On Wednesday, the Minnesota Vikings announced the addition of free-agent wide receiver Tajae Sharpe, who spent the last four years with the Tennessee Titans.

After their decision to trade Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills last week, the Minnesota Vikings immediately created a need to improve their wide receiver depth before the 2020 season.

On Wednesday, the Vikings added someone who they hope will be able to contribute in making up for the production lost with the departure of Diggs. Tasked with trying to fill Minnesota’s tremendous void on their roster is former Tennessee Titans wide receiver, Tajae Sharpe.

The Vikings announced the addition of Sharpe on Wednesday and the deal with the pass-catcher is reportedly for one year according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.

It’s unclear what exactly Minnesota’s plans are for their new receiver, but it should be expected that he’ll be in the mix for one of the top spots on the depth chart behind Adam Thielen.

Selected by the Titans in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Sharpe is a 6-foot-2, 194-pound pass-catcher who at 25-years-old, still has plenty of potential to develop into a solid contributor. What does his previous production in the league reveal about what he could possibly add to the Vikings in 2020?
