Mike Zimmer might not be <a href="http://www.4allonline.com/...eterson-jerseys.html">Adrian Peterson Womens Jersey</a> present at OTAs, but Adam Thielen isn't letting his guard down because of it.

The Minnesota <a href="http://www.authenticpatriotssale.com/...tt-jersey-c-1_3.html">Andre Tippett Authentic Jersey</a> Vikings wide receiver spoke to media following Wednesday's OTA session, and the breakout star of 2016 was quick to point out that just because Zimmer isn't standing on the sidelines, it doesn't mean his effect on the team is any less.

 

“We know he’s here, because we know he’s watching everything,” Thielen said of Zimmer via Vikings.com. “He’ll get after us if <a href="http://www.authenticramsproshop.com/...roy-hill-jersey.html">Troy Hill Authentic Jersey</a> we’re not doing things right.”We definitely feel his presence," added Thielen.

Thielen exploded <a href="http://www.bengalsproclub.com/aj-green-jersey-c-1_2.html">http://www.bengalsproclub.com/...c-1_2.html</a> on to the scene in a season ago, nearly becoming the first Vikings player to eclipse 1,000 yards receiving since Sidney Rice accomplished the feat in 2009. After such an impressive season, Thielen knows that he's no longer an unknown commodity to defenses around the NFL.

“I feel like there were <a href="http://www.cheapnflteamjerseys.com/...pkowski-jerseys.html">http://www.cheapnflteamjerseys.com/...rseys.html</a> times when I maybe wasn’t running the best routes, and I was getting away with it,” Thielen said. “But guys know me now. They’ve seen film on me, and they’re going to know my tendencies, so I need to make sure I’m bringing my best game.”

 

Much of Thielen's success <a href="www.latestcheapjerseystore.com">www.latestcheapjerseystore.com</a> was down to his rapport with quarterback Sam Bradford. The duo instantly connected in 2016, but despite that, Thielen knows that the OTA sessions give them the opportunity to get back in the groove.

 

“I think trust is important with everything that you do,” Thielen said. “We were able to develop that last year, but it’s still a new year now, so I have to develop that again this year.
