Free agent receiver Adam Thielen has found a new home.
Nine days after the Vikings released him, Thielen has agreed to terms with the Panthers. He announced the deal on Instagram just before the team did. Thielen visited Carolina last week.
The Panthers needed to rebuild their receiving corps after trading DJ Moore to the Bears as part of the deal for the No. 1 overall pick, which will deliver a franchise quarterback. Carolina now has seven receivers on their roster, including Terrace Marshall, Jr., Laviska Shenault, and Shi Smith.
The team also has interest in signing free agent receiver D.J. Chark.
In 2022, Thielen caught 70 passes for 716 yards and six touchdowns.
The two-time Pro Bowler has 6,682 yards and 55 touchdowns in his career.
