Stacey Barchenger of the Tennessean reports that a man in Nashville has filed a lawsuit against Titans WR Tajae Sharpe and OL Sebastian Tretola, which alleges he was beaten up by the two players on April 27.
“The alleged victim who is named as a plaintiff in the lawsuit came to the Midtown Hills precinct (Wednesday) and met with the investigation team and we do have an open investigation taking place,” Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron said.
Sharpe’s agent calls the claims against his “ridiculous” and adding that Tajae “unequivocally denies” any involvement in the matter.
“The claims are ridiculous,” Sharpe’s agent, Blaine Roche, told The Tennessean. “Tajae unequivocally denies any and all involvement and he looks forward to vindicating his name, clearing his name of any and all wrongdoing here.”
Sharpe allegedly became upset the team used a first-round pick on WR Corey Davis and he “took exception” to the comments made by the alleged victim, Dante R. Satterfield. Sharpe and Tretola allegedly asked Satterfield to step outside and then punched him in the face, rendering him unconscious.
Sharpe, 22, is a former fifth-round pick of the Titans back in 2016. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $2.61 million rookie contract and stands to make base salaries of $540,000 and $630,000 over the next two years.
In 2016, Sharpe appeared in all 16 games for the Titans and caught 41 passes for 522 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 95 receiver out of 115 qualifying players.
