The Jaguars signed Laquon Treadwell, per a club announcement. Treadwell participated in the Jaguars’ minicamp as a tryout player earlier this week and wound up earning a spot on the 90-man roster.
Treadwell, 26, came into the league as a first-round pick for the Vikings. Scouts had high hopes for the Ole Miss product, but he has yet to reach his potential. Across four seasons in Minnesota, Treadwell recorded a total of 65 receptions for 701 yards and two scores. His best season came in 2018, when he set career-highs in receptions (35) and receiving yards (302). For what it’s worth, he finished the ’19 slate with a 20.4-yard-per-catch average but did so on just nine catches.
Last year, he hooked on with the Falcons’ practice squad and saw some time on the varsity roster. In 2020, he notched six grabs for 49 yards and two TDs in five games. Now, he’ll look to solidify his spot behind Jacksonville receivers D.J. Chark, longtime Lions WR Marvin Jones and Laviska Shenault. Phillip Dorsett and veteran returner Pharoh Cooper are also among those vying spots.
