Tuesday, February 21, 2017 5:11 PM EST
Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell was dogged by lower-body injuries all year long and finished his rookie season with only one catch for 15 yards.

(Treadwell) is going to be like any young player that's going from year one to year two. This is going to be an offseason that is very critical. … He came in and kind of had little nagging things that kind of kept him from full-time early. … He did well when he got in the game, he didn't get targeted often, but he blocked well and he competed. That's really the starting point for any young player,' Shurmur said.
