In fact, there was chatter of there being mutual interest between both sides to get a deal done.
The entire offseason Brees has reiterated he'll be playing for the Black and Gold in 2018.
Another player who Strief mentioned was quarterback Drew Brees, a player he spent most of his career working to protect as one of the starters on the offensive line.
With each day Brees and the Saints do not agree on a new deal, the likelihood he winds up elsewhere increases. Brees' agent is Tom Condon. A deal can not be official until Wednesday.
Per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, the Vikings did that on Monday - and they weren't only team to do so.
The Vikings aren't the only team that has checked with Brees and his agent regarding the future Hall of Famer's availability. However, most expected a deal to be in place before the 39-year-old had an opportunity to talk with other teams. Keenum started most of the 2017 season and played above expectations in leading the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game.

China: Reform Positions Xi to be 'President For Life'
Xi's official titles are nice, but "core leader" of the party - which he was declared in late 2016 - puts Xi in historic company. The abolition of the limit of two five-year terms for the presidency caps Xi's repeated maneuvers to cement his power.
It would really only be newsworthy if the Vikings hadn't reached out to Brees's camp.
For the Vikings, Brees offers a chance to maximize their Super Bowl chances over the next year or two.
Minnesota has reportedly emerged as the favorite in the sweepstakes to land Kirk Cousins, arguably the best unrestricted quarterback to ever hit the open market in his prime.
Minnesota is reportedly set to offer Cousins the highest average annual salary in National Football League history. He was also on the Super-Bowl winning squad during the 2009 season.
Drew Brees is no doubt elite - he hasn't passed for less than 4,000 yards in a season since 2005, but this marriage isn't likely to happen. Strief made the announcement during a news conference at the Saints Facility in Metairie Monday.
