Report: Vikings sign wide receiver Josh Doctson

Doctson will be reunited with Kirk Cousins.

After cutting first-round bust Laquon Treadwell, the Vikings will reportedly take a chance on wide receiver Josh Doctson, according to Adam Schefter.

Doctson, who was taken one pick ahead of Treadwell in the 2016 draft, was cut by Washington after three seasons, after securing 81 catches (44 in 2018) for 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns during his tenure with the Redskins

Those numbers look better than Treadwell's – who had just 56 catches with the Vikings – but Minnesota's hoping to find lightning in a bottle with Doctson.

Doctson will also be reunited with Kirk Cousins, as the duo spent two years together in Washington.
