Every date of note has been set up as a hurdle for Titans WR Tajae Sharpe to come back to earth. The start of camp. The first day in pads. The scrimmage situation at the stadium. Sharpe hasn’t flinched yet.
He doesn’t run away from people, but he gets open enough, gets to the right spot and doesn’t drop passes.
“We’re basically just hoping once he gets into the game, all the stuff we’ve been doing, it just flows,” offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie said. “The biggest thing for us is to just get him in the game and he doesn’t have to stand there and think; he just plays. When they blow the whistle and the game kicks off, hopefully he can just go play, just go play, just go play. We’re hoping we can get it all going, we’re hoping it’ll happen.”
Based on an ESPN article from earlier this month, Sharpe will play the outside opposite of Rishard Matthews with Kendell Wright in the slot. Dorial Green-Beckham continues to struggle which has opened the door for Sharpe. While nothing is set in stone quite yet, this is something to watch when the Titans play Saturday night.
