Ex-Cowboys RB Joseph Randle Denies Rape Accusations 'She Never Said No'

2/13/2019 10:58 AM PST
Breaking News

Ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle adamantly denied rape allegations in court Tuesday ... saying he didn't commit a crime because, "she never said no."

The former NFL player was arrested last September in Sedgwick County, Kansas for allegedly raping a woman for hours ... and was later hit with 11 charges including rape and aggravated criminal sodomy.

He appeared in court Tuesday to face the charges ... and told a judge he was innocent, saying, "She didn’t tell me. She never said nothing. She never said no. So how am I supposed to know?”

The alleged victim said otherwise ... testifying that Randle had gotten drunk, punched her in the face and forced her to have sex with him.

The woman claims she was able to escape ... and half-nakedly ran to her neighbor's home to call 911.

A Wichita Police officer testified in court Randle reeked of booze when he showed up to the scene.

Randle adamantly denied everything ... yelling at the judge multiple times -- which caused the judge to fire back at the ex-RB for speaking out of turn.

Randle did not enter a plea -- the arraignment portion of his hearing has been postponed to a date later this month.

His defense attorneys argue the 27-year-old -- who's been in and out of jail and mental health facilities for months -- isn't mentally competent to stand trial at this time.

The judge said he didn't agree ... but acknowledged Randle's mental health issues could be brought up in the case at a later date.

Randle rushed for nearly 1,000 yards in his 3 seasons with the Cowboys ... but has found himself facing a ton of legal problems since the team waived him in 2015.

NFL's Terrance Williams Hit By Repo Man ... Snatches WR's Hellcat

2/12/2019 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

More car trouble for NFL wide receiver Terrance Williams -- this time, the repo man grabbed his flashy Dodge Hellcat ... and the pics are sad. 

The Dallas Cowboys player bragged about his 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat years ago ... after he pimped it out with a custom purple and lime green, Joker-style paint job. 

But, apparently, the 29-year-old had some issues when it came to making payments -- because the repo man came calling this week in Texas ... and hooked it up to a tow truck. 

Interesting, considering Williams has reportedly made close to $13 MILLION during his 6-year NFL career. 

We reached out to Terrance's camp for comment -- so far, no word back. 

It's not the first time Williams has had drama with a flashy whip -- dude's bright blue $200k Lambo smashed into a light pole in Texas back in May 2018. 

Despite the fact cops found the key to the car in Williams' pocket -- he denied being behind the wheel at the time of the crash. He was arrested for public intoxication in that case (because cops saw him drunkenly biking to the crash scene) ... but, that charge was later dismissed

Tony Romo Absurd Chip Shot ... From Hospitality Tent!!!

Breaking News

Tony Romo ... Romostrodamus ... Tiger Romo??!?!

It might just stick ... 'cause the ex-Dallas Cowboys QB-turned-superstar-broadcaster just hit the most INSANE golf shot you'll ever see an amateur hit!!!

Romo's playing in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this week ... and smacked his tee shot Friday at the Par-4 15th hole into the course's hospitality tent.

Normally, players get relief -- take a drop ... and hit their shot from actual grass.

But, Romo had different ideas -- and decided to take his wedge out ... AND HIT THE SHOT FROM THE TENT'S CARPET!!!

What happened next was just absurd -- HE STUFFED THE BALL WITHIN A FOOT OF THE HOLE!!!

Romo tapped in for a birdie ... and NOBODY could believe what they just saw.

Tony had a tough time winning while he was with the Cowboys ... but, clearly, dude just CANNOT lose in retirement!!!

Emmitt Smith Cowboys Should Extend Garrett ... Here's Why

2/2/2019 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Jones should NOT fire Jason Garrett ... and should instead give him a fat, new contract extension -- so says Emmitt Smith, who tells TMZ Sports the Cowboys coach is great!!!

A lot of fans in Dallas seem to disagree ... JG only has 2 playoff wins in 9 seasons -- but, Emmitt is going to bat for the dude regardless.

The Cowboys legend tells us the job Garrett did bringing the Cowboys back from 3-5 to NFC East Champs this season was awesome ... and he deserves a new deal because of it.

"It takes a skill and a special guy to try to keep players motivated when everyone else is counting you out. And he did that with this team," Smith told us at the EA Sports Madden Bowl.

"Got them in the playoffs, got them to a playoff game, and, obviously, didn't finish, but he has a lot to build upon."

As for all the people clamoring for Tony Romo to take over Garrett's job ... Emmitt says he doesn't know if the ex-QB will be a slam-dunk with instant success on the sideline.

There's more ... we also asked who will end up being known as the better Dallas RB -- Emmitt or Zeke -- and ya gotta see the way Smith dodges that question!!!

Emmitt Smith I'm Excited For Porzingis!! ... Welcome to Dallas!

2/1/2019 6:52 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kristaps Porzingis is already getting love in his new town ... 'cause Emmitt Smith is welcoming him to Dallas with open arms ... telling TMZ Sports he's stoked for the blockbuster trade!!

K.P. -- along with Trey Burke, Courtney Lee and Tim Hardaway Jr. -- was just traded to the Mavericks in exchange for DeAndre Jordan, Dennis Smith Jr. and Wesley Matthews on Thursday.

We broke the news to the Cowboys legend at the EA Sports Madden Bowl ... and the dude is pumped about the move, to say the least.

"Anything that can improve our team is great," Smith says. "With Luka [Doncic] and the guys that we actually have that are playing right now, I'm excited for where the Mavs are trying to get to."

We also asked Emmitt if he thinks K.P. and Luka will be the next best duo since David Robinson and Tim Duncan ... you'll wanna hear what he says.

Michael Irvin Lectures Cole Beasley ... Know Your Role!

1/31/2019 6:34 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cole Beasley is wrong ... he SHOULDN'T be getting more passes than either Amari Cooper OR Michael Gallup in Dallas -- so says Michael Irvin.

Beasley went off on his role with the Cowboys last week ... griping that he was never treated like a #1 receiver and that he should be getting more passes thrown his way. 

In fact, Beasley seemed to blame Jerry Jones himself for the lack of targets, writing, "Honestly, the front office pushes who they want to get the ball to."

When we got Irvin out at Jay Glazer's Merging Vets & Players Super Bowl Party on Wednesday night ... he told us Beasley's being ridiculous.

"Never should Beasley be in front of Amari Cooper. Never should he be in front of Michael Gallup," Irvin tells us.

"And, what he has to do -- lemme tell him, stop looking at Julian Edelman and expect to have the kind of year Julian Edelman has!!"

Irvin says he understands why there's frustration from Beasley -- he just tells us Cole has to know his role.

"The Patriots play the game inside out, Cole Beasley. The Cowboys play it outside in. The only way you catch passes like Edelman is if you go to New England. Right now, you're in Dallas."

Could Beasley change that in a few weeks?? Cole is set to be a free agent -- and Tom Brady's ALWAYS looking for another slot wideout ...

Stay tuned.

Ezekiel Elliott Hits Craps Table With Teammates ... To Get Over Playoff Loss

1/22/2019 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

How did Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys get over a devastating playoff loss to the Rams??

VEGAS, BABY!!!

Zeke and a bunch of his teammates took off for Sin City late last week ... and TMZ Sports has learned they hit the craps table almost immediately.

We're told the All-Pro RB, Sean Lee, Connor Williams and other Dallas stars hit up Aria's casino on Friday and gambled away the pain from their playoff loss for most of the day.

We're told the guys got a private table -- and it seemed the casino allowed them to bet whatever they wanted ... but Zeke was throwing down around $500 (and sometimes WAY more) per roll.

Don't worry, won't affect Elliott's bank account too much -- he's currently toward the end of his rookie $24 million contract and will make HUGE money when he renegotiates with the Cowboys. 

To put it into perspective, the NFL's highest-paid running back is Todd Gurley who recently signed a 4-year, $60 MILLION extension with the Rams ... with $45 million in guaranteed money. 

Zeke will make similar money ... which means his $500 per roll is chump change for him. 

As for Elliott's luck at the tables, we're told neither the RB nor the rest of his teammates came up big winners on the day.

Hey, there's always next year -- right???

Ex-NFL Star Darren McFadden Arrested for Drunk Driving ... At Whataburger

1/21/2019 10:34 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden was arrested in Texas early Monday morning after officials say he was driving drunk at a Whataburger ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Sources tell us the 31-year-old was asleep behind the wheel of a 2019 GMC Yukon in the drive-thru at a Whataburger in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. 

During the incident, cops say McFadden was resisting officers. Multiple sources tell us McFadden's driver's side and passenger windows were smashed during the incident. 

Cops responded to the scene and arrested McFadden. He was taken to a nearby station where he was booked for DWI and resisting arrest. He was released on bond a short time later. 

McFadden was a star during his college days at Arkansas and was selected by the Oakland Raiders with the #4 overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. 

After spending 7 seasons with the Raiders, McFadden later signed with the Dallas Cowboys, where he played until 2017. He retired after that season.   

Despite never making a Pro Bowl, McFadden got PAID during his 10 seasons in the league -- reportedly earning roughly $50 MILLION during his career.

EXCLUSIVE

Amari Cooper expects to be in Dallas for a LONG time ... at least, that's what it looks like after the dude invested in a sick, diamond Cowboys jersey with his name and number on it!!

Amari's team just got knocked out of the playoffs by the Rams, but now the dude can still rep his team in the off-season ... courtesy of the solid piece made up of 40 carats of diamonds!!

TMZ Sports has learned ... A.C. hit up Gabriel the Jeweler -- the go-to guy for huge stars like Antonio Brown, OBJ and Jarvis Landry -- earlier this month to solidify his spot with America's team.

FYI --Cooper's expected to sign an extension with Dallas this offseason ... and after the production he's put up, the dude is expected to cash in with a fat, new deal before the end of next season.

We're told the jersey -- valued at $65k -- was part of Cooper's recent bling haul, complete with a 45-carat Cuban chain and 15-carat bracelet ... worth $140k total!!

It's good to be rich. But, it's good to be richer. Get that money, Cooper!!

Seahawks Fan Gets Ass Kicked By Cowboys Fans ... After Playoff Game

1/7/2019 9:48 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ouch.  

This Seattle Seahawks fan had a painful Saturday night -- because after his team lost to the Cowboys, he tried to fight a bunch of Dallas fans at AT&T Stadium ... and lost. 

The person who shot the footage tells TMZ Sports ... the Hawks fan was runnin' his mouth to Dallas fans after the game and finally, one of the locals had enough. 

You can see in the footage, the Seattle fan was throwin' haymakers -- but never really connected. Turns out, having long hair in a street fight can really work against ya. 

The Hawks' fan's friend tried to help his buddy out -- but like the Seahawks, it just wasn't his night. 

We're told event security eventually got into the middle of the action and broke it up -- unclear if anyone suffered any major injuries. 

Dallas ended up winning the game 24-22.

Here's Post Malone ... who's friends with a bunch of the Dallas Cowboys and says he's seriously convinced they're gonna beat the dog snot out of the Seahawks on Saturday.

BTW ... if you're wondering how Post will celebrate another correct prediction -- we're pretty sure it ain't gonna look much different than this ...
