Drew Brees, Saints taking contract talks down to the wire

Are Saints in danger of losing Drew Brees to the... Vikings

If Brees is not re-signed by March 14th, the Saints take on the entirety of that $18 million dead money charge.

In his career, Brees has thrown for more than 70,000 yards and almost 500 touchdowns. Cousins reportedly has four suitors (the Jets, Vikings, Broncos and Cardinals), while Brees is expected to return to the Saints. only New Orleans hasn't hammered out a deal with him yet.

For Brees, it's a chance to inflate his market value in his Saints negotiations.

However, one big name came down from a report made on NFL Network and shared by Tom Pelissero on Twitter: the Vikings have looked into the availability of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. Brees' agent is Tom Condon. Well, Brees is technically available. He appeared in 158 regular-season games with 93 starts, which is the 11th-most games played by a Saint and ranks third among offensive linemen.

An upgrade at quarterback could propel the Minnesota Vikings to the Super Bowl next season, and they appear to be examining all options.

The royal couple received a huge round of applause from the 90 female students as they made their way to their next event. Prince Harry and Ms Markle, 36, will Wednesday on May 19 this year at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

That's somewhat frightening. The Vikings have plenty of salary cap space and one of the best defenses in the league. However a risky situation could be evolving if the Vikings make an offer that blows the Saints' stance out the water. Cousins is certainly a quality starting quarterback, and potentially better than that. He was also on the Super-Bowl winning squad during the 2009 season.

Much of this remains hypothetical, and the most likely result is still Brees signing with the Saints.

The situation is worth monitoring as the legal tampering period arrives.

The NFL free agency period for 2018 begins on at 4 p.m.

Me too, Mr. Mays.
