The injury bug continues to bite Atlanta’s WR group — this time it’s Olamide Zaccheaus

Treadwell is one of the more notable First Round WR busts in recent memory, and he never got a shot with the Falcons after he was signed this offseason following 4 forgettable years with Minnesota. It’s not all his fault, he was never quite the same after a gruesome leg injury suffered at Ole Miss. Treadwell was cut by the Falcons in September before being re-signed to the practice squad a couple days later. He’s been there all season, but with Julio Jones and Olamide Zaccheaus out, he may get his big chance at redemption against New Orleans on Sunday. Treadwell had 65 catches for 701 yards and 2 TDs with Minnesota from 2016-2019.
