Falcons sign WR Tajae Sharpe

The Atlanta Falcons signed wide receiver Tajae Sharpe on Monday, providing a reunion with Falcons head coach Arthur Smith, who served as Sharpe’s offensive coordinator with the Tennessee Titans in 2019.

Sharpe had 92 catches for 1,167 yards and eight touchdowns in 47 games (29 starts) with the Titans from 2016-19, but he did not make a reception in four games last season with the Minnesota Vikings.

The 26-year-old was the Titans’ fifth-round draft pick (No. 140 overall) out of Massachusetts in 2016.

Sharpe provides the Falcons with depth at the wideout position, where Julio Jones has indicated that he is seeking to be traded out of Atlanta.
