Randall Cunningham, the Minnesota Vikings quarterback, has won a multi- year contract extension. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Vikings also gave a multi-year extension to one of the men paid to protect Cunningham, offensive tackle Korey Stringer. The 35-year-old Cunningham, who was out of football before last season but is now a top candidate for Player of the Year honours, has led the Vikings to a league-best and franchise-best 14-1 record while becoming the NFL's top passer with a 107.3 rating.

The Green Bay Packers right tackle Earl Dotson, a starter for the last four years, has signed a four-year contract extension worth nearly $15m (pounds 9m).

The Green Bay Packers linebacker Jude Waddy, 23, has been suspended for four games, in accordance with the league rule books, by the NFL for steroid use.
