The Minnesota Vikings wide receiver was recently named by ESPN as a possible veteran who could be cut by the team before the start of the regular season.

For Laquon Treadwell, it’s been a rough three years in the NFL since he was drafted in the first round by the Minnesota Vikings in 2016. Treadwell has yet to live up to the expectations he was given when the Vikings drafted him and his time to make an impact is beginning to run out.

Currently in the final year of his rookie contract, the young wide receiver might have already played his last regular season game in a Minnesota uniform.

ESPN recently published a list of 32 veteran players who could be cut before the upcoming season and Treadwell was among those selected. ESPN’s Courtney Cronin believes the 24-year-old wide receiver could be one of the Vikings’ roster casualties this summer.

"“The Vikings will give Treadwell every opportunity to contend for the No. 3 receiver position in training camp, but unlike last spring, he didn’t do much to separate himself from the competition during OTAs and minicamp. Treadwell is in danger of not making the 53-man roster if the likes of Chad Beebe, Jordan Taylor and a handful of rookie receivers beat him out for the role he hasn’t been able to grasp since he arrived in Minnesota.”"

Honestly, it’s even surprising that Treadwell is still a current member of the Vikings’ roster. Unfortunately, Minnesota hasn’t been able to see the writing on the wall and realize that Treadwell is likely never going to help them in any way moving forward.

Treadwell being a first-round draft pick probably has a lot to do with why he’s still with the Vikings. If he was selected in the second round or later, it’s highly unlikely that he would still have a job with Minnesota.

But Treadwell is still a member of the Vikings and this summer is basically his last shot to prove he is worth keeping around.

If he ends up having an uneventful training camp and preseason this year, not only could his time in Minnesota come to a close, but his future in the NFL will likely be in limbo as well.
