Titans WR Tajae Sharpe Accused Of Assault

Titans wide receiver Tajae Sharpe has been accused of assault in a federal civil suit, according to Stacey Barchenger of the Tennessean."<strong

Nashville police are investigating Dante Satterfield’s claims that Sharpe beat him until he was rendered unconscious outside a bar on April 27. Sharpe was allegedly upset at the Titans’ first-round selection of fellow wideout Corey Davis, and “took exception” to Satterfield’s comments about the draft choice. After the group left the bar out a back door, Sharpe reportedly punched Satterfield in the face while Titans offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola stood watch.

Satterfield is now dealing with broken bones in his face, a perforated eardrum, and a concussion, and is seeking $500K in damages. Sharpe’s lawyer, for what it’s worth, calls Satterfield’s claims “ridiculous.”

Clearly, given how the situation plays out, Sharpe could be in danger of not only earning a league-imposed suspension, but losing his roster spot altogether. Tretola, too, could face discipline depending on his level of involvement.

    Not a good look for Sharpe regardless of how this plays out. Someone had to have broken that dude’s face, and there’s bigger fish to angle for if the guy is just throwing out names at random looking for money. We’ll see what happens I guess.

    Jon Robinson seems like a you only get 1 strike. If you don’t seem sincere then he will probably part ways with you. Assault to me isn’t a strike issue, I’d wash my hands and move on. Robinson is building character and hard work right now. Don’t jeopardize what your doing. With all that said, I hope Sharpe learns from this and removes himself from situations that could be avoided. He’s young so I hope he can mature and be successful. But as a Titans fan, I would like to see Robinson make a point and let him go.

    That’s what happens when the NFL hires a bunch of gang members to play in their league
