Breaking News

0201-brock-osweiler-getty-01Bad news for Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler -- the owner basically just said he's looking to replace his $72 million man.

When discussing Brock's underwhelming 1st season with the Texans, owner Bob McNair said, "We need better performance out of the position. We'll probably look at a young QB as we go into draft."

Ouch.

Texans WR Jaelen Strong I'm Going to Drug School ... Thanks to Weed Arrest

EXCLUSIVE

0825-jaelen-strong-GETTY-01Get your trapper keeper ready ... 'cause Houston Texans wide receiver Jaelen Strong is going back to school -- DRUG SCHOOL -- as part of the deal he cut in his weed arrest case. 

As we previously reported, the former Arizona State standout was popped in Scottsdale back in February ... when cops found him trying to hide a bunch of joints in the crotch of his pants. 

Strong was arrested and booked for possession of marijuana -- which carries a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail. 

But Jaelen caught a break ... cutting a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to enter a drug diversion program (an educational course that can take up to 6 months to complete) and undergo counseling ... and in exchange, officials will drop the case. 

It's a good deal for Strong -- just make sure you don't skip class!

J.J. Watt's College Teammate Exposes Hilarious MTV Cameo 'We Gave Him S**t For It'

7/15/2015 9:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Did you know ... J.J. Watt was on an MTV reality-ish show before he became an NFL superstar???? 

His former college teammates did ... including SF 49ers cornerback Marcus Cromartie who tells TMZ Sports the entire Wisconsin Badgers squad gave him crap for it back in 2009. 

First off, Cromartie has nothing but GREAT things to say about Watt -- but when we asked if he thought Watt could hack it in Hollywood, that's when Marcus brought up his MTV past. 

Turns out, Watt had a guest role on a docuseries called, "College Life" -- which followed real life college students at UW (it only lasted one season). 

J.J. -- sporting an incredible sideways beanie/cap at the time -- was the "crush" of one of the stars ... who raved about Watt being a really nice guy.

Check out the clip ...  the girls are clearly smitten with the football player -- but clown him over his mode of transportation at the time. 

Who's laughing now? 

Houston Texans Cheerleader ABS LIKE DEZ BRYANT!

Who says cheerleaders aren't athletes?!! 

Check out this video of Houston Texans cheerleader Daranesha busting out a pretty INSANE ab workout during a team gym session ... while hanging off a heavy bag!

It's the same workout Dallas Cowboys superstar Dez Bryant busts out when he's trying to get his stomach right ... and trust us, it's not easy. 

By the way, on her official Texans bio video, Daranesha says she mostly stays in shape by dancing around the house all day.

Yeah right.

Arnold Schwarzenegger J.J. Watt Should Be Next 'Terminator'

6/18/2015 7:37 AM PDT

Did Arnold Schwarzenegger just invite J.J. Watt to play a T-1000 in the next "Terminator" movie???

Affirmative. 

Watt's a HUGE fan of the action legend -- and even did an impression of the guy when they met face-to-face at the CMT Awards in Nashville earlier this month.  

Well, Arnold liked Watt so much he hooked him up to see an early screening of his new flick "Terminator Genisys" ... and afterward, made an INCREDIBLE offer to the NFL superstar.  

"Of course in the next 'Terminator' you have to be the T-1000."

So far, no word back from Watt ... but, c'mon -- there's no way he turns this down. 

Jeb Bush I Ain't Got Time for Baseball ... I'm Runnin' for Prez!

6/17/2015 2:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gotta respect when a politician is honest ... like when Jeb Bush admitted to us he didn't know about the MLB hacking scandal yesterday because as he put it: "Man, I'm running for president. I've been busy!"

The former Gov. was leaving NBC in New York when we asked about the FBI investigation into the St. Louis Cardinals for allegedly hacking the Houston Astros to steal top secret information. 

Bush has a serious MLB connection, considering his brother George W. was a co-owner of the Texas Rangers. 

By the way, we also asked if he's still a fan of the Astros considering he grew up in Houston ... but he shot that down and said there's only ONE team he roots for nowadays.  

Houston Texans Our Stadium Weathered the Storm

Good news for the Houston Texans ... the team's $350 million stadium has suffered NO DAMAGE from the brutal floods wreaking havoc on the area ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We talked with a spokesperson for NRG Park who tells us, "We're pretty lucky. No damage on the property at all."

"We span across 350-acres and our property includes NRG Stadium (home to the NFL's Houston Texans), NRG Center, NRG Arena and NRG Astrodome."

"Most of the damage was on the freeways surrounding us and, of course, the streets. We had to cancel work yesterday because no one could get around."

One more interesting note ... the spokesperson adds, "Our roof is retractable, so during the storm it was closed. Hence, why there was no water collection."

We also spoke with a rep for the Houston Astros -- who told us Minute Maid Park was also spared ... suffering no major damage on the 29 acre property.
