Drew Brees, Saints taking contract talks down to the wire

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

The Vikings are among the frontrunners to sign former Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins. Brees is free to communicate with other teams when the legal tampering period begins on Monday, just the same as any free agent.

Former Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has garnered 100 percent of the free-agent quarterback hype across the National Football League this offseason.

An upgrade at quarterback could propel the Minnesota Vikings to the Super Bowl next season, and they appear to be examining all options.

Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints still don't have a deal.

Quarterback Drew Brees is a New Orleans institution as the face of the Saints, but other teams have reportedly inquired about his availability.

The Minnesota Vikings are in need of addressing their quarterback situation with each of their options at the position past year heading to the free-agent market.

This could have a tremendous impact on how things play out for Cousins if the Vikings were to somehow able to pry Brees away from the Saints.

For Brees, it's a chance to inflate his market value in his Saints negotiations. That's the byproduct of Brees' last contract, signed in 2016, in which New Orleans opted to kick the can down the line not one or two but three seasons. But the Vikings aren't the only ones reaching out. Other teams such as the Denver Broncos are also looking for a franchise quarterback and they could take shots at Brees and Cousins as well.

Much of this remains hypothetical, and the most likely result is still Brees signing with the Saints.

In his career, Brees has thrown for more than 70,000 yards and almost 500 touchdowns.
