The Jaguars have re-signed wide receiver Laquon Treadwell. The former first-round pick will stick around in Duval for another season.
Treadwell was originally drafted 23rd overall by the Minnesota Vikings in 2016. He failed to live up to the expectations that come with being a first-round pick and only lasted four seasons with the Vikings. Treadwell signed with the Falcons in the spring of 2020 but didn't make the final roster. He reverted to Atlanta's practice squad, where he spent the remainder of the season.
The Jaguars singed Treadwell after a rash of injuries at the wide receiver position during the summer of 2021. He didn't make the initial 53-man roster but did sign on to the Jags practice squad. With injuries and poor play plaguing the Jags' receiver group, Treadwell got the call-up and developed into one of the few bright spots for Trevor Lawrence and the offense. He racked up 33 catches on 51 targets and scored one touchdown.
At 26 years old, Treadwell has played in 70 career games, starting 22 of them. He figures to compete for a role in a passing offense that features Christian Kirk, Dan Arnold, Evan Engram, Marvin Jones, Zay Jones, Jamal Agnew, and Laviska Shenault.
