Loser: Tajae Sharpe, WR
Sharpe has done absolutely nothing to hurt his stock. However, in games under the lights he has also done nothing to help his stock.
I keep expecting to see a different Tajae Sharpe that flashes physicality and will go up and make a play, but he isn’t even getting the chance. Whether that is his fault for not creating more separation, or if the play should just be “give Sharpe a chance” the fact is that he really hasn’t done anything exceptional yet.
The Titans could go against the Pittsburgh Steelers and target him six times and end up with 75 yards and a TD, and if he does that then all of the preseason hype will be worth it and we can all believe that there is an evolved form of Tajae Sharpe running around.
However, there is a chance that he is just the same guy that he was last year. Ultimately that is fine, Sharpe is a solid and reliable target that can be on the field and actually help you, but the new and improved version doesn’t seem to be there.
Also, it is telling how quickly the Titans moved A.J. Brown up to the starting offense after very limited practice time.
