Spent nine seasons with the Vikings The #Vikings are releasing two-time Pro Bowl WR Adam Thielen today, per sources. A onetime undrafted free agent from Minnesota State who went on to catch 55 touchdown passes for his hometown team, Thielen has plenty left in the tank at age 32 and wants to land with a contender. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter) FF Today's Take: Thielen has spent nine seasons with the Vikings with the last two playing second fiddle to Justin Jefferson. By the end of last season, Thielen was becoming the fourth option in the passing game behind TE T.J. Hockenson and K.J. Osbourn. It's plausible Thielen can find more targets with another team but his fantasy value is likely capped at a low-end WR2 given his age (32).
Signing Jefferson to an extension is a no-brainer, but one issue could bog down negotiations: the Vikings' plan at quarterback.
