VACATE THE CHAMPS: "Yeah, I'm mad," said Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders when asked about DeflateGate. But he didn't stop there. He thinks the Patriots should be stripped of their Super Bowl win ... which still wouldn't have helped him catch a critical pass on third and 4, in single coverage, in the fourth quarter.

SOMEONE'S MOVING: This is a good sign for NFL fans in Los Angeles, and a bad sign for fans in one or two of the three markets that could lose a team. The NFL is officially looking for a temporary stadium in Los Angeles -- the Rose Bowl and Coliseum are in the mix -- for the 2016 season.

SCOUTING SAM: Michael Sam returned to the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL, and the team's general manager says that NFL teams are already calling about him.

PETERSON'S FALL: How bad would it be if, after all the acrimony between Adrian Peterson and the Vikings, they finally get him back in the fold only to have him injured because of hijinks on a Phunkee Duck?
