Reports out of Minnesota Vikings indicate that the Vikings are re-signing wide receiver Laquon Treadwell to shore up their WR corps.

It comes as little surprise that the Vikings called on Laquon Treadwell to help.

Minnesota, now facing Chad Beebe’s annual injury of an ankle sprain, are thinner than thin at the receiver position, a severely disappointing situation that really should have been avoided.

After newly signed wideout Josh Doctson fell quickly to the injury bug and was placed almost immediately on IR, the Vikings saw nothing but inexperience (and in Beebe’s case, complete physical undependability), in their depth.

The Vikings worked out a few NFL receivers last week, including former Eagles receiver Jordan Matthews, former Jets WR Deontay Burnett, and Bears WR Tanner Gentry, but let all leave the facility without contracts.

For now, they’ve re-found their man moving forward.  Which may be a week, a month, or the entire season.

The Vikings were already culpable for the guaranteed portion of Treadwell’s 2019 salary ($1.15 million) and were set to incur a total of $2,506,360 in dead cap money.

This either saves them a headache or maybe creates a new one for fans.

      It’s the right move. It’s just insurance. They were already paying him anyway.
