The veteran wide receiver says he’s interested in playing this season so should the Minnesota Vikings try and figure out how to add him to their roster?
Unfortunately, Thielen has been dealing with a hamstring injury recently and he hasn’t been much of a contributor for the Vikings in their last three games. Diggs has been able to pick up a bunch of the slack, but Minnesota’s offense is obviously much better off when both of their top receivers are out on the field.
When exactly Thielen will be able to return to a useful form is unknown at this point. He reportedly won’t play this Sunday when the Vikings take on the Dallas Cowboys and he could end up missing even more time after that.
Speaking of the Cowboys, one of their former receivers, Dez Bryant, announced on Wednesday that he’s looking to sign with a team this season now that he’s recovered from the torn Achilles he suffered last year.
With Thielen’s status and health currently up in the air, should Minnesota consider figuring out a way to add Bryant to their roster for the rest of the season? To answer this, let’s explore the pros and cons of signing the veteran receiver and see if it would be worth it for the Vikings.
