Drew Brees is staying with the New Orleans Saints

  • The hunt for the elusive franchise quarterback is on again

As for Kirk Cousins, ProFootball Talk is reporting via a source that the Vikings and New York Jets are the only two teams who have shown interest in Cousins thus far.

"There was no doubt in our minds, I think both myself and the Saints, that we were gonna get a deal done", Brees told ESPN's Mike Triplett. If the team has to cough up close to $30 million per year to land Cousins, that defense is going to be torn apart down the road. He remained productive within a toned-down New Orleans offense that featured less passing by Brees and more running by Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Brees will be in a Saints uniform in 2018, and most likely 2019 as well. Signing Brees to a two-year, $60 million deal would allow Minnesota to maximize its window while also keeping the cap clean for when Brees eventually hangs it up.

Brees has thrown for 70,445 yards with 488 touchdown passes and 228 interceptions in 248 career contests since being made a second-round selection in the 2001 NFL Draft by the then-San Diego Chargers. And Brees will officially be free to sign with other teams on Wednesday. That's not to say the Saints don't offer a favorable situation - they do - but Brees would be a great fit in Denver or Minnesota for that matter. 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.

While Brees stays put, the man who helped break Saints' hearts in the playoffs is on the move.

Keenum's signing would mean that the Broncos can turn their attention to plugging other holes in their line-up.

This brings the Minnesota Vikings into the fold, arguably the most glamorous landing spot for a free-agent quarterback in the National Football League right now.
