Treadwell never made a mark during his time with the Vikings. The 2016 first-round pick out of Ole Miss ultimately spent four seasons in Minnesota, hauling in 65 receptions for 701 receiving yards and two scores in 53 games (16 starts). 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.
In March, the Falcons gave Treadwell a shot on a low-cost deal. But, with Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage and Olamide Zaccheaus already locked in as the top receivers, Treadwell was facing long odds from the jump. Now, he’ll wait for his next opportunity on the taxi squad.
After falling to the Seahawks in their season opener, the Falcons will look for redemption on Sunday against the Cowboys.
