The Kansas City Chiefs have yet to re-sign JuJu Smith-Schuster, have attended the workout for Odell Beckham, Jr, and are heavily scouting some of the top wide receivers in the NFL draft. However, a report on Tuesday indicated the team might be eyeing former Minnesota Vikings Wide Receiver, Adam Thielen.
Per source, the #Chiefs and Adam Thielen have discussed a potential deal. Plenty of other suitors are interested, but Kansas City is a real team to watch.

The Vikings cut Thielen last week in a salary dump move. Still, the 32-year-old receiver might be past his prime in some regards, but his receiving talents remain. In Kansas City, he would not be the team’s top wide receiver. Assuming, the team signs Smith-Schuster, something I’m told will happen, Thielen would become a rotation receiver with Kadarius Toney, Skyy Moore, MVS, and Justin Ross. As of this writing, he was scheduled to visit the Carolina Panthers this week, but a report surfaced late Tuesday evening, that Theilen was spotted in a Kansas City restaurant with his family. Since the Vikings already cut him, he is free to visit with NFL teams before the official start of free agency.
One of my clients saw him yesterday at a restaurant. Their son was wearing a Vikings jersey and he told him nice jersey, he used to play for them
