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

NFL's Sean Smith Pleads Guilty to Assault ... Begins Jail Sentence

3/13/2018 9:26 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-Oakland Raiders cornerback Sean Smith was just remanded into custody to begin a 1-year jail sentence after pleading guilty to felony assault stemming from a 2017 attack in Pasadena.  

As we previously reported, Smith beat the hell out of his sister's boyfriend in Old Town Pasadena on July 4 -- punching and stomping the man so badly, he suffered 5 facial fractures. 

The victim required major reconstructive surgery including a metal plate under his right eye. 

Smith initially pled not guilty, but eventually struck a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to plead guilty to felony assault by means of force likely to create great bodily injury.

In exchange, Smith got 1 year in prison and 5 years probation. The judge also told Smith he's not allowed to own a gun -- for the rest of his life. He's also ordered to pay the victim restitution. 

Smith was handcuffed and taken into custody right in the courtroom to begin his sentence. He already has 1 day of credit under his belt -- so only 364 more days to go. 

Smith -- who had signed a $40 million contract with the Raiders in 2016 -- was facing up to 7 years behind bars. The Raiders formally cut Smith Monday night. 

Adrian Peterson My Dream Team? Houston Texans!

3/13/2018 12:45 AM PDT

This is gonna be music to J.J. Watt's and Deshaun Watson's ears ... one of the greatest running backs of all time tells TMZ Sports his "dream scenario" would be to sign with the Houston Texans! 

With Adrian Peterson and the Arizona Cardinals officially parting ways, we spoke with AP about his NFL future ... specifically where he wants to play next.

"Obviously, being back home would be awesome," Peterson said ... "Houston has always been a team I've thought about."

Not only was Peterson born and raised in Palestine, Texas (about 150 miles from Houston) -- he also owns a famous 10,500 square foot mansion in the Houston area. 

"Being back here at home where I work out every day. My family is here. My family is close. My mom is here. Being around her a little more during this time [in my life] would be even more a cherry on top."

Peterson says it doesn't hurt that the Texans are stacked on both sides of the ball.

"The defense is incredible, obviously. Good division to be in. Good young quarterback, receivers, Hopkins! It's a lot of talent there as well."

The hole for Houston seems to be the running back spot -- no one on the team rushed for more than 900 yards last year. 

Your move, Texans ... 

Broncos' Adam Gotsis Arrested for Alleged 2013 Rape

3/12/2018 3:43 PM PDT
Breaking News

Broncos DE Adam Gotsis was arrested in Atlanta last week for allegedly raping a woman when he was a player at Georgia Tech in 2013. 

According to the incident report, the woman -- now 30 -- claims Gotsis "placed his penis in her vagina against her will" on the night of March 9, 2013.

The alleged victim did not file a report until February 1, 2018. It's unclear why she waited nearly 5 years.

Gotsis turned himself in to the Fulton County Sheriff's Office on March 7 ... and was released the same day on a $50,000 bond.

The Broncos released the following statement ... “We were recently informed of an investigation into an alleged incident involving Adam Gotsis that occurred in 2013 when he was in college."

"Our organization was aware of his arrest on March 7, and it is our understanding that no determination has been made at this time as to whether any charges will be filed."

"The Broncos take an accusation of this nature very seriously and will continue to closely monitor the legal proceedings. This issue was promptly reported to the NFL as soon as we learned of it, and we will remain in communication with the league office regarding this matter." 

Gotsis was a 2nd-round pick for Denver in 2016. He played in all 16 games for the Broncos last season, making 13 starts.

Aldon Smith Pleads Not Guilty In Domestic Violence Case

3/12/2018 2:50 PM PDT

Aldon Smith isn't exactly rolling over in his domestic violence case -- the embattled NFL star just pled not guilty to assault charges stemming from a March 3 incident involving his fiancee. 

Smith was hit with 4 misdemeanor charges -- domestic violence, assault w/ force likely to produce great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism.

Smith's fiancee previously told us the NFL player bit her during an alcohol-fueled rage. He checked himself into a rehab center the very next day. 

Now, San Francisco District Attorney spokesperson Alex Bastian tells us Smith appeared in court Monday for his arraignment and pled not guilty. 

There is a protective order filed against him by the accuser. He's due back in court on April 5. 

Christopher Darden The Glove DID Fit O.J. Finally Admitted It!!!

3/12/2018 12:53 PM PDT

O.J. Simpson copping to leaving the infamous bloody glove at the double murder scene is all former prosecutor Christopher Darden needed to hear to know he was right all along.

Darden, Marcia Clark's co-prosecutor in Simpson's trial of the century, tells us watching "O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?" proved Simpson and his dream team outsmarted the jury.

In particular, he says Johnnie Cochran's famous line, "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit" just doesn't hold up once you hear Simpson admit he must have left the glove "because they found the glove there." Darden famously came up with the plan to have Simpson try on the gloves in court ... which, of course, backfired on the prosecution.

As for Simpson's hypothetical accomplice named Charlie -- Darden has an explanation, and it's all about O.J.'s imagination.

Johnny Manziel Back Up Tom Brady?! ... Hell Yes!

3/12/2018 7:10 AM PDT

Johnny Manziel says backing up Tom Brady for the Patriots would be a dream come true for him -- telling TMZ Sports, "I'll go to New England in a heartbeat!" 

Manziel was reacting to NFL Network's Nate Burleson who recently spelled out why he thinks Johnny going to N.E. actually makes sense. 

Clearly, Johnny's all about it! 

Manziel was out at The Nice Guy in L.A. over the weekend -- sober and in a great mood. He also talked about all the big topics in the NFL ... from the Browns to the Broncos to his friend, Mike Evans.

"He got PAAAAAAAIIIIDDDDD," Manziel said -- clearly fired up for his old Texas A&M receiver who just inked a 5-year extension worth up to $82.5 MILLION! 

As for the Browns, Johnny seems optimistic about their future after making some blockbuster trades last week -- but only because ya can't get any worse than 0-16. 

"Anything is better than what they were!" 

Johnny also talks about his friendship with Von Miller and how they support each other off the field. 

Tom Brady My Kids Live In Different Cities ... with Different Moms

3/12/2018 6:54 AM PDT
Breaking News

Makes sense ... guess we didn't think about it before -- but Tom Brady just said his 3 kids don't live in the same city ... his oldest boy lives about 215 miles away with his mom, Bridget Moynahan

Brady was talking about his family during an interview with "Good Morning America" when Michael Strahan asked if his kids understood how big of a deal he is. 

That's when Brady said his oldest son -- 10-year-old Jack -- is starting to get it because he lives in New York around a bunch of Giants and Jets fans. 

Brady then said his other two kids -- 5-year-old Vivian and 8-year-old Benny -- live in Boston with him and Gisele

Of course, Jack is Brady's son with his ex-GF, Bridget Moynahan -- and she's based out of New York these days. Judging from Brady's comments, it sounds like he primarily lives with her and goes to school in NY. 

Still, based on Tom's reality show "Tom vs Time" it seems like Brady and Jack have a pretty good relationship

Terrell Owens Gets Stem Cell Surgery ... Video Is Gnarly

3/11/2018 12:40 AM PST

Terrell Owens went under the knife for a stem cell treatment to help repair his joints, tendons and ligaments ... and TMZ Sports was invited into the operating room for the procedure!!! 

Break out your scalpel and your O.R. scrubs -- it's about to get ALL SURGICAL UP IN HERE!!! 

Here's the deal ... Owens visited Dr. Raj from the Beverly Hills Orthopedic Institute for a treatment he essentially described as bone marrow-derived stem cell injections. 

So, what does that all mean? He takes stem cells from the hip bone and injects them into damaged areas of the body. 

"I'm utilizing regenerative cells to regenerate and repair joints, tendons, and ligaments," Raj tells us.

"It's minimally invasive. In T.O.'s case, he damaged himself from years and years of football. He had both knees, both shoulders, both elbows (triceps tendonitis) and right hip done."

Owens says the move isn't part of an NFL comeback -- he just wants to stay healthy and feeling good as he hits his mid-40s. 

The video of the procedure is super interesting -- especially when the doc hammers the syringe into T.O.'s hip for the extraction!

How dope is medicine?!

L.A. Rams' Marcus Peters Burned By U.S. Ambassador!

3/10/2018 12:26 PM PST

Chalk one up on the scoreboard for U.S. ambassador to Portugal George Glass, who managed to completely route L.A. Rams superstar defensive back Marcus Peters.

As we previously reported, several NFL players are in Portugal with American Football Without Barriers, and Glass has been accompanying the players throughout the country. So far Glass hasn't had it easy ... he got sacked by Marshawn Lynch earlier this week.

But Saturday it was different story when Peters and Glass squared up at Estádio Algarve on the country's south coast. Glass split left and burned Peters off the line inside on a slant route before Peters could even flinch.

Peters was recently traded to the L.A. Rams. Dude better work on his footwork before football season starts.

Tyrann Mathieu Praises Richard Sherman ... He Changed the Game!

3/9/2018 3:12 PM PST

Tyrann Mathieu says it "sucks" that Richard Sherman has to go through a public breakup with Seattle -- considering the legendary run he had with the Seahawks. 

"All those guys in Seattle really set a new standard of how guys wanna play DB," Mathieu said on the "TMZ Sports" TV show. 

Mathieu says Sherman is still a BEAST and there are plenty of teams "that deserve a guy like him" -- so don't worry about Richard's NFL future. 

You can tell Tyrann has serious respect for Sherman and the entire L.O.B. 

We talked with Mathieu about A LOT more -- from LSU to Johnny Manziel ... so make sure to catch the entire interview when it airs Monday night on FS1. 

Soledad O'Brien O.J. Accomplice 'Charlie' = O.J.? IF He Did It?

3/9/2018 1:23 PM PST

O.J. Simpson never took the stand in his trial of the century, but his upcoming TV special is as close as you're gonna get to that ... according to Soledad O’Brien who's hosting it.

Soledad tells us 'The Lost Confession?' is the most bizarre 2 hours of TV she's ever worked on for a bunch of reasons. For starters, she says Simpson's mannerisms are suspect. We know ... understatement, but in particular, she was struck by the timing of his laughter.

Also, Soledad's stumped by Simpson's description of an accomplice named "Charlie." She points out investigators had zero knowledge of such a person -- but she's got a few theories.

We also told you about O.J.'s lawyer calling Judith Regan, the woman who published his book, 'If I Did It,' and straight-up said Simpson murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman ... this according to Regan herself.

That clip, however, is an outtake and won't make it on Sunday's show.

Denver Broncos Owners Son Avoids Jail In 100 MPH DUI Case

3/9/2018 12:23 PM PST

John Bowlen -- son of Broncos owner Pat Bowlen -- has cut a plea deal in his DUI case ... the one where he told a cop, "So you know who my father is?"

As we previously reported, the 31-year-old -- who used to work for the Broncos -- was busted in July 2017 when cops say he was blazing down a California highway around 100 mph while drunk. 

And to make matters worse ... he had a puppy in the backseat. 

Now, we've learned ... John appeared in a San Luis Obispo court Thursday and pled no contest to driving under the influence. The good news for Bowlen? No jail time.

He ain't completely off the hook ... the judge sentenced him to 3 years probation and ordered him to pay $2,415 in fines and other costs. He must also complete a DUI education program. 

FYI -- this wasn't Bowlen's first brush with the law ... back in 2015, he was arrested for domestic violence and told officials he was the "blood of the city."
