It's so cool to see small name guys make something of themselves and get paid.

I'm glad Thielen got his money. I'm hoping Diggs earns his too (although he's a much bigger name than AT19)

If Thielen can prove he is worth the money given during this contract and Diggs proves he is also worth some big money then our offense will be looking pretty good in the future one would have to assume.

An offense is more than just two good WRs. The OL and QB situation is still a huge question mark going forward.

Usually if you have two WR's on your roster earn large contracts they are doing well. If Diggs gets a large top 10 and actually earned it, along with Thielen's contract advances year by year than means we would have a 1,400 and possibly a 1,200 yard receiver with both having 6-10 TD seasons.

Teams that tend to do that usually find success. Usually can lead to more double coverage's opening up opportunities in the run game. If we end up with receivers that can also put up those #'s that would mean our pass blocking would have improved.
