Momentum for a reunion between the Saints and TE Jimmy Graham is building, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo tweeted Monday morning, roughly a half-hour after teams and agents could officially start negotiating.

The front-runners to be the Minnesota Vikings quarterback for the 2018 NFL season still have to be Case Keenum or Kirk Cousins, but we will have to wait and see what happens in free agency or possibly the NFL Draft to see what direction the team goes at the most important position in sports. 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.

He called Brees "the single greatest motivation for me as a player" while talking about his tireless work ethic.

One of the most prized free agents in the National Football League this year is starting to see teams step up.

Strief said he felt "indebted" to Payton and Loomis for giving him the opportunity and never seriously considered leaving for any other teams when he had the chance - even before he married a New Orleans native. However, most expected a deal to be in place before the 39-year-old had an opportunity to talk with other teams. It is now March 9, five days until Brees's contract expires and the $18 million in dead money hits the Saints, and no deal has been agreed on.

However, Ozil wouldn't be denied his 50th EPL assist for long. "The spirit and desire was good". It shows a huge level of motivation and intelligence, and he shows plenty of that.

The NFC South, in particular, has three legit championship contenders in the Saints (with Brees), Panthers, and obviously the Falcons. He was named MVP when the Saints beat the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV.

The Vikings aren't the only team that has checked with Brees and his agent regarding the future Hall of Famer's availability.

Much of this remains hypothetical, and the most likely result is still Brees signing with the Saints.

Me too, Mr. Mays.
