The Minnesota Vikings are expected to decline the fifth-year option for wide receiver Laquon Treadwell by Friday’s deadline, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The option on Treadwell for the 2020 season would be for roughly $10 million.

Treadwell, who turns 24 in June, has largely been a disappointment since the Vikings made him the 23rd pick in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Ole Miss.

He has 56 catches for 517 yards and just one touchdown in 40 games. Eighteen players who were also drafted in 2016 have gained more receiving yards than Treadwell, including four tight ends and four running backs.
