Vikings have 'reached out' to Drew Brees' agent

Drew Mahowald: The Vikings and their Chances of Landing Drew Brees [VikingsTerritory.com]

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. They were said to be going hard after free agent Kirk Cousins.

Strief was a rookie in 2006 when the team went to the NFC Championship game, only to fall one win shy of a Super Bowl.

Now the other 31 teams in the league can reach out to Brees and attempt to pry him away from New Orleans.

NFL Free Agency is officially underway as teams are now allowed to discuss contract numbers with player agents, and one player that might get a few calls is New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

The New Orleans Saints failed to work out a contract extension with Drew Brees prior to Monday, which means the quarterback's agent is now free to negotiate with and field offers from other teams.

Prevailing belief is still that the Saints and Brees will agree to a deal before Wednesday.

Brees, who turned 39 in January, threw for 4,328 yards with 28 touchdowns and eight interceptions last season.

The Minnesota Vikings are in need of addressing their quarterback situation with each of their options at the position a year ago heading to the free-agent market. I can add, so have the other QB-needy teams.

The Saints only have until Wednesday to sign Brees to a new deal or they're hit with an $18 million dead cap charge for Brees whether he's on their roster or not. Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs represent one of the best, if not the best, wide receiver duo in all of football, which would undoubtedly be of interest to Brees if he and the Vikings engage in negotiations.
