In a move to strengthen the depth of their wide receiver group, the Baltimore Ravens have reached an agreement with free agent receiver Laquon Treadwell on a one-year contract, per Treadwell’s agent, Michael Portner.

Laquon Treadwell, standing at 6’2″ and weighing 215 pounds, was originally drafted by the Minnesota Vikings as the 23rd overall pick in the 2016 Draft. However, Treadwell’s performance in the league did not live up to the expectations set for a high draft pick. As a result, he found himself moving between various teams over the years.

After his tenure with the Vikings, Treadwell had stints with the Atlanta Falcons, Jacksonville Jaguars, New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals, and Seattle Seahawks.

Treadwell’s most recent NFL experience came with the Seahawks in 2022, where he had a brief tenure. During that time, he appeared in six games, catching six passes for a total of 42 yards.

The receiver’s most productive season in the NFL came in 2021 while playing for the Jaguars. He appeared in 12 games, making seven starts and recording 33 receptions for 434 yards, along with one touchdown.

Throughout his NFL career, Treadwell has played in 76 games, starting 23 of them. He has accumulated 110 receptions for a total of 1,226 yards and has scored 5 touchdowns.

Although the Ravens have made several additions to their wide receiver corps this offseason, including the notable signings of Odell Beckham, Nelson Agholor and the return to health of Rashod Bateman.

Treadwell’s arrival is expected to provide depth to the roster. His signing will likely result in increased competition among the wide receiver group, with players such as Devin Duvernay, James Proche, and several others vying for a spot on the final 53-man roster during training camp.
