4. Laquon Treadwell, WR (2021)

Every dog has his day and Laquon Treadwell got his in Jacksonville back in 2021. A first-round pick in 2016, the former Ole Miss Rebel had failed stints with the Minnesota Vikings and the Atlanta Falcons before joining the Jags in training camp. At the time, he seemed like nothing more than a depth move. However, he managed to stick around and eventually was promoted to the active roster midseason.

Treadwell made the most of his chances and logged a career-best 434 yards on an offense that was devoided of weapons. Still, he deserves credit for stepping up and giving a then-rookie Trevor Lawrence a reliable weapon in 2021. Following his time in Jacksonville, Treadwell has caught just eight passes for 58 yards the past two years.

3. Tre Herndon, CB (2018-2023)

This may be the end of the road for Tre Herndon, at least in Duval. An undrafted free agent in 2018, he worked his way up the depth chart and injuries pressed him into a starting role in 2019-2020. He was set to play nickel in 2021 before an MCL injury derailed his season. He sat out a handful of games and he wasn't particularly effective when he returned.

Nevertheless, the team's brass brought Herndon back on a one-year deal in 2022 and did the same last offseason. All things considered, he's stepped in when called upon but the fact that the Jags have not committed long-term to him could be a sign they'll move on when they find a better option, and that time might have just come.
