Intro
And now it's time for a training camp today with Neil Roberts and the Minnesota Vikings.

00;00;05;17 - 00;00;18;27
Neil Roberts
He's nine years in the league and he knows the division inside and out. Adam Thielen joins us. And Adam, same team, same division, players exchange. But boy, Green Bay has been a thorn in the side forever. But I know all you guys can control is what you guys can do on the field. I mean, we brought over their defensive end from a couple years ago. So. Smith he's going to be a nice addition there, just watching these names go back and forth. Has to be fun and exciting and anticipation building, huh?

00;00;28;11 - 00;00;39;19
Adam Thielen
It is for sure. You know, we got a lot of confidence in this building, this organization that we can compete with the best. But we got to go out there and prove it. And you never really know what you're going to get until the season starts rolling and you start seeing some of these teams on tape because
you look like a at a Cincinnati Bengals. You know, last year I think everybody was writing them off at the beginning of season and then they had gone to the Super Bowl. So you got to be prepared every single week.

00;00;47;12 - 00;00;51;18
Adam Thielen
You got to lock in, you got to play your best football to win games in this league, and you can't treat anyone lightly.

00;00;51;24 - 00;00;54;00
Neil Roberts
All right. Hey, we'll talk off the field stuff when we come back.

00;01;58;12 - 00;02;10;29
Neil Roberts
Adam Thielen Vikings wide receiver. And Adam, I know since day one being part of the community, not just as a player back in Mankato, but as soon as we became a Viking, starting your own charitable foundations. I just wanted to touch on that and how valuable that is to you. I know. And the time and effort you and your wife put into that stuff.

00;02;14;10 - 00;02;23;16
Adam Thielen
Yeah, my wife and I, we knew that this community has done so much for us that we wanted to make sure that we were kind of living out that deal for Jesus. And we believe that he gave us a platform to give back. And I think that's something that's very important to us. And then we started our foundation to be able to give back to this community. And it's been so fun because we didn't really know where it was going to go when we started it. We just knew we wanted to help and give back in areas that need it. And it's been cool to see where it's gone.

00;02;36;15 - 00;02;42;29
Neil Roberts
All right. Hey, Adam, thanks for your time, as always. Really appreciate you. Have a great 2022 and hopefully you're in purple for years to come. Horizontal.

00;02;42;29 - 00;02;44;09
Adam Thielen
Sounds good to me. I appreciate it.

00;02;44;17 - 00;02;51;06
Neil Roberts
Adam. Feel that, everybody. Hey, that concludes this edition. If you missed one, check us on the website training camp, Today.com and till next time. I'm Neil Roberts.
