Would Cowboys sack Dak Prescott if Drew Brees hit the open market

Would Cowboys sack Dak Prescott if Drew Brees hit the open market

Pelissero's colleague Ian Rapoport said other teams have done the same.

Brees, 39, is expected to return to the New Orleans Saints. Other teams such as the Denver Broncos are also looking for a franchise quarterback and they could take shots at Brees and Cousins as well.

Strief, 34, was selected by the Saints in the seventh round of the 2006 NFL Draft.

Players can't sign until the league's new year begins at 3 p.m. Wednesday, but Brees, as of now, is going to be a free agent on Wednesday and the Vikings have plenty of experience bringing in an aging and future Hall of Fame quarterback.

Much of this remains hypothetical, and the most likely result is still Brees signing with the Saints. He was part of New Orleans' Super Bowl-winning team from the 2009 season, and he became a regular starter in 2011, staying in that role until early 2017 when a knee injury cut his season short after two games.

All Toys 'R' Us stores could soon close
There is only one Toys "R" Us in Texoma which is located in Wichita Falls near Sikes Senter Mall. That's bad news for toy companies like Mattel and Hasbro , whose stocks are already falling .

Still, it's not all surprising that this deal is coming down to the wire. This may largely be a reason for the strong interest from Cousins and could potentially sway Brees to consider if the contract situation in New Orleans doesn't work out. We are just getting over a ridiculous weekend full of trades.

"I could not have been more fortunate to have Sean Payton as a head coach for the last 12 years", Strief said. And it included three years that automatically voided for salary-cap purposes. My greatest drive as a player was not to let you down.

It would really only be newsworthy if the Vikings hadn't reached out to Brees's camp.

There's no reason to expect anything different this time around - even though both sides are adding a little last-minute drama to the equation.
