1. Pfizer expected to seek approval for COVID-19 vaccine for children under 5
Pfizer is expected to apply for FDA emergency authorization for a two-dose regimen of its COVID-19 vaccine for children 6 months to 5 years old as soon as Tuesday.
That's according to a person familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive regulatory issues.
If approved, children could start getting the vaccine as soon as late February.
Early Pfizer data has shown the vaccine — which is administered to younger kids at one-tenth the strength of the adult shot — is safe and produces an immune response.
2. DeSantis calls on feds to fund Everglades reservoir
DeSantis was joined by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., U.S. Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla. and U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., at a stormwater treatment area in Wellington..
However, the governor said Monday he was disappointed that the federal government is not allocating any money to the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) Reservoir Project. None of the lawmakers who joined DeSantis voted for the infrastructure bill.
3. Tom Brady addresses retirement reports
On the "Let's Go!" podcast, Brady told Jim Gray that he's still going through the process of evaluating whether he will return for another season.
"We're in such an era of information and people want to be in front of the news often. I totally understand that and understand that's the environment we're in," Brady said. "I think for me, it's just literally day-to-day with me."
Brady, who was out of the country this weekend, said he was disappointed that the story took away some of the spotlight from the playoff games.
4. National Archives turns over Trump documents to Jan. 6 committee
The Jan. 6 committee received some of former President Donald Trump's documents Monday from the National Archives following a court battle.
Some of the documents had been ripped up. The records in possession of the National Archives include presidential diaries and visitor logs. However, it's unclear what documents were torn.
Trump had tried to prevent the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 attacks from getting documents from his administration. He claimed they were subject to executive privilege.
However, multiple courts struck down that argument and the Supreme Court rejected a request to hear the case.
5. It's not delivery, it's getting paid to pick up your own pizza

The new policy, which runs until May 22, comes ahead of the company's biggest pizza sales day - Super Bowl Sunday.
