Vikings to sign ex-Titan WR Tajae Sharpe

Vikings to sign ex-Titan WR Tajae Sharpe”

A source confirmed to ESPN that Sharpe would sign a one-year deal.

The Minnesota Vikings traded one of their most explosive offensive weapons last week when they sent Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills, and they are hoping a less expensive signing can help replace him.

Sharpe will be in the mix for Minnesota's No. 2 receiver spot opposite Adam Thielen.

The former disgruntled Vikings receiver tweeted last Monday, after Minnesota had extended quarterback Kirk Cousins, that "It's time for a new beginning" and "Somethings going to happen". With Thielen missing almost two months with a hamstring injury in 2019, the discrepancy between Diggs (1,130 yards) and Thielen (418) and the Vikings' other receivers - Bisi Johnson (294 yards), Laquon Treadwell (184), Chad Beebe (70) and Alexander Hollins (46) - was noticeable. He saw action with the last two of those teams during the 2019 season.

Sharpe's busiest season was his rookie year in 2016, when he caught seven passes for 76 yards in his first National Football League game against the Vikings and finished the season with 41 catches for 522 and two touchdowns after the Titans drafted him in the fifth round that year. He missed the entire 2017 campaign with a foot injury. He appeared in four games for the Bengals before joining the Niners late in the regular season.
