Derrick Henry Custom Diamond Chains For My OL ... After Monster Game

1/2/2019 1:05 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Derrick Henry got his O-linemen the ultimate "thank you for blocking for me" present this week ... CUSTOM DIAMOND CHAINS, BABY!!!

The former Heisman Trophy winner ran all over the Jaguars a couple weeks ago ... trouncing Jacksonville for 238 rushing yards AND four touchdowns.

In fact ... dude had 99-yard run in the game that sent the NFL world into a frenzy!!!!

Henry's yards were the most-ever in Titans history ... and his 4 scores tied the franchise mark -- so, as a thank you to his O-line for blocking for him ... he got them some sick drip this week.

We're told Henry got the chains -- which feature a gold 238 -- for all five of the O-linemen who started for the team during the Week 14 romp.

Yeah, we didn't think it was possible either ... but Taylor Lewan's wardrobe just got THAT MUCH more swaggy.

Dorial Green-Beckham Arrest Video Cops Stormed Home

12/24/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained footage of the moments cops captured ex-NFL wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham during a raid on a Missouri home Wednesday night. 

In the footage, you can see several members of the Springfield PD's Special Response Team announcing their presence and getting ready to serve a search warrant on the home. 

Cops say they spotted the former Philadelphia Eagles player trying to flee out of a window -- but they were able to catch him and take him into custody.

Officials say officers found 1 pound of marijuana in Green-Beckham's backpack along with several vials of THC oil. 

Once inside the home, cops say they found 7 more pounds of weed -- but arrested another man in connection with that. 

You can see cops walking Green-Beckham out of the home and escorting him into a waiting cop car. 

FYI, 25-year-old DGB is listed at 6'5" and 215 pounds ... so, it's pretty easy to spot him in the video. 

He was later taken to a nearby police station where he was booked and posed for a mug shot. 

Green-Beckham had a TON of potential as a football player -- which is why he was selected by the Tennessee Titans in the 2nd round of the 2015 NFL Draft ... but off the field issues torpedoed his career. 

Tennessee Titans Investigating Leonard Fournette's Racism Claims

12/11/2018 9:18 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Tennessee Titans have launched an investigation into Leonard Fournette's allegations that a fan was shouting racial slurs at him during Thursday night's game at Nissan Stadium in Nashville ... sources tell TMZ Sports

We broke the story ... the Jacksonville Jaguars running back threatened to beat up a fan in the 4th quarter of his team's 30-9 loss in an incident caught on video

Fournette later told The Athletic the fan had been shouting racist insults like "c**n" and "servant" -- though none of those words can be heard on the video obtained by TMZ Sports. 

Now, sources tell us ... the team has launched an investigation to find out if other people seated in the area heard any of the alleged slurs. They're also working to identify the heckler so they can speak with him. 

We spoke with the person who shot the video -- who is NOT the heckler beefing with Fournette -- who told us he did not hear any racist language. 

The fan said he DID hear the fan hurling insults, but they were based on the score of the game. 

For example, when Fournette was asking the heckler for his age, we're told the guy responded, "I'm 30 to 9."

Leonard Fournette Threatens Heckler During Game 'I'mma Beat Your Ass'

12/10/2018 6:11 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

9:42 AM PT -- Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone says he's spoken with Fournette, who claims the heckler had been shouting "racial slurs" at him and that's why he reacted the way he did. 

When asked if there were any witnesses to back up Fournette's claim, Marrone said, "I trust the player."

9:39 AM PT -- Matt Stafford's wife, Kelly, has just weighed in ... PRAISING Fournette for "the way he stood up for himself."

Kelly noted, "'Fans' probably said way worse things to him ... but yet he will lose money because he responded."

The message -- Kelly is sick of players like Fournette getting heckled by people in the stands. 

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette was so rattled during the loss to the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, he got into it with a fan ... and threatened to beat the guy's ass.

TMZ Sports has footage of Fournette on the sidelines in the 4th quarter of the Jags' 30-9 loss at Nissan Stadium in Nashville ... where the RB angrily tells the fan, "Listen, you're too old for that. I will beat your ass!"

Two men who appear to be Jaguars staffers grab Leonard and try to walk him away -- but minutes later, Fournette begins to jaw at the fan again ... repeating his threat.

"Facts, you're too old for that," Fournette says while sitting on the team bench ... "You're too old for that. Chill out. I'm not worried about you. You want to come down here?? I'll whoop your ass."

The Jags lost the game and Fournette was only held to 36 rushing yards on 14 carries. 

Fournette has been irritable lately -- just a few weeks ago, he was ejected from the Buffalo Bills game for fighting Shaq Lawson ... and then tried to continue the scrap in the stadium tunnel. 

Fournette was hit with a 1-game suspension for the Buffalo incident -- and later apologized to "the fans and kids out there."

"Was totally out of character was in the heat of the moment in a important game," Fournette posted on social media ... "emotions got the best of me apologize again to you all."

Fournette has never been afraid of a fight -- back in college, he got into it with LSU offensive lineman Garrett Brumfield outside of Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge. 

LSU officials insisted the guys were just messin' around. 

But, one thing's for sure ... if Fournette threatens to beat your ass, he's willing to back it up. 

Willie McGinest Derrick Henry's 99-Yd TD ... Not The Best Run Ever!

12/7/2018 12:09 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Derrick Henry's 99-yard touchdown Thursday night was dope ... but there are a few runs BETTER than it in NFL history -- so says Pats legend Willie McGinest.

Henry stiff-armed three dudes straight to the dirt, stayed in bounds and outran all 11 Jaguars to the end zone ... and the whole state of Tennessee went crazy after.

But, when we got Willie out at LAX -- he says he's seen better, "I would say it's ONE of my top runs."

Willie ain't a hater ... he just says he's seen Marshawn Lynch go off way too many times to put Derrick's epic run ahead of some of Beast Mode's famous sprints.

"That's why we started calling them the 'Beast Mode Runs,' 'cause of Lynch against the Saints. And then, I think he had another one against Arizona, so."

Think Willie's wrong?? Take a look at the Beast Quake one more time ...

Yeah ... we're probably in Willie's corner on this debate.

Breaking News

Derrick Henry had arguably the greatest run in NFL history Thursday night ... and his pal, Mark Ingram, couldn't have been prouder -- 'cause he lost his mind watching it!!!

ICYMI ... Henry tied the longest run ever in the NFL with a 99-yard TD in the 2nd quarter of the Titans' blowout win over the Jags -- and the play was epic.

Derrick stiff-armed three dudes, tight-roped the sideline and outran the entire Jacksonville defense to tie Tony Dorsett's longest-ever TD run.

Ingram -- who won a Heisman Trophy at Alabama just like Henry -- went bananas watching the replay ... super proud of his buddy who's taken criticism for not running well this season.

"You get a stiffy! You get a stiffy! You get a stiffy! I see you, boy!"

Henry's night wasn't over there -- the dude ran for another 139 yards and 3 scores -- and yeah, Ingram was just as pumped for those too.

"Tell them we ain't going for it, bruh! Tell them we ain't going for it! We don't need none of that fake love that they was talking, man! We out here, boy! Yeah!"

Ingram wasn't the only guy impressed ... both Le'Veon Bell AND Ezekiel Elliott praised the gallop on their social media pages.

BTW ... Henry's game was the highest-scoring one of any fantasy football player this year -- soooo, hopefully, you didn't keep him on your bench!!!

DeAndre Hopkins Bob McNair Tribute Was 'Very Special' ... Despite Rocky Past

DeAndre Hopkins had nothing but love for late Houston Texans owner Bob McNair on Monday ... despite the fact the two clashed hard after McNair's infamous "inmates run the prison" comment.

Remember, while NFL owners held a meeting to find a way to stop the kneeling protests last year ... McNair was quoted as saying, “We can’t have the inmates running the prison.”

Hopkins was reportedly VERY offended by McNair's comment and sat out a full practice in protest.

But, after torching the Tennessee Titans on "Monday Night Football", DeAndre couldn't have been more respectful when talking about McNair in the locker room. 

In fact, when asked about the team's decision to give the game ball to Bob's son, Cal McNair, DeAndre explained ..."That was very special. Cal and their family deserve it with everything they've done for this city."

"Everything they've been through ... Bob was at practice. Bob was active, and Cal is the same way. So you got to love those guys."

In addition to giving Cal the game ball after the victory ... the Texans honored Bob with helmet decals and a pregame video tribute.

McNair was 81 years old.

As for the cleats, Williamson is auctioning them off with proceeds going to Operation Warrior Wishes
