Vikings Have Contacted Free Agent Drew Brees' Agent

While it seems as if a return to New Orleans is inevitable, he hasn't signed a deal with the Saints just yet. If New Orleans can't come to an agreement with Brees by Wednesday, $18 million in dead money would count toward the team's salary cap for 2018.

Monday's deadline isn't that big of a deal, really. But until a deal is in place, Brees will fair game for contract offers, and it's possible that one or more of the teams mentioned above already have let Condon know that, as of 12:00 p.m. ET on Monday, an alternative offer will be coming.

The Minnesota Vikings are in need of addressing their quarterback situation with each of their options at the position a year ago heading to the free-agent market. If they can keep their roster mostly intact heading into the 2018 National Football League season, they will need to find a quarterback.

Brees re-structured his contract to cut a cap hit in 2016 almost in half, pro-rating a signing bonus of $18 million over three years, starting in 2018. And then get to choose when they exit.

Brees is an 11-time Pro Bowler and led the Saints to the 2009 Super Bowl (we won't deep dive, Vikings fans). 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).

"Drew Brees has been the single greatest motivation for me as a player", Strief said. But I would say with his strength, his size, his experience and all of those things, he became one of the best right tackles in our game over the past five years. But I expect him to cut the Saints a break on the length, with only about one year fully guaranteed.

Strief thanked the organization for taking a chance on him, adding that he was humbled to play alongside quarterback Drew Brees.
