The Kansas City Chiefs are expected to bring in former Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Titans wide receiver Tajae Sharpe for a workout. Sharpe is expected to sign following a successful workout.
Last season for the Tennessee Titans, Sharpe had 25 catches for 329 yards and 4 TD's. This past offseason Sharpe ended up signing a one-year, $1,500,000 deal with the Minnesota Vikings to help replace the production of Stefon Diggs who was traded to Buffalo. Unfortunately for Sharpe, he only appeared in four games for the Vikings and didn't record a single catch. Sharpe failed to find a role and was buried due to the emergence of rookie wide receiver Justin Jefferson.
With the Chiefs most likely signing Sharpe, you can expect him to come onto the practice squad to get up to speed before making his way up to the main roster as a replacement for Marcus Kemp who was recently signed away by the Miami Dolphins. What Sharpe brings to the table is a big, physical receiver that gives you another option outside of Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson at WR3 or WR4 at 6'2", 200 lbs, but Sharpe can be a tad more productive if used correctly. in this case, Sharpe can also play some special teams before stepping in at receiver. This move should be beneficial as Sharpe could give some nice depth and insurance in case Sammy Watkins or someone else goes down again. At just 25 years old still, the former 5th-round pick could still have some upside that intrigues the Chiefs.
