For 15 minutes a day, Tim Frazier, Penn State's senior point guard, finds a quiet place, switches on a podcast, and meditates. Along with his teammates, Frazier, the team's all-time leader in assists, has found that practicing mindfulness meditation - focusing on the breath with his eyes closed and becoming aware of his thoughts without judging them - has amped up his performance on the court. "The game moves so fast, it's hard to focus on the here and now," said Frazier, who is pretty fleet of foot himself.

Longtime Eagles cornerback Bobby Taylor yesterday was released by the Seattle Seahawks. Taylor was drafted in the second round by the Eagles in 1995 and played for them nine seasons. He left as a free agent after the 2003 season, signing a 4-year, $11.3 million deal with Seattle. Waiting until at least June 1 to release Taylor allows the remaining $2.25 million from his signing bonus to count against the salary cap next year instead of this year.

Former Eagles Pro Bowl fullback Leonard Weaver will sign a one-day contract and officially announce his retirement with the team on Tuesday at 1 p.m. Weaver earned a Pro Bowl invitation and Associated Press all-pro honors in 2009, his first season with the Eagles, after leading all NFL fullbacks in rushing attempts (70) and yards (323) to go along with four touchdowns (two rushing, two receiving). He suffered a career-ending knee injury in 2010. Originally signed as a rookie free agent by the Seattle Seahawks in 2005, Weaver played in 63 games (19 starts)

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The interception that changed Malcolm Butler's life and entered Super Bowl history happened on a play that resulted in a reception during practice. Butler, a rookie cornerback for the New England Patriots, had prepared for the Seattle Seahawks' much-debated pass from the 1-yard line during the two weeks leading up the Patriots' 28-24 Super Bowl victory. He studied it and the Patriots practiced it. But in practice, reserve receiver Josh Boyce made the catch against Butler.

PHOENIX - Russell Wilson has studied Derek Jeter, Michael Jordan, and Tom Brady. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback has tried to learn what it takes to have the "clutch" quality, an intangible characteristic that is often attributed to a sport's best winners. "I just love trying to play like that," Wilson said. "I love trying to visualize being successful. " Before every game, Wilson finds a spot in the stadium that brings him "back down to zero. " He gazes at it during the game to relax and focus on the moment.

PHOENIX - The confidence that helped Richard Sherman become one of the NFL's elite cornerbacks for the Seattle Seahawks was born in February 2009, when Sherman switched from offense to defense at Stanford. During the second practice of spring drills, Sherman became convinced he was the best cornerback on the field. Never mind that it was only his second day playing the position. He determined that such a mind-set was a requirement to play the position, and the bravado begot the production.

Were the Seattle Seahawks suffering a Super Bowl hangover? Their season appeared to be slipping away before things slowly began to change. The Seahawks started the season 3-3, but they enter the game against the Eagles on Sunday with an 8-4 mark and renewed confidence. So what changed? "I think just having to step up, making sure that everybody was on the same page and just continued to work hard," third-year quarterback Russell Wilson said Wednesday in a conference call with Philadelphia media.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - A slip of the tongue gave away Atlanta coach Mike Smith's focus. Smith was just starting his review Monday of the Falcons' 30-28 win over the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC divisional playoffs when it became clear his thoughts were on this week's NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49ers. "We knew the San Francisco Forty ... excuse me, the Seattle Seahawks, were a very good football team and they showed a lot of resiliency," Smith said before smiling after catching his verbal miscue.

RENTON, Wash. - Terrell Owens NFL return lasted less than 3 weeks. Owens tweeted on Sunday that he is no longer a member of the Seattle Seahawks, part of the league-mandated roster reductions from 90 to 75 players.

I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I'm truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver.

CLEVELAND - The Super Bowl, especially the closing seconds of the game, can be a great teaching point for the 76ers. Undrafted and largely unknown rookie free-agent cornerback Malcolm Butler sealed the 28-24 victory for the New England Patriots. With the Seattle Seahawks at the 1-yard line, Butler stepped in front of Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette and intercepted Russell Wilson's pass. "You know, you study the whole thing with [Butler knowing] the play was going to come," Sixers coach Brett Brown said.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – The New England Patriots experienced the agony before, and they were one yard away from living it again. They've been on the field in the Super Bowl when the opponent makes the magical drive and the improbable catch, when the legacies of quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick were interrupted by last-minute defeats. Except on Sunday, all the magic that brought the Seattle Seahawks one yard away from the Super Bowl vanished when Russell Wilson threw a pass that landed in the hands of Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler, a stunning and memorable end to the Patriots' 28-24 win over the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX.

PHOENIX - Garry Gilliam approached his Seattle Seahawks teammates after catching a touchdown on a fake field goal to start the Seahawks' comeback in the NFC championship game and asked them, "Did that actually happen?" He could have been talking about more than the unlikely touchdown. Gilliam, a Harrisburg native who played for Penn State, reached the NFL after missing two seasons of college football because of a devastating knee injury and a subsequent staph infection, and switching positions for his last year of college.

CHANDLER, Ariz. - Tom Brady and Vince Wilfork are the only two New England players with Patriots Super Bowl rings. They earned them 10 years ago in Jacksonville, as Eagles fans all too vividly recall. That 24-21 victory over the Birds brought home the Pats' third championship trophy in 4 years. Yesterday Wilfork, who was a rookie starter at nose tackle that night, acknowledged that he'd figured on having several more rings by now. "Oh yeah," Wilfork said yesterday, as the Patriots prepared for Sunday's Super Bowl XLIX meeting with the defending champion Seattle Seahawks.

PHOENIX - The Seattle Seahawks know they're on the doorstep of doing something really special Sunday, even if they don't want to really acknowledge it until it happens. Super Bowl winners don't repeat in the salary-cap era. The Patriots put together two in a row, the most recent a decade ago. Before that, it was the John Elway Broncos, following the 1997 and '98 seasons. If the Seahawks win Super Bowl XLIX, they'll cement their domination of the current NFL landscape and put themselves on a level above recent champions such as the Ravens, Saints, Giants or Packers.

PHOENIX - Marshawn Lynch had a podium designated for him and a phalanx of reporters awaiting him, but the Seattle Seahawks' star running back adhered to his reputation by saying nothing at the Super Bowl's annual media day other than his repeated desire to avoid a fine. "I'm here so I won't get fined," Lynch responded to every question during a five-minute period. He added in "just" and "boss" for variety. Lynch has been reprimanded by the NFL for not speaking to reporters, including a $50,000 fine in November for violating the league's media policy.
