Vikings express interest in free-agent quarterback Drew Brees

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Less than a week ago, our own Cameron Parker reminded everyone that future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees is still not re-signed with the New Orleans Saints.

Two people familiar with the contract say Brees has agreed to a two-year, $50 million extension with the New Orleans Saints. All of that money would have hit this year's salary cap if Brees hadn't signed a new deal by March 14.

Now, he's becoming a free agent and has stated that he'd like to return to New Orleans and finish out his career there, but will it happen? No matter what Brees' plans are, it doesn't hurt a free agent to see what their value is to other teams. Minnesota can offer more money, a better receiving corps and the kind of defense the Saints have never been able to build for their quarterback. And after Brees' agent, Tom Condon, started fielding calls from outside suitors including the Vikings, the deal was finally struck.

But the pièce de résistance came when the producers showed Carragher what his fellow pundits had made of his actions. Furious Sky producers suspended him ahead of his planned appearance on Monday Night Football last night.

Brees threw for 4,334 yards, 23 touchdowns and eight interceptions last season while leading the Saints back to the playoffs for the first time since 2013.

This brings the Minnesota Vikings into the fold, arguably the most glamorous landing spot for a free-agent quarterback in the National Football League right now. The Saints are going to be Super Bowl contenders next year. Brees' situation is becoming more fluid.

When it finally does get done, chances are Brees' contract will look an terrible lot like that last extension he signed just four days before the 2016 season opener.

The other first for Marquette, the game will not be played at their usual home, the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Three of those six losses were decided by fewer than eight points.

He has passed for more than 5,000 yards in a season five times, most recently in 2016.

Brees is 39. His chances to get to another Super Bowl are dwindling.
