Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell mentioned on Wednesday that he will meet with the Chargers, Dolphins, Browns, Cowboys, Panthers, Vikings, 49ers and Bengals in the weeks leading up too the draft.
Treadwell also said he’s taking the whole process “very seriously.”
“I take it very seriously. I take everything at this point like this is my job and treat everything I do like it’s my job,” he said, via NFL.com. “I treat everybody with respect because you never know what everybody else can do for you or what doors might open up for you. I’m excited about it all and it’s nothing anybody in my family has experienced so it will be fun.”
“We will continue to pursue all avenues to make our team better as we prepare for the 2016 season. In a perfect world a trade is a win-win for both sides and we believe there is upside to all parties involved in this deal.
“We were able to acquire a higher pick to help us continue to build our team. We wish Martellus nothing but the best as he continues his career in New England.”

“I truly believe deep down in my heart that something will get done,” Mathieu said. “It’s not one of those things that’s easy. It’s going to take a little bit of time. I don’t necessarily have a true position, so there’s different things that go into it.”
Mathieu did, however, admit that it could take some time and he anticipates it being “kind of a wrestling match.”
“It’s gonna be kind of a wrestling match but at the end of the day as long as we understand it’s a business and as long as we take care of our relationships I think it’ll be all right,” Mathieu said. “But like I said I’m not really focused on the contract side of things it’s more about me getting healthy and really trying to dominate next year.”
