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.

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.

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.

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.

Ray Rice says he felt so terrible after the public backlash following last year's elevator attack  ... that "I almost felt like at one point that it wasn't worth living."

Rice sat down with the Baltimore Sun ... and says he was emotionally devastated after the video went public.

"The big picture of it all, being the person that I am, I really felt horrible. You almost want to punish yourself. I know I'm never going to win the battle of public opinion. Honestly, I almost felt like at one point that it wasn't worth living. I see why people commit suicide."

Rice continued, "It hurt that bad. I was low, real low. It hurt that bad because you worked your whole life to do all the right things and then you're the world's most hated person. It was really tough. My daughter, oh Lord, I grew up without a father, there's no way I could check out on my own family."

"Time does heal everything, but I don't think people are going to forget this. I want people to not forget about the incident, but I want people to see there's a human being on the other side. This is not a monster, a guy who's a repeat offender. I'm not the guy they stereotype me to be. I'm not excusing what I did."

022715_ej_manuel_launchBuffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel is no dummy ... telling TMZ Sports he's a BIG FAN of his new boss Rex Ryan -- the man who will ultimately decide if he starts ... or gets replaced.  

Of course, there have been rumblings that Ryan could make a move with the QB spot this off-season ... possibly reuniting with his old NY Jets QB Mark Sanchez to start ahead of Manuel. 

But at LAX Thursday, EJ didn't seem concerned at all -- in fact, Manuel says he and Rex are getting along great ... saying, "That's my man!" 

He also signed off on Rex's new Bills-themed truck and Ryan's Buffalo-inspired tattoo

Reggie Bush

I'm Not Quitting Football

... Just Because I Got Cut

2/27/2015 6:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

022715_reggie_bush_launchIt sucks to be released ... no doubt ... but Reggie Bush tells TMZ Sports he's not giving up on the NFL just because he got cut by the Detroit Lions.  

Just 24 hours after the Lions announced the move, Bush was out at Madeo in Beverly Hills ... in a pretty good mood for a guy who just lost his job.   

But when we asked if it was time to throw in the towel on his football career, Bush was clear that ain't gonna happen.  

It's not the craziest question ... considering Bush is about to turn 30 ... the same age as former Lions running back Barry Sanders when he decided to hang 'em up.   

Bush probably won't have trouble getting another job -- but it'll be interesting to see where he goes ... and for how much.

022615_jason_collins_launch_v3

Michael Sam's decision to join "Dancing with the Stars" does NOT mean he's throwing in the towel on his NFL career ... so says his friend Jason Collins who says he can't wait to watch the guy kill it in the ballroom.

Sam's been taking heat from critics who say the decision to join "DWTS" shows he's more concerned about being a celebrity than playing in the NFL.  

But Collins -- who famously came out as the NBA's first openly gay player in 2013 -- says the haters are wrong ... and he's got proof to back up his argument. 

However, Collins says he does have ONE concern about Sam ... and it's something his dance partner will definitely care about.
