Returns to practice squad

Treadwell reverted back to the Jags' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report.

Analysis: Treadwell did not see any targets on his nine offensive snaps. He will now work with the practice squad until he receives another chance to move onto the 53-man roster.

Moved up from practice squad

Treadwell was elevated from the practice squad Saturday.

Analysis: Treadwell actually got to work with starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence more than just about any other pass catcher during the preseason given the team's bizarre choice to delay the No. 1 overall pick officially being named the starter until late August, but it's hard to imagine he'll actually get many snaps given the healthy array of Jaguars wideouts. Expect the Jaguars to elevate Treadwell again next week with a real decision regarding his roster status coming in Week 4.

Sticks around Jacksonville

Treadwell was signed to the Jaguars' practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Treadwell was cut by the Jags ahead of Tuesday's roster deadline but will remain in the organization after passing through waivers unclaimed. The 2016 first-round pick appeared in five games for the Falcons last season, catching six passes for 49 yards and two touchdowns.

Jettisoned by Jacksonville

The Jaguars released Treadwell on Tuesday.

Analysis: Treadwell spent the preseason working to carve out a depth role in Jacksonville, but he'll now have to look elsewhere in the league for an opportunity. Last season Treadwell suited up for five games with the Falcons and handled a situational red-zone role, with six catches for 49 yards and two scores.

Earns contract with Jaguars

Treadwell signed with the Jaguars on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Treadwell joined the team's minicamp for a tryout and impressed enough to earn a contract. He was the 23rd overall pick back in the 2016 draft but has so far failed to live up to that pedigree, catching a total of 71 passes for 750 yards and four touchdowns over five years in the league. He spent last year with the Falcons' organization but didn't join the active roster until late in the year, catching a total of six passes in five games.

Trying out for Jaguars

Treadwell is trying out for Jacksonville at the team's minicamp, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Analysis: Treadwell has struggled to make much of an impact over the past few seasons, registering just 15 receptions for 233 yards and three scores over his last two seasons with Minnesota and Atlanta. He'll need to impress at minicamp just to have a shot at becoming a depth receiver for the Jags.

Ends season with two-catch outing

Treadwell secured two of his three targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Treadwell was elevated from the Falcons' practice squad late in the year, tallying five consecutive game appearances between Weeks 13 and 17 after going without a single activation prior to December. An injury to Julio Jones (hamstring) opened up opportunities for the 2016 first-round pick, as he totaled six catches for 49 yards with a pair of touchdown catches during that stretch. Treadwell's contract is up in March, rendering his status with the organization unsettled as Atlanta remains without a new general manager following the October firing of Thomas Dimitroff.

Gets second TD in three weeks

Treadwell caught both of his targets for 11 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Treadwell has only attracted four targets over the past three weeks, but two have gone for touchdowns. Having signed to the Falcons' practice squad Sept. 16, the 2016 first-round pick didn't make his regular-season debut with the team until Week 13. If Julio Jones (hamstring) were to return from his three-game absence to face the Buccaneers on Sunday, Treadwell's role would be liable to decrease for Atlanta's 2020 finale.

Dec 30, 2020 4:27 AM EST

Roles still growing?

Interim coach Raheem Morris said Wednesday "we're looking forward to seeing more of [Treadwell] this week," D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Analysis: Treadwell translated his lone target during last weekend's loss to the Chargers into a nine-yard touchdown, and it looks as he could once again be in line to handle an expanded role. The extent of the 2016 first-round pick's opportunities will likely come down to whether or not Julio Jones (hamstring), who couldn't practice Wednesday, misses his fifth straight game.

Dec 16, 2020 4:09 PM EST

Tallies first TD with new team

Treadwell hauled in his lone target for a nine-yard touchdown during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Chargers.

Analysis: With Treadwell having resided on Atlanta's practice squad for most of the campaign, Week 14 marked just the second time all season he's been active for a game. The 2016 first-round draft choice was afforded extra opportunity with Julio Jones (hamstring) sitting out his fourth contest of 2020 and Olamide Zaccheaus (toe) currently residing on IR. Looking ahead to a Week 15 matchup against Tampa Bay, Treadwell's workload is liable to remain sparse unless there are injuries above him on the WR depth chart.

Opportunity knocks

Interim coach Raheem Morris said Wednesday that Treadwell will take over Atlanta's "OZ role" in the wake of Olamide Zaccheaus (toe) being placed on IR, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Analysis: Treadwell signed with the active roster off the practice squad Tuesday, and it looks as though the 25-year-old will get an immediate chance to slot into a rotational role. By virtue of inheriting Zacchaeus' role, Treadwell stands to do most of his work outside the numbers, and lining up off the line of scrimmage could occasionally allow him to be used in motion. Of course, whenever both Julio Jones (toe) and Calvin Ridley are on the field, Treadwell's usage will likely be minimal.

Signs with Falcons' 53-man roster

Treadwell signed with the Falcons' active roster Tuesday.

Analysis: Treadwell was previously on the practice squad COVID-19 list, but he was restored and promoted following news that Olamide Zaccheaus (toe) will go to injured reserve. The 2016 first-round pick never gained his footing in Minnesota, recording a 65-701-2 line over four seasons. The 25-year-old will get a fresh start in Atlanta. He'll likely slot in as the No. 6 receiver to start off.

Dec 1, 2020 12:30 PM EST

Lands on reserve/COVID-19 list

Treadwell was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Analysis: The former first-rounder will be away from the facility for at least five days. With Treadwell now on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Falcons are signing linebacker James Carlock to the practice squad.

Nov 17, 2020 7:21 AM EST

Officially joins practice squad

Treadwell officially signed with the Falcons' practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Treadwell's move to join Atlanta's practice squad was announced Monday, but he's only now officially passed requisite COVID-19 testing. The 2016 first-round pick spent training camp with the team and reportedly struggled to overcome drop issues, but the Falcons at least saw enough out of Treadwell to continue monitoring his development.

Sep 16, 2020 10:19 AM EST

Joining Falcons' practice squad

Treadwell was added to Atlanta's practice squad Monday, pending the passing of COVID-19 testing, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Analysis: The 2016 first-round pick was unable to make Atlanta's 53-man roster, as the team instead elected to utilize Christian Blake, Olamide Zaccheaus, and Brandon Powell as depth options at wide receiver. With just one career kick return to his name, Treadwell perhaps does not offer equal special-teams upside as Blake or Zaccheaus. Struggles with drops during training camp did not help Treadwell's case for a roster spot, either, thus landing him in a reserve role to begin 2020.

Sep 14, 2020 8:23 PM EST

Let go by Falcons

The Falcons have released Treadwell, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: As a 2016 first-rounder, Treadwell carries name recognition, but his production with the Vikings last year was modest and he wasn't able to stick with the Falcons this time around. He'll look to catch on as a depth option elsewhere, but he's off the fantasy radar these days.

Sep 5, 2020 8:41 AM EST

Bad case of "the drops"

Treadwell has struggled with drops thus far in training camp, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: Dropped passes may be more forgivable errors to coaches than fumbles at least, but this update certainly does not bode well for Treadwell's bid to unseat Gage for the No. 3 receiver role. This trend is unfortunately not a new one for Treadwell, as he owns an astronomical drop rate of 10.1 percent over the past two seasons. It seems that Gage's status as the No. 3 option only grows more secure knowing this, while Olamide Zaccheaus and Jalen McCleskey each have an opportunity to move up should Treadwell's struggles persist.

Aug 24, 2020 4:10 PM EST

Heading to Atlanta

Treadwell signed a contract with the Falcons on Sunday, Zach Klein of WSB-TV reports.

Analysis: Treadwell hasn't lived up to his draft status as a first-round pick of the Vikings in 2016, but perhaps a change of scenery will help him take flight in Atlanta. Expectations should be tempered, as Treadwell will have a hard time carving out a major role in a deep receiving corps headlined by Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley.

Mar 22, 2020 3:09 PM EST

Another rocky season

Treadwell recorded nine receptions for 184 yards and a touchdown over 13 regular-season games in 2019.

Analysis: Treadwell didn't make the team out of training camp, but he rejoined the Vikings before Week 4 and played in every game for the rest of the regular season. The 2016 first-round pick logged more than 20 offensive snaps on just one occasion when the team rested its starters in Week 17 versus the Bears, and Treadwell was a healthy scratch for the first playoff game. Treadwell will be an unrestricted free agent this spring, and even if he re-ups with the Vikings, they'll likely add depth at wide receiver via free agency or the draft this offseason.

Jan 15, 2020 12:59 PM EST

Won't face Saints

Treadwell (coach's decision) is a healthy scratch for Sunday's playoff bout in New Orleans.

Analysis: Treadwell hasn't recorded a catch since Week 14 of the regular season, and his role in Minnesota's offense now appears to have been marginalized with Adam Thielen back in action. Alexander Hollins will work as the No. 4 wideout in his stead.
