Thielen deal shows Vikings' commitment to keep core together

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) Two years away from free agency, Adam Thielen was among the best bargains in the NFL.

Facing a tight salary cap situation, the Minnesota Vikings could have waited to reward Thielen, their two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver who was tied for fourth in the league with 113 receptions last season.

Waiting, and creating potential tension with team cornerstones, hasn't been their approach. So the Vikings and Thielen agreed to a four-year, $64 million contract extension last week.
