Well deserved. Thielen has developed into a very good receiver. His story is pretty awesome.

Starless wonders why he didn't sign with New England

I missed the word guaranteed in the title and though this was a steal.

3 years $17M to $27M is a huge range. I wonder what those incentives are.

I'd guess starts/playing time. MN has a crowded top 3 with Thielen, Diggs and Treadwell. Basically if Thielen keeps a first round pick on the bench, he deserves a raise.

Treadwell did that to himself. Still well deserved though for Adam Thielen.

He had a really good year with a 75% catch rating which is really good and less than 100 targets. I wonder how he'd do with around 140-150 targets

I'd like to see next year from him before we start projecting. E.g Allen Hurns.

I wish he had gyros Taylor throwing him the ball. Laughing

with a full year under Shurmur's offense, he should be even better, if he can stay healthy.
