NFL's Chris Johnson

That Chick Almost Broke My Neck!

27 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

Here's video of NFL running back Chris Johnson ... so distracted by a hot chick in L.A. he had to look back at it ... twice. 

CJ2K was hanging out at The Grove when we started asking about his recent dry heave-inducing workout at Jay Glazer's MMA gym. 

But just as Chris started talking about his intense workout routine, some attractive lady came walking by in the other direction ... causing both Chris and his pal to whip their heads around for a closer look. 

Head on a swivel, right?! 

Jameis Winston

'It Would Be Great to Play In Florida'

3/5/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jameis Winston tells TMZ Sports -- yes, TMZ Sports -- that it would be "great" to play for an NFL team in Florida ... this just days after he wrapped up a meeting with the Tampa Bay Bucs. 

The Heisman Trophy winner landed in New York Wednesday ... and with the NFL Draft just 2 months away, we had to ask the possible #1 pick if he had a preference on which team calls his name. 

Winston didn't exactly give anything away ... but he did tell us his favorite movie of all time -- shout-out to Tom Hanks

One last thing ... Jameis was rockin' Nike sweatpants and a Nike sweatshirt ... but an Under Armour backpack. So, we're guessing he hasn't decided on a sponsorship yet. 

But at this point, it's probably just a matter of time. 

Steelers' William Gay

1-Man Shirtless Dance Party

[Video]

3/4/2015 1:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Steelers cornerback William Gay is taking that whole "dance like no one is watching" thing to new levels ... doing a shirtless dance revue on Instagram ... and we got to say ... dude's got the moves.

Gay -- for reasons we're not sure of -- posted five different videos to the 'gram of him (quite expertly) executing every hot dance move out there including The Whip, The Jook, and the death-defying Bobble Walk.

He even got in a couple of real life inspired joints, including Rich Homie Quan's signature onstage waddle, and his teammate Antonio Brown's touchdown dance The Beanie Wiggle.

Watch, enjoy, but please ... don't try this at home.

Herschel Walker

My Son's a Cheerleading Champ

... And I'm Damn Proud!

3/4/2015 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Herschel Walker's son is following in his father's supremely athletic footsteps ... only he's not on the football field ... he's a state champion male cheerleader ... and his dad couldn't be prouder! 

The former NFL star was out in D.C. where he was bragging about his son's Texas cheerleading squad winning the NCA National Championship in Dallas last month. 

"I never knew how athletic those people were," Walker says ... "Now, I've been spending a lot of time with it. And I've gotten involved with it."

Walker is a full-on "Cheer Dad" -- and spends a lot of time mentoring the cheerleaders.

His son Christian is a star on the team ... and after watching the kid twist and tumble in his gymnastics workouts, it's obvious he's got his dad's athletic genes. 

So, we had to ask Herschel ... do you think Christian is good enough to make the Dallas Cowboys cheerleading squad one day? 

You gotta hear his answer -- it's pretty great. 

Giants' Steve Weatherford

NFL Rookies Are Powerless

In Locker Room Music War

3/3/2015 4:23 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Looks like Jamies Winston and Marcus Mariota, better invest in a good pair of headphones ...

That's 'cause Giants punter Steve Weatherford tells TMZ Sports they'll need them in the locker room, where NFL rookies have absolutely NO SAY in what music bumps.

Weatherford was out in NYC (looking impeccable as always) when we asked him about the sonic dynamic of an NFL locker room ... basically what gets played and by who.

Check out the clip -- Steve says NOTHING gets played by the young guys. He goes on to say that if you want some jam time in the locker room you better have major time logged in the league.

He also let it slip that he loves to listen to Taylor Swift ... we heard that Steve.

NFL's Chris Johnson

WORKOUT 'TIL YOU PUKE!

(Or At Least Dry Heave!)

3/3/2015 6:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Here's NFL running back Chris Johnson working out SO DAMN HARD at an L.A. gym Monday, he went and dry-heaved in the parking lot ... and TMZ Sports has the video. 

Johnson was haulin' kettlebells outside of the Unbreakable Performance Gym in West Hollywood -- where trainers pushed him to the brink of hurl city. 

Now, we never saw Johnson actually blow chunks ... but he was close ... and eventually got back to the weights to finish his workout like the monster that he is.  

Fun Fact -- Unbreakable is same place where Diddy raced (and BEAT) NFL star Dashon Goldson in an uphill sprint last month!

Drunken Arrest

After Italian Restaurant Brawl

3/2/2015 8:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0302-jarrett-bush-getty-01Green Bay Packers cornerback Jarrett Bush was arrested in Northern California for public intoxication following an alleged brawl outside of an Italian restaurant ... officials say. 

According to the Vacaville Police Dept., cops responded to Evelyn's Big Italian Restaurant early Sunday morning after getting a call about a "large fight."

When officers arrived to the scene, most of the crowd dispersed ... but Bush remained ... and refused to leave. Cops say Bush "continued to create a disturbance" and was eventually arrested. 

He was transported to a nearby jail ... and officers say that's when he began to chill out and became cooperative with police. 

Bush was eventually released without charges. 

By the way, we did some digging ... apparently, there's a nightclub located underneath Evelyn's Big Italian Restaurant.

breaking news

030215_jesse_holley_launchA former NFL player says he's found the ONE person who could beat Ronda Rousey in an MMA fight -- himself -- saying if the two got in the octagon, Rousey wouldn't stand a chance!!!

The man talking the smack is Jesse Holley -- who played WR for the Dallas Cowboys after winning a tryout with the team on Michael Irvin's 2009 reality show "4th and Long."

Holley -- who's 6'3", 215 pounds -- was on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas this morning ... when the gang began questioning if ANYONE will ever defeat the greatest female fighter in UFC history.

That's when Holley suggested ... himself. 

Holley says if he had 8 weeks to train ... he's 100% confident he'd squish her like a bug.

FYI -- Cat Zingano was also 100% confident ... and we all know how that went.

EXCLUSIVE

Just because J.J. Watt bought a cabin in the middle of nowhere, doesn't mean he's gotta rough it -- 'cause TMZ Sports has the first pic of J.J.'s new Wisconsin pad ... and it's AWESOME!

Watt bought the digs last month as a private getaway for secluded off-season training purposes, describing the home as "really minimalistic" and a way to totally commit to his regimen. 

Well, when you have a $100 million contract "minimalistic" runs around  $800,000 and features 4,500 square feet of living space ... with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and oh yeah ... an elevator.

The property is just outside Milwaukee -- and sits on 35 acres of midwestern wilderness, perfect for "Rocky IV" style Arctic level training.

Word is he plans to transform the barn on the property into a home gym ... just in case chopping down trees gets too easy.

NFL Coach Calls BS on Tape

'It Doesn't Exist'

EXCLUSIVE

030115_rob_ryan_launch

Dez Bryant is getting some major support from one of his former Dallas Cowboys coaches ... who tells TMZ Sports the rumors of an alleged Ray Rice-style tape are complete B.S.

We spoke with Rob Ryan -- the defensive coordinator for the Cowboys in 2011 and 2012 -- who's adamant there's NO tape. Period.

"That's a bunch of bull," Ryan told us ... "Dez is an awesome guy. He's a great competitor and probably the best receiver in football."

Ryan is currently working for the New Orleans Saints -- but he's still very plugged in with the Cowboys.

As for Dez, his family believes someone is trying to sabotage his NFL future by going pubic with rumors of an alleged tape.

So far, no one has publicly acknowledged they've actually seen the supposed tape.
