Mike Zimmer says wide receiver Laquon Treadwell needs to get out of his own way
Wide receiver Laquon Treadwell was the 23rd overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. Despite his first-round selection by the Minnesota Vikings, Treadwell has struggled to be productive through his first two seasons in the NFL.
Speaking at the NFL Combine on Thursday, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said that Treadwell needs to stop incurring the self-inflicted problems that have plagued him through the first two seasons.
Sam is not the kid that you speed date. He’s the kid that you marry, Palmer said. As he goes through this process and gets to spend a bunch of time with Cleveland and some of these other teams, it’s very predictable for people like myself that are in his circle, that people will fall in love the more they get to know him.
If, for some reason, the Browns pass on Darnold, he likely will wind up in New York with one of the two teams picking at 2 and 3.
It would be awesome, Darnold said of playing in New York. I just want to go wherever I’m wanted. Whoever wants to pick me up, I’ll be happy to play there.
Something tells me the fans of that team will be plenty happy, too.
Well, Matt’s in Chicago, so he knows all about him, Veach said. When teams watch Albert, they’ll understand how valuable he is. We certainly feel the same way. We’d be super excited to get him back, but we know we have to go through the process here.
Wilson caught 42 passes for 554 yards last year, including a 10-catch, 147-yard game in Week 17 (when Patrick Mahomes started at quarterback).
The Bears obviously need help at receiver, and have been mentioned as a possible trade destination for Jarvis Landry.
What Cousins — perhaps unwittingly — has done, though, is change the way coveted free agents negotiate with teams from now on. Surely, now that G-word will be much more a part of conversations.
Here are three other observations from the frenetic eve of the first day of the NFL free-agent signing period:
Drew Brees stays in New Orleans. Good for him and the Saints.
