Laquon Treadwell has won the team’s No. 3 receiver job. It would be shocking if he receives more targets than Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen or even Kyle Rudolph, but the 2016 first-round pick is at least at least in a position to build on an uneventful first two seasons that produced a combined 21 catches, 215 yards and zero touchdowns.
Treadwell is expected to work opposite Diggs in three-receiver sets, allowing Thielen to continue thriving from the slot.
Offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur oversaw the league’s fastest-moving offense in pace neutral situations for the Rams in 2017 while the Titans ranked only 28th.
It remains to be seen if second-year receiver Taywan Taylor will have a chance to benefit from the change, as he worked behind Tajae Sharpe and Corey Davis in Week 3 while incumbent starter Rishard Matthews further muddled the depth chart by returning to practice.
