The Minnesota Vikings have reached an extension with wide receiver Adam Thielen. He also set a career best with nine touchdown receptions and became the first National Football League player to start a season with eight straight games of 100+ receiving yards. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the deal comes with $35 million in guarantees. He now has long-term stability with a much bigger paycheck.

Six years later, Thielen is now not only regarded as one of the best receivers to ever play for the Vikings, but he is also among the best current pass catchers in the entire NFL.

To say that Thielen has earned the extension is an understatement.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (19) talks to quarterback Kirk Cousins (8) on the sidelines in the fourth quarter against Chicago Bears at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on December 30, 2018.

Though Thielen's existing deal - which made him the NFL's 30th-highest paid receiver, in terms of average annual value - ran through the 2020 season, it had become obvious the receiver was due for a raise. He barely missed the mark in 2016 when he totaled 967 yards receiving. He's posted back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns after becoming the franchise's first 1,000-yard receiver since Sidney Rice in 2009.
