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.

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".
