This is a great start for the Minnesota Vikings wide receiver, but it does seem to be coming quite late in the season.

Congratulations to Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Laquon Treadwell on his first career NFL catch. Hopefully, there will be many, many more of them in the future, including a first touchdown, in the not too distant future.
