Jaguars call up Laquon Treadwell for Sunday

Last year, the Jaguars gave 2015 second-round receiver Devin Smith a chance to play on Sunday, bumping him from the practice squad. This week, receiver Laquon Treadwell gets the opportunity instead.

The Jaguars have announced that the 2016 first-rounder has been elevated from the practice squad for the visit from the Broncos.

Maybe it’s a reward for info Treadwell possibly gave to the Jacksonville coaching staff, given his familiarity with Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and Broncos offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, both of whom were in Minnesota during Treadwell’s time there.

If so, it will take a lot more than a little inside information to give Jacksonville its first win since Week One of the 2020 season. Bridgewater and the Broncos looked very good against the Giants last Sunday. The Jaguars did not look good against the Texans.

  1. Go back and watch the college tape on Treadwell, and tell me you didn’t vomit. It’s the best example of lack of effort I’ve ever seen on a football field. I wouldn’t have signed this kid to a free agent contract, yet he was a first round pick. His NFL career hasn’t surprised me one bit. Guys that aren’t willing to try don’t last long. Guys that don’t give a hoot don’t last long. Some coaches think they can change a kid. I’m always hopeful, but not confident. Now go back and watch a highlight tape of him in college. He looks like he could be a great receiver. Bottom line: watch the game tapes, not a highlight tape.

  2. My Redskins drafted Treadwell’s lazy twin, Josh Doctson a few picks before him. I can’t remember ever seeing first round WR’s give less of a damn about their jobs!

    You’ve recently said Luke Falk and Mason Rudolph according to you are franchise caliber qbs according to the game tape so you saying you were right on any scouting in the past by jumping on an after the fact bust is highly skeptical and doesnt increase your credibility.

  4. Like the Josh Doctson reference. Didn’t our Vikings sign him, too. They love those overachieving WRs.

  5. How bout those overachiever WR’s ? Like Thielen, Diggs… JJ? Yeah they definitely missed on Treadslow, but have had reasonably good success at that position. Looks like KJ Wright has done well this season too.

  6. People say picking a QB at the top of the draft is a 50/50 proposition, but I think WR is even worse. For every Justin Jefferson it seems like there are two busts like Treadwell and Doctson.

  7. Those aforementioned overachieving WRs will undoubtedly carry our Vikings to another super bowl win.
