Terrelle Pryor Shoulda Boxed D.J. Swearinger ... Andre Rison Says

8/14/2018 3:36 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Andre Rison NEVER encourages fighting on the football field ... but with the way Terrelle Pryor got absolutely punked by D.J. Swearinger on Tuesday -- the NFL legend says he's making an exception.

The ex-Falcons receiver tells us Pryor -- who lost a rep (and then his manhood) in a Skins-Jets joint practice -- shoulda found a way to exact revenge before the day was over. 

"At some point in time, you've got to pick a play where you go back at that guy," Rison says. "Fisticuffs may occur."

Rison is speaking from experience ... telling TMZ Sports about the time his Falcons got into a full-out BRAWL with the Eagles during a joint practice that left him with a scar that's STILL ON HIS EYE.

So, yeah ... time to toughen up, T.P. 

Terrelle Pryor Punked Badly By Ex-Teammate ... At Redskins-Jets Practice

8/14/2018 8:43 AM PDT
Breaking News

Redskins star D.J. Swearinger just snatched Terrelle Pryor's soul -- throwing a fake punch at the NY Jets wide receiver ... who FLINCHED like a biiiiiiiiiiiiitch in front of everyone!!!!

It all went down at 'Skins camp in Richmond, Virginia -- where Washington had a joint practice with the Jets. Remember, Pryor was a complete bust last season in D.C. after signing a 1-year, $6-MILLION deal. 

The 'Skins obviously haven't forgotten that ... 'cause after the wideout lost a rep to defensive back Montae Nicholson ... they talked all kinds of trash -- and then D.J. Swearinger stepped in.

The Washington safety gave T.P. his thoughts ... and then hit Pryor with the ultimate fake punch -- that left Pryor (who was wearing a helmet) covering up in fear while both teams watched. 

Pryor's been having a rough camp in NY ... and we're guessing this ain't going to make things any easier.

Ice up, T.P. Ice up.

Joe Theismann Native Americans Cool With Redskins ... Don't Change Name!

7/24/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joe Theismann tells TMZ Sports he's talked to a few Native Americans recently ... and based on his unofficial straw poll -- the Washington team name is NOT racist!!

The ex-Redskins quarterback tells us he's had the chance to speak with plenty of tribe members throughout the U.S. -- and because of his findings, there's no need for Washington to get a new mascot.

"They seem to be okay with the name, 'The Redskins,'" Theismann tells us.

Of course, earlier this year ... the Cleveland Indians began the process to DITCH Chief Wahoo as the team mascot after backlash from fans and critics who deemed the logo offensive. 

Theismann, though, says Washington doesn't need to follow suit ... at least not right now. 

"We try and honor [Native Americans] every day and do the best we can to represent the nations that are out there," he says.

EXCLUSIVE

Washington Redskins rookie RB Derrius Guice says he wouldn't be opposed to Donald Trump attending his games and says visiting the White House would be the "chance of a lifetime."

The former LSU star touched down at LAX for an NFLPA Rookie Premiere event ... rockin' his brand new Young Money diamond chain, given to him by Lil Wayne (he's signed to Weezy's agency).  

But since Guice will be playing in D.C., we asked if he had any strong feelings about the President ... and he made it clear he has no animosity towards the guy. 

"I mean he's running this country. Whatchu want me to do, hate a guy who's running this country? I stay in my lane, he stay in his."

When asked if he would accept an invite to visit the White House if Washington wins the Super Bowl, Guice explained why he would. 

"If I get the chance, yeah. That's the chance of a lifetime," Guice said ... "They got a lot of history in that White House."

Obviously, Washington has to win games first ... but with Alex Smith at the helm and Guice in the backfield, you never know!

EXCLUSIVE

They've had some epic matchups over the years ... but Josh Norman is willing to bury the hatchet and play nice with Dez Bryant if he signs with the Redskins! 

We actually broke the news to the Redskins star cornerback about the Dallas Cowboys parting ways with Bryant -- and he seemed a little shocked by the move. 

But then ... he quickly started the recruiting process!

"He wouldn't be a bad addition -- hell, come on over!" 

"If he can help us win, that's all that matters at the end of the day."

Of course, Norman and Bryant have gone head-to-head a bunch of times over the years -- and formed a true rivalry that got really heated at times. 

But Norman is willing to move on in the name of winning. 

So Dez ... how 'bout it?!

We spoke with the Redskins fan leaving the Big Beluga at 92.3/96.7 The Beat in ATL about OBJ's contract drama ... and despite playing for the NFC East rival, Wale praises Odell and says his impact alone is worth coughing up the dough.

Wale says OBJ deserves "unprecedented" numbers in his new deal ... and explains that his dominance is rare in today's NFL.

We also talk to the "Ambition" rapper about the new QB in D.C. ... and you can tell he's pumped for 2018.

EXCLUSIVE

Josh Norman is already getting behind his new QB -- telling TMZ Sports he feels Alex Smith is "underrated" for everything he's done in his career. 

We spotted the Washington Redskins star cornerback in Atlanta and asked how he felt about the big quarterback moves in the NFL ... including his old QB Kirk Cousins getting an $84 million deal with the Vikings. 

Norman looked a little bummed out (why not? he's a good quarterback) but explained, "It's business. Everything is business."'

He also explained why Cousins is worth every single penny. 

By the way ... Norman -- super nice guy.

Davis and Smith played together back in San Francisco -- but were each shipped out over the years.

So much for a warm welcome for Alex Smith in Washington ...

Redskins stud defensive back D.J. Swearinger is PISSED about the blockbuster trade that sent a young defensive star to the Chiefs in exchange for the Pro Bowl QB ... calling the deal "bullsh*t."

ICYMI -- Washington sent Kendall Fuller (arguably one of the best young corners on the team) and a draft pick to the Chiefs in exchange for the 33-year-old QB. 

D.J. bashed the deal in a series of tweets this morning ...  calling out his team for taking a step back:

"Never Saw Any Bulls**t Like This In My Life!! Idc who i rub wrong because you never sat in a meeting nor put in work with my dawg!!"

"People say they wanna win right but you throw away your best defender!?!? Somebody you can set a standard with?!?! #Defense will win championships!!"

"And We Took a Major Step down from the best slot corner In The Game!! No disrespect to nobody on my squad or coming to my squad but we basically took a step backwards by giving away (Fuller) who graded 90 overall which is Elite and hard too do!!! Smh."

8:50 AM PT -- Swearinger has apparently cooled down enough to give a shoutout to his new QB ... saying "Alex Smith Welcome To The Squad We Got Championships To Win!"

Breaking News

The daughter of former Washington Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke allegedly yelled at a woman, "Hurry up, Jew" ... and then bashed her son with a purse. 

She was arrested ... and there's video of the crazy aftermath. 

The woman who wound up in cuffs is 29-year-old Jacqueline Kent Cooke -- her dad owned the NFL team from '61 to '97. He also owned the Lakers from '65 to '79. The family is rich as hell. 

Fast-forward to New Year's Eve when Cooke allegedly got pissed off while waiting for her coat at Caravaggio restaurant in Manhattan ... and yelled at the 77-year-old woman in front of her, "Hurry up, Jew. I got places to be."

The situation escalated and the woman's son -- 52-year-old Matthew Haberkorn told the NY Daily News he followed Cooke and her boyfriend outside to confront them about the comments. 

That's when Cooke allegedly struck Haberkorn with her glass purse -- causing 2 lacerations on his head.

The video begins right after the alleged purse strike ... you can hear Matthew say, "She just f*cking hit me!"

Cooke responds, "You called me a f*cking bitch. You called me a c*nt."

Matthew fired back, "You called me a f*cking Jew.”

Cooke then tries to tackle him to the ground. She fails. Cooke's boyfriend yells out, "What are you doing? You're throwing a woman on the floor."

Matthew responds, "I didn't f*cking touch her."

Cooke and her BF left the scene -- but cops later arrested her for felony assault.

NFL's Su'a Cravens Claims Racial Profiling During Traffic Stop in VA

Exclusive Details

Washington Redskins safety Su'a Cravens is threatening to sue cops in Virginia -- claiming he was racially profiled and roughed up during a recent traffic stop ... and he's got video of the aftermath. 

TMZ Sports has confirmed the 22-year-old safety was pulled over by the Loudoun County Sheriff's Dept. on Nov. 29. 

According to official records, Cravens was cited for going 39 in a 25 and also for having illegal tint on his windows. He has a court date set for January 26. 

But, Cravens says the entire situation is BS -- claiming he was only pulled over because "I'm black. I've got tattoos on my neck. I'm out here in a nice car."

Cravens says he was put in handcuffs and made to sit in a squad car while officers searched his whip for marijuana. 

Cravens says the cops found nothing. He was eventually released and flipped on his camera phone -- showing the officers he claims roughed him up. 

He's now threatening a lawsuit against the LCSD. We reached out to the Sheriff's Dept. for comment -- so far, no word back. 

NFL's Junior Galette Chased & Tased ... In Crazy Police Video

11/8/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained police footage of NFL star Junior Galette being run down by cops -- and then tased -- following an alleged fight in Mississippi back in April ... and the footage is insane. 

It all went down on April 8 ... when a Biloxi PD officer saw the Redskins linebacker fighting with another man and instructed them both to freeze. The cop claims Galette ignored instructions and bolted. 

You can see the cop -- who identifies himself as a "big white guy" -- sprinting after Galette while shouting, "Stop motherf*cker! I'm gonna taze your ass!!"

Galette continues to run so the cop pulled out his taser and fired -- striking Junior on the first shot and putting the 250 pounder on the ground. The cop is obviously impressed with his own speed. 

"I may be a big white guy, but you know what? I told you to stop."

Once he's down, Galette insisted he did nothing wrong ...but the cop disagrees. 

Cop: "You’re swingin’ and hittin’ this guy right in front of me. I tell you to stop."

Junior: "He hit me sir."

Cop: "Y'all both hittin’ each other. I tell you to stop and then you take off running. If you’re gonna run from me when I tell you to stop after I see you hit him, I’m gonna chase after you and I’m gonna tase you."

Galette was eventually arrested for disorderly conduct and failure to comply. After he was put in the squad car and taken to the police station, the arresting officer can be heard doing some post-chase breakdown with his colleagues. 

One of the cops keeps it real and says the officer who gave chase should chill 'cause Galette's a linebacker ... not exactly known for blazing breakaway speed. 

Officials tell TMZ Sports ... Galette eventually struck a plea deal with prosecutors, though the details are unclear. However, we're told the case is effectively closed.
