Minnesota Vikings reach out to gauge Saints QB Drew Brees' interest

Would Cowboys sack Dak Prescott if Drew Brees hit the open market

The New Orleans Saints failed to work out a contract extension with Drew Brees prior to Monday, which means the quarterback's agent is now free to negotiate with and field offers from other teams. "It was just a matter of what was the most fair deal for me and for the team to put us in the best position to succeed in the near future".

Although the team will seemingly move forward with Bradford under center next season, the Cardinals were hoping to land one-time Super Bowl champion, Drew Brees.

When it finally does get done, chances are Brees' contract will look an bad lot like that last extension he signed just four days before the 2016 season opener.

"I'll be here as long as they'll have me", Brees said after last season ended in January. Minnesota can offer more money, a better receiving corps and the kind of defense the Saints have never been able to build for their quarterback. It was hard to imagine Brees, who is all alone on the Saints' list of Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks, ending a career spent as one of the most prolific passers in National Football League history anywhere else. As much as the Saints and Brees love each other, Condon and Saints general manager Mickey Loomis still don't ever want to be the guy who blinks first.

Brees could come stick it to the Chargers for a couple of years while he finishes his career in the same place both John Elway and Peyton Manning rode off into the sunset. The other is Case Keenum, who has agreed to sign with the Denver Broncos. This includes the Minnesota Vikings. They will pick fifth overall in this year's draft and could go after defensive end Bradley Chubb, running back Saquon Barkley or guard Quenton Nelson.
