Vikings have 'reached out' to Drew Brees' agent

Vikings have 'reached out' to Drew Brees' agent Vikings have 'reached out' to Drew Brees' agent

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Monday that the Vikings have inquired about Drew Brees, who is set to become a free agent after he and the New Orleans Saints failed to announce a new deal before the legal tampering period began.

The Saints dealt Graham and a mid-round pick to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for C Max Unger and the 31st overall pick three years ago. Brees' situation is becoming more fluid.

Brees is in his late 30s and has been a mainstay in the Saints organization. It is now March 9, five days until Brees's contract expires and the $18 million in dead money hits the Saints, and no deal has been agreed on. They can. They have $45 million of salary cap space available. That's how it always has gone with Brees' extensions with the Saints (when he signed days before the franchise-tag deadline in 2012 and days before the regular season started in 2016).

Brees has publicly vowed to remain a "Saint for life" and the team's preference is to pay him one year at a time.

"I can't say enough about what Zach Strief has meant to this team and to me personally over the last 12 years", quarterback Drew Brees said in a statement. We are just getting over a ridiculous weekend full of trades.

The road to the Super Bowl in the NFC is daunting, with a wide variety of teams expected to be legitimate contenders over the next 3-5 years.

That road to the Super Bowl might seem a little too daunting for Brees, who would easily be the second best quarterback in the AFC behind Tom Brady if he signed with a team there. Minnesota offers one of the most complete rosters in the National Football League on both sides of the ball that just earned a berth in the NFC Championship game. Will he do it?
