Minnesota Vikings Officially Releasing Longtime WR

After much speculation, the Minnesota Vikings are officially releasing Adam Thielen, according to NFL insider Kevin Seifert.

The Vikings and Thielen were working on restructuring his deal, but an agreement could not be agreed upon. As a result, the longtime Viking officially is set to become a free agent, and he should receive a good amount of interest around the league because of it. 

Although Thielen's numbers dropped a bit in 2022, he still proved to be an effective receiver. In 17 games, he had six touchdowns, 716 receiving yards, and 70 receptions. As a result of this, he is easily now one of the top wide receiver free agents available. With that, it also does not hurt that he is a two-time Pro Bowler. Therefore, expect the Minnesota native to find a new home fairly quickly once free agency officially begins.
