Teams across the league are making some changes to their rosters in the hopes to regain some cap space.
With that in mind, it sounds like the NFL free agency period could become a bit more interesting thanks to the Minnesota Vikings.
According to Adam Schefter, “there’s a real possibility that the Vikings and Adam Thielen will part ways in the coming days.” If that’s the case, then Thielen would become a free agent.
There’s a real possibility that the Vikings and Adam Thielen will part ways in the coming days, allowing the two-time Pro-Bowl WR to become a free agent, per sources. The two sides will talk in coming days, but his time in Minnesota could be coming to an end.

The wide receivers available in the free agency pool aren’t all that enticing this year. However, Adam Thielen would make things interesting, as plenty of NFL teams should be interested in possibly signing him.
At the very least, NFL fans sure seem to hope their team signs the veteran receiver.

Don’t the San Francisco 49ers have enough wide receivers already?

Chicago Bears fans think they’re signing every single NFL free agent.

I’m actually not against this idea.

Is Adam Thielen the wide receiver the Dallas Cowboys need?
Adam Thielen YOU are a Dallas Cowboy

We’ll see how it all goes down. The Vikings could wait until after June 1 to move on from Thielen. Or, they could release him in the coming days as Schefter reports.
Either way, the veteran receive should garner plenty of interest from teams across the NFL.
