Vikings Have Contacted Free Agent Drew Brees' Agent

Drew Mahowald: The Vikings and their Chances of Landing Drew Brees []

This leaves a window for other teams to contact Brees.

Right tackle Zach Strief said Monday he will retire after 12 seasons in the National Football League, all with the New Orleans Saints. Other teams such as the Denver Broncos are also looking for a franchise quarterback and they could take shots at Brees and Cousins as well.

No one has been talking about Brees as a potential free agent, mainly because everyone assumes that he's just going to find a way to make it work with the Saints.

The Saints only have until Wednesday to sign Brees to a new deal or they're hit with an $18 million dead cap charge for Brees whether he's on their roster or not. This includes the Minnesota Vikings.

Still, it's not all surprising that this deal is coming down to the wire.

Fortnite dropping in hot on Android and iOS
Perhaps what's shocking is that Fortnite Battle Royale will support cross-platform play and cross progression . The developers confirmed that it will support the same Battle Royale mode on both iOS and Android devices.

Brees, 39, threw 23 touchdowns for the Saints last season and the expectation has been that he will return to New Orleans. Brees' situation is becoming more fluid. We are just getting over a ridiculous weekend full of trades.

"It's a humbling day for me", Strief said during his news conference. But it included only one new year of guaranteed money. Last year, for example, Brees was perfectly willing to let the final year of his contract play out, without demanding extra years of guaranteed salary to be tacked on.

"Congratulations to Zach Strief on being arguably probably one of the best players I've had a chance to coach, one of the best teammates and someone our whole organization and fanbase can be proud of", Payton said in a statement, via the team's website.

There's no reason to expect anything different this time around - even though both sides are adding a little last-minute drama to the equation.
