Jaguars sign former first-round pick Laquon Treadwell

Former Minnesota Vikings' first-round pick Laquon Treadwell is getting another opportunity in the NFL. 

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Treadwell has signed with the Jaguars after participating in their minicamp on a tryout basis. 

Minnesota selected Treadwell with the 23rd overall pick in 2016, but he never lived up to the hype. In four seasons with the Vikings, he had just 65 catches for 701 yards and two touchdowns. 

The 26-year-old spent the 2020 campaign with the Atlanta Falcons, catching six passes for 49 yards and two scores in five games. 

Treadwell now joins a group of receivers that includes DJ Chark Jr., Phillip Dorsett and Marvin Jones Jr.
