A post-Super Bowl look at next season's odds to win it all

Fresh off of maybe the lamest Super Bowl ever, William Hill released its current odds to win the next Super Bowl and four teams are tied at the top.

The Rams, Saints, Chiefs and Patriots all have 7/1 odds. 

They're followed by the Chargers and Bears (12/1), Steelers (16/1) and Eagles (18/1).

The Eagles have the eighth-shortest odds. 

The Cowboys are 10th at 20/1. 

The Giants are 18th at 40/1.

The Redskins are 25th at 100/1.

So far, the most money at William Hill has been bet on the Colts (20/1), with 18 percent of the total money wagered on Indy. The Patriots are next at 13 percent.

The most bets, period, have been placed so far on the Raiders (125/1) and Browns (30/1) because of the perceived value.

The Raiders ain't winning Super Bowl LIV, though.

Popular former Eagles special teams player Chris Maragos announces his retirement

Popular former Eagles special teams player Chris Maragos announces his retirement

After missing all of last season and recently undergoing a third surgery for a significant knee injury suffered in 2017, former Eagles special teams captain Chris Maragos officially announced his retirement on Tuesday afternoon.

Maragos, 32, suffered a torn PCL on Oct. 12, 2017, and hasn’t played since. The Eagles officially released him in February.

Here is the announcement from Maragos:

Unfortunately, his time in the NFL was cut short by the injury against the Panthers in Week 6 of 2017. But he had a pretty good and improbable career.

After a couple years at Western Michigan, Maragos transferred to Wisconsin to continue his college career as a wide receiver. But in 2008, Badgers then-head coach Bret Bielema watched a play in which Maragos tracked down a defensive back after an interception and moved him to defense immediately and it stuck. Maragos played defensive back for his final two college seasons.

After going undrafted in 2010, Maragos played three games with the 49ers before carving out a role with the Seahawks for three seasons, from 2011-13. He joined the Eagles in 2014 and almost immediately became a difference maker on special teams and eventually became a special teams captain. For part of his time in Philly, he even had a significant role on defense, but he’ll be remembered for his contributions on special teams.

During his NFL career, Maragos played in 99 games (53 with the Eagles) with three starts. He was a part of two Super Bowl winners. Even though he was on the shelf with his knee injury by the time the Eagles played in Super Bowl LII, he was an important part of that team. He was one of the leaders of the injured group that included Carson Wentz, Jason Peters, Jordan Hicks and Darren Sproles.

Even last season, Maragos was still around the team, offering a veteran voice for some younger players.
