Bengals' Pacman Jones Marvin Lewis 'Saved My Life' ... PUMPED He's Back!

1/22/2018 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Pacman Jones is going to bat for Marvin Lewis on the heels of his head-scratching contract extension ... telling TMZ Sports he couldn't be happier about the Bengals coach getting 2 more years.

Pacman wasn't kidding -- saying the team's struggles are the players' fault, 100%, and calling Lewis "one of the best coaches that's EVER been in the game."

Jones even claims Marvin "saved my life" ... probably 'cause he gave him a shot when no other NFL teams would touch him. 

Pacman also heaped a ton of praise on Joe Mixon and A.J. McCarron ... and generally seemed to be in great spirits even though his season ended early. 

New year, new #squadgoals, right??

Bill Cosby Fans Out in Philly Goes Public On a Wing And a Prayer

1/21/2018 1:33 PM PST

Bill Cosby must really like the Eagles' chances against the Vikings, 'cause he mustered up enough courage to show his face in public rockin' their gear.

The disgraced comedian resurfaced Sunday in Philly wearing an Eagles windbreaker and hat as he stopped off at a coffee shop ahead of the team's NFC Championship game.

We haven't seen much of him since his mistrial last summer, when the jury couldn't reach a verdict on charges of sexual assault. His retrial begins in April.

Prosecutors in the Cosby case asked a judge last week to allow 19 additional women to testify against him, in the hopes of establishing a pattern of sexual assault. The judge, Steven T. O'Neill, has yet to rule on the request.

Looks like Cosby's liking his chances, too, at this point ... we're sensing no shame here.

NY Congressman Diddy Should Buy the Jets

1/21/2018 12:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Trying to buy the Panthers is great and all, but New York congressman Gregory Meeks is lobbying for Diddy to focus his efforts on a MUCH needier squad -- the Jets!!

"Wish he was looking at a New York team ... maybe he could turn the Jets around," Meeks told TMZ Sports in D.C.

Don't get it twisted -- Meeks thinks it's dope Puff is trying to diversify ownership in pro sports ... saying it's a win "for all America." 

That said, the DNC rep didn't make any bones about where his allegiances lie ... and clearly wants Diddy to make a play for Gang Green.

The NY Giants ... not so much.

Robby Anderson to Cop: I'm Going to 'F**k Your Wife' ... 'Nut In Her Eye'

1/19/2018 11:05 AM PST
Breaking News

1:45 PM PT -- Anderson has been released from Broward County Jail on $7,200 bond.

3:20 PM PT-- Anderson was arrested at gunpoint, as captured on video by witness Spencer Blount.

The footage is only a few seconds long, but shows Anderson lying face first on the ground while the officer shouts orders at him from behind, gun drawn.

Here's what NY Jets WR Robby Anderson allegedly told a police officer while he was being arrested for going 105 in 45, according to the officer:

"He was going to find my wife, f*ck her and nut in her eye."

It's all described in the police report obtained by TMZ Sports.

According to the Sunrise Police Dept. in Florida, an officer clocked Anderson in his Jaguar going 105 mph in a 45 mph zone early Friday morning. 

The officer says Anderson was driving like a maniac -- "all over the roadway and failed to maintain a single lane."

When the cop eventually got Anderson to pull over, Robby refused to cooperate -- saying he wanted to speak with his lawyer right away and physically resisted when the cops tried to put him in the squad car. 

But the craziest part of the story ... when Anderson was being transported to the police dept., the police report says, "that when he got out he was going to find my wife, f*ck her and nut in her eye."

"He continued to make other verbal threats towards my family. Based on his statements it was clear that he intended to sexually assault my wife."

"He also began to brag about how much money he has and how all I was doing was trying to do is 'Ruin his fun.'"

Anderson is facing 9 total charges including resisting arrest, reckless driving, speeding and something called, "harm public servant or family."

According to his booking sheet, Anderson is listed at 6'3", 160 lbs. 

24-year-old Anderson was a STUD with the Jets in 2017 -- hauling in 63 catches for 941 yards and 7 TDs.

Full disclosure ... Hart's from Philadelphia. So, yeah ...

Troy Brown Relax Pats Fans ... Brady 'Injury' Ain't Nothin'

EXCLUSIVE

Tom Brady's finger won't stop him from being his terrific self on Sunday ... so says his ex-teammate, Troy Brown, who's telling Pats fans to CHIIIIILLL, 'cause Brady is tough as nails.

Brady suffered a mystery injury during practice this week -- and it's unclear how serious (or not serious) the injury really is. Some are speculating he badly dislocated a finger. 

We talked to Troy Brown, Brady's teammate for 7 years -- winning 3 Super Bowls -- who COMPLETELY brushed off the idea that TB would be affected by the setback.

"The guy's tough as nails, I think the last time he missed a game it was an ACL tear. Regardless of what's going on with his hand, his finger, whatever it is, relax people Tom Brady's gonna be fine on Sunday."

Now everyone in Boston can breathe easy, and everyone outside of Boston can be pissed.

Bill Belichick Regrets Jimmy G Trade? Coach Gives Reporter Death Stare

Breaking News

With Tom Brady nursing a mysterious hand injury just days before the AFC Championship, a reporter asked Bill Belichick if he regrets trading away Jimmy Garoppolo

Holy God, does Bill look angry. 

Belichick was at the podium talking to the media Friday morning ... when he was asked multiple questions about how the Patriots are preparing for Sunday with regard to Tom's injury. 

Bill wasn't having any of it ... especially when the Jimmy G question came up. 

Of course, Tom's super talented backup QB was traded away to the 49ers toward the end of the season. Now, Brady's #2 is Brian Hoyer -- who's just not Garoppolo. 

Watch the clip ... think Belichick actually does have regrets? 

Ex-NYG Star Derrick Ward Accused of Brutality Against Wife

1/18/2018 4:16 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Former New York Giants running back Derrick Ward threatened to kill his wife and physically attacked her ... so she claims in new legal docs.

Naomi Lee Allen-Ward just got a restraining order, claiming Derrick has been verbally, emotionally and physically abusive toward her.

She gives several instances in her docs, including one where she says he was schooling her daughter about scuffed shoes and she chimed in to help calm down the situation. She says he responded, "You always have to f***ing say something! I hate you! I'll kill you! I don't care if I go to jail."

In another instance, during an argument in October of last year, she says he lunged toward her, poked her in the face and put his hands around her throat, saying, "You're so f***ing stupid."

She says she's been on the receiving end of monthly outbursts since their relationship began 9 years ago, but he became physically abusive over the last year. She says he shoves her, punches walls, breaks objects ... all in front of their children.

The restraining order requires Derrick to stay 100 yards away from his wife and children. 

We reached out to Ward ... so far, no word back.
