Minnesota Vikings have inquired about quarterback Drew Brees

Another player who Strief mentioned was quarterback Drew Brees, a player he spent most of his career working to protect as one of the starters on the offensive line. This may largely be a reason for the strong interest from Cousins and could potentially sway Brees to consider if the contract situation in New Orleans doesn't work out.

Brees could still return to the Saints, and the Vikings may just be using Brees as leverage in negotiations with Cousins, but the 39-year-old future Hall of Famer would certainly be an upgrade for the team, if only for a couple of years.

But what about the fact that the Saints literally can't pay Brees what he's worth?

However, one big name came down from a report made on NFL Network and shared by Tom Pelissero on Twitter: the Vikings have looked into the availability of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

The UK has, so far, sold more than six billion pounds of arms to Saudi Arabia. Not everyone is happy that Crown Prince Mohammed is in town, though.

No matter what is taking place right now, there are many who believe it is just a matter of time until Brees dons the black and gold again.

And presumably Brees would want that, too, since he doesn't want to put the Saints in a bad financial position as they chase another Super Bowl together. Keenum started most of the 2017 season and played above expectations in leading the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game. But it's now completely legal for any National Football League team to call Brees's agent, make a contract offer and try to get him to change his plans about where to go next. Signing Brees to a two-year, $60 million deal would allow Minnesota to maximize its window while also keeping the cap clean for when Brees eventually hangs it up.

The NFL free agency period for 2018 begins on at 4 p.m.
