Titans WR Sharpe could start season on PUP list
- ESPN Titans reporter Cameron Wolfe believes WR Tajae Sharpe may start the season on PUP with a foot injury. He is reportedly healing at a slow pace following offseason foot surgery.
- The 2016 fifth-round rookie turned heads last preseason and had his best game of season Week 1 against Minnesota, but failed to make an impact as the season progressed, finishing the year with a grade of 50.3 (96th out of 115 qualifying wide receivers).
- Sharpe did not play more than 20 snaps in any game from Week 8 on after doing so five of the first seven weeks. His 1.08 yards per route run was tied for 79th of all wide receivers in 2016.
- Tennessee drafted WR Corey Davis with the fifth pick in this year’s draft and signed free agent WR Eric Decker shortly thereafter, making Sharpe’s tumble down the depth chart even more apparent.
