The Lions feel a bit thin at wide receiver entering the season, and they're looking for reinforcements.
The team worked out former first-round pick Laquon Treadwell this week after he was cut by the Vikings, according to Field Yates.
While the Lions' top three receivers look solid in Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola, backups Chris Lacy and rookie Travis Fulgham are question marks. Lacy does contribute on special teams, which gives him added value.
Treadwell got scant special teams work in Minnesota.
Detroit, breaking in a new offense, opens the season Sunday at Arizona. Should Treadwell sign with the team, he'd be unlikely to contribute for at least a couple weeks.
