The Carolina Panthers have agreed to terms with free-agent wide receiver Adam Thielen, the team announced Sunday.

It is expected to be a three-year contract, sources told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Thielen reacted to the news on Twitter.

The 32-year-old Thielen was released on March 10 after failing to come to a contract resolution with the Vikings, where he has been since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2013.

Thielen was scheduled to have a $19.9-million cap hit in 2023 before being released.

The two-time Pro-Bowler will provide stability to a Panthers wide receiver room that lost star wide-out D.J. Moore in a trade to the Chicago Bears. Terrace Marshall Jr., Shi Smith, and Laviska Shenault Jr. currently fill out the Panthers' wide receiver depth chart.

Thielen has 534 catches for 6,682 receiving yards and 55 touchdowns in 135 career games.
