Reports: Laquon Treadwell's time in Minnesota could be nearing end
Former Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell may not be playing the 2019 season in Minnesota.
Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reported that the Vikings have Treadwell on the trading block.
“I’m told that, with the emergence of Chad Beebe, former first-round receiver Laquon Treadwell is available again. And while no one’s moving anything significant for him, maybe there’s a team out there that’s willing to give up the kind of Day 3 pick the Vikings just surrendered,” Breer wrote, referring to Minnesota recently trading a fifth-round pick for a kicker.
Letting go of a former first-round selection for a Day 3 pick shows just how much the Vikings have soured on Treadwell, but it’s hard to blame them. In three seasons, Treadwell has played in 40 games (15 starts), recording 56 receptions for 517 yards on 91 targets. Obviously, the Vikings were expecting more than 1.4 catches per game for 12.9 yards. Over at Rotoworld, Breer’s report is being interpreted that Treadwell is likely to be cut if Minnesota cannot trade him. Maybe a change of scenery will bring back the Treadwell we saw at Ole Miss.
