The Jacksonville Jaguars signed wide receiver Laquon Treadwell to a contract on Friday.

Treadwell, 26, has endured a slow start to his NFL career since being selected by the Minnesota Vikings with the 23rd overall pick of the 2016 draft. He has recorded 71 receptions for 750 yards and four touchdowns in 58 career games with the Vikings and Atlanta Falcons.

Treadwell caught six passes for 49 yards and a career-best two scores in five games with the Falcons in 2020.

Wide receiver Jon'Vea Johnson was waived in a corresponding move. Johnson, 25, initially was acquired of waivers from the Dallas Cowboys on March 20.
