WR gets $64 million contract extension from Vikings

Adam Thielen has been one of the most productive wide receivers in the NFL the past few years and is being compensated accordingly.

Thielen and the Minnesota Vikings have agreed to a four year contract extension, according to his agency. They say the deal pays him $16 million per year on average and can be worth as much as $73 million.

The four-year deal was confirmed by The Institute for Athletes on Instagram, which said: “Congrats to our guy @athielen19 on his well deserved four-year extension with the @vikings!”

The undrafted receiver has been a star the last two seasons. In 2017, he had 91 catches for 1,276 yards and four touchdowns. Last season he had 113 catches for 1,373 yards and nine touchdowns. The Vikings should now have him under contract during his prime seasons.
