Vikings lock up star wide receiver Adam Thielen to 4-year deal, report says

Adam Thielen has averaged 107 catches with 1,324 yards and 6 touchdowns over the last two years.

Kirk Cousins is going to have some stability at wide receiver of the next few years.

The Vikings have given wide receiver Adam Thielen a four-year extension worth $64 million, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

The deal could be worth as much as $73 million, according to the report.

According to NFL Media, the deal includes $35 million guaranteed.

Thielen's agent appears to have confirmed the deal on Instagram.

Thielen has averaged 102 catches with 1,324 yards and 6.5 touchdowns over the last two years. He made the Pro Bowl in both seasons.

He is coming off of a career-best season in which he caught 113 passes for 1,373 yards and nine touchdowns with Cousins as his quarterback.

However, the two did butt heads from time to time.

In one of the Vikings' last games of the year, the two were seen arguing on the sideline. They eventually downplayed the incident, but it was certainly an interesting interaction.
