Rookie wide receiver Rodney Adams made the Vikings 53-man roster over the weekend.

So how did he celebrate? He went to the Minnesota State Fair of course!

Adams went to the animal barn, gave his two-cents on the food, struggled to win a prize at the Midway and even did some people watching. 

He's already a veteran of the Great Minnesota Together.

The wide receiver was selected in the fifth round of the NFL Draft in May after four impressive seasons at the University of South Florida.
