NY Jets' Nick Mangold

Pro Bowl Citizen ...

Helps Take Down Car Burglary Ring

8/28/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826_Nick-Mangold_gettyNY Jets stud Nick Mangold is an All-Pro level crime stopper after playing a crucial part in cops busting a roving pack of teenagers, turned alleged car burglars.  

Here's how it went down ... cops say Nick was awakened early Sunday morning at his Chatham, NJ home when his car alarm started blaring. Nick ran to his garage and found the door was open ... so he immediately dialed 911.

Cops rushed to the 'hood and tracked down 5 suspects, just one mile from Mangold's crib. An 18 and a 19-year-old were arrested, along with 3 juveniles -- and the J-E-T-S center might have hit the jackpot with that phone call.

We're told there's been a string of more than 40 car burglaries in the area recently!

So far the suspects have each been charged with 5 counts of burglary, 3 counts of theft and one count of conspiracy to commit a crime.

Darrelle Revis

No More Fists

In Jets Locker Room

8/18/2015 7:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

Darrelle Revis is giving the "ALL CLEAR" on fights between Jets players ... one week after his QB Geno Smith got sucker punched by backup linebacker IK Enemkpali.

We stepped onto Revis Island -- on the island of Manhattan -- after he made a coffee run, and asked if the dust had settled in Gang Green's locker room.

DR did his best to calm the nerves of Jets fans everywhere, but he had less luck calming down a persistent autograph seeker.

Watch the clip ... now Revis knows how NFL receivers feel lining up against him.

Geno Smith

'Can't Feel My Face' ...

After Lions Jab

Geno Smith literally got punched in the face by his old teammate ... and now he's figuratively taking it on the chin during a preseason game against the Detroit Lions.

Lions announcers took a swipe at the injured Jets QB during player intros prior to the game … playing “Can’t Feel My Face” by The Weeknd during his introduction … clearly making fun of his broken jaw.

TMZ Sports broke the story -- IK Enemkpali broke Geno's jaw in a dispute over money.

BSO pointed out the Motor City jab … which we're sure Geno isn’t finding all that funny.

Shawne Merriman

Rex Ryan Is Trolling the Jets

8/13/2015 10:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rex Ryan is 100% sticking it to his old team by signing the player who broke Geno Smith's jaw ... according to former NFL stud Shawne Merriman.

IK Enemkpali was signed by the Buffalo Bills yesterday -- 24 hours after the Jets booted him for tuning up Smith, and when we got former Bills star Merriman at LAX ... he said it's totally gamesmanship on Rex's part.

Check out the clip -- Merriman says Rex fired a "direct shot" to put the Jets on notice.

Tip for Matt Cassel and E.J. Manuel -- guard your grills.

NY Jets Players

Slam Sheldon Richardson

'Fire His Ass!!'

8/1/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0731-sheldon-richardson-getty-01Several members of the NY Jets tell TMZ Sports ... they want Sheldon Richardson OFF THE TEAM -- claiming his speeding arrest with a 12-year-old in the car is simply "disgusting."

We spoke with multiple starters from the Jets who tell us they're well aware of the allegations against Richardson -- that cops say he was clocked at 143 mph in his Bentley on July 14th with a 12-year-old kid and a gun in the car. 

"He shouldn't be back on the team," one NY player tells us ... "It's disgusting to think he'd do something like that with a kid in the car."

Another starting player tells us, "I'm very disappointed in what he did. I have kids, I can't even imagine doing what he did."

Richardson has already been suspended for the first 4 games of the season for failing an unrelated weed test -- but the Jets say they're now looking into this incident as well to see if they need to take action. 

But if he never came back, it clearly wouldn't bother some of the Jets -- one of whom told us, "I never liked him anyway."

Mike Vick Police Report

QB Allegedly Threatens Ex-Business Partner

... Vick Calls B.S.

5/10/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0506_michael_vick_wave_misterz

Mike Vick's ex-business partner claims he's been on the receiving end of some nasty threats from the QB ever since their hairbrush company hit the skids .. and now he's filed a police report against the NFL star. Though Vick's reps say the whole thing is a bunch of crap. 

The man behind the allegations is Tony "Bachelor" Fortune -- who teamed up with Vick to launch WaveMasterz brushes back in 2014. In fact, Vick came on "TMZ Hollywood Sports" and was pumped about the product.

The company was KILLIN' IT back in December ... but Fortune says there was a major rift in their relationship ... and the two have been at war for months. 

Now, we've learned Fortune filed a report with the East Rutherford Police Department ... claiming Vick threatened him back in December and January. 

Cops tell TMZ Sports ... they're aware of the allegations ... but at this point, they're not considering charges against Vick. 

We spoke with Fortune who tells us he's hell-bent on pushing forward with his case against Vick -- calling him an "evil man" who has "no place in society."

A rep for Vick says the allegations are "absolutely false" ... adding," If there was any validity to his claims about Mike regarding their business association, he would have filed a civil suit. But since his claims are false, he's doing everything he can to smear Mike's name, including filing a police report and contacting TMZ."

Jessie James Decker

2nd Baby Wasn't Planned

... Pleasant Surprise!

4/14/2015 6:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

It's tough to cover NY Jets receiver Eric Decker

Apparently, it's even tougher to cover his penis ... 'cause his wife is pregnant with Baby #2 ... and she tells us the kid wasn't exactly planned. 

We got country superstar Jessie James Decker out in NYC this morning ... who's due in September BTW ... and she told us a 2nd kid was always in the cards, but didn't expect it so soon! 

Sort of a pleasant surprise kind of a thing. 

Question is ... do you ever tell that to the kid? We asked Jessie ... she had a pretty good explanation. 

Congrats! 

Antonio Cromartie

I Could Totally Win 'Hell's Kitchen'

... Holla At Me Gordon!

3/23/2015 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0320-chef-cro-TMZSPORTS-01Antonio Cromartie burns in the NFL and the kitchen ... so much so that the NY Jets superstar tells TMZ Sports he wants to be on Gordon Ramsay's "Hell's Kitchen" ... and he thinks he could win.

We spoke to Cromartie -- or "Chef Cro" -- and turns out he takes his smoke game so seriously he's willing to show the world he can out-cook the masses on the hit FOX competition cooking show.

"I want to be on Hell's Kitchen and I think I could win."

Cromartie isn't talking about tossing some fish sticks in the oven either ... it turns out the Pro Bowler's culinary arsenal includes dishes like lemon herb chicken, pork chops, and of course, the staple spaghetti. 

While he normally cooks with a cute little sous chef -- his four-year-old daughter Jersey -- Cromartie says he'd be willing to give up the help and do it alone for the show.

"If Gordon Ramsay ever gave me a shot I would surprise him."

Be careful Antonio ... if you think Rex Ryan was a hard-ass you ain't seen nothing yet.

Brandon Marshall

Racing for His Number

... But With a Catch

3/12/2015 1:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Brandon Marshall has accepted a challenge to race his new teammate for jersey #15, but the veteran wideout has thrown a few conditions on top ... sensing a straight race is not in his favor.

Marshall was recently traded to the New York Jets, where he quickly learned his #15 already belonged to fellow WR Saalim Hakim

Hakim made a video with a challenge: they race, and if Marshall beats him, he can have the number for free. If Hakim wins, Marshall can still wear the number ... but he's gotta fork over $25,000 for it. 

We quickly pause to present you a Tale of the Tape:

Marshall:
 Ran a 4.52 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine in 2006. He's 30-years-old.
Hakim: Reportedly ran a 4.23 40-yard dash and is just 25-years-old.

You see where we're going here ... and apparently so did Marshall.

Saalim tells TMZ Sports that Marshall has accepted the challenge, but Marshall wants to race AND compete in another challenge of his choosing ... which is to remain a mystery. 

Saalim says, "This is all in fun. I've been watching Brandon since I was a kid. I just wanna make him work a little for the number."
