Seahawks sign Laquon Treadwell to practice squad, release WR

According to a report by Jeremy Fowler at ESPN, the Seahawks are signing free agent wide receiver Laquon Treadwell to their practice squad.

Treadwell (6-foot-2, 215 pounds) was a former first-round pick by the Vikings in 2016. As a rookie, Treadwell saw just three targets and he never really caught on in Minnesota. After only scoring three touchdowns in four seasons the Vikings let his rookie contract expire. He signed with the Falcons in 2020 and appeared in five games with them that year. He spent last season with the Jaguars, posting a career-high 434 receiving yards in 12 games, but still only managed to score one touchdown.

Just before the 2022 season began Jacksonville released Treadwell. He spent about a month on the Patriots’ practice squad earlier this year, followed by a couple of weeks on the Cardinals’ practice squad.

All together, Treadwell has played in 70 career NFL games, totaling 104 catches, 1,184 yards and five touchdowns.

Update:

The team has announced the Treadwell signing. To make room, wide Receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside was released from the practice squad.
