Vikings among teams to reach out to Drew Brees

As for Kirk Cousins, ProFootball Talk is reporting via a source that the Vikings and New York Jets are the only two teams who have shown interest in Cousins thus far.

He called Brees "the single greatest motivation for me as a player" while talking about his tireless work ethic. Both are completely unrestricted free agents and both are set to make about $30 million next year. If they don't do so by the start of the new league year, $18 million in dead money is going to be stuck on their cap next year regardless of where Brees goes. What if a deal simply isn't agreed upon?

The Minneapolis Star Tribune addressed the Brees' rumor Monday, writing "It's been assumed all along that Brees will re-sign with the Saints, but now that we've reached the legal tampering window without an extension announced, there at least exists the possibility that the 39-year-old could be on the move".

His arrival in Minnesota would nearly certainly make the Vikings the Super Bowl favorites and would give Brees a better chance at his second ring.

Liverpool, Man United, Real Madrid target will stay at Leipzig
But probably not in the next few years - later, when my English is a little bit better! I'm very comfortable at RB Leipzig . Werner has scored 17 goals in 35 appearances for Leipzig this season, on the back of netting 21 goals in 33 last term.

That road to the Super Bowl might seem a little too daunting for Brees, who would easily be the second best quarterback in the AFC behind Tom Brady if he signed with a team there. Teams like the Minnesota Vikings are trying to figure out how to piece together their best rosters while players are looking to cash in on big paydays or position themselves to be Super Bowl contenders.

The Vikings aren't the only team that has checked with Brees and his agent regarding the future Hall of Famer's availability.

But what about the fact that the Saints literally can't pay Brees what he's worth? Now that Brees and the Saints are on the brink of the moment where other teams can formally try to bogart him, anything can happen.
