NFL Rumors: 3 Potential Landing Spots for Adam Thielen

The Minnesota Vikings are officially releasing Adam Thielen, and he is now one of the most notable free-agent wide receivers on the market because of it. As a result, the longtime Viking is expected to garner plenty of interest around the league. Here are three possible landing spots for the nine-year veteran. 

Green Bay Packers: Could Thielen join one of the Vikings' biggest rivals in the Green Bay Packers? It is certainly possible. After all, the Packers are coming off a down season, and a major reason behind it was their struggles at the wide receiver position. Therefore, perhaps the Packers could make a big effort to bring in the veteran. 

Kansas City Chiefs: The Kansas City Chiefs will have a big hole to fill if JuJu Smith-Schuster leaves them during free agency. However, one way that they could help fix this issue is by bringing in Thielen. Thielen would provide them with another experienced receiver, and he could thrive playing with a superstar QB like Patrick Mahomes. 

New York Jets: The New York Jets are currently big players in the Aaron Rodgers sweepstakes. Although adding a star QB is a necessity for them, they also need to improve at the WR position as well. Thus, don't be surprised if Thielen now becomes one of their biggest free-agent targets because of it.
