Monday is when teams officially can tamper with free agents, and Wednesday is when players officially can sign contracts. The Minnesota Vikings have a number of quarterbacks already on their roster and were even said to be close to signing Kirk Cousins, but it's hard not go after a player as talented as Brees.

The Vikings are looking to replace three free agent quarterbacks in Case Keenum, Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater.

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.

So here's the question: As teams like the Vikings, Broncos, Jets, and Cardinals prepare to submit offers to one or more other members of an unprecedentedly large class of unrestricted free agent quarterback, are any planning to make an offer to Brees? A deal can not be official until Wednesday. It is now March 9, five days until Brees's contract expires and the $18 million in dead money hits the Saints, and no deal has been agreed on.

The road to the Super Bowl in the NFC is daunting, with a wide variety of teams expected to be legitimate contenders over the next 3-5 years.

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.

Minnesota is reportedly set to offer Cousins the highest average annual salary in National Football League history. But New Orleans's window to retain Brees is shrinking by the minute with apparently a lot of work to be done.

In 2017, Brees led the Saints to an 11-5 record, throwing for 4,334 yards, 23 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Now that Brees and the Saints are on the brink of the moment where other teams can formally try to bogart him, anything can happen.
