Atlanta Falcons Sign Former Vikings First-Round Pick Laquon Treadwell
Laquon Treadwell will be experiencing a new, fresh start in 2020. The former first-round draft selection of the Minnesota Vikings has signed with Atlanta.
Treadwell, selected 23rd overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, has never lived up to his ability during his time in Minnesota. The former first-round pick totaled 65 catches for 701 yards and two touchdowns in four seasons and 53 games with the Vikings.
Last offseason, the Vikings released Treadwell prior to the start of the 2019 season. He later re-signed with the Vikings following a few injuries at the position. With the Vikings more-than-willing to move on, Treadwell has agreed to sign with the Falcons.
The terms of the deal have not been announced at this time. Treadwell joins a wide receiver group that features Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley.
