Per NFL league source… Falcons are signing former Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell – Was a first round pick in 2016.. played 13-games last season for Vikings pic.twitter.com/J4hCLZqKFL— Zach Klein (@ZachKleinWSB) March 22, 2020
Treadwell never lived up to the hype in Minnnesota, starting just 16 games in four years with the Vikings. All told, he caught 65 passes for 701 yards and two touchdowns in 53 games.
Needless to say, the bar has been lowered for the former 23rd-overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. That being said, Treadwell has a new opportunity to shine in an offense that needs another playmaker now that tight end Austin Hooper is in Cleveland.
