The Minnesota Vikings, who are rumored to be the favorites for Kirk Cousins, as well as the Denver Broncos are two teams that could offer Brees a strong enough roster to win a championship as well as pay him what he's worth as an unrestricted free agent.
In the eight weeks and one day since the Saints' 2017 season ended, I've been pointing out that, until the team signs quarterback Drew Brees to a new contract, he potentially will become a free agent.
His arrival in Minnesota would nearly certainly make the Vikings the Super Bowl favorites and would give Brees a better chance at his second ring.

Graham, 31, enters Year Nine and would be an upgrade over Coby Fleener, who has disappointed since signing a five-year, $36 million deal to replace Graham, on the NFL's No. 1 passing offense. 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. He was named MVP when the Saints beat the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. But Brees is much, much more than a quality starting quarterback - he's an elite, future Hall-of-Fame quarterback.
Brees could walk away from New Orleans and get paid more money and have just as good of a chance to win elsewhere.
The NFL's "legal tampering period" kicks off Monday, March 12, at 11 a.m. CST. 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.
What happens if the Vikes can't close the deal on either Cousins or Brees?При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
