John Kasich I'm a Big Sam Darnold Fan But IDK If Browns Pick Him

3/22/2018 8:30 AM PDT

It's a good thing John Kasich ain't gonna be in the Browns' war room at the draft next month ... 'cause as much as he loves Sam Darnold, the Ohio Gov. says he has no clue if he's the guy for Cleveland.

TMZ Sports spoke with Kasich -- our unofficial Ohio sports analyst -- about who the Browns should take with the No. 1 overall pick ... and he says the experts have him 2nd-guessing his love for the USC star.

BTW -- Darnold CRUSHED his pro day (in the rain!!) on Wednesday ... and now there's buzz he's a lock for the top pick.

But not for Kasich ... he breaks down his conundrum, but tells us one pick he DID actually get right.

We broke the story ... Jones was busted for felony vandalism after a bloody, naked struggle with his brother at a downtown L.A. apartment. We're told Zay smashed a hole in a balcony window on the 30th floor of the apartment ... and his brother Cayleb was fighting to save him from jumping.

Zay -- a 2nd round draft pick in 2017 -- was released from custody earlier this morning. He's due in court next month.

3/21/2018 11:56 AM PDT

Odell Beckham Jr. made one hell of an entrance at the Sterling Shepard-Chanel Iman wedding reception, doing what he does best -- DANCING HIS ASS OFF.

OBJ and Shepard's other groomsmen tore through the wedding hall with Rich the Kid's "New Freezer" bumpin' ... and broke out the shoot dance to end all shoot dances -- fist-pumpin' and leg-kickin' with extra sauce for Sterling's big day!!

Giants WR Roger Lewis and Miami WR Kenny Stills (Shep's OU teammate) weren't half bad -- but we gotta give Odell the nod for performance of the night ... only 'cause Eli wasn't around to steal the show.

In the video, the emcee said the party was just getting started ... so we can only imagine how turnt OBJ and co. got by night's end.

Congrats, Sterling and Chanel!

Of course, the 2 health freaks used it as an opportunity to show off their guns. (Who says ya need meat to be ripped?)

The bros that garden together ... 

Aaron Hernandez Sexuality Didn't Make Him a Killer ... Says Marco Rubio

3/21/2018 6:48 AM PDT

Aaron Hernandez's self-hate for his alleged gay secret is NOT why he turned violent -- so says Marco Rubio.

We got the Florida senator out on Capitol Hill ... and asked what he made of the recent "Aaron Hernandez Uncovered" documentary, since he and Hernandez share the same alma mater (Florida).

Marco told TMZ Sports he hasn't had the chance to watch the whole thing, but with that said -- "I don't think that's relevant to killing somebody."

That "somebody" was Odin Lloyd ... a man some law enforcement officials believe Hernandez murdered in 2013 because he knew about Hernandez's sexuality.

Rubio clearly ain't buying that ... but on a related note, told us he sees positive momentum for gay athletes and politics having the platform to come out.

Martin has been charged with 4 felonies -- 4 counts of making criminal threats. He's also been charged with 1 misdemeanor for carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle.   

Martin has pled not guilty.

The surrender follows a bizarre incident on February 23, where Martin posted a photo of a shotgun and ammo with the message, "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge."

According to the docs, the criminal threats were made against the San Diego Chargers' Mike Pouncey, and Martin's former Dolphins teammate Richie Incognito ... as well as 2 of his old high school teammates at Harvard Westlake. The school was put on lockdown the day Martin posted the shotgun pic.

Prosecutors say Martin faces up to 6 years in prison if convicted.

"It was a really special moment to get love and respect from an icon like LeBron James, somebody that I've been a fan of since I was 12 years old ... it was really special." Thomas says.

J.T. also points out it was a great way to cap off his career ... 'cause he was was first introduced to Cleveland fans as a rookie when the Cavs were in the Finals in 2007.

Terrell Owens ain't even a little intimidated by Iggy Azalea's pyromaniac past ... saying he'd risk his entire wardrobe for a shot with the rap star.

You probably heard -- on Monday, Iggy admitted to torching ALL of Nick Young's designer clothes after she caught her ex-fiance slippin' ... and seemed to be pretty happy about it.

We asked T.O. about it when we got him in L.A later that night ... and instead of coming down on Iggy, he asked us, "Is she single?"

Your move, Iggy.

The Instagram post -- a photo of a shotgun with shells -- said ... "When you're a bully victim & a coward your options are suicide, or revenge."

Bart Scott Jets Made Great Trade w/ Colts Gotta Draft Premiere QB

3/19/2018 1:09 PM PDT

The Jets made a helluva great trade jumping up 3 spots in the NFL Draft ... guaranteeing they get a top QB, this according to former Jets star LB Bart Scott.

Gang Green made the blockbuster move over the weekend -- sending their 6th overall pick and three 2nd round picks to the Colts -- in exchange for the 3rd overall pick ... a price some thought was too steep. 

Scott -- who spent 4 seasons with the Jets between '09 and '12, and now co-hosts 'The Afternoon Drive' on WFAN in NYC -- says the move sets the Jets up to land a franchise quarterback.

"Now they're in a safe spot, where I believe they can get one of the 3 premiere quarterbacks in the draft."

So, who's the ideal fit?

"I'm good with anyone. Darnold, Allen, Rosen. Rosen is the more ready, but I like Allen the best, 'cause I like the big arm."

But, what if Penn State superstar RB Saquon Barkley is still on the board when the Jets' pick rolls around?

Scott knows what to do ... 

Can't wait!

3/19/2018 6:24 AM PDT


That's why ex-Jets star Mark Gastineau's life is in shambles -- so says his ex-wife, Lisa Gastineau

We got the reality TV star leaving Craig's in L.A., and asked if she had heard Mark's recent radio interview ... where he painfully described how playing football has destroyed his mind and his body

Lisa wasn't feeling ANY sympathy for her former boo -- saying it all comes down to the K-word. Guessing she still hasn't forgotten about Mark allegedly cheating on her with Brigitte Nielsen back in the day.

FYI -- 61-year-old Mark has previously said he's been diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's ... and now he's in the process of suing the NFL.

Lisa, meanwhile, has been killin' it as a reality fashionista on shows like "Extra," "The View" and 'ET.'

Senator Chuck Schumer The Giants Can Make Super Bowl ... If They Keep Eli

3/19/2018 12:10 AM PDT

If the NY Giants don't want to get audited, they'll keep Eli Manning because a prominent NY politician is totally pro-#10 ... saying he can lead the G-Men back to the Super Bowl.

We talked to NY Senator Chuck Schumer and asked what the Giants should do with that 2nd overall pick -- and like any good politician, he had a plan. 

"Yes, they gotta keep Eli and draft a line," Schumer said ..." I like the guy they got from the Patriots, but they need more offensive line."

"If they get a good offensive line, they're gonna be a Super Bowl contender."

Of course we pressed him like DJ Envy talking to Desus & Mero, but Schumer made it clear he's against picking a signal caller in this QB-heavy draft.

"Keep Eli."

Better hope it works -- you're up for re-election soon.
