Laquon Treadwell

It looks like Laquon Treadwell's tenure in Minnesota is finally coming to an end.

NFL insider Ian Rapport reported on Saturday morning that the Vikings are "moving on" from the wide receiver, whether it's via trade or an outright release.

ESPN's Courtney Cronin followed up, saying Treadewell will be released by 3 p.m. if the Vikings aren't able to find a trade partner.

The former first-round pick from the 2016 NFL Draft secured just 56 catches (35 in 2018) in his three seasons with the Vikings.

With Treadwell being cut, Brandon Zylstra or Dillion Mitchell could end up making the 53-man roster to round out the wide receiving core.

NFL rosters have to be cut down to 53 players by 3 p.m. CT. Stay tuned for more updates.
