Laquon Treadwell Making His Way To Minneapolis

It's cool when you know a guy who knows a guy that had something cool happen.

David Fucillo, who we know as "Fooch," is the lead guy over at Niners Nation and does a lot of work at the main SB Nation offices. His stepbrother, J. Freeman, is a big Vikings fan. . .so he's got that going for him, which is nice.

Well, it turns out that "J" flew from Chicago to Minneapolis this morning, and just happened to find himself on the same flight to the Twin Cities as a guy that most of us are all waiting to get to know.

That would be newly-drafted Minnesota Vikings' wide receiver Laquon Treadwell.

Fooch sent me this picture that his stepbrother took on the flight to Minneapolis that either just landed or is getting ready to land. Sure, it's just a hat, but I'm guessing there aren't a lot of Minnesota Vikings hats on the flight. Also, this sort of leads me to believe that it's the real deal.

So, we can be assured that there isn't going to be any sort of holdout or anything. . .Laquon Treadwell is really going to be a Minnesota Viking.

Thanks for the picture, J!

Eric is going to be back at Winter Park today, and he'll have plenty to tell us about Laquon Treadwell's introductory press conference, among other things.

UPDATE: And now we have one of him at the airport. Hooray!
