Johnny Manziel Another Mysterious Car Wreck

6/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0621_johnny_manziel_crash_car_launchMore troubling photos involving Johnny Manziel -- a car owned by the ex-NFL star was clearly involved in a bad accident in Dallas ... with the driver's side completely smashed in. 

TMZ Sports obtained pics of Manziel's 2015 Nissan GTR -- the same car he was driving during his alleged domestic incident with his ex-GF, Colleen Crowley, last year in Ohio. 

Multiple sources tell us the car appeared Monday night at a Dallas apartment complex where Manziel is supposedly staying ... looking like it had been T-boned. You can see in the pics the driver's side airbag was deployed. We've confirmed the car is still registered to Manziel.

We don't know how it happened, who was driving, or if Manziel was even in the car at the time. Cops tell us they have no record of a crash involving Manziel. We're trying to find answers. 

We've reached out to Johnny's rep and Johnny himself -- but so far, no word back from either. 

Just a few months ago, Manziel was involved in another bad accident on the Sunset Strip -- when a Mercedes he was in crashed into a pole. He was unscathed in the wreck. 

NFL's Davone Bess Held Himself at Knifepoint ... Cops Sicced Dog On Him

0621-davone-bess-mug-shot-TMZ-SPORTS-02More troubling details from the arrest of ex-NFL wide receiver Davone Bess -- now cops say he held a knife to his own throat ... and a K9 unit was used to take him into custody. 

As we previously reported, 30-year-old Bess fled from cops during a routine traffic stop in Arizona early Monday morning. 

Cops tell us ... as they pursued Bess he rolled down his window and began making gestures with his hand shaped like a gun and motioning that he was shooting the officer.

Bess hightailed it away from officers in his Mercedes -- but was tracked down at his home. 

Inside his residence, cops say Bess would go to the window and front door -- flashing a knife to cops ... and occasionally holding it up to his own throat. 

Eventually, cops decided they needed to take action. 

"For Bess’ own safety it was decided to get him in custody as quickly and safely as possible. At this point a police K-9 was released and the K-9 bit Bess on the left forearm just inside the front door of the residence," cops say.

"Bess was then taken into custody and transported to a local hospital for the dog bite and a mental evaluation." 

He was later booked on several accounts -- and is still in police custody.

Dez Bryant No Hazing Ezekiel Elliott 'We Need His Mind To Be Right'

6/21/2016 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Don't expect to see Ezekiel Elliott wearing a pink tutu on the Dallas Cowboys practice field this fall ... 'cause Dez Bryant says EE is totally in the clear when it comes to the subject of rookie hazing.

We got Bryant at LAX (walking with ZERO limp, rejoice Dallas fans) and asked him if he was looking forward to making Elliott pony up some major cash for the rookie hazing dinner.

It's an interesting question for Bryant ... if you remember he famously rejected aspects of hazing when he was a rookie ... refusing to carry pads for Cowboys veterans back in 2010.

Elliott won't have to go through it either according to Dez ... who told our guy EE is off the hook for two reasons ... the Cowboys don't haze anymore ... and Elliott is too important to be mentally terrorized.

Check out the clip -- and imagine what Elliott would've looked like in that tutu.

NFL's Dashon Goldson I Respect Ayesha But I Don't Want My Lady Tweeting Like That!

6/18/2016 12:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It might be time for Steph Curry to have a Twitter boundaries talk with wife -- at least according to NFL safety Dashon Goldson who says that's what he would do if his lady pulled an Ayesha. 

Dashon -- who spent 9 years in the NFL -- says he likes that Ayesha does her thing on social media ... but if he was in Steph's shoes, he'd try to explain why calling out the NBA is a HUGE distraction during the NBA playoffs. 

BTW, Goldson was leaving Barney's in Bev Hills where he dropped $5k on his dad for Father's Day, which is THIS SUNDAY.

Go get your dad a gift -- consider this your warning. 

Johnny Manziel Goodbye Cleveland 'Sold' Sign on Suburban Crib

6/17/2016 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0617-johnny-manziel-house-sold-TMZ-SPORTS-02Johnny Manziel just cut his last tie to the city of Cleveland ... cause there's a "SOLD" sign on the front of his nice suburban home, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Manziel bought the 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom home -- in a private golf course community -- back in May 2015 ... one year after the Browns selected the QB in the 1st round of the NFL Draft. 

He paid $438k for the place ... but after the Browns cut his ass, he put it on the market for $489k hoping to turn a $50k profit. 

Good news for Johnny ... he got a bite. We're told the deal isn't "officially" done but it's expected to close soon. In fact, the realtor's so confident, there's already a "sold" sign on the front lawn. 

No word on who bought the place or how much they paid -- but here's some advice ... get the place deep-cleaned before you move in. 


NFL's Chris Johnson I Don't Smoke Weed ... 'I'm Drug-Free'

6/17/2016 7:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NFL superstar Chris Johnson says he's not on the same page as Eugene Monroe -- telling TMZ Sports he does NOT support marijuana for pain treatment ... claiming, "I'm drug-free."

The running back was out at Le Jardin in Hollywood Thursday night -- when we asked about Monroe -- who implied he was just cut from the Baltimore Ravens over his pro-pot stance. 

Johnson is pretty adamant he ain't with the green stuff -- but he IS with a pretty damn good rapper. 

Check out the clip ... CJ's friend, Ballie Ball, takes over the clip and spits a verse -- and it's pretty good!! 

Johnny Manziel Nightclub Fight Victim Lawyers Up ... Planning Lawsuit

6/17/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0616_johnny_maniel_tmzJohnny Manziel's got more drama heading his way ... the guy he fought in a Vegas nightclub last month has lawyered up and is gearing up for a lawsuit, TMZ Sports has learned. 

We broke the story ... the ex-NFL star was booted from Jewel Nightclub at the Aria hotel on May 20th after getting violent with another clubgoer. 

Witnesses have said Manziel was pushed while the crowd was going crazy during a surprise performance by Drake -- and, during the madness, Manziel turned and slugged a guy.

There's video showing Manziel locked up with the guy inside the club -- but hard to see if Johnny threw a punch. 

We're told the victim claims he was injured during the fracas -- and is planning to sue Manziel to cover his medical costs at the very least.

Manziel's lawyers are definitely staying busy -- he's also being sued for allegedly trashing a home in the Hollywood Hills ... and is in a beef with a luxury car rental company over a wrecked Mercedes

Von Miller Broncos Teammates Got His Back 'No Hard Feelings' On Possible Holdout

6/17/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0616-von-miller-ronnie-hillman-tmzMultiple players on the Denver Broncos tell us ... they're NOT upset at Von Miller for threatening to sit out the 2016 season ... telling TMZ Sports it's all a part of the business. 

After Miller declared there was "no chance" he would play in 2016 without a brand new contract -- we spoke with Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman who told us he understands Von's situation. 

"It's between him and the Broncos," Hillman says .... "I respect him as a teammate. Everyone does. No one is mad. We all hope he can get his deal done and get back."

And he ain't the only player who feels that way ... we also spoke with another prominent player who didn't want to be named who said, "He's the best defensive player in the league and should get paid for it."

The player added, "The players are 100% on Von's side."

Von Miller 'No Chance' I'll Play in 2016 Under Franchise Tag

6/16/2016 9:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0616-von-miller-instagramVon Miller is apparently threatening to sit out the 2016 season if he can't get a new deal done with the Denver Broncos

Miller just posted on Instagram -- "'I love my Teammates, Coaches, and My Fans' but there is 'No Chance' I play the 2016 season under the Franchise tag."

The Broncos used the franchise tag on Miller back in March -- which means he'd make the average of the top-salaries of his position for the year ... which is roughly $14 mil. 

But Von wants more ... WAY MORE ... recently shutting down a 6-year $114 million deal with $40 mil guaranteed.

And if he doesn't get it ... Von says straight up -- he ain't playin'.

It's a much different stance than he took during an interview that surfaced Wednesday with Chelsea Handler -- in which he stated he would NOT sit out the season. 

Lawrence Taylor Joe Theismann Should Thank Me ... For Snapping His Leg!

6/15/2016 9:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawrence Taylor says he did Joe Theismann a HUGE FAVOR by snapping the QB's leg back in 1985 ... and he's dead serious about it.

LT was speaking at the Bronko Nagurski Charlotte TD Club Luncheon in North Carolina on Tuesday when he was asked how the incident impacted his life.  

Instead, LT explained how it made Joe's life WAY BETTER. 

He also made fun of the Washington Redskins quarterback for the way he "screamed like a girl" at the time of the injury. 


BTW, here's the video of the break. Enjoy ... 

Richard Sherman's Family We Love Nate Robinson ... Hope He Makes the Seahawks!

6/14/2016 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Richard Sherman's family is awesome! 

We got the NFL star's mom, Beverly, and his brother, Branton, out in L.A. -- where his mother is trying to launch her acting career ... and they couldn't have been nicer. 

Turns out, they're really big fans of NBA star Nate Robinson -- a Seattle native -- and hope his tryout with the Seahawks went well. 

As we previously reported, Nate -- who played college football at the Univ. of Washington -- worked out with the team and is hoping to land a spot as a defensive back. 

"He'll be a good addition to the L.O.B." Branton said. 

They also raved about Russell Wilson and Ciara -- and while they haven't been invited to the wedding, they LOVE the couple and wish them nothing but the best. 

Eric Dickerson Vegas Isn't Dangerous for NFL Players ... 'You Can Get In Trouble Anywhere'

6/14/2016 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Las Vegas is not a death trap for NFL players ... so says Eric Dickerson who says concerns that pro athletes would go overboard in Sin City is a bunch of BS. 

We were talking to Dickerson about the Raiders -- and Brandon Marshall's concern that Vegas would be a dangerous place to young NFL players to work, considering they're "fresh out of school with a lot of money."

But at E.D.'s charity golf tournament Monday, he told us Brandon's theory doesn't hold up -- saying EVERY city has its temptations ... and it's up to the players to act like pros. 

Bottom line -- E.D. likes the move ... and says if the Silver and Black do relocate, expect Vegas to host a Super Bowl in the near future.

0613-ben-roethlisberger-donald-trump-GETTY-TMZ-01Ben Roethlisberger says he will NOT join Team Trump -- at least, not publicly ... despite Donald's insistence that the NFL quarterback is "with us 100 percent."

While at a rally in Pittsburgh on Saturday, Trump said Roethlisberger was among a number of sports stars who supported his campaign and hoped #7 would join him at the Republican National Convention in July. 

But Big Ben says it ain't gonna happen ... telling Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he will neither endorse nor speak on behalf of Trump because "politics are not his thing."

Ben did acknowledge Trump is an "acquaintance" -- they've golfed together and spoken several times over the years.
