Chargers Receivers Handling New Addition Better Than Tajae Sharpe (Allegedly)

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

On day one of the 2017 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Chargers both used top-seven picks on wide receivers. The Titans added Western Michigan’s Corey Davis and the Chargers took Clemson’s Mike Williams. Some wondered at the time how the Chargers’ receiving corps would handle the front office spending such a high pick on a guy that would be coming in to take their playing time. Thus far, there does not seem to be any cause for concern. Out in Tennessee, however, things are not quite so rosy.

The Titans players being sued are Tajae Sharpe and Sebastian Tretola. The man who brought the suit alleges that he was badly beaten by wide receiver Tajae Sharpe while the offensive lineman kept a look out. Sharpe’s agent, Blaine Roche, gave the following statement to Fox17:

“The claims are false and ridiculous. Unfortunately, this is a classic shakedown attempt. Tajae categorically denies any involvement whatsoever and looks forward to vindicating his name and focusing on what matters most - football.”

It’s still possible there is nothing to these claims, but for now, I’m just happy there is no drama coming out of the Chargers’ camp.
