Vikings agree to terms with receiver Tajae Sharpe

NFL Network is reporting that the Minnesota Vikings will sign receiver Tajae Sharpe, who caught 25 passes on 35 targets for the Tennessee Titans last season.

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.

In 2019, Sharpe hauled in 29 receptions for 329 yards and a career-high four touchdowns, helping Tennessee to a surprising run to the AFC Championship game.

The 49ers signed Zettel on December 23 after experiencing depth issues on the team's defensive line.

It is safe to say that replacing Diggs will certainly be a tall order for the Vikings heading into the 2020 National Football League season. Minnesota has five selections among the top 105 picks and could look to draft a receiver in the early rounds to compete for the No. 2 job in training camp. He played in 47 games (with 43 starts) for the Minutemen, and holds school records with 277 receptions and 3,486 receiving yards. He missed the 2017 season with a foot injury. He finished last season with San Francisco, appearing in all three playoff games, including the win over the Vikings.

A native of New Jersey, Sharpe starred at the University of MA.
