Vikings have made opening overtures to Drew Brees' reps

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.

With the free agency period looming, this pushes more pressure upon the Saints to get a new deal worked out for Brees in the next couple of days.

League-wide belief throughout the entire offseason has been that Brees will re-sign with the Saints.

The New Orleans Saints haven't yet locked up free-agent QB Drew Brees, but they're working behind the scenes to bring back Brees' most unsafe pass catcher from 2011-14 for a second go-around.

As of right now, fewer than seven hours remain until Brees officially can entertain, via agent Tom Condon, offers from other teams. Also, because of the complex way his contract was structured to help the Saints' salary cap in previous years, if Brees' contract voids it will count as $18 million in dead cap space for the Saints in 2018, according to Nola.com.

Prevailing belief is still that the Saints and Brees will agree to a deal before Wednesday. Brees, on the other hand, is capable of elevating the players around him.

The 39-year-old future Hall-of-Famer presumably is chasing after another Super Bowl ring before his career ends.

The NFC South, in particular, has three legit championship contenders in the Saints (with Brees), Panthers, and obviously the Falcons. Many would argue the Vikings entered their "Super Bowl window" last season, and the one thing missing from the roster now is a quality starting quarterback. 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". Brees may be more of a longshot, but he's worth shot.
