Drew Brees Rumors: Vikings, 'QB-Needy Teams' Have Contacted Saints QB

Most people have not taken Brees as an unrestricted free agent very seriously, because he's at the very end of his National Football League career and it seemed like a no-brainer that he and the Saints would come together on a deal.

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. And Brees will officially be free to sign with other teams on Wednesday. It would be the first time in 12 years Brees could engage in negotiations with teams other than New Orleans. The Saints have repeatedly said he isn't going anywhere. He could easily go to Denver or Minnesota and make $28-30 million per year in guaranteed cash to help them contend.

"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.

It is expected that he will sign another short-term deal, along the lines of the one-year contract extension he signed in September 2016 that was worth $24.25 million.

We will do seva for the BJP. "A ticket has been given to her instead of me and I don't approve of it", Aggarwal said. He claimed that the people of his community - Baniya (Vaishya) - supported the BJP and would appreciate his move.

Those teams - or any other for that matter - could simply be leverage for Brees and his camp against the Saints, but what if Brees doesn't balk?

The NFC South, in particular, has three legit championship contenders in the Saints (with Brees), Panthers, and obviously the Falcons.

An upgrade at quarterback could propel the Minnesota Vikings to the Super Bowl next season, and they appear to be examining all options.

There are still several unresolved issues involving New Orleans' cap, including the grievance over defensive tackle Nick Fairley's health situation, which could net the Saints several million in spending money, but if Brees' contract voids it could make it hard to add much talent this offseason. 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".
