Vikings among teams to reach out to Drew Brees

Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs represent one of the best, if not the best, wide receiver duo in all of football, which would undoubtedly be of interest to Brees if he and the Vikings engage in negotiations.

The front-runners to be the Minnesota Vikings quarterback for the 2018 NFL season still have to be Case Keenum or Kirk Cousins, but we will have to wait and see what happens in free agency or possibly the NFL Draft to see what direction the team goes at the most important position in sports.

With each day Brees and the Saints do not agree on a new deal, the likelihood he winds up elsewhere increases.

The New York Yankees have agreed to a deal with veteran second baseman Neil Walker , according to multiple reports. In 2017, the switch-hitter hit a combined.265 with 14 homers and 49 RBIs for the Mets and Brewers.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, "other QB-needy teams" also called regarding Brees, who is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, per Spotrac.

Graham, 31, enters Year Nine and would be an upgrade over Coby Fleener, who has disappointed since signing a five-year, $36 million deal to replace Graham, on the NFL's No. 1 passing offense.

Brees re-structured his contract to cut a cap hit in 2016 almost in half, pro-rating a signing bonus of $18 million over three years, starting in 2018. And they're title contenders, having knocked off the Saints in the playoffs to make the NFC Championship Game.

For the Vikings, Brees offers a chance to maximize their Super Bowl chances over the next year or two.

The Vikings aren't the only team that has checked with Brees and his agent regarding the future Hall of Famer's availability. Surely, there's a gap that would be big enough to get Brees to say, "Well, I know I've said I'll be staying with the Saints, but their best offer is simply too low in comparison to how another team values me".
