QB-needy teams have reached out to Drew Brees' agent

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. If winning a second Super Bowl and cashing in one last time before retirement are at the top of Brees' list of priorities, Minnesota should be his destination.

From Drew Brees, Cameron Jordan, Mark Ingram and Thomas Morstead to Bobby Hebert, Steve Gleason and Deuce McAllister, current and former New Orleans Saints players filled the media room at the team's training facility to honor and celebrate one of their own. Brees' situation is becoming more fluid.

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.

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?

According to Ian Rapoport of, "other QB-needy teams" also called regarding Brees, who is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, per Spotrac. That's how it always has gone with Brees' extensions with the Saints (when he signed days before the franchise-tag deadline in 2012 and days before the regular season started in 2016). Yet the 39-year-old repeatedly has vowed that he plans to be a "Saint for life" and isn't interested in talking to other teams, even though he knows the Saints would prefer to pay him just one year at a time at this stage of his career.

So, why hasn't Brees signed a new contract yet?

Much of this remains hypothetical, and the most likely result is still Brees signing with the Saints. They obviously feel they are an elite quarterback away from the Super Bowl and maybe they are. "I didn't think this was going to last through my first August, never mind 12 years".
