    DALLAS — A former Dallas Cowboys player, a current Indianapolis Colts player and a former TCU player were arrested early Sunday morning at a downtown Dallas club.

    They have been identified as former Cowboys linebacker Stephen Hodge, Colts defensive end Jerry Hughes and former TCU defensive tackle Cory Grant.

    The three athletes were taken into custody at The Bank nightclub, 1313 Main Street, for public intoxication at around 2:30 a.m.

    Police say officers working nearby noticed a disturbance in the nearby nightclub and saw it continue outside on the sidewalk. The men were taken to the City Detention Center.

    All three players attended Texas Christian University. Sunday is Hodge's 24th birthday.

    Hughes was drafted by the Colts in the first round of the NFL draft in 2010.

    Hodge was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 2009 but was injured his first two seasons and released by the team last November. He never appeared in a game.

    As a TCU senior, Grant started all 13 games for the Horned Frogs last season and was named Second-team All-Mountain West Conference for the second year.

    This doesn't mean that Hughes is a bad guy but it is so frustrating that this is the biggest headline he has made since he entered the league a year ago.

    I still don't understand the point of drafting Hughes.

    I know that Freeney and Mathis aren't the youngest players, but why the f**k did we draft a backup DE in the first round when we knew damn good and well he wouldn't get any playing time.

    Ugh, getting this close to football again just brings up all the stupid stuff the Colts do sometimes.

    Because when Freeney gets hurt, opposing teams can focus on Mathis because they know nobody else is really going to be a pass rush threat to them(SEE: Super Bowl 44 second half, Chargers/Colts 2007 Playoff game).

    The idea was that Hughes could be a another speed rusher to spell or fill in for Freeney or Mathis.

    Well I understand fully what the intention was.

    But I just think most teams would use a 1st round pick on an immediate impact player, not a guaranteed reserve.

    Still the biggest headline Jerry Hughes has had.

    Usually the only time his name comes up is when they print the inactive list.

    He and Donald Brown are in a pretty fierce battle to see who can be the worst first round pick of the Polian era.

    I've still got Brown in the lead.

    Brown is currently in the lead, but Hughes sure is a close 2nd.

    He picked the wrong Indy team if he wanted to be on the front page.

    Hopefully this is just a stupid mistake made by a young man and not the beginning of a pattern.

    I honestly could not possibly care any less that he got arrested for this.

    I'm just glad to see he's still alive. I haven't seen him since draft day last year.

    (Except when he whiffed on Antonio Cromartie's kickoff return which essentially beat the Colts in the playoffs. Thanks for the great season Jerry.)

    Don't think it's much of anything concerning Hughes, but certainly a pattern with the Colts and alcohol. But they win...

    It's a lockout Jerry, not lockup.

    That play was honestly the only play I can even remember of him from the whole season, and it's not a very good one.

    I know we can't blame that game solely on him, because we didn't play well enough to win. But still, man did he whiff BIG TIME on Cromartie.

    Yeah, this is not news. No one even knows who he is in the first place. It's the off-season. And, it's a lock-out, which is like Super Off-Season! What else is he supposed to do? I guess, work out and stuff...but whatever.

    Hughes shouldn't be in the running for this yet. Brown has had his shots to show what he can do and hasn't done anything special. Hughes on the other hand was a rookie last year and is stuck behind quite possibly the best 1-2 pass rushing DE's of all time.. You can't judge him just because he hasn't had playing time. He is learning from the two best in the buisness, don't count him out from being a difference maker in the future. He will be getting a larger role every single year from here on out until he eventually takes over, unless he proves to be a bust, which is unlikely. Give it some time. Polian was looking to build depth as well as grooming a guy to be the next Freeney or Mathis. He knew what he was getting with that pick.

    Also, hes not a special teams player, he is a DE. You can't expect him to get everything right his first year with all the changes he had to make and the learning curve from TCU to being a Colt in the NFL.

    Polian often whiffs in early round picks. Lots of second rounders who don't make it either.

    Maybe this will be a wake up call for Mr. Hughes and he gets what it means to be a professional athlete.
