EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - He grew up a Minnesota Vikings fan and now he's playing for them.
Adam Thielen, a Detroit Lakes native, is literally living a dream.
He is running routes alongside Pro Bowlers Kyle Rudolph and Greg Jennings, but he's not at all star struck.
Thielen, who played his college ball at Minnesota State University-Mankato has every intention of cracking this roster.
So far so good too, he's been impressing coaches throughout OTA's and the week's minicamp. Early on, he's shown great hands and a strong work ethic.
