Breer admits that the Vikings are unlikely to get anything “significant” in return for Treadwell at this point, but there’s at least a chance that a receiver-needy team could offer a Day 3 pick for the former first-rounder.
Reports dating back to the offseason mentioned that Treadwell was among the available players for trade, but it appears as though there isn’t enough interest in him to complete a deal.
Treadwell, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Vikings back in 2016. He’s in the final year of his four-year, $9,934,980 contract that included a signing bonus of $5,425,440.
The Vikings declined Treadwell’s fifth-year option back in April, which means he’ll make a base salary of $1.8 million before becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2020.
In 2018, Treadwell appeared in 15 games for the Vikings, catching 35 passes for 302 yards (8.6 YPC) and one touchdown.
