NFL's Shaun Alexander The Secret to NFL Domination ... Marriage!!!

5/2/2016 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

You can't spell dominate with 3 important letters -- I DO -- and it's no coincidence according to NFL legend Shaun Alexander ... who says his stats EXPLODED right after he got married. 

The Seattle Seahawks great was out in Chi-Town for the Draft -- when we asked if marriage actually has an impact on NFL performance (you know, with Russell Wilson about to tie the knot). 

The good news for Seattle ... Alexander says holy matrimony turned him into a virtual SUPER SAIYAN -- 'cause right after he got married in 2002, he became one of the BEST players in pro football. 

Numbers don't lie.

Brandon Marshall Wake Up Raiders Vegas Is Dangerous for NFL Players

4/30/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Brandon Marshall thinks moving the Raiders to Sin City is a commitment to disaster ... saying Vegas will DESTROY young players who won't be able to resist unhealthy temptations. 

We got the NY Jets WR on Capitol Hill -- dude was doing more great work on mental health -- and asked what he thought of the Raiders possibly bolting NorCal for the desert of desire in Las Vegas.

Raiders owner Mark Davis has been vocal about his plans -- and some think it's just a matter of time before it really goes down.

Check out the clip -- Marshall says he doesn't think Vegas is a bad place ... but it's just too much for young people "fresh out of school with a lot of money."

Think about it ... how long would YOU last as a 21-year-old in Vegas with $20 mil in your bank account? 

Yeah, thought so.

EXCLUSIVE

Fred Taylor says he can save Laremy Tunsil ... with the ex-Jacksonville Jaguars running back telling TMZ Sports he wants to mentor the embattled NFL rookie so he doesn't become the next Manziel. 

Taylor spent 10 years with the Jags -- and was inducted into the team's ring of honor ... and after the Tunsil drama at the draft Thursday night, he told us he wants to help the kid. 

"I just reached out to some of my people to see if they knew him," Taylor told us ... "I'd like to mentor him. I'm 10 minutes from the Dolphins facility."

Taylor said playing South Beach can be tough for young players -- but he thinks with the right guidance, Tunsil can be an All-Pro in 2 years. 

"I wouldn't mind trying to keep him on the right path."

Johnny Manziel Buys 300 Shots on Draft Night ... 'This S*** Wicked'

4/29/2016 6:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Johnny Manziel drowned his NFL draft night sorrows in Fireball Thursday night ... ordering up 300 SHOTS at an Ohio bar for a few hundred of his not so closest friends ... and TMZ Sports has the video.

Two years after he was selected in the 1st round ... the unemployed QB hit up Dahlia Bar and Lounge in Columbus right after the 1st round of the '16 draft wrapped up.

You can see in the video Johnny was in a generous mood ... buying 300 shots of whiskey and some Miller Lites for the crowd. 

We're told Johnny spent the night hanging out in the DJ booth with Justin Bieber's tour DJ ... JB had a concert in Columbus on Thursday, but was a no-show at the bar.

Earlier in the day, Manziel was reportedly hangin' at ANOTHER Columbus bar ... watching the draft while sporting a white headband -- the same headband he was rocking later that night. 

FYI, the Browns drafted a WR last night ... if only they had a QB to throw him the ball.

NFL's Robert Nkemdiche Laremy Tunsil Hacker Is 'Evil'

4/29/2016 6:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The person who hacked Laremy Tunsil right before the NFL Draft -- and posted video of the football player hitting a gas mask bong -- is pure evil ... so says Laremy's ex-teammate Robert Nkemdiche

Nkemdiche -- the 29th pick in the NFL Draft -- played with Tunsil at Ole Miss ... and was IN THE ROOM with the lineman when the video came out ... so, we had to ask his thoughts. 

"That's wild dude ... that's evil, whoever did that."

We also asked if he thought Laremy's stepfather was involved -- since the two have been feuding over an alleged domestic violence incident since last year. For the record, Laremy's stepfather has denied any involvement.  

Still, Nkemdiche had some advice for his friend -- "Laremy, brush it off dog ... I love you. I don't care about all that."

Later that night, Nkemdiche was spreading the love ... giving money to a homeless guy he befriended on the street. Cool video. 

Laremy Tunsil Stepfather Denies Leaking Bong Video ... 'Wasn't Me'

4/28/2016 6:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428_Laremy-Tunsil_gettyLaremy Tunsil's stepfather tells TMZ Sports ... he is NOT the person who hacked the football star's Twitter account and published a video of Laremy hitting a bong.

FYI -- the video, showing Laremy hitting a gas mask bong, was released on Laremy's own page just as the NFL Draft started. Laremy was expected to be a top 10 pick. Tunsil's agent has said he was hacked. 

Since Laremy is currently locked in a nasty legal war with his stepfather Lindsey Miller -- with the two sides filing domestic violence charges against each other last year -- most people began pointing the finger at him. 

But Miller tells us he absolutely denies having ANY involvement in the video leak. 

"I don't know nothing about no video. I'm not even watching the draft."

Miller says he's upset about being accused -- and adds, "I was a Red Cross volunteer of the year. I would never do anything like this."

Laremy was eventually drafted by the Dolphins with the 13th overall pick ... but it's still a huge slide.

EXCLUSIVE

Wanna REALLY know about somebody? Talk to their roommate ... 

Which is why we spoke with the guy who lived with Carson Wentz -- the QB's ex-college teammate Jedre Cyr ... who says Carson is so squeaky clean, he'd let him date his sister! 

Wentz roomed up with Cyr (fullback) during their time on the football team at North Dakota State -- and was raving about how Wentz might be the biggest choir boy he's ever met. 

"As in the words of our offensive coordinator, he's not the kind of guy you're going to see out at the bar having a drink and slapping a girl's ass ... he's not Johnny Manziel."
