Tajae Sharpe agrees to one-year deal with Vikings

Tajae Sharpe Vikings

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports (via Twitter) that receiver Tajae Sharpe is signing with the Vikings.

A source confirmed to ESPN that Sharpe would sign a one-year deal.

Sharpe wasn't a huge factor during his time in Tennessee, catching just 25 passes for 329 yards and four touchdowns last season.

The Minnesota Vikings have a notable void to fill in the receiving corps after trading Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills.

The former disgruntled Vikings receiver tweeted last Monday, after Minnesota had extended quarterback Kirk Cousins, that "It's time for a new beginning" and "Somethings going to happen". Prior to Wednesday, the Vikings only had two receivers with more than 10 career catches (Adam Thielen, Bisi Johnson).


With a run-first offense, Minnesota relies primarily on its top two receivers in the passing game.

With north of $80 million to spend in free agency, few expected the Buffalo Bills' marquee offseason addition to come through a trade.

He has appeared in 47 games, starting 29 of them, since Tennessee selected him in the fifth round of the 2016 draft and has 92 receptions for 1,167 yards and eight touchdowns.

Buffalo had already been aggressive about asking about Diggs' availability last season. He missed the entire 2017 campaign with a foot injury.
