Vikings check on free-agent QB Brees

Are Saints in danger of losing Drew Brees to the... Vikings

Drew Brees is expected to re-sign with the New Orleans Saints. Let's see the 12-year Saints' QB shock everybody. 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.

The 33-year-old, who played his college football at Louisville, was originally selected by the Steelers in the fifth round (170th pick overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft.

"My career here has exceeded my wildest imagination", Strief said. "I want to be a Saint, and I think they want to have me back".

NFL free agency does not actually begin until Wednesday, March 14 at 4 p.m. ET when the new league year starts.

At a press conference Monday, Strief was moved to tears when announcing his retirement from the NFL.

Strief appeared in nine games as a rookie and spent the first part of his career as a valuable backup while learning behind Jon Stinchcomb. Many would argue the Vikings entered their "Super Bowl window" last season, and the one thing missing from the roster now is a quality starting quarterback.

This is very vague, but who cares?

"I mean, consistent. You knew what you were getting and the value, you can't overstate that enough". At the scouting combine, both general manager Mickey Loomis and coach Sean Payton voiced confidence that something would get done, which is what everyone involved with the organization has said both publicly and privately all offseason.

That willingness to play one year at a time has been Brees' version of a hometown discount.

When it finally does get done, chances are Brees' contract will look an bad lot like that last extension he signed just four days before the 2016 season opener. "And so, this is a pretty special day".

The emergence of Ryan Ramcyzk, however, helped pave the way for Strief to decide his future.

Pittsburgh is coming off a 2017-18 campaign in which it won 13 regular-season games but lost in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Why would the Broncos not offer it if they are going to make an offer to Kirk Cousins?
