Well, this will be crazy.
After failing to agree to a long term deal with the Saints, QB Drew Brees is technically a free agent and is free to talk to any team he so chooses.
The fact that Brees is a free agent isn’t as big of a headline as Cousins is because many believe Brees will ultimately re-sign with the Saints.
But nonetheless, here we are and on the first day of the legal tampering period, the Minnesota Vikings have reached out to Brees to scope his interest:

If you remember, it was the Vikings who eliminated the Saints in the Divisional Round last January.
Manuel Granados Vargas It's like calling the hottest girl in school to ask her out on a date just to say you did it cause maybe she was confused and would say yes.
Nate Brousseau The Vikings understand that QB is the most important player on the team, it appears that they plan to have about 5 of them starting.
Nick Baker Why pay that Brees money when you were 2 wins away with Keenum and without Dalvin Cook. Sign Keenum for less and keep Bridgewater or Bradford. Trade the more expensive back up
Jay Leet Could you imagine the look on Jimmy Grahm's face when he returns to the Saints and finds out Brees isn't there anymore LOL
Kristopher Coe What's funny is the saints are waiting so long to sign him, if he does not sign by Wednesday he will count 18 million against the cap whether he is there or no. Just so everyone understands if he signs after Wednesday he would count 18 million plus whatever he signs for against the cap
