Cousins reportedly has four suitors (the Jets, Vikings, Broncos and Cardinals), while Brees is expected to return to the Saints. only New Orleans hasn't hammered out a deal with him yet.

And now we're getting reports of other teams reaching out to Brees.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network said the Vikings reached out to representatives for several quarterbacks as the NFL free-agent negotiating window began Monday afternoon.

With the free agency period looming, this pushes more pressure upon the Saints to get a new deal worked out for Brees in the next couple of days.

He called Brees "the single greatest motivation for me as a player" while talking about his tireless work ethic.


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

Strief wasn't on the Saints' draft board until Walker insisted that he would be a 10-year player in the National Football League - and Strief has talked before about how much it meant to him to prove his coach right. Also, because of the complex way his contract was structured to help the Saints' salary cap in previous years, if Brees' contract voids it will count as $18 million in dead cap space for the Saints in 2018, according to Nola.com. And they're title contenders, having knocked off the Saints in the playoffs to make the NFC Championship Game. He was named MVP when the Saints beat the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. Why not instead offer that money to Brees, a Super Bowl champion and future Hall-of-Famer who has shown no signs of decline?

"It's a humbling day for me", Strief said during his news conference.

If the Vikings pursue Brees too much and he ends up signing with New Orleans again, they may miss out on Kirk Cousins.

What happens if the Vikes can't close the deal on either Cousins or Brees?
