The Vikings have reached out to the agent of free-agent quarterback Drew Brees, per NFL Media's Tom Pelissero. While Brees leaving the comfort of Sean Payton's offense is still unlikely, the Saints are playing a risky game by letting it get to this point.
He's a Saints legend, after all.
Of course, conventional logic would tell you that there's no chance Brees leaves the Saints but I'm not so sure.
It is expected that he will sign another short-term deal, along the lines of the one-year contract extension he signed in September 2016 that was worth $24.25 million.
Brees also has openly declared his desire to sign a new deal with the Saints, and the team's decision-makers met with Brees' agent - Tom Condon - at the recent National Football League scouting combine.
Right now, the dead money number is $6 million as is. No matter what Brees' plans are, it doesn't hurt a free agent to see what their value is to other teams. He could switch over to the AFC, where the only major threat is Tom Brady compared to the NFC, where Brees and the Saints have a hard enough time coming out on top in the NFC South. We then must ask, would it be in the Vikings' best interest to sign him on the spot or continue to pursue Kirk Cousins? This leaves a window for other teams to contact Brees. 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.
The NFC South, in particular, has three legit championship contenders in the Saints (with Brees), Panthers, and obviously the Falcons. At the very least, all the teams that don't already have a franchise quarterback should be giving it a shot.
I am not certain anything is going to change with Brees as far as his playing location, but the possibility is definitely there, and I'd be shocked if the money wasn't there as well. Will he do it?
