  • Highest average yards per punt return: 15.2
  • Most punt return yards in a game: 119
  • Punt return TDs in a season: 2
  • Punt return TDs in a career: 5
  • 1st Vikings’ player to have multiple games with more than 100 punt return yards: 2 games

To make room for Sherels and Treadwell’s returns, the Vikings have cut Devante Downs and placed Chad Beebe on IR.
