Vikings Breakout Star Receiver Adam Thielen Signing Autographs (Video)

Vikings Adam Thielen Signing AutographsVikings wide receiver Adam Thielen has not only been one of the NFL's best players this season, his exploits may be among the league’s best stories as well. Thielen was an undrafted player in 2014, out of Minnesota State University, where the Vikings previously held training camp from 1965 through this season. Not only was Thielen not drafted, he was not even recruited by any major schools.

Thielen grew up a Vikings fan in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, which is about 200 miles northwest of the Twin Cities. Tuesday night, Thielen and other Vikings standout receiver Stefon Diggs, each signed autographs at Fan HQ Sports Apparel and Collectibles, in the Twin Cities suburb of Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

Through 12 games this season, Thielen has 74 catches, 1,056 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns, for the 10-2 Vikings. Even though he has not scored many touchdowns, so many of his catches and yards have really helped jumpstart the Vikings, who possess the NFL's fifth best offense.

Needless to say, as a result of Thielen's play and Minnesota heritage, the 27-year-old has certainly become one of the team’s most popular players.

Number 19’s efforts have also provided him with a lot of national attention, including this recent ESPN interview, with Vikings legend Randy Moss.
