We begin in the NFL where the Chicago Bears are set to stick with Jay Cutler as their starting quarterback for the 2015 season.
There had been intense speculation in recent days that the much maligned QB would be traded this offseason, with the San Francisco 49ers mentioned as one potential destination. But it looks like new Bears head coach John Fox is sticking with Cutler and the $15.5 million he is set to earn on his 2015 salary.

Sources told ESPN that there was "zero truth" in the recent trade rumors, and, much to the surprise of many Chicago fans forced to endure the tumultuous 2014 season, it actually looks like the new Bears staff are making serious plans to utilise Cutler's talents going forward.
"The new staff - including offensive coordinator Adam Gase - has been enthusiastically making plans with a playbook it believes will accentuate Cutler's strengths with the available talent around him, sources said."
This latest development marks a change from the recent lack of commitment from Fox when commenting on the quarterback situation since arriving at Soldier Field.
Elsewhere in the league, running back Frank Gore has had a change of heart just hours before free agency officially opens.
A deal with the Eagles appears to have broken down, leaving the Indianapolis Colts in prime position to secure his signature.
While Gore's deal is far from done, those involving LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills, Ndamukong Suh to the Miami Dolphins and Byron Maxwell to th Philadelphia Eagles all look set to go through without a hitch.
Across to the NBA and Derrick Rose has spoken publicly for the first time since undergoing knee surgery 11 days ago.
The Chicago Bulls star said there was a good chance he would be back before the end of the season but would not say for certainty whether he would be back on the court in time to help Chicago make their playoff push.
And finally, in the NHL the New York Islanders came back from 3 goals down to beat the Toronto Maple leafs 4-3 in Overtime last night.
It was a goal from Islanders captain John Tavares with just 21.8 seconds left on the clock in overtime that game New York the impressive road win.
