The Detroit Lions worked out former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell on Wednesday, per a report by ESPN’s Field Yates.

Treadwell was selected by the Vikings 23rd overall in the 2016 NFL draft. His career up to this point has been disappointing, as he failed to truly break into the regular receiving rotation in Minnesota. He was let go by the team after totaling only 517 yards and a touchdown on 56 catches through the first three years of his career.

Detroit worked out the receiver in hopes to add more depth at wide receiver. While the first three spots on the depth chart are set, none of the depth players behind Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones Jr. or Danny Amendola had a stand out preseason.

As Yates mentioned, the receiver recently also worked out with the Buffalo Bills.

There are no reports as to whether or not Treadwell was, or will be, offered a contract by the Lions. However, the Lions did sign wide receiver Marvin Hall to their practice squad earlier on Wednesday.
