The Ravens signed veteran wide receiver Laquon Treadwell to a one-year contract Tuesday morning.
A former first-round pick (23rd overall) with the Vikings in 2016, Treadwell played six games with Seattle last season and caught six passes for 42 yards. He also spent time on the practice squads of the New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals last year.
Treadwell spent his first four NFL seasons with the Vikings and also played for the Falcons (2020) and Jaguars (2021). He had a career high 35 catches with Minnesota in 2018 and a career high 434 receiving yards with Jacksonville in 2021. During his seven-year career, Treadwell has 110 catches for 1,226 yards and five touchdowns.
Head Coach John Harbaugh said Treadwell will "be in the mix" to compete for a 53-man roster spot.
"[He's] really a determined guy – wants to be really good," Harbaugh said. "[He's] physical in practice and worked hard in the workout. He came out here and pretty much knew what he was doing, after getting here less than 24 hours ago. He didn't make a mistake out there. I think that says a lot about who he is."
Treadwell is the fifth wide receiver drafted in the first round on Baltimore's roster joining, Odell Beckham Jr., Rashod Bateman, Zay Flowers and Nelson Agholor.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Treadwell was the fourth wide receiver selected in the 2016 draft after a breakout junior season at Mississippi when he caught 82 passes for 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns.
In a corresponding roster move, the Ravens released undrafted quarterback Nolan Henderson from Delaware.
