Interestingly enough, Doctson was selected one pick ahead of the Vikings back in 2016. Minnesota elected to draft Laquon Treadwell, who was also waived last weekend.
The Redskins had been trying to trade Doctson for a few years, but no deal ever surfaced and the team made the decision to move on from him on Saturday.
Doctson, 26, was taken in the first round out of TCU in 2016 by the Redskins. He signed a four-year, $10.049 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $1,820,406 for the 2019 season when the Redskins released him this past weekend.
In 2018, Doctson appeared in 15 games for the Redskins and caught 44 passes for 532 yards receiving (12.1 YPC) and two touchdowns.
