Former first-round draft pick Laquon Treadwell is getting another opportunity to make it in the NFL.

Treadwell has signed with the Jaguars after participating in their minicamp on a tryout basis.

The Vikings selected Treadwell with the 23rd overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, but he never lived up to expectations. In four seasons with the Vikings he totaled just 65 catches for 701 yards and two touchdowns. Last year Treadwell played for the Falcons and caught six passes for 49 yards and two touchdowns.

The 26-year-old Treadwell may be on his last chance in the NFL as he tries to make the Jaguars’ roster.

  1. Actually a really good kid. Never recovered is form after that gruesome injury in college.

  2. Sorry Jags fans. He doesn’t have it. Not even to be a possession receiver. The Vikings tried everything. Bust!

  3. I hope he can have some kind of career in the NFL but he’ll have to improve a ton from what we saw in Minny.

  4. He’s camp fodder. If you’re not good enough for the Vikings, you’re not good enough anywhere.

  5. He’s a good downfield blocker but not a good route runner and not very smart in the playbook. Maybe will make it as a WR 4 or 5?

  6. Good guy, perhaps limited physically, but one thing is for sure: if you are counting at all on Treadwell it is a dark and gloomy future that looms ahead.

  7. “Actually a really good kid. Never recovered is form after that gruesome injury in college.“

    This is really the truth. People want to hate on him and call him a bust but this knee injury was supposed to be repairable and the prognosis was good until after the fact. He is less than he was before. He worked hundreds of hours trying to strengthen it. I am not sure about the remarks that he was not a good route runner. I heard only positives about his work ethic and coachability. But the knee never came back. Lots of good reasons to hate on the Vikings, go ahead if you must but this kids life’s work and dreams were dashed in a moment and his chance to be a big time NFL receiver ended there. Good luck LT. Keeping working hard.

  8. He should gain 50 ponds and become a TE — that’s where his skill set lies.
