Despite some talk that he could be on the way out, Vikings receiver Adam Thielen is remaining in Minnesota.

Thielen announced today through his representatives that he has restructured his contract with the Vikings.

“I guess you can’t get rid of me yet. I’m super excited to be back in purple, to ultimately try to bring a championship to this city that so much deserves it,” Thielen said in a video posted on Twitter. “I can’t wait to get back to work and really build on something special.”

Thielen had been slated to have a $16.8 million cap hit this season, and the restructure will likely bring that number down significantly.

  1. “I can’t wait to get back to work and really build on something special.”
    One playoff in four years is special? okay

  2. Hard to win a championship if you can’t even win your division or make the playoffs.

    Hence. Why he says “build” something special. If you’re going to attack something at least understand what you’re attacking first.

  4. So we’ll continue to see lame td celebrations when the Vikings are down 2 scores. Thielen is a clown.

  5. Glad to see him back. And nice to see he has a sense of humor about all the rumors.

    Good player. Wish Adam’s had this guys attitude
    Apples and oranges . Adams negotiated with the Packers for 2 yrs and they refused to sign him . Thielen got a deal so Adams has every right to have an “attitude” against a team that refused to sign him to a contract even though he was one the best of WRs in football .

  7. Great receiver, route runner, and attitude guy! Glad he’s staying with us!
    Signed, a fellow Mankato state university graduate.

  8. It’s not possible to dislike Adam Thielen, even if he didn’t have his amazing underdog path to the NFL. He’s just a guy that loves what he does and doing it in his home state. And his million dollar smile that makes you wanna grab a drink with him and just shoot the breeze sharing stories

  9. He might have been able to help GB a little had they somehow been able to acquire him . . . #3 WR, maybe. They would have had to deprogram him from the 60+ plus years of futility culture, though.

  10. One of at least 3 team leaders that betrayed unwillingness to do whatever it takes to win by refusing vaccination. They cost the team wins, a playoff spot, Zimmer and Spielman their jobs, and now they’ve all been re-upped with their contracts. Come on Kwesi

  11. We’ll take him off ur hands.

    Starved Eagles WR corps.

    So, what he refused to get vaccinated? If so, not cool and we’ll pass.

  12. Sure are a lot of surly Packer fans when it comes to wide receiver talk. I wonder why.

  13. Almost as salty as us Viking fans when the conversation turns to championships . . .

  14. I’m super excited to be back in purple,
    Love that guys on this team love being on this team

  15. Yeah, they don’t have to be concerned about winning, just happy to be on a team . …

  16. Cousins, Jefferson, Theilen, Cook, Irv Smith Jr., (WR3 to be decided) seems like a pretty decent offensive skill player roster to me.

  17. Mr “I had one good ten game stretch and haven’t done anything else in my career” is back!

  18. “Pretty decent offensive skill player roster” . . . but can they win anything?
