If you're Brees, you have to at least field that call.
The Minnesota Vikings now don't have any quarterbacks on their roster.
For Brees, it's a chance to inflate his market value in his Saints negotiations. Pelissero's colleague Ian Rapoport said other teams have done the same.
Let's just pretend for a moment that Brees wants to head north.
The Vikings are among the frontrunners to sign former Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins.
That's somewhat frightening. The Vikings have plenty of salary cap space and one of the best defenses in the league. You're the greatest leader I've ever been around and I admire you so much as a player but more as a person. The Vikings' Super Bowl window isn't going to stay open for more than a handful of years, no matter who is lining up behind center.
The Eagles remain the clear favorite to win the NFC in 2018, even if the Vikings do win the Cousins Sweepstakes. That's the byproduct of Brees' last contract, signed in 2016, in which New Orleans opted to kick the can down the line not one or two but three seasons.
