Much like the Chiefs, the Oakland Raiders are another team looking for receiver depth after two entrenched options.
After the offseason acquisition of Antonio Brown (pending his helmet and feet issues) and the signing of Tyrell Williams, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has the guys he wants out there in two-wide sets. But what happens when Oakland wants to spread things out a bit?
That answer could come in the form of Treadwell, who could play on the outside opposite Williams while Brown plays in the slot. While it might not look appealing on paper, a game of connecting the dots shows that the Raiders could be interested.
According to Raiders Wire’s Marcus Mosher, current Oakland general manager Mike Mayock had Treadwell ranked as the top receiver on his board prior to the 2016 draft while he was an analyst for NFL Network.
A fan of Treadwell’s physical style and hands at the time, Mayock declared that the Vikings got a winner and that old man crush could pop up again in his new gig with the Raiders.
If Mayock and Gruden decide to pull the trigger, Treadwell will join a long list of reclamation projects who have attempted to revive their career with Oakland. If anything, a trade to the silver and black would at least bring Treadwell’s Raider hat controversy full circle.
