NY Jets Chris Herndon DUI Crash Video Shows Frightening Wreckage

7/17/2018 9:51 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

NY Jets rookie tight end Chris Herndon is VERY lucky to be alive -- and lucky he didn't kill anyone -- because the newly obtained video of his DUI crash is terrifying. 

TMZ Sports got the police body cam footage showing the moment cops arrived to the I-80 highway in Jersey on June 2 ... after Herndon smashed into another vehicle and flipped his car. 

You can see Herndon's flipped 2018 Nissan Armada -- which witnesses say was driving around 100 mph when he struck a Toyota towing a flatbed trailer. 

Miraculously, both Herndon and the other driver -- a 76-year-old man -- escaped without any major injuries. 

Cops suspected 22-year-old Herndon was drunk and administered a field sobriety test -- which he bombed.

Herndon claimed he only had 2 cups of wine before getting behind the wheel. He blew a .14 ... nearly twice the legal limit. 

The former University of Miami player was eventually arrested and charged with DUI. He's due in court next month. 

Sam Darnold No Hazing For Rookie QB ... Teammate Says

6/27/2018 3:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There will be no pranks allowed on New York Jets savior Sam Darnold ... his teammate Buster Skrine says.

As for why ... Skrine seems conflicted on that part ... telling TMZ Sports -- on one side, the former USC QB is too good of a dude ... but, on the other, the NFL REALLY frowns upon doing that.

Still ... the Jets corner says there will be SOME sort of initiation for the No. 3 pick ... and it might involve a little bit of singing for the team in training camp.

Translation ... the season won't even have officially started and Sam will already be compared to Tom Brady.

NY Jets CEO Screw The NFL's Anthem Rule ... I'll Pay The Fines!!

5/23/2018 2:43 PM PDT
Breaking News

NY Jets chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson says to hell with the NFL's new policy on restricting anthem protests ... and vows to pay  the fines HIMSELF if his players kneel!

"If somebody [on the Jets] takes a knee, that fine will be borne by the organization, by me, not the players," Christopher told Newsday.

"There will be no club fines or suspensions or any sort of repercussions. If the team gets fined, that's just something I'll have to bear."

FYI, Christopher is the brother of team owner Woody Johnson -- who is currently serving as the U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, after being nominated by President Trump

Johnson added that while he prefers his players stand, he says it's not his nor the league's place "to put restrictions on the speech of our players."

The policy was shredded by critics almost immediately after it was announced ... but it appears Johnson and the Jets have found a workaround.

EXCLUSIVE

Check this out ... #1, #2 and #3 all hanging together at LAX and TMZ Sports has the video!!

NY Giants rookie Saquon Barkley -- along with Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold -- all touched down at LAX for the NFLPA Rookie Premiere event ... and they all seemed pretty stoked to reunite! 

Barkley and Mayfield hugged it out ... and Saquon actually carpooled with Darnold (Jets and Giants mingling?!). 

Of course, Saquon couldn't have been nicer -- complimenting his new NY rival ... even saying he's rooting for him!

We also asked Barkley about Eric Dickerson's recent comments -- that he's hoping Barkley will NOT break his rookie rushing record, and Saquon even handled that with 100% class. 

"I don't care for that," Barkley said about breaking the record ... "I wanna win championships."

Curtis Martin Sam Darnold Will Succeed In NYC ... If He Does This

5/13/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sam Darnold should thank his lucky stars ... New York Jets legend Curtis Martin is about to give the team's newest QB a lesson on how to succeed under the bright lights of the Big Apple.

Martin is the Jets all-time leading rusher and a member of the NFL Hall of Fame, so when we got him in NY we wanted to know if he had any advice for Darnold, who was drafted #3 by the team last month.

Curtis dropped some knowledge on Sam ... and we're hoping Darnold listens, because we know he wouldn't be the first player to crumble under the pressure of playing in the city that never sleeps.

NY Jets' Robby Anderson Off the Hook In Wife-Banging Speeding Arrest

4/3/2018 7:53 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Wow. Wow. Wow. 

Robby Anderson -- the guy who allegedly told a cop he was going to find his wife and bang her out of spite -- is essentially off the hook in his speeding case ... and all he had to do was pay a fine!!!

Remember, the NY Jets stud WR was arrested in Florida back in January after cops say he was doing 105 mph in a 45 mph -- and during the stop, he went completely nuclear on the arresting officer. 

"He was going to find my wife, f*ck her and nut in her eye," the officer wrote in his arrest report. 

Anderson was initially hit with 9 charges including 3 felonies (harming a public servant, fleeing and eluding and reckless speeding) and faced up to 15 YEARS in prison!!!!

But now, the Florida State Attorney's office tells TMZ Sports ... prosecutors have declined to move forward with ANY of the felony charges and the reckless speeding charge was downgraded to a misdemeanor. 

And get this ... court records show Anderson was only ordered to pay a fine in the misdemeanor case (which he did) ... and it appears the case is essentially closed. 

It's good news for Anderson -- but he could still be punished by the NFL if league officials find he violated the personal conduct policy. 

Stay tuned ... 

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

3/19/2018 1:09 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

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!

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

EXCLUSIVE

"K-A-R-M-A."

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.'

NY Congressman Diddy Should Buy the Jets

1/21/2018 12:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Trying to buy the Panthers is great and all, but New York congressman Gregory Meeks is lobbying for Diddy to focus his efforts on a MUCH needier squad -- the Jets!!

"Wish he was looking at a New York team ... maybe he could turn the Jets around," Meeks told TMZ Sports in D.C.

Don't get it twisted -- Meeks thinks it's dope Puff is trying to diversify ownership in pro sports ... saying it's a win "for all America." 

That said, the DNC rep didn't make any bones about where his allegiances lie ... and clearly wants Diddy to make a play for Gang Green.

The NY Giants ... not so much.

Breaking News

1:45 PM PT -- Anderson has been released from Broward County Jail on $7,200 bond.

3:20 PM PT-- Anderson was arrested at gunpoint, as captured on video by witness Spencer Blount.

The footage is only a few seconds long, but shows Anderson lying face first on the ground while the officer shouts orders at him from behind, gun drawn.

Here's what NY Jets WR Robby Anderson allegedly told a police officer while he was being arrested for going 105 in 45, according to the officer:

"He was going to find my wife, f*ck her and nut in her eye."

It's all described in the police report obtained by TMZ Sports.

According to the Sunrise Police Dept. in Florida, an officer clocked Anderson in his Jaguar going 105 mph in a 45 mph zone early Friday morning. 

The officer says Anderson was driving like a maniac -- "all over the roadway and failed to maintain a single lane."

When the cop eventually got Anderson to pull over, Robby refused to cooperate -- saying he wanted to speak with his lawyer right away and physically resisted when the cops tried to put him in the squad car. 

But the craziest part of the story ... when Anderson was being transported to the police dept., the police report says, "that when he got out he was going to find my wife, f*ck her and nut in her eye."

"He continued to make other verbal threats towards my family. Based on his statements it was clear that he intended to sexually assault my wife."

"He also began to brag about how much money he has and how all I was doing was trying to do is 'Ruin his fun.'"

Anderson is facing 9 total charges including resisting arrest, reckless driving, speeding and something called, "harm public servant or family."

According to his booking sheet, Anderson is listed at 6'3", 160 lbs. 

24-year-old Anderson was a STUD with the Jets in 2017 -- hauling in 63 catches for 941 yards and 7 TDs.

'BAMA!!!

TMZ Sports asked the N.Y. Jets stud whether the best college football team can beat the NFL's worst team ... and Buster says they're 2 totally different beasts in favor of the Browns.

Speaking of the Browns' winless season, Skrine hopes Jets fans NEVER plan a parade for locking the No. 1 overall pick like they did in Cleveland.

BONUS -- Skrine says he's the most fashionable guy in sports ... and he lets his boots do the talking.

Slaughterhouse rapper Joell Ortiz thinks Ryan Fitzpatrick sucks sooo bad, when we told him Fitz was getting the start vs. his Jets this Sunday, this was his reaction ... 

"I WILL TAKE THE FREE WIN!!!" 

Joell tells TMZ Sports he didn't even like Fitz when he was low-key ballin' for NY ... so he can't wait to watch the destruction, now that a Jameis Winston injury is forcing the QB under center for the Bucs.

Keyshawn Johnson: Paternity Test's In ... I'm Not Your Baby Daddy!

10/5/2017 1:29 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Keyshawn Johnson had his own real-life Maury Povich moment after a woman claimed he fathered her 4-month-old kid and ... 

KEY ... YOU ARE NOT THE FATHER!!! 

We broke the story, a 35-year-old woman filed court docs claiming Key knocked her up back in 2016 -- right around the time Johnson's wife filed for divorce. The woman wanted child support. 

But Key's attorney Aja Mann tells TMZ Sports the results are in and the test proves Key's not the daddy. 

"Mr. Johnson's only recourse was to submit to the orders of the Court, which included taking a paternity test to dispute these false accusations and the results of course came back negative."

Mann continues, "As he stated before, and states now, Mr. Johnson is not the biological father of this woman's 4 month old child."

"While unfortunate, Mr. Johnson is not the first celebrity to be subjected to false accusations, and he will certainly not be the last."
