The Minnesota Vikings have reportedly made their plans with Pro Bowl wide receiver Adam Thielen extremely clear to opposing teams. He's not going anywhere.
Minnesota is off to a brutal start this season, as the Vikings have disappointed at 1-5 on the season. Trade rumors have swirled for several of the team's top players, including Thielen.
However, Thielen isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler reported on Sunday morning that the Vikings will not be trading Thielen.
"Despite teams needing WRs and Vikings’ slow start, team has made clear it has no plans to trade Adam Thielen, per sources. Thielen has not been shopped despite rumors about Browns, others," he reported on Sunday morning.
Thielen has 32 catches for 415 yards and seven touchdowns this season. It's been a frustrating year for everyone in Minnesota.
“I think if I had to describe this season in one word it would be ‘frustrating,'” Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph told PFT. “And I would say frustrating because when you look at the body of work that we’ve had over the last six weeks here, you sit here at 1-5 but you look at the fact that we’ve played three teams that were three of the last undefeated teams. We were in each of those games lost two of them by one point.”
Minnesota is set to take on the Packers at 1 p.m. E.T. today.
