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

Recommended Posts

Honestly, that's a steal. It's already a bit below market value, arguably, but it'll be well below market value by the time the new years actually kick in.

great hands, great body control. and a very humble guy.

make sure you look at the catch starting at 3:07.

 

You can't leave Thielen open like that.

Gosh, lucky thing the Vikings had the foresight to tie up ***STEFON DIGGS!!*** last July, for 5 years and 72 Billion dollars or whatever modest expenditure they laid out!

Had STEFON DIGGS waited until the ink was dry on the Thielen contract, he might have been able to negotiate a new deal paying him enough money to buy the Miami Marlins or build The Mexican Wall or some such!

Then again, perhaps STEFON has an escalator clause in his contract that permits, should another Vike be signed for big bucks, his own salary to soar as he did high into the Northern Lights Sky o'er Minnesota during that fabled game!

Could it be time for The 5th Annual STEFON DIGGS Appreciation Thread to remind fans of his Greatness????

Great for him. He earned every penny of it. Now they have their 2 WRs signed long term. That is smart. Now they just need to get on the same page with their QB.

Honestly, I love watching Thielen and Diggs play.  Two exceptional receivers.  If they had a good QB, they would be a great team.

Huh? How does Cousins not fall into a "good QB" category? Try again...

I'm not sure how to say it.  He's like a average-ish QB.  I think Alex Smith is better than him, and Smith seems like a good/average QB.

Packer fan here. Thielen is a beast and deserves that money. Probably deserves more but that looks like a solid deal for the Vikings.

Cousins is a top 15 QB. That should be enough.

Our problems last year weren't all his fault.

Cousins is fine he just isn't a playmaker QB. He'll have a high completion percentage and good stats he just doesn't seem to make much happen.

Agreed.  He always puts up really good looking stats, but when it's time to play a meaningful game he under-preforms.  He did it throughout his time with the Redskins, too.

Talked to cap expert Jason Fitzgerald of OverTheCap. He said it's not too hard for #Vikings to get more 2019 cap room with Adam Thielen extension. Said if his base is cut to $1 million and he gets $15M signing bonus would lower his cap number from $8.1 to $5.15M & create $3M room

What I don't understand is why don't most teams use this tactic? Someone educate me on this please.

I know Howie Roseman does this as good as anyone in the NFL. He's  being playing Chess while others play Checkers for years.
