QB-needy teams have reached out to Drew Brees' agent

  • Jets should call Drew Brees if QB hits free agency

For Brees, it's a chance to inflate his market value in his Saints negotiations. But Brees is obviously a future Hall of Famer, and more than his age, it was the perception he'd never leave New Orleans that makes Monday's report so intriguing and a lot of the free-agent QB buzz centered around Cousins until now.

The Vikings have "reached out " to Drew Brees' agent, Tom Condon, according to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network.

If you need a quick preview of all the positions and the players available, check out the latest episode of our Pick Six Podcast. He was part of New Orleans' Super Bowl-winning team from the 2009 season, and he became a regular starter in 2011, staying in that role until early 2017 when a knee injury cut his season short after two games.

Let's just pretend for a moment that Brees wants to head north.

Fans of the Vikings shouldn't get their hopes up too much about the idea of Drew Brees being the team's next quarterback, but it sure is fun to imagine what the team could be like with the former Super Bowl MVP and 11-time Pro Bowl player at the helm.

That's somewhat frightening. The Vikings have plenty of salary cap space and one of the best defenses in the league. "You had more to do with me getting an opportunity here than anyone else".

The Vikings' top offseason priority is figuring out who will be under center Week 1.

Brees re-structured his contract to cut a cap hit in 2016 almost in half, pro-rating a signing bonus of $18 million over three years, starting in 2018.

It bears repeating: Brees is the better player, regardless of age.

The Eagles remain the clear favorite to win the NFC in 2018, even if the Vikings do win the Cousins Sweepstakes.

While it seems as if a return to New Orleans is inevitable, he hasn't signed a deal with the Saints just yet.
