade jumping up 3 spots in the NFL Draft ... guaranteeing they get a top QB, this according to former Jets star LB Bart Scott.

Gang Green made the blockbuster move over the weekend -- sending their 6th overall pick and three 2nd round picks to the Colts -- in exchange for the 3rd overall pick ... a price some thought was too steep. 

Scott -- who spent 4 seasons with the Jets between '09 and '12, and now co-hosts 'The Afternoon Drive' on WFAN in NYC -- says the move sets the Jets up to land a franchise quarterback.

"Now they're in a safe spot, where I believe they can get one of the 3 premiere quarterbacks in the draft."

So, who's the ideal fit?

"I'm good with anyone. Darnold, Allen, Rosen. Rosen is the more ready, but I like Allen the best, 'cause I like the big arm."

But, what if Penn State superstar RB Saquon Barkley is still on the board when the Jets' pick rolls around?

Scott knows what to do ... 

Can't wait!

Breaking News

Johnny Manziel and his smokin' hot wife, Bre Tiesi, aren't wasting any time celebrating the ol' ball and chain ... whisking away to Cabo for some married fun in the sun!!

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Johnny and Bre got hitched in a private California ceremony last week -- 1 year after Manziel popped the question.

Word is they might have a proper wedding bash for all the homies later this year ... but first, they're hitting the sweet Mexican sand for their 1st vacay as Mr. and Mrs. Manziel!

As for what they're up to ... it's all pretty cute-sy stuff -- taste-testing some salsa, lounging by the water, even trolling each other on their March Madness allegiances (seems Bre ain't a Texas A&M fan). 


Ex-NFL Star Mark Gastineau He's Sick 'Cause of Karma Says Ex-Wife Lisa Gastineau

3/19/2018 6:24 AM PDT


That's why ex-Jets star Mark Gastineau's life is in shambles -- so says his ex-wife, Lisa Gastineau

We got the reality TV star leaving Craig's in L.A., and asked if she had heard Mark's recent radio interview ... where he painfully described how playing football has destroyed his mind and his body

Lisa wasn't feeling ANY sympathy for her former boo -- saying it all comes down to the K-word. Guessing she still hasn't forgotten about Mark allegedly cheating on her with Brigitte Nielsen back in the day.

FYI -- 61-year-old Mark has previously said he's been diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's ... and now he's in the process of suing the NFL.

Lisa, meanwhile, has been killin' it as a reality fashionista on shows like "Extra," "The View" and 'ET.'

Senator Chuck Schumer The Giants Can Make Super Bowl ... If They Keep Eli

3/19/2018 12:10 AM PDT

If the NY Giants don't want to get audited, they'll keep Eli Manning because a prominent NY politician is totally pro-#10 ... saying he can lead the G-Men back to the Super Bowl.

We talked to NY Senator Chuck Schumer and asked what the Giants should do with that 2nd overall pick -- and like any good politician, he had a plan. 

"Yes, they gotta keep Eli and draft a line," Schumer said ..." I like the guy they got from the Patriots, but they need more offensive line."

"If they get a good offensive line, they're gonna be a Super Bowl contender."

Of course we pressed him like DJ Envy talking to Desus & Mero, but Schumer made it clear he's against picking a signal caller in this QB-heavy draft.

"Keep Eli."

Better hope it works -- you're up for re-election soon.

Barry Switzer I Should've Made WAY More Money ... I Totally Deserved It

3/17/2018 12:05 AM PDT

Hall of Fame coach Barry Switzer is letting the world know he's been CHEATED by father time, saying the HUGE money that the football coaches are making now should've been his ... and he's got PROOF.

Switzer was on Capitol Hill wheelin' and dealin' with the Washington types (on behalf of search and rescue dogs) when we asked him about the insane salaries some NFL players are making. 

That's not what Barry wanted to talk about, though -- 'cause he let loose on what the guys in the headsets are making ... and how he feels like he got the short end of the money stick.

"What about the coaches?! The salaries these damn coaches are getting! I got paid $24k a year, went 32-1-1, won 2 national championships, 2 undefeated seasons back-to-back ... I didn't even get a bonus! We were on probation (at Oklahoma)."

Just for some comparison, Jimbo Fisher, who has 1 national title, just signed a 10-year $75 MILLION contract to bolt Florida State and head to Texas A&M.

Man might have a point.

An ex-college football standout -- once considered one of the best junior college running backs in the country -- has been convicted of rape ... TMZ Sports has learned.

According the the L.A. County District Attorney's office, 22-year-old Kishawn Holmes is facing up to 18 years behind bars for raping a fellow Cerritos College student back in 2016.

Officials say the victim was a 19-year-old female. We're told she was performing an athletic massage on Holmes before things turned violent

Along with the prison time, Holmes is facing lifetime sex offender registration.

FYI -- Holmes was fresh off a 1,100-yard rushing season and reportedly had 7 Division 1 scholarship offers prior to the incident. 

This was Holmes' SECOND rape case -- as a minor, he pled guilty to rape after he was accused of sexually assaulting 2 different underage girls in 2013.

Holmes is scheduled to be sentenced on May 2nd.

The Ryan Shazier comeback is underway ... with the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker killin' it in the gym just 3 months after suffering a serious back injury.

Remember, Shazier required MAJOR spinal stabilization surgery back in December after suffering a severe spinal injury while playing the Bengals during Monday Night Football. 

Shazier couldn't feel his legs at first -- and there was a real possibility he could've been paralyzed from the waist down. 

But, Shazier vowed to defy the odds and not only walk again -- but get back to the NFL!!!

He started physical therapy last month and he's already standing on his own.

The upper body gym session on Friday is also a damn good sign.

3/16/2018 6:07 AM PDT

Josh Norman is already getting behind his new QB -- telling TMZ Sports he feels Alex Smith is "underrated" for everything he's done in his career. 

We spotted the Washington Redskins star cornerback in Atlanta and asked how he felt about the big quarterback moves in the NFL ... including his old QB Kirk Cousins getting an $84 million deal with the Vikings. 

Norman looked a little bummed out (why not? he's a good quarterback) but explained, "It's business. Everything is business."'

He also explained why Cousins is worth every single penny. 

By the way ... Norman -- super nice guy.

Brent -- who missed only 1 regular-season game in 11 SEASONS with the team -- says he's not 100% on continuing his playing career ... but no matter if it's on the field or off, he's gonna fly with the Super Bowl LII champs in the future. 

"One day I'll be back with the Eagles in some capacity," Celek told TMZ Sports

"When -- who knows? But, I love that organization ... I owe it to 'em."

Brent's also got nothing but love for Philly and its hardcore fans -- saying they've been great to him since he got drafted by the team in 2007.

Case in point -- the standing O they gave him at the 76ers game on Tuesday ... just hours after he was released.

Brent described everything it meant to him ... and you're gonna need some tissues. 

Joe McKnight Shooter Gets 30 Years in Prison ... for Manslaughter

3/15/2018 8:25 AM PDT
Breaking News

The man who shot and killed ex-NFL RB Joe McKnight could be spending the rest of his life in a prison cell. 

Ronald Gasser, 56, was just sentenced to 30 years behind bars ... less than 2 months after he was found guilty of manslaughter in a Louisiana courtroom. The maximum sentence he faced was 40 years.

Gasser was originally charged with 2nd-degree murder, but the jury elected for the lesser charge of manslaughter after more than 7 hours of deliberation back on Jan. 26.

McKnight -- who played for the Jets and Chiefs from 2010-2014 -- was gunned down by Gasser during a road-rage incident on Dec. 1, 2016, which ended when Gasser shot McKnight 3 times through his passenger side window. 

Joe was only 28.

McKnight's mother, Jennifer, gave a victim impact statement before the sentencing, saying -- "That day, you didn't have to do that. That didn't have to happen. It hurts. It's going to hurt a long time."

Michelle Quick, the mother of Joe's 8-year-old son, also addressed Gasser before leaving the courtroom in tears.

"It will be my life's mission to make sure my son, Jaiden, doesn't grow up with hate for you. Not because you don't deserve it, but because he should not have hate in his heart."

FYI, Gasser's lawyer's filed a motion for a new trial before the sentencing -- claiming he was clearly acting in self-defense -- but the judge rejected their proposal.

They're planning to appeal the 30-year sentence.

Johnny Manziel Marries Bre Tiesi In Private Wedding Ceremony

3/14/2018 3:49 PM PDT

Johnny Manziel is officially a MARRIED MAN -- tying the knot with Bre Tiesi in a very quiet private ceremony, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Manziel had popped the question to Tiesi in March 2017. The 25-year-old has credited Bre with turning his life around and getting him cleaned up after years of craziness

We had noticed the two were wearing rings recently that appeared to be wedding bands -- and now, sources connected to the couple tell us they have indeed traded "I do's."

In fact, sources tell us Tiesi plans on taking Manziel's last name.  

We're told the ceremony took place at a California courthouse. Unclear if it was just Johnny and Bre, or if a few other people attended as well. 

Sources tell us the couple hasn't ruled out a wedding celebration later this year. 

It's been a big year for Johnny who's been training like crazy with some of his NFL friends including Joe Haden in an effort to get back to the NFL. 

He'll finally get back on the field when the Spring League begins in two weeks. 

Mazel tov! 

Tyrann Mathieu There's Still Hope for Johnny Manziel If He Does This ...

3/14/2018 10:08 AM PDT

Johnny Manziel can still resurrect his NFL career, so says Tyrann Mathieu -- but he's gotta do one fundamental thing to complete his comeback. 

We spoke with Honey Badger on the TMZ Sports TV show (airs weeknights on FS1) ... and since he's got one of football's best redemption stories, we asked him what Johnny should do to follow suit.

Tyrann's main piece of advice -- tune out the haters!!

"We get to certain points and certain stages in our career where we start to take other peoples’ opinions more than our own," Mathieu said.

"We stop believing in ourselves. We start believing in other people and what they’re saying."

And if Manziel gets that self-belief back -- "He’ll be alright."

FYI, we got Johnny out in L.A. over the weekend ... and it looks like he's already on his way!!

Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris Sentenced to Jail ... for Weed Arrest

3/13/2018 11:09 AM PDT

Bad news for Kansas City Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris ... dude just got sentenced to JAIL TIME after getting caught with more than an ounce of weed.

As we previously reported, Harris was pulled over in Missouri back in March 2017 and, during the stop, cops found more than 35 grams of marijuana in the car.  

He was initially charged with felony possession -- but later struck a deal with prosecutors in which he pled guilty to a lesser possession charge (misdemeanor) and in exchange he got 2 days in jail.

A spokesperson for Bates County Circuit Court tells TMZ Sports Harris will not get credit for time served -- he must complete the 2-day sentence at a later date. No word on when he plans to turn himself in. 

Harris was also sentenced to 80 hours of community service and 2 years probation and must complete an NFL drug program. 

Once again ... all of this for WEEEEEEEEED. 

Harris is entering the last year of his contract in K.C. -- maybe look into signing with the Chargers,  Raiders, Rams, Broncos or Seahawks???? #LegalWeed
