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

Neil Roberts
The nine year vet out of Minnesota State, all world wide receiver Adam Thielen joins us. And Adam, hey, new coach, new system, what do you think?

Adam Thielen
Yeah, it's been great. Obviously a lot of learning and kind of just getting on the same page with the staff and quarterbacks and just enjoying being back here around the guys and being in a building with a new fresh start and great leadership.

Neil Roberts
And look at the wide receiver group each year. It seems like the couple two guys come in like Smith-Marsette and you got Nailor obviously Smith-Marsette senior too, but Naylor's in year one. Albert Wilson over. I don't know if I've seen more speed at the receiver position for the Vikings since you've been a Vikings. Would you agree with that or what do you think?

Adam Thielen
Yeah, not only speed, but just have guys that can do a lot of different things. They're not just speed guys. They can run routes and do kind of everything. So it's been an impressive group to watch through OTAs and now starting the training camp and excited what that means for us as a team going into the season

Neil Roberts
Adams reunited as an old teammate. We'll talk about that when we come back.

Neil Roberts
With Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen. Adam, during the off season, the Vikings added Chris Reed, a name you're familiar with teammates of years back in Mankato. Who would never thunk it, right? Both guys. Undrafted free agents. Seven, nine years later, you're not your nine. He's your seven. I think they'd be teammates with the Vikings. That's pretty cool.

Adam Thielen
Oh, yeah. Super exciting for me. And it's always been fun to see him in the league. You know, anytime you get a guy that's from your school is exciting to see him in the NFL. But not only that, to be able to play to be seven, eight years in the league. Not only that, I played with him. So it's pretty cool and special. And then now being on the same team is even more special. So excited to have him here. He's going to help us create depth for that room and create competition and hopefully we're going to need him in the season and moving forward. So excited have him here.

Neil Roberts
Thanks for joining us. And best in 2022.

Adam Thielen
Absolutely.

Neil Roberts
Thank you. All right. Adam Thielen with us, everybody. That concludes this one. Until next time, I'm Neil Roberts.
