Shark Bites

Titans rookie WR Tajae Sharpe is off to a strong start in spring practices. “He’s been the most consistent (receiver)," HC Mike Mularkey said. "And we’re letting guys who have been the most consistent get more reps.” Sharpe has worked in with the 1st-team offense in OTAs and minicamps. The 5th-rounder is a lanky 6’2, 194 pounds with subpar athleticism. But he racked up 196 catches, 2,600 yards and 12 scores over the past 2 seasons at UMass. Sharpe will head to training camp behind at least Dorial Green-Beckham, Kendall Wright and Rishard Matthews on the depth chart, but none of those guys are locked into roles. The rookie will be worth monitoring this summer.

The Vikings inked WR Tajae Sharpe to a 1-year deal. The 2016 5th-rounder totaled just 92 catches across 4 seasons in Tennessee, with nearly half of those coming in his rookie campaign. Sharpe will have a shot to win the #2 WR job in Minnesota -- although we expect the Vikings to add a rookie or 2 in next month's draft.

The Tennessean reports that the Titans will place WR Tajae Sharpe on IR, ending his season. Sharpe had foot surgery in the offseason and reportedly re-injured the foot in Thursday night's preseason finale. The 2nd-year wideout would have been headed for a diminished role anyway after the Titans added Eric Decker, Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor at the position this offseason.

Titans WR Tajae Sharpe injured his foot last week and had surgery, HC Mike Mularkey announced Thursday. Sharpe is expected to be ready for training camp. Still, the missed time doesn't help a guy trying to hold off talented rookie Taywan Taylor for the #3 WR job. Neither Taylor nor Sharpe is on the redraft radar right now.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota had more good things to say about rookie WR Tajae Sharpe on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Rand Getlin: “[Tajae] makes it easy...creates separation in and out of [routes]...going to continue to expect these kinds of things out of him.” It can only help a receiver when his QB knows what to expect from him. Each passing week makes Sharpe look more intriguing at the late-round draft price he has continued to carry.

Titans WR Tajae Sharpe hauled in 6 balls for 68 yards in Saturday's preseason game. All 6 grabs came from QB Marcus Mariota, who said afterward that Sharpe has "made it easy to trust him." HC Mike Mularkey added that the rookie has "gained the trust of the coaching staff." This all follows what's reportedly been an impressive spring and summer for Sharpe. He appears locked in to 1 of the starting outside WR spots and has a shot to lead Titans WRs in fantasy points.
