  3. Will Julian Edelman and Aqib Talib be with the Patriots next season?

  4. Catching up with tight end Zach Sudfeld with the Jets.

  5. Joe Kleine, Josh Kline, Greg Kite and Scott Wedman -- a mix of old-school Celtics and rookie Patriots.

  6. Cornerback Aqib Talib and his perceived "dip" in performance.

  7. Looking ahead to the playoffs and quoting Kevin Garnett in that "anything is possible."

  8. Tom Brady and the case of the elusive high-five.
