Ex-Patriot turned broadcaster suggests Vikings reached out to Tom Brady

"The Vikings reached out."

In their search for a Kirk Cousins replacement, the Vikings reportedly reached to future Hall of Famer Tom Brady to gauge his interest in taking the helm in Minnesota.

Speaking on his daily radio show on 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston, former Patriots QB Scott Zolak told co-host Marc Bertrand Monday that the Vikings "reached out" to Tom Brady. Zolak made the claim in a segment where the two were discussing Bengals fans wanting Brady to join their squad after Joe Burrow's season-ending injury last Thursday night.

Brady in purple, throwing to the Vikings' plethora of offensive talent, with one of the best pass blocking lines in the league is certainly an exciting prospect as the team attempts to hunt down the Lions for the NFC North crown.

Zolak refused to offer any more specifics but earlier in the conversation noted that seven-time Super Bowl champ "is done." Brady has been quick to mention he's happy with his decision to retire for good whenever the topic of a potential return is brought up.

Makes you wonder what Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell meant when he said, "You wouldn’t believe some of the things on my cell phone," the day after Cousins suffered a season-ending Achilles injury.

Was he referencing a conversation with GOAT?

Not like it's mattered too much with the Passtronaut doing just fine in Minnesota. Josh Dobbs has thrown for 647 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for another 131 yards three rushing touchdowns since joining the Vikings at the trade deadline.
