Arizona Cardinals GM Steve Keim has pled guilty to an extreme DUI stemming from a July 4th arrest ... and the team has hit him with a 5-week suspension.

During the stop, Keim told cops he only had 2 beers that evening -- along with some pizza. He refused to take a breathalyzer. 

Now, the NFL team has issued a statement saying they've suspended Keim for 5 weeks and hit him with a $200,000 fine. The money will be donated to the AZ chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Keim has apologized for the incident and says, "I fully deserve and accept the punishment that has been issued."

"My goal is to do everything I can to grow from this personally and help others learn from my inexcusable behavior.”

Here's the police body cam footage of Arizona Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim -- who told cops he only had 2 beers on July 4 ... but, refused to take a breathalyzer test. 

Keim was pulled over in Chandler, Arizona after cops said he was swerving in his truck and almost hit a curb while making a turn. 

During the stop, Keim told cops he only had 2 beers that evening -- along with some pizza. 

The cops weren't convinced he was sober. 

Keim told the officers he couldn't do any walking sobriety tests due to a messed up knee -- so, cops made him do the "follow my pen with your eye" test instead. He bombed that. 

When cops asked him to take a breathalyzer, he refused ... telling the officer, "Nah. I'm not gonna do that."

Didn't matter ... he was arrested for DUI. Keim was cited and released a few hours later.

Breaking News

NFL rookie Christian Kirk was showing signs of cocaine use when he was arrested at a golf tournament in Arizona back in February ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports

Kirk -- a 2nd round draft pick by the AZ Cardinals -- was arrested for criminal damage to a car on Feb. 3 after cops say he was throwing rocks at cars in a parking lot outside of the Phoenix Open. 

Event security had contacted police and said the suspects were "high."

When the Scottsdale PD arrived to the scene, one of the officers "immediately noticed Kirk's demeanor. He had a blank stare."

The officer placed Kirk under arrest and handcuffed him -- and then suggested he may have been on cocaine. 

"I further noticed the grinding movement of his jaw and continued blank stare. These are common signs of an individual high on stimulants, such as cocaine." 

Both Kirk and another man were transported to a nearby police station where they were booked and later released. 

The arrest didn't stop the Cardinals from selecting Kirk with the 47th pick in the draft. The team has said they were aware of the incident before the draft.

Johnny Manziel can still resurrect his NFL career, so says Tyrann Mathieu -- but he's gotta do one fundamental thing to complete his comeback. 

We spoke with Honey Badger on the TMZ Sports TV show (airs weeknights on FS1) ... and since he's got one of football's best redemption stories, we asked him what Johnny should do to follow suit.

Tyrann's main piece of advice -- tune out the haters!!

"We get to certain points and certain stages in our career where we start to take other peoples’ opinions more than our own," Mathieu said.

"We stop believing in ourselves. We start believing in other people and what they’re saying."

And if Manziel gets that self-belief back -- "He’ll be alright."

FYI, we got Johnny out in L.A. over the weekend ... and it looks like he's already on his way!!
