Raiders Owner Would You Sign Manziel? ... 'Ask Reggie'

2/6/2016 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

We saw Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis out in San Fran Friday -- and we hit him with two quick questions. 

1) You really moving the team to Vegas? 

2) Would you ever consider taking a chance on Johnny Manziel?

Despite the fact he's the big boss, Mark told us simply, "Ask Reggie!" 

Of course, he's talking about Reggie McKenzie, the Raiders GM. 

It's interesting that Davis didn't flat out say 'No' -- similar to Stephen Jones' "No comment" earlier in the day. 

Seems like the guys might be keeping the door open in case Johnny can get his life together. 

BTW, Davis is such a nice guy ... he even took a pic with a 49ers fan!

2/5/2016 10:44 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

More hilariousness from Marshawn Lynch courtesy of his former teammate Justin Forsett -- who introduced Beast Mode to Periscope Thursday night ... and even got the RB to drop a live "deez nutz" joke. 

Forsett was Periscoping from Marshawn's new Beast Mode store in Oakland when #24 came into the shot and tried to figure out what the hell Forsett was doing. 

The clip is hilarious ... once Forsett explains that Marshawn is streaming out live to hundreds of people, Lynch totally comes out of his shell. 

Among the highlights ... 

-- Marshawn says his shop is safe for white people. 

-- The guys quote "Friday." 

-- "Deez nutz."

Just watch already.

Turns out ... Hines is all about it!

Breaking News

0204-johnny-manziel-tmz-03Johnny Manziel's agent has just officially cut ties with the embattled QB -- with Erik Burkhardt telling Adam Schefter he feels the relationship has reached the point of no return. 

"It is with deep regret that, after several emotional and very personal discussions with his family, his doctors, and my client himself, I have made the decision to terminate my professional relationship with Johnny Manziel."

"Though I will remain a friend and Johnny supporter and he knows I have worked tirelessly to arrange a number of professional options for him to continue to pursue, it has become painfully obvious that his future rests solely in his own hands."

"His family and I have gone to great lengths to outline the steps we feel he must take to get his life in order."

"Accountability is the foundation of any relationship and without it, the function of my work is counterproductive. I truly wish the best for Johnny and sincerely hope he can, and will, find the kind of peace and happiness he deserves."

The move comes one day after cops released a police report which shows Manziel's ex-GF, Colleen Crowley, accused him of striking her several times and threatening to kill them during an argument last weekend. 

For his part, Manziel has DENIED all of Crowley's allegations and cops say he will NOT be charged with a crime.

2/5/2016 6:26 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jameis Winston says he's ready to hit the runway ... telling TMZ Sports he's down for a second career in modeling -- but he'll have to shed a few lbs first!

Jameis is pretty funny in the clip -- saying his GF, Breion, is the real hero 'cause she took the pic -- but noting that he's REALLY DOWN to pose for pay ... noting, "I'm very dapper!"

Winston also says he's interested in acting -- and even has a message for one of the most powerful guys in Hollywood ... LeBron James


Tony Gonzalez Jock Blocks Travis Kelce Dating Show 'Doesn't He Have A Girlfriend?'

2/5/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

File This Under: Really, Bro?

Tony Gonzalez might have just ruined Travis Kelce's chances to bang thirsty reality show chicks ... by uttering the words no dude on a dating show wants to hear ... "doesn't he have a girlfriend?"

Gonzalez was out enjoying the Super Bowl 50 festivities when we asked him his thoughts on his buddy -- Chiefs TE Travis Kelce -- getting his own dating reality show on E!.

It's a pretty big deal ... the show "Catching Kelce" will document the young stud as he invites 50 women from all 50 states to take their shot with the Pro Bowler ... and we're told that some of the women have yet to be cast.

The guys out there won't believe this clip ... Gonzalez OBLITERATES the bro code ... inadvertently diming out his pal, and seriously making us wonder if he's ever been anyone's wingman.

BTW, it's unclear if Kelce actually does have a GF ... but we're sure of one thing ... WTF TONY!?

2/4/2016 11:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bengals WR Marvin Jones says it's all love between his team and the 2 players who cost them a playoff win ... saying when it comes to Vontaze Burfict and Pacman Jones -- "people make mistakes."

Of course, the duo has been under fire for the late unsportsmanlike conduct penalties against the Steelers that many believe cost the Bengals their first playoff win in forever. 

But Jones says it's all water under the bridge.

Carson Palmer's teammates still have his back -- especially superstar defensive end Calais Campbell -- who says the QB is still a WARRIOR who just had one bad day at the office. 

Palmer got all sorts of heat after throwing 4 picks in the NFC championship game -- but clearly, his teammates aren't throwing him under the bus. 

But the best part of this encounter is when the 6'8" 310 pounder admitted he tried STAND-UP COMEDY a few years ago! 

Turns out his brother Jared Quay is a professional comic -- and says he's trying to get Calais to get back onstage. Question is ... will he do it? Check out the clip. 

New Browns Coach Manziel's Not My Problem Right Now

2/4/2016 6:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ Sports spoke with Browns head coach Hue Jackson Wednesday night -- and asked him straight up how he feels about Johnny Manziel -- and his response, "I want to focus on the positive not the negative."


Jackson was at Jay Glazer's Glazer Palooza charity event -- to raise money for Jay's MVP organization for military vets -- when we asked about Manziel's future with the team and in the NFL. 

"Johnny Manziel has to determine that, not me." 

The Browns will reportedly drop Johnny in March -- and judging from this clip, Jackson ain't losing any sleep over it.

NFL's Joseph Randle Arrest Video 'This Is the End of My Career'

2/3/2016 12:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ex-NFL running back Joseph Randle knew the impact his latest arrest would have on his future -- telling the Irving PD, "This is the end of my career."

TMZ Sports obtained footage from Feb. 1st -- the night Randle was taken into custody in Texas on a speeding warrant. Randle had appeared at his baby mama's house -- but wasn't welcome and cops were called. 

When they arrived ... Randle tried to explain why he was there in the first place ... but he makes little sense. 

Eventually, cops ran Randle's info and saw the warrant -- and were instructed to take him into custody. 

As police put Randle in cuffs, he knew he would be back in the news. 

"They're going to put this all over the place ... 'Randle arrested again.'"

Randle has since been released from custody. So far, no word on when he's due back in court. 


Vernon Davis Surprises Broncos Fan in Hospital ... 'I'm Speechless!'

2/3/2016 8:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Awesome moment Tuesday courtesy of Vernon Davis -- when he surprised a hardcore Broncos fan at a Children's Hospital near the Super Bowl ... and the fan was so excited, he could barely talk! 

It all went down at Stanford Children's Health -- where Alex -- an 18-year-old Broncos fan -- has been courageously battling cancer and heart problems since he was 5 years old. 

We're told the hospital tweeted out to several Broncos players asking if anyone could stop by -- and lo and behold, the tweets got to Vernon's people.

The tight end immediately cleared his schedule and made plans to go to the hospital -- what ensued was a pretty special moment. 

We spoke with a rep for the hospital who tells us the two talked about everything from the Super Bowl to what Peyton Manning is like in real life. The two also took pics together and Vernon signed a football. 

In the end, we're told the experience was a "dream come true" for Alex. 

Pretty cool.
