MILWAUKEE — Adam Thielen has never had a bobblehead made in his likeness. So two bobbleheads for the Minnesota Vikings wide receiver is worth a head nod or two.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled two officially licensed bobbleheads of the Detroit Lakes, Minn., native. One is in his Minnesota State, Mankato college uniform and the other as a Viking.

"Thielen's rise to prominence in the NFL is one of the best stories in football," Phil Sklar, co-founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, said in a statement. "As a fan favorite and star player, we knew it was time for bobbleheads of Thielen."

Thielen went undrafted in 2013 but caught on with the Vikings. He lead the Vikings in receiving yards in 2016 and in 2017, had 1,276 receiving yards with four touchdowns as Minnesota reached the NFC Championship game.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum was announced in November 2014. The HOF and Museum hosted a Preview Exhibit in 2016, and opened a permanent location last month in Milwaukee
