NFL's Eric Decker

Terrible (Hot) Fake Guitarist

In Wife's Music Video

2/20/2015 6:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

NY Jets wide receiver Eric Decker may have found his second calling ... MUSIC VIDEO VIXEN ... 'cause the guy plays "sexy model" in his wife's new video ... complete with bad fake guitar playing. 

FYI -- Decker's married to country music superstar Jessie James ... who just released a video for her new song, "Clint Eastwood."

The video has all the traditional staples of a country song -- a trailer, daisy dukes ... and dudes playing guitars.  

One of those guys is Decker ... who chews on a stogie and pretends to play along in Jessie's backup band while she belts out the main tune. It's pretty funny to watch.  

Bottom line -- he's a terrible pretender ... but as one person in the newsroom put it, "OH MY GOD, HE'S SO HOT!"

I Use Tom Brady!

EXCLUSIVE
121714_michael_vick_launch_v2Michael Vick still loves playing football video games, but NOT as himself -- instead he told us he prefers to "play with a passer" ... who goes by the name of Tom Brady!

Vick was in New York on Tuesday donating Nike sneakers to the Boys and Girls Club of Harlem. With Christmas right around the corner ... he revealed his favorite holiday memory is getting his first Nintendo.

And that's when the Madden issue ... or rather, the Brady issue comes up. Considering the NY Jets play Brady and the Pats this week -- his comment might piss of loyal Jets fans. But honestly ... Jets fans, players, and coaches have more to worry about.: 3 and 11, dude. 

As for his future with Gang Green -- Vick says he's not sure about next season. Hey, someone's gotta backup Brady.

'HE'S DEPRESSED'

About Terrible Jets Season

EXCLUSIVE
120114_decker_radio_launch_v2Eric Decker is seriously "depressed" over the disastrous season he's having with the NY Jets ... and it's starting to affect his home life ... this according to his famous country singer wife Jessie James

James appeared on the The Todd Show on 95.5 WPLJ in NYC (that airs tomorrow) ... and opened up about how the 2-9 season is taking an emotional toll on the high-priced wide receiver. 

"It's been a really hard season. He's been, I don't wanna say depressed, but he's been depressed."

James says Eric is particularly frustrated because he's "not able to really show his ability right now and he's got a lot of doubters and that hurts him."

She adds, "It's rough."

Meanwhile, Emmanuel Sanders ... who replaced Decker over in Denver ... is having the best season of his life and says playing with Peyton Manning is "wide receiver heaven."

Guess that makes Metlife Stadium wide receiver hell?? 

'Game of Thrones' Creator

Geno Smith Sucks

11/11/2014 7:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
1111-george-geno-getty-01He lost 7 games in a row. He lost the starting job. And now Geno Smith has lost the support of a HUGE NY Jets fans ... "Game of Thrones" creator George R.R. Martin.

Martin is such a big Jets fan, he writes a blog about the team -- and in his most recent post, George took some shots at the sophomore QB ... basically saying he sucks and it's time to move on.

George was waxing poetic about the Jets' victory over the Steelers ... writing, "For the moment, I will enjoy the win and wonder what might have happened if Rex [Ryan] had only benched Geno Smith earlier. (I was distressed to see Geno back as second string and Matt Simms inactive. Simms showed more in his brief appearance last week than Geno has all season)."

He continued ... "Gang Green DOES have some good players, if only they could get a quarterback."

Martin also muses about the downside to winning games so late in the season.

"It is certainly more fun to watch the Jets win than to watch them lose, but if they start racking up victories now, all it will do is ruin their chances of getting a real franchise QB in the draft."

Haven't seen a prodigy fall this hard since Bran Stark.

EXCLUSIVE
11114_michael_vick_launchThe NY Jets felt SOOO GOOD after beating up on the Steelers on Sunday ... the team hit the catwalk 24 hours later, busting out their best Zoolander impersonations for a NY fashion show.

Mike Vick -- along with guys like Nick Mangold, Eric Decker, Calvin Pace, Quinton Coples and more -- strutted his stuff Monday night at the Taste of the Jets charity event at the World Trade Center.

The event raised money for Food Bank for New York City to fight hunger -- and the guys took their modeling jobs pretty seriously ... at least judging by the way they dominated the runway.

A fight between a NY Jets fan and Buffalo Bills fan at MetLife Stadium this weekend ended in a savage knockout ... with the Bills fan slumping into his seat after being knocked unconscious.

TMZ Sports has the shocking footage -- which shows the two men tussling in the stands during the 2nd half of the Bills vs. Jets matchup ... right after the Bills started pulling away.

You can see the Jets fan take a swing -- and he connects right to the head of the Bills fan ... and the guy immediately is out cold.

According to witnesses, the Jets fan left the scene before security arrived.

One witness tells TMZ Sports, "The Bills fan had been shooting his mouth off before the fight and the Jets fans took exception."

You can see the Bills fan being tended to by other fans -- including another man in a Jets jersey.

We spoke to the NJ State Police who tell us ... the Jets fan was apprehended as he fled the scene and was arrested and charged with simple assault. 

We're told ... at the scene, it did not appear the Bills fan suffered "serious injury."

The State Police also tell us they have "very good footage" of the entire incident from their state-of-the-art surveillance system -- and warn others, "Anyone would be a fool to commit a crime inside MetLife Stadium."

Joe Namath is so New York ... even the first Broadway show he ever saw was all about The Jets.

The NFL Hall of Famer was out in NYC this week and we had to ask ... with a nickname like "Broadway Joe" -- what was the first Broadway play he ever saw.

Namath gave the only answer you'd expect a NY Jets legend to give ... because when you're a Jet, you're a Jet all the way ... right?

Rex Ryan On Arrested WR:

Big Difference Between

Accused & Convicted

9/5/2014 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
090314_rex_ryan_launchNY Jets coach Rex Ryan is saying the team is keeping a close eye on rookie WR Quincy Enunwa -- who was arrested for domestic violence Sunday -- but says there's a big difference between "accused" and "convicted."

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Enunwa was busted at a hotel in NJ, where he allegedly got violent with a woman during a heated argument. Enunwa plead not guilty to the domestic violence charge. 

Coach Ryan addressed the issue during a media conference Thursday and said, "We are aware of it. This is something we take very seriously, obviously."

When asked if he would allow a player to remain on the team after he was convicted of domestic violence, Ryan said ... "There are different things. But, obviously there is a big difference between being charged, allegedly charged, and being convicted."

Ryan initially said the team knew about the arrest before they signed Enunwa to the practice squad this week -- but then backtracked and said:

"You know what, I said that before about the practice squad, I can’t really remember the timetable. I have been so focused on the Raiders. I am not going to get into the specifics of it. I don’t want to give you false information. Quite honestly I don’t remember if it was before the practice squad or not."

As for Enunwa, he's still on the practice squad ... and his domestic violence case is ongoing.

NY Jets defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman is under investigation for allegedly SLAPPING a woman at a New Jersey restaurant earlier this week ... this according to a police report obtained by TMZ Sports ... and we obtained photos taken during the heated exchange.  

A 28-year-old woman has filed a police report with the Morristown PD, claiming she was at the outdoor bar at Pazzo Pazzo restaurant on Wednesday afternoon when she encountered Thurman. 

According to the report, 58-year-old Thurman began hitting on her and offering her drinks -- but she made it clear she was not interested. 

At that point, the woman claims Thurman "showed an aggressive demeanor toward her" and then "out of nowhere, Thurman slapped her across the face."

0516-dennis-thurman-main-01The woman says she was shocked and blurted out, "You just hit me."

TMZ Sports obtained 2 photos taken during the encounter -- one of which shows the woman flipping Thurman off moments before the slap ... and another photo appears to show Thurman following through after the alleged slap. 

After the alleged slap, the woman claims Thurman -- who played 8 years in the NFL as a defensive back -- threw his hands up in the air and left the area. 

The woman claims she was not injured during the incident, but filed the report out of concern Thurman would strike other women in the future. 

We reached out to the Jets -- so far, no comment.

Jersey Number Could Be Huge Problem

In Negotiation with Jets

EXCLUSIVE
0320_vick_smith_getty

Michael Vick knows his price ... and it might be way too high for the NY Jets ... because he wants the jersey that belongs to the current starting QB -- and it's gonna be an issue during negotiations, TMZ Sports has learned. 


Sources close to Vick tell us ... Mike is very serious about rocking #7 next season, no matter which team signs him. 

Besides the fact he wore #7 in college and all throughout his pro career, Vick also has a clothing line called V7 -- and he's dead serious about sticking with his number. 

Problem is ... Geno Smith currently wears #7 ... and he's supposed to be the QB of the future in NY. 

Now we're told the jersey situation is not an absolute dealbreaker -- but it will be a "big issue" in negotiations. 

In other words ... No number? More money. 

Stay tuned ....
