That road to the Super Bowl might seem a little too daunting for Brees, who would easily be the second best quarterback in the AFC behind Tom Brady if he signed with a team there. But Brees is obviously a future Hall of Famer, and more than his age, it was the perception he'd never leave New Orleans that makes Monday's report so intriguing and a lot of the free-agent QB buzz centered around Cousins until now.

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. 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.

According to the NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, the Vikings planned to contact every free agent option at the quarterback position today, and that includes Drew Brees.

Monday is when teams officially can tamper with free agents, and Wednesday is when players officially can sign contracts.

The Vikings, of course, are seeing all three of Case Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford hit the market.

Much of this remains hypothetical, and the most likely result is still Brees signing with the Saints. Brees' contract will void Wednesday afternoon, and he'll count for $18 million in dead space for the upcoming season. Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs represent one of the best, if not the best, wide receiver duo in all of football, which would undoubtedly be of interest to Brees if he and the Vikings engage in negotiations. A deal can not be official until Wednesday.

Strief thanked the organization for taking a chance on him, adding that he was humbled to play alongside quarterback Drew Brees. Brees may be more of a longshot, but he's worth shot.
