Manning, Megatron highlight 2016 NFL all-retirement team

There's enough talent retiring from the NFL this offseason to fill out a stellar 22-man roster -- one that would have serious playoff potential if it competed as the league's 33rd team this fall.

Looking for a marquee group to follow this afternoon at the PGA Chanpionship? The PGA of America has made it easy for you. If you don't think the 1:25 grouping of Bubba Watson, Sergio Garcia and Jordan Spieth is a thing worth watching, you don't like golf. And if you don't like golf, why are you reading this?

Impressive speed displayed by the Falcons' young linebackers on Day 1 of camp. Wide receivers made some nifty catches, particularly Mohamed Sanu (one-handed), Justin Hardy, and Aldrick Robinson. Both RBs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman showed why they can create mismatches in the passing game. The best rush might have come from DT Tyson Jackson straight up the middle. And Ricardo Allen (INT) and Jalen Collins made great plays on the ball

Argentina's Emiliano Grillo, currently a shot off Jimmy Walker's lead at Baltusrol, noted that the weakest part of his game is his putting, but it's the most important part of the game. All aspects worked well for him Thursday at the PGA Championship after posting his career-low round in a major (66).

Jimmy Walker has finished his opening round of the PGA Championship at -5, and is the leader in the clubhouse. With the Baltusrol greens getting firmer and the winds picking up this afternoon, it's a pretty decent bet he'll stay that way.

Drew Brees, who is 37, said he absolutely believes he can play at the same level when he's 40. Said he's not naive and has to prove it, but believes he can keep it up another five years -- at minimum.

Drew Brees on his contract situation: Said it's the furthest thing from his mind while he's out here preparing for the season. Reiterated that this next month is the time to get it done, because he won't talk contract during the regular season. And stressed there is "nothing adversarial" and has great relationship with GM Mickey Loomis.

As the old trope goes, you can't win the PGA Championship on the first day, but you sure can lose it. Early in the first round, a few big-name golfers are at risk of losing it: J.B. Holmes and Vijay Singh (+5), Rory McIlroy (+4), and Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els (+3) are digging themselves holes that they might have a hard time digging out of.

Jimmy Walker hasn't had a top-10 finish since early March. Missed the cut at two of the year's three majors so far. So why should he do well this week at the 98th PGA Championship? In his first five starts at the PGA, he flip-flopped between missed cuts and top-25 finishes. He MC'd last year at Whistling Straits. So this year at Baltusrol? He's currently 5 under through 14 holes and leading by a shot.
