Minnesota Vikings have inquired about quarterback Drew Brees

With three quarterbacks on their roster heading to the open market, the Minnesota Vikings reached out to the agent for free-agent quarterback Drew Brees on Monday, NFL Network reported.

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.

No matter what is taking place right now, there are many who believe it is just a matter of time until Brees dons the black and gold again.

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 risky pass catcher from 2011-14 for a second go-around. It is now March 9, five days until Brees's contract expires and the $18 million in dead money hits the Saints, and no deal has been agreed on.

Prevailing belief is still that the Saints and Brees will agree to a deal before Wednesday. And they're title contenders, having knocked off the Saints in the playoffs to make the NFC Championship Game. If winning a second Super Bowl and cashing in one last time before retirement are at the top of Brees' list of priorities, Minnesota should be his destination.

An upgrade at quarterback could propel the Minnesota Vikings to the Super Bowl next season, and they appear to be examining all options. Cousins is certainly a quality starting quarterback, and potentially better than that.

Minnesota is reportedly set to offer Cousins the highest average annual salary in National Football League history.

The Vikings aren't the only team that has checked with Brees and his agent regarding the future Hall of Famer's availability. As much as the Saints and Brees love each other, Condon and Saints general manager Mickey Loomis still don't ever want to be the guy who blinks first.

A pillar of the New Orleans Saints has made a decision to walk away. 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.
