Raiders Owner Mark Davis Knows Vegas Can Be Trouble ... We'll Protect Our Players

3/27/2017 12:01 PM PDT
Breaking News

Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis says he's already had talks with team officials about the dangers of Sin City and plans to work with players to keep them out of trouble in their new home. 

Moments after the Raiders got team owner approval to move from Oakland to Vegas, Mark spoke with reporters, including FOX 11's Liz Habib ... and was asked about Brandon Marshall's concerns with an NFL team in Vegas. 

The NY Giants WR previously told TMZ Sports the idea of young guys with lots of money in Vegas sounds like a bad idea. 

Davis says he's talked about it with other Raiders honchos and said, "There are things that we'll be doing" to help protect his guys. 

Davis was also asked if his legendary father, Al Davis, liked Las Vegas and why -- his answer is pretty funny.

3/27/2017 10:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327-trevone-boykin-getty-02Things just went from bad to worse for Trevone Boykin ... his latest arrest may have triggered a probation violation that could land him behind bars for up to a year.

The Seahawks QB is still on probation from his San Antonio bar fight arrest from 2015 -- the terms of which required him to stay out of trouble.  

But now that he's been arrested for public intoxication and drug possession in Dallas, prosecutors tell TMZ Sports they're looking into whether Boykin violated his probation. 

If prosecutors move forward to revoke his probation, officials say he faces up to 1 year in Bexar County Jail and up to a $4,000 fine. 

As we previously reported, Boykin was arrested on Dec. 31st, 2015 ... but didn't strike a plea deal until June 2016.

EXCLUSIVE

0327-pacman-jones-gettyPacman Jones is digging in ... pleading not guilty in his crazy incident at a Cincinnati hotel -- the same incident when he was caught on tape wishing death on a police officer.

The Bengals star was arrested on January 3 for allegedly roughing up a security guard. He was later charged with obstructing official business, disorderly conduct, assault and harassment with a bodily substance for allegedly spitting on a nurse who was trying to take his blood.

The spit charge was dismissed last week -- and now we've learned Jones has pled not guilty to the remaining charges. 

It's a big deal for Jones -- if he's convicted on all counts, he faces up to 8 months in jail. He's due back in court next month.

Of course, Jones could not have been more rude to police during the arrest -- telling one of the officer to "suck my d*ck."

Josh Gordon Proves He's Still An Athletic Freak ... With Insane Dunk Show

3/27/2017 7:54 AM PDT

Josh Gordon wants the whole world -- mainly NFL GMs -- to know he's still a freak athlete, and he's proving it using a sport he doesn't even play.

Gordon is still waiting to be reinstated by the NFL, but is obviously staying in shape, and showed it off with a dazzling array of aerial rim rockers that he posted to social media.

There are reports the Browns will either trade or release Gordon, meaning he'll have to prove to some other team he's still got the tools to dominate.

Either that, or he's trying to make the Lakers. Which seems pretty possible, actually.

EXCLUSIVE

Saints Hall of Famer Willie Roaf says he's all for Johnny Manziel taking his talents to the Bayou ... as long as he's ready for the nonstop party that is New Orleans.

There are reports Manziel has been in contact with Saints coach Sean Payton recently, leading some to wonder if there are plans for JM to be the heir apparent to Drew Brees.

Roaf was an 11-time Pro Bowler for the Saints, and when we talked to him about Manziel possibly ending up there, Roaf was in favor of the second chance, but not without warning.

"I think the kid is still young. He has a lot of potential. Hopefully he has his issues under control ... New Orleans is a tough city, it's a lotta nightlife, a lotta drinking."

Roaf goes on to say he believes Johnny can be successful as a Saint, as long as the staff keeps a tight leash on him.

As for what Willie is doing these days -- he told us all about the AWESOME company he's starting with some fellow NFL greats now that their playing days are over.

To be clear, Manning added, "I have no interest in getting into the political world" ... but said he does want to continue to serve and give back to the communities. 

He added, "Be careful what you believe."

Here's the video (go to the 4:00 mark).

Brett Favre I Know I Can Play At NFL Level But I Don't Wanna Get Hit Anymore!

3/23/2017 11:52 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

47-year-old Brett Favre says he KNOWS he still has the arm to compete in the NFL ... but he just doesn't wanna get hit anymore.

The ex-NFL star says he's flattered by ATL Falcons CB Robert Alford -- who strongly feels Favre could make a comeback after their workout in Louisiana this week ... but it ain't happening.

"I could still make the throws," Favre tells TMZ Sports ... "If they promise they won't hit me, I'll play."

There's more ... Favre says he's far more concerned about the longterm effects of concussions and is invested in multiple companies -- including Prevacus and Brock USA -- in the hopes of preventing and treating brain injuries.

Favre says he feels it's his "duty" to try and make the game better and safer for future NFL players and he's touring around with Sqor Sports in hopes of doing just that.

But, when it comes to his own family members playing the game he loves, Brett says he would "strongly discourage" his grandsons from playing football based on the medical information he has today.

"Yeah, you may make a good salary ... but what happens in the end if you have enough concussions? It may be a tragic end."
