Terrelle Pryor Ohio State Needs Jim Tressel

2/1/2019 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Terrelle Pryor says it's time for the Buckeyes to bring his old coach, Jim Tressel, back to Columbus -- which is interesting, considering the history.

Remember, Tressel left OSU in 2011 after a scandal involving Bucks players getting free tattoos in exchange for their game-worn memorabilia.

Pryor was one of the players involved -- he was suspended for 5 games. Tressel subsequently resigned. 

It's been nearly 8 years since Tressel left the Bucks ... and Ohio State just lost its national-championship-winning coach, Urban Meyer. Pryor thinks Tressel's the right man to fill his shoes.

"We need to get Jim Tressel back," Pryor tells TMZ Sports.

Tressel was beloved in Columbus prior to his departure, racking up a 106-22 record (before the vacated wins) ... and led the Buckeyes to a national championship in 2002.

Of course, Ohio State has found its replacement in Ryan Day ... but, it's clear Pryor wants to see the sweater vest back on the sidelines, or in some other capacity.

There's more -- we also asked TP, an upcoming free agent, about his next move ... and he gives a bold prediction for next season.

Tom Brady Clearly In Decline ... Says Ron Jaworski

12/23/2018 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ron Jaworski says it's evident Tom Brady's in decline ... 'cause the football analyst says it's obvious the Patriots legend has lost strength in his throwing arm.

"Watching tape and watching games on TV, I think there's a little bit lost in his fastball," Jaws tells TMZ Sports.

The ex-Eagles QB says it's most apparent when Brady throws the deeper balls -- 'cause Ron is seeing a whole lot more rainbow passes than TB12's normal line drives.

"He's missing throws that I see him normally make ... I think at this point -- and it shouldn't be shocking -- he's losing a little bit of his fastball."

Jaws tells us Brady's decline is only ONE of the reasons the panic button needs to be pressed in New England ... 'cause Ron's got major concerns about the roster overall.

"I think Bill [Belichick] probably misplayed a few of his hands in building this football team."

Good news for the Pats?? They end their season with two of the worst teams in football -- the Bills and the Jets.

So, even if dynasty's coming to an end -- 11-5 ain't the worst way to go out, right??

Joey Chestnut Chugs Beer & Slams Fan Through Table ... At Bills Tailgate

12/10/2018 7:04 AM PST
Breaking News

Wiener-eating champ Joey Chestnut chugged beer and slammed some dude through a table Sunday ... officially becoming a new member of #BillsMafia -- and the video is epic.

It all went down in the New Era Field parking lot before the Bills took on the Jets -- when Chestnut showed up to the most infamous tailgate in the NFL.

J.C. -- who crushed 74 dogs at the 2018 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest -- was clearly wasted ... but that didn't stop him from pounding a Bud Light and throwing a grown man through a plastic table.

Unclear why Joey was there ... the guy is from Northern California and doesn't seem to have any ties to the Bills -- but looks like he fits right in with Buffalo's rowdy crowd anyway.

BTW, the Bills ended up losing the game, 27-23 ... but hey, they're still undefeated in pregame tailgates this season!

Brett Favre I'm Not Right For Packers Job ... But I Know Who Is!

12/9/2018 12:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sorry, Packers fans ... Brett Favre says he's almost certainly not coming back to coach Green Bay -- but he does know who should ... DOUG PEDERSON!!!

Favre is actually a candidate to replace the fired Mike McCarthy, according to some gambling sites ... and while No. 4 says he's flattered, he can't see that happening right now.

So -- we had to ask -- who WOULD be a good fit for the spot??

Brett threw a couple names at us -- including an ex-Seahawks offensive coordinator and the current Bills OC -- before he revealed the most intriguing name.

"Doug Pederson," Favre says.

Of course, Pederson's got a pretty good job already -- coaching Carson Wentz and the Eagles in Philadelphia with one Super Bowl ring already on his finger.

But, crazier things have happened ... and there is an obvious connection to Green Bay -- Pederson played there for two separate stints when was a QB in the league.

No matter who eventually takes the job ... Favre tells us they better get ready to give the reins to Aaron Rodgers.

"You make sure that Aaron runs the show," Brett says.

Soooo ... what do ya say, Doug??

EXCLUSIVE

The mother of Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White was arrested for domestic violence last week after officials say she stabbed a man in the chest ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

44-year-old LaShawnita Ruffins -- who famously walked the red carpet with her son at the 2017 NFL Draft -- was arrested on Sept. 29 in Northern Louisiana for aggravated battery and domestic violence. 

Unclear if the alleged victim is Tre'Davious' father. We're working on the details. 

Law enforcement tells us ... Ruffins' bail was set at $75,000. She posted it and was released the next day.  

Tre'Davious White was a 1st-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft -- widely considered one of the best cornerbacks in college football during his time at LSU. 

He had a pretty great rookie season for the Bills -- making the Pro Football Writers Association 2017 All-Rookie Team. 

Tre'Davious made headlines earlier this year when he bought his mom a house in Louisiana.

EXCLUSIVE

Andre Reed LOVES Josh Allen -- telling TMZ Sports he's fired up over the Buffalo Bills QB's victory over the Vikings ... and thinks this could be the start of something special. 

It's high praise for the rookie -- since Reed isn't just a legend in Buffalo, he's an NFL Hall of Famer, one of the best to ever do it. 

Reed told us he was super impressed with Allen's play during the 27-6 win over Minnesota ... especially since the Bills were 17-point underdogs going into the game. 

So, how can Allen keep the momentum going next week against Green Bay and prove the massive upset wasn't just a fluke? 

Andre's got some HOF advice for the kid -- and if Allen was smart (he is), dude should listen up.

Delicia Cordon included the photos in legal docs filed in a Georgia court ... where Cordon is suing McCoy -- accusing him of orchestrating the break-in and beatdown.

Cordon -- who started dating McCoy in 2016 -- believes the Buffalo Bills star ordered people to break into the house she was living in -- which McCoy owns -- to reclaim jewelry he previously gifted her ... and scare her into moving out.

EXCLUSIVE

Bills Hall of Famer Andre Reed is siding with Cam Newton in his spat with Buffalo WR Kelvin Benjamin ... telling TMZ Sports, K.B. needs to end the fight and focus on the season!!

Cam and Kelvin nearly came to blows before their preseason game Thursday when Newton confronted Benjamin about calling him a sorry QB to reporters.

Cooler heads prevailed ... but the beef seemed far from over when the two separated -- and now, Andre's callin' for Benjamin to end it.

"A lot of times you're not going to like everybody you work with and things are going to arise," Reed tells us.

"The next step for him is, 'Okay, that's over with. Now it's up to me to be healthy ... and help this Buffalo Bill team win and be a formidable factor when I'm out there on the field.'"

Seems Kelvin's already started that process ... telling media members after Thursday's game, "I'm just moving on from it."

Guess the apology's in the mail, Cam.
