Eagles announce that Jason Peters has agreed to a contract extension.
Peters signed on the dotted line for $51.3 million over the course of a five year deal. The 32 year old, who has resumed his Pro Bowl form after two Achilles injuries, is being paid a ton with the hope that he will be able to maintain his level of play at an elite level. ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Von Miller was named MVP of Super Bowl 50.
Miller was an absolute beast today and was probably the biggest reason for the Broncos' Super Bowl victory. A pair of strip-sacks ended up being the two most important plays of the day. One in the first quarter that resulted in a fumble recovery for a touchdown and the other coming in the fourth quarter during the Panthers' last gasp led to Denver's victory. Miller is set to be a free agent this offseason, but there's no way the Broncos will let him walk. Miller will be paid handsomely and he is surely ready to continue his career in Denver after the success he has already had in the Mile High City. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
Marshawn Lynch tweeted on Sunday night indicating that he plans to retire.
Lynch stole the thunder from the Super Bowl by announcing his plans to retire during the game. Regardless of when and where Lynch retired, the news still remains the biggest sports news of the day outside of the big game. The Seahawks lose their bruising back (although they can replace him with Thomas Rawls) and the game loses an ultra enteraining running back. Lynch went the Calvin Johnson/Barry Sanders route and is calling it quits even with a year or two of effective play still left in him. The Seahawks and several other teams are bound to try and talk him out of retirement, but the notoriously stubborn Lynch is unlikely to change his mind. Rawls becomes the top running back and should be a solid fantasy back in 2016. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
Jimmy Butler (knee) will not play Monday and he will likely miss Wednesday's game against the Hawks.
One would think that if Jimmy Butler would be injured in the first half, his back would be sore from carrying the Bulls offense. But an MRI on his knee revealed a strain. He is already ruled out for Monday and Wednesday is more than likely a game Butler will miss as well. This is potential good news for Derrick Rose owners who will have to help provide offense with Butler potentially out for the week. Butler's status for All Star weekend is unknown, much will depend on how his knee responds to therapy this week. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Jonathan Stewart has returned to the game.
As an update, Jonathan has progressed from questionable to return rather quickly. He not only was on the field in the Panthers recent possession, he has carried the ball and caught a pass in consecutive plays. Adrenaline should allow him to play as long as his foot will hold up. Good news for the Panthers if Stewart can be effective after returning from the injury. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Jonathan Stewart (ankle) limped off of the field and is questionable to return.
Jonathan Stewart left the field after a player rolled onto his foot at the end of a tackle. Stewart made it off the field under his own power, but his return is officially listed as questionable. Carolina needs its best running back to keep the Bronco defense honest. If Stewart is indeed lost for the game, it will definitely affect the Panther offense moving forward. More updates are sure to follow regarding Stewart. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Freddy Garcia has announced he has retired from baseball.
Veteran pitcher Freddy Garcia pitched for seven teams in his 15 year career in the majors winning 156 games with a 4.15 ERA and over 1,600 strikeouts. Garcia will not attempt to pitch in a 16th year as he announced his retirement prior to pitching in the Caribbean Series championship. His best season was 2001 in which he won 18 games and finished third in the Cy Young Award voting. He has been out of the majors the last two seasons so this news ends any chance of a comeback.

Padres signed Hunter Redman to a minor league deal.
In an effort to gain more organizational depth at catcher, the Padres have signed a minor league free agent. Hunter Redman only logged 11 at bats last year in the minors but should slot in wherever San Diego needs him in their system this year. Redman is only 23 and played his college ball at Texas Tech.

Al Jefferson (knee) has begun non-contact drills.
The veteran center of the Hornets has had a tough season. First Al Jefferson injured his calf and was suspended for violating the league's substance abuse policy. After returning from the calf injury, Jefferson suffered a knee injury which required arthroscopic surgery to repair his meniscus. His surgery was right before the new year and his prognosis was a six week return. Jefferson has started to go through non-contact drills. But his age and the injury may keep him out past the original return date. Monitor the reports regarding his practice activity. Analysis: Greg Jewett
C.J. Anderson will be the Denver Broncos’ starting running back for Super Bowl 50.
In a move that will not surprise any fantasy owners, the Broncos have switched their starting running back for Super Bowl 50. C.J. Anderson has out gained Ronnie Hillman by 90 yards on only four more carries in the playoffs. Anderson has averaged 4.6 yards per attempt to rush for 144 yards in the postseason. He has also caught five passes for 29 yards. If the Broncos are going to keep Cam Newton on the sideline and play ball possession, they need their best runner in the game, which is C.J. Anderson.

NBA will likely announce the Blake Griffin suspension before the All-Star break.
The pending suspension stems from the altercation that Griffin and a Clippers equipment manager got into while on a road trip that resulted in Griffin punching out the equipment guy and breaking his hand. There is also reports from Steve Ballmer, the team owner, that L.A. will add to the suspension the league hands out. So Blake Griffin owners are likely not to see him on the court till nearly the end of the regular season as the suspension won't take effect until he recovers from the injuries he is currently suffering from.
