Drew Mahowald: The Vikings and their Chances of Landing Drew Brees

13 March 2018

The Vikings reached out to Brees' agent shortly after it became legal for teams to do so, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

That question has undoubtedly been muttered numerous times throughout the city of New Orleans, as we have entered the so-called "legal tampering period" of National Football League free agency, and Drew Brees, one of the NFL's elite quarterbacks, is still without a deal.
