Vikings have reached out to Drew Brees' agent

Brees' unequivocal position on remaining in New Orleans also could be influenced by a desire to ensure that, if he leaves, Saints fans won't blame him for it.

There might be more here than meets the eye.

"You had more to do with me getting an opportunity here than anyone else", Strief told Payton. They have already been linked to keeping each of their free agent quarterbacks as well as at least one big name outside the team. 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.

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. And it included three years that automatically voided for salary-cap purposes.

"It's much easier knowing that there's someone there that's going to play at a high level for them, so this is all Ryan Ramczyk's fault", Strief joked.

Guscott said many England players weren't making the right decisions and were giving away far too many penalties. I think we've enough knowledge about them and experience to deal with that.

I don't see why not. It wouldn't be surprising if general manager John Elway has reached out to Condon, who also represented former National Football League quarterback Peyton Manning. He could switch over to the AFC, where the only major threat is Tom Brady compared to the NFC, where Brees and the Saints have a hard enough time coming out on top in the NFC South.

This makes sense for the Vikings. From a business perspective? Why not instead offer that money to Brees, a Super Bowl champion and future Hall-of-Famer who has shown no signs of decline?

The Vikings have mostly been linked to Kirk Cousins, but obviously Brees would be a huge upgrade over Cousins, and likely would command a shorter contract.

Drew Brees is no doubt elite - he hasn't passed for less than 4,000 yards in a season since 2005, but this marriage isn't likely to happen.

These teams offer just as strong of a chance to win, so if I were Brees, I'd be keeping my options open.
