Vikings have made opening overtures to Drew Brees' reps

As of right now, no contract has been signed.

And now we're getting reports of other teams reaching out to Brees. He has spent so long with the team and has built a great relationship with the franchise, but the Vikings likely don't want to leave any stone unturned in their search for a quarterback.

First and foremost, it's important to remember that there is sentimental value at stake with Brees and the Saints, but that doesn't mean he can't consider better business decisions. At the scouting combine, both general manager Mickey Loomis and coach Sean Payton voiced confidence that something would get done, which is what everyone involved with the organization has said both publicly and privately all offseason.

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 think there's only three other guys that have had more than 10 years - same team - in that category for the Saints". I can add, so have the other QB-needy teams. But if they some how manage to finagle Brees away from New Orleans - pulling off yet another Minneapolis Miracle at the Saints' expense - Minnesota would have to be considered the team to beat. Will they take advantage of his comments and lowball him?

Marion Koopmans, WHO adviser, said, "The intensity of animal and human contact is becoming much greater as the world develops". But the mystery threat has not been placed on the list to scare the public.

The question is who pays them. While a certain percentage of the fan base will call him greedy and selfish and worse, others may be inclined to blame the team, if the gap between what the team offers and what another team offers is so obviously different that it would be hard to expect Brees to stay put.

Smith granted the "most likely scenario is that Brees's agent uses those other offers to get the Saints to sweeten their offer a little bit".

That deal included one of the top salaries in the National Football League (one new year at $24.25 million). Of course Brees is the better player, but Cousins is younger and still has room to grow. But New Orleans's window to retain Brees is shrinking by the minute with apparently a lot of work to be done.
