After a drama-filled tenure in the nation's capital ended in the Washington Redskins preferring mid-round talent over a former first-round receiver out of TCU, Josh Docton joins a familiar face in Minnesota after reportedly agreeing to a deal with the Vikings per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
And now Josh Doctson and Kirk Cousins are teammates again, this time in Minnesota. https://t.co/mlNmWKVl6T— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 2, 2019
The Vikings are appending the 26-year-old to a receiving corps that includes top-tier pass-catchers, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.
The Skins travel to Minnesota on October 24th for a primetime Thursday night matchup with the Vikings, where former Redskin Kirk Cousins will be looking to rewrite his night game resume.
The initial domino that made this move possible was the Vikings releasing wide-receiver, Laquon Treadwell. Building upon the irony of this entire situation, Treadwell and Doctson both went in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft.
Doctson now has a second chance to prove he's capable of living up to his draft position, but Redskins fans sure hope he doesn't display that in late October.
