Vikings extend WR Adam Thielen (4 years, $64M)

Well an extension would mean four more years on top of the two he still had so it could not affect his cap number this year at all.

Looking long term, the Vikes don't need to worry about extending recent first round picks (2015-2017) so there's a bit of room there.

Or that someone is actually not "overpaid"?

Vikings now signed through at least 2021: Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Danielle Hunter, Anthony Barr, Eric Kendricks, Linval Joseph, Harrison Smith, Riley Reiff, Shamar Stephen, Mike Hughes. Excellent foundation.

They’re building their team through the WR position? Lol 

overpay. Slot guys are dime a dozen.

He's not just a slot guy. He plays on the outside all the time. Diggs also moves into the slot often. 

Considering that Thielen was undrafted and Diggs was a 5th round pick, they got great return. Treadwell and Patterson on the other hand.

He was one of the most underpaid players in the NFL, so good for him...

He's from Minnesota and was undrafted, didn't you know?;)
