Jacksonville Jaguars release former Ole Miss star wide receiver
Former Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell was reportedly was released Tuesday by the Jacksonville Jaguars. In 2016, Treadwell was the first-round draft choice of the Minnesota Vikings.
Treadwell spent 4 years with the Vikings but never seemed to find a fit in the Vikings’ system. Last year, he wasn’t re-signed by the Vikings and landed on the practice squad of the Atlanta Falcons.
He did end up with some playing time last year with the team, catching 2 touchdown passes. While at Ole Miss, Treadwell became the school’s all-time leader in catches (202) and finished third in school history in receiving yards with 2,393.
In 2015, he was second-team All-American and was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, which is given to the nation’s top wide receiver.
Many thought that, when Treadwell signed with the Jags, it might be an uphill battle for him to make the team. The Jaguars also released former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow earlier in training camp.
