Until 2020

So next year is probably when he gets re-upped.

Gotta feel good as a Vikings fan - Laquan Treadwell hasn't developed, but Diggs and Thielen both turned into fine WRs.

Thielen signed his 4 year/$19.2 million deal coming off a 967/5 season in 2016 and turned around to break out further in 2017 with a 1,276/4 season so the Vikings certainly got lucky that they signed him when they did. That contract looks like a bargain right now but the Vikes may show a sign of good faith if he continues his success.

As for Treadwell, he's been the talk of the off-season, I guess. Maybe he's finally turning a corner.

Lots of change, more than I’d be willing to risk with Diggs. 

He’s a great player when healthy though.

Extremely happy to hear about Diggs.  Now I'm hoping we can get Trae Waynes signed to another contract.  He is very underrated IMO.

Thielen and Tyron Smith have two of the most non-rookie team friendly deals in the NFL...

Best core locked up in the NFL?

What do we consider locked up? Because isn't Thielen a FA next year?

"Can You Dig It Suckaaa" was a game I played with my buddies in grade school. It was H-O-R-S-E, but with the word S-U-C-K-A.

The rules? Let's say it's my turn. I smash my knuckles together as hard as I can. The next person can take the letter or attempt to "dig it" and not be a "sucka."

We were so dumb.

 

Oh, and this is a nice move for the Vikings. Diggs is a beast.

How does he rank in those categories pre 2017?
